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! There are literally thousands of air fryer recipes you can make. We use it at least once a week, my kids especially love air fried chicken tenders and of course, who can resist french fries.
You really could go without any other small cooking appliance as the air fryer can be used for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can even make desserts in an air fryer. Crazy, right? It seems all 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.
