Air fryer

Out of interest, has anyone had success with baking bread in an air fryer? Our Philips Air Fryer produces such succulent roasts, that makes me think it could replicate steam for an oven bake, depending....

on late-night informercials.  It seems like it would be similar to a miniature convection oven.

I have nothing useful to offer - I'm just  posting because I'm curious to see what people think and I want to track this thread.

Good luck!

... I found a recipe for dinner rolls, so with 1 1/2 hours preparation/proofing, followed by 15 minutes in the Air Fryer, "voila" - nine delicately textured, sweet dinner rolls.  Quite delicious.  Now to adapt for sourdough.

What do the bottoms look like?

... but I did proof/air-fry/bake them on aluminium foil.

to brown the bottoms might be recommended.  Would you do it half way through once?   or twice returning the upper surface to finish browning?

... I will remove the foil for the last five minutes as total bake time is only 13-15 minutes @160C

Saw this thread and it caught my attention as there was a small discussion on a youtube channel about making bread in a air fryer.  A couple had stated they had made bread in it and it came out great.  Have to adjust for temps, time and the size of the bread, you can't put in what would be a tall or large loaf in a 3 qt air fryer for example.

I have baked turnover/tarts in my air fryer, biscuits don't do that good as you need to turn them over every five minutes to keep them from burning and get the inside done from watching one video, but haven't tried it myself.  

I'm not so sure I would want to make bread in my air fryer, but I have read of some doing so.
