Using less energy, air fryer ovens are a great option for home cooks who feel it's a waste to prepare a meal individually in a full-size oven.
They heat up quickly, are easy to use, and cut oven cooking time in half.
Teens and students love their snack possibilities (cheese toast, pakora, hot peppers, chicken nuggets, etc.) and we love the safety aspect - no frying, splattered fat or forgotten oven trays.
Will it cook delicious food? Is it healthier?
Because a convection oven heats the food faster and harder than a conventional oven, food cooked in a convection oven is much crispier than anything baked in any oven. You'll end up with crispier, more evenly cooked food. We found the food cooked in the air fryer to be very delicious.
However, we make sure you use a small amount of fat or oil when cooking, just for flavor. For example, air fryer crisps are served well with a quick oil spray before cooking. This will avoid the dreaded blandness of nonfat foods while still maintaining the desired low-fat effect.
Standard baked French fries cooked in an air fryer oven have just 5 grams of fat and are crispy and delicious - compared to 18 grams for the same size fried item. This is a great way to reduce saturated fat in your daily diet.
Are they easy to use?
Plug them in, put food in trays, set time and temperature - and walk away. Simple.
Cleanup is easy and all our featured models have removable trays and baskets that are dishwasher safe.
