Use our Nuwave all the time even when on 30 amps. Just have to careful of using other high draw items if you are on a 30 amp site.

We use our T-Fal air fryer frequently while camping. We only use it outside, plugged into the outside outlet as we don't want it running in our small trailer. Even with A/C on, it is no problem.

We got a 1700w Ninja Max air fryer last month that I planned on using while camping but didn't give it any thought about its power usage. After seeing this tread I decided to breakout my AmWatt Appliance Load Tester to see what it's actually pulling.

Highest Setting, Max Crisp: 1650 watts and 13.5 Amps
Lowest Setting, Reheat: 1608 watts and 13.4 Amps

Unfortunately we have not yet been able to defeat the laws of physics and this is exhibited in many of the latest kitchen appliances. Energy( watts) = cooking speed.

Our small Cozyna Air Fryer draws 1350 watts when heating.

Below comments applies only to 30 amp limited operation:

At 120 volts AC, that means it draws 11.25 amps when heating and much less when just "convecting" with the fan only.

While a unmodified 13.5k AC draws about 12-13 amps "on speed" cooling, current can spike up to 25 amps (for several seconds - usually not enough of an overload alone to trip the breaker) starting the compressor and fan.

On the face of it, using one AC and the Air Fryer is doable. However, a low battery that is charging, fridge or water heater on electric, or any large AC or DC current draw would pop a breaker (main or pedestal).

Herk7769 says it all! You have to consider everything that's plugged in. Most people only consider the "big draw" items and nothing else when trying to determine if they can plug something in without popping a breaker. It's a cumulative effect; if it's got a switch or requires any power to operate, it's using amps. Don't forget tv's, clocks, lamps, computers and cell phone chargers! I subtract 10% of the total power available (i.e 30 Amp) to account for these types of items. I also use the basic formula (Watts/Volts=Amp) to determine if an item is going to present a problem based on the adjusted available power.

Air fryer

I am hooked up to 50 amp at our resort and I use an air fryer. It certainly will draw lots of current and if plugged in to a circuit using power for something else, it will trip the breaker for that circuit. I just make sure nothing else is on that circuit and it works fine.

Air Fryer

I guess using one of these Air Fryer's is mainly out of the question for us. We were thinking about buying one but we boondock 90% of the time winters. Our 1.1 KW solar system maintains all we do (including running the residential refrigerator) for a good camping experience (in the SW). We hate running the generator.
