Frequently Asked Questions about Weight Watchers Air Fryer Cooking
If you love the taste of fried foods but at trying to cut back on fat and calories, and Air Fryer will be a great tool for you.
The truth is that anything you can cook in the air fryer, you can also cook in the oven. However, an air fryer is like a mini-convection oven. It circulates hot air to cook foods so you get crispiness on all sides.

I recommend purchasing an air fryer with the largest basket you can find for your price range. Foods need air to circulate so will be more cripsy when they have air flowing around them. Check out this post about air fryers for your information.
