The item came with little instructions. I didn't know how to make the chicken or fries as pictured. I seasoned chicken and placed it on the crisper. I was pleased. Though not as shown, the chicken was fairly crisp outside and juicy inside.
Fries fries were a disaster. I tried lightly oiling them and baked, and the grease remained on top and left a greasy product. I tried cooking without the oil, and the potatoes took forever to cook and were too hard to eat. I had tested them along the way. AWFUL is the word. Perhaps frozen fries or frozen breaded chicken might work. I must say it was a disappointment.
I purchased three; gave one away and still have one I can't give to anyone else. DISAPPOINTED.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
