You will love cooking with an air fryer!

Have you tried using an air fryer yet?  I was hesitate to try it as I thought surely it can’t be as good as a traditional fryer but I think it might be even better!  Now I love cooking in the air fryer.

This air fryer is the one that I currently have and I really like it.  It works great and clean up is easy too.

We recently made this Air Fryer Salmon Recipe and Air Fryer Chicken wings and both recipes turned out amazing!

Do air fryers make food crispy?

Essentially, the air fryer moves air quickly over food similar to broiling it in an oven that it gives the food a similar tastes to food that has been fried in oil. It is crispy and delicious without all of the oil!

The air fryer doesn’t require a large amount of oil like a traditional fryer requires so foods cooked in the air fryer generally have less calories and less fat than fried foods.
