Not only will you reduce your fuel consumption and spend less time cooking with your air fryer oven, but you'll also have easier cleanup. Many of its parts are designed to be wiped with a damp cloth or washed in a sink with soap. Some air fryer ovens even have dishwasher-safe parts. Overall, they are easier to clean and maintain than larger cooking gadgets.
More space, less odor
Air fryer ovens also take up less space in the kitchen, which is especially beneficial if you have a smaller space. Another bonus: An air fryer oven won't leave your house with a lingering smell of fried food within hours of cooking.
Great for picky eaters
Are you and your loved ones picky eaters of vegetables? Air frying is a great way to crisp up vegetables and make them tastier. Many people prefer the texture of vegetables such as cauliflower, broccoli or Brussels sprouts when they are air fried. There are also countless online recipes that offer the option of cooking vegetable breadcrumbs in the air fryer (like the buffalo cauliflower below). Some even incorporate lighter options like rice or chickpea crumbs. It's also especially helpful if you're on a plant-based diet or trying to incorporate more plant-based meals into your weekly rotation.
Overall, air fryer ovens offer a quick and healthy way to prepare a variety of foods. While such equipment can be expensive, the long-term culinary and health benefits are enormous -- and for some, priceless. However, a balanced diet with plenty of fresh food and adequate physical activity is still essential.
