What’s an Air Fryer?
An air fryer is essentially a small convection oven that uses electrical elements to heat the air around your food. Hot air fans around and quickly cooks your dishes. The result is crispy, quickly-cooked food that requires only a small amount of oil, or no oil at all.
What Are the Benefits of an Air Fryer?
There are many benefits to using an air fryer, the biggest being speed. And when compared to deep frying or pan frying, using an air fryer is also healthier because much less oil is required. Designed to be lightweight and easy to clean and store, air fryers deliver both while remaining super convenient.
What Can I Make With an Air Fryer?
There are many easy things you can make with an Air Fryer. Popular items include potatoes, bacon, chicken (nuggets, tenders, wings and more) and brussel sprouts.
Who Can Benefit the Most from an Air Fryer?
Anyone can benefit from an air fryer, specifically busy families, college students, singles or seniors. Depending on the size of your air fryer basket, you may not be able to cook large amounts of food at once. My 13 year-old regularly makes himself snacks with our air fryer, proof that air fryers are easy to use.
