Air Fryer Cooking
An air fryer is a small convection oven that circulates hot air quickly to provide even cooking with little additional fat required.
What I love about the air fryer is that I can use it for one item while I’m cooking other dinner items. It’s also great for summer cooking because you don’t have to heat up the stove.
Because of the circulation of heat, foods turn out crispy and delicious.

One downside to air fryer cooking is that food tends to cook better in the air fryer in smaller batches. Plan your meals accordingly or consider purchasing a larger air fryer such as the Cuisinart Air Fryer Toaster Oven.
