What is an air fryer?

In air fryer is similar to a convection oven in that is circulates hot air around the food. A air fryer circulates the air around the food at a high resulting in a crisp outer layer similar to deep-fried food.

There are so many reasons to bust out that air fryer! You get the same deep-fried texture without having to submerge your food in oil. There’s definitely a feel-good health benefit from not using as much oil as you would with traditional frying.

Air frying is also quicker and cleaner! I don’t know about you but I very much hate oil splatter everywhere that I just have to clean up later, plus where do you put all that oil?! Air frying trays and baskets are such an easy cleanup compared to traditional frying.
