Have you heard the hype about air fryers? These appliances are certainly the "hot" thing to have in the kitchen right now.
So, what are they? And why do you need one?
To start, it's important to understand that these aren't like the big old fast food fryers that you are imagining. They're more similar to a mini convection oven, using hot air to circulate around your food and crisping it quickly.
There are A LOT of benefits to using an air fryer compared to other cooking methods, but we're listing our top reasons below...
1. You Can Cook Healthier
As you can imagine, cooking something without using fatty oil makes the food you are consuming healthier. Regularly fried foods like wings and fries can be just as crispy and delicious in an air fryer, without the oil!
2. Do More Than Just Fry
Yes, it's called an air FRYER, but you're also able to roast, grill, bake and broil food in it as well.
Many air fryers can have tools and accessories added to them for different cooking methods. We've seen air fryers with rotisserie racks, grill pans, cake and pizza pans, a steamer and kabob skewers. Wow!
4. Save Space
Most air fryers are no bigger than a regular coffee maker. For all that they can do, you'll save a ton of space on your counter, or they'll provide more room for you in smaller spaces like RV's or dorm rooms.
5. Easy To Use!
You don't need to be a master chef to work an air fryer. For most air fryers and recipes, you just need to select the temperature and the cooking time. Then, add the food and shake it a few times while cooking. Easy!
Do I Need An Air Fryer?
Many people can benefit from using an air fryer, including busy parents, college students, seniors, people who live the 'tiny house' lifestyle, and people who hate cooking!
