Power air fryer oven

My daughter bought me one of these for Christmas.  I have no idea or experience using it.  Has anyone used one?  If so please tell me your experience and your cooking techniques.

Go to YouTube and type in power air fryer oven into the search box. 
 
As you type the last letter a drop down menu will appear displaying all the videos relating to that product.  The ones that you will find most useful are power air fryer oven review and power air fryer oven recipes.
 
The most useful such videos are from 'normal folk' "playing" with their new toy in their own kitchens.
 
EDIT #1:  Here's a good example of a "normal guy" trying various cooking toys.  Rather than the 'professionally produced' commercials and demonstrations, videos such as these show you the results (and frustrations) one might reasonably expect in your own kitchen.
 
EDIT #2:  To answer your question directly, my experience with the air frying function of my new toy has been a revelation.  It produces "restaurant quality deep fry" results on products that pretty much always disappoint using either conventional or convection ovens. 
 
So far, I've gotten great results with Tyson's Frozen Hot Buffalo Wings, Sea Pak Frozen Breaded Jumbo Shrimp, and Arby's Frozen Curly-Fries.  I even fried a ribeye steak in it with a good result!
 
The primary advantage of air frying is a "deep far fry" result (with no added fat!) without the smell, expense, or horrid mess of deep fat frying.  And, at least with my unit, clean-up is a snap.

And one more ting... products such as Tyson's Frozen Hot Buffalo Wings, Sea Pak Frozen Breaded Jumbo Shrimp, and Arby's Frozen Curly-Fries already have oil in their breading.  That is to give a result that only
resembles "fried" from oven heating.
 
However, put such products in an air fryer and the result will be 'sizzling crisp'Do not add any oil, even a tiny squirt of EVOO is unnecessary.
 
Only when frying foods from raw do you add oil, and even then a tiny squirt of EVOO is all that is recommended.  For that, get yourself an EVOO mister.
 
FYI, here on Roadfood I have shared my air-frying experience(s) in posts 422 and 423 on this thread.

Boring.  Get Pittsburgh Dad as the test subject instead.

I tried.
But he had thrown his air-fryer at the TV.
