By now, if you don’t already own an air fryer, you’re probably chomping at the bit to get your hands on one. These sweet, (mostly) oil-free fryers are the easiest way to still enjoy all your favourite fried foods, without feeling guilty.
Air fryers are small ovens with a highly concentrated heat source and powerful fan that moves the hot air around to leave food crispy on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside. They require little to no oil to fry your food, minimising the calories and fat content.
Most air fryers reach up to 200 degrees, have a built-in timer, require minimal effort from the chef and are super simple to clean. Meaning you’ll be cooking up culinary masterpieces in no time.
