Make sure you have a good 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.

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.

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.

This air fryer is the one that I currently have and I really like it.  I can easily fit everything I need for our meal in it. Plus, it is pretty easy to clean afterwards.
