Have you purchased an air fryer yet? I am so in love with this small appliance that it has a permanent place on my countertop. The air fryer is simply amazing! We use it at least once a week, my kids especially love air fried chicken tenders and of course, who can resist french fries.
It seems that the craze right now is healthier, less greasy foods. The air fryer is perfect for this as it uses hot circulated air to cook the food which means you get that great crispy texture without the fat. In fact, most air fryer recipes use 70-80% less oil than you would use if you deep fried instead.
It’s so easy to use too. Just turn on the air fryer and put your food into the hot basket. Wait a few minutes and check the basket for something hot, crispy and delicious

Is Air Fried food healthy?
Air fried food is definitely healthier than its deep fried counterpart. Some air fried foods may contain high calorie ingredients like cheese and butter, so you should evaluate each air fryer recipe on a case by case basis to see if it is indeed healthy.
What are the benefits of using an air fryer?
The biggest benefit to the air fryer is getting that deep fried crispy texture without using cups and cups of oil. The air fryer also offers easy clean up, and because the hot air circulates, it makes the food crispy all over instead of just on top like a traditional oven. It also can be quicker to cook food in an air fryer instead of an oven.
