The Air Fryer Frenzy


Air fryers have recently gained popularity in many people’s homes and for good reason. This method of cooking is considered a healthier alternative to traditional fried food and contrary to the device’s name, it doesn’t actually fry food at all. Instead, it acts as a convection oven and circulates hot air around and through the food, leaving your meal crispy and browned on the outside and tender on the inside. Air frying is also a great way to avoid excess oils while cooking.

“When using an air fryer, most people can reduce their calorie intake by 70 to 80% on average,” said registered dietitian, Selena Diaz, RD. “The device also heats up very quickly, reducing cooking time, which is convenient for those who are looking to whip up a quick, healthy meal.”

While the size of the air fryer makes it a convenient option for use on a countertop or in smaller spaces such as an apartment or camper, if you have a large family you may have to cook in batches to make enough, as most devices can typically only hold one to three pounds of food.
