Cooking with hot air...

I'm familiar with the product called the "Jet Stream Oven", but i'm trying to find a product that came out years ago that was a skillet that cooked food with hot air. One of the examples on the infomercial showed them using this skillet to fry chicken without using any cooking oil. I can't remember the name of the product and i'm desperately wanting to know if i could find this somewhere because i want one. Please help...anyone with information on this, please email me. Thank you.

I'm not trying to find the Jet Stream oven, i found that easily...the product i'm looking for is shaped like a regular skillet that comes up to like a flat top pyramid almost in the middle of it. The hot air circulates through that and cooks the food. Thanks for the replies everyone, but the Jet Stream oven isn't the correct product.

It's called a Turbocooker, I think. That odd infomertial woman named "Kathy" pitched it.

By the way, though ... it's impossible to "fry" anything without oil. You could cook it without oil -- with dry heat -- but that's not frying. You can do this already using your oven.

Yes! Her.

She's on nearly every Saturday here pitching something that looks like a weird omelette maker.

Go to Amazon and read the reviews first, kingofmemphis. Mixed, but more positive than negative.
