The Best Air Fryer Is a Convection Toaster Oven

The Best Air Fryer Is a Convection Toaster Oven

When we first tested air fryers, in 2017, most of the models we found were small, pod-shaped appliances that looked like they’d be more at home in a sci-fi movie than on a kitchen counter. They couldn’t hold much food, and they yielded mediocre results. If you really want an air fryer, we found that the Philips Avance Collection Airfryer HD9641/96 is better than most (though not great). But since air frying is really just convection baking, we think most people would be better off with a convection toaster oven, such as our top pick, the Cuisinart Chef’s Convection Toaster Oven (TOB-260N1), which does everything an air fryer can do, plus more.

Wooden domino row building machine

I first built a domino row building machine of this type in 1985 out of Lego, then built it again from memory in 2009 to make a video of it. The machine works by pushing a magazine full of dominoes forward along the table while a slider pushes them out one at a time as the machine slowly drives along.

In a new version of the project, Matthias Wandel of Woodgears.ca builds an automated domino row building machine with wood, including over 300 handcrafted wooden dominoes. He chronicles the build on his site and in the video above.

After you’ve watched that, check out his 2009 LEGO Technic version:

…as well as a disassembly video that might be useful for making your own:

Previous work from Wandel: A hand-cranked, wooden Slinky escalator and a Binary Marble Adding Machine.
