Craving Crispy? Dig into These Air Fryer Recipes

July 2023

If you don’t have an air fryer, you most certainly have a friend who swears by theirs. All the buzz around this latest must-have kitchen gadget begs the questions, "What is it?" and "Why do I need it?"

An air fryer is a countertop device that uses a heating mechanism and a fan to cook food that would typically be deep-fried or baked. Hot air rapidly circulates within the unit, surrounding a basket of food and creating the crispiness we all crave. The main draw of air fryers is their ability to quickly “fry” items like chicken nuggets and fries with little or no oil. On top of the health benefits, air fryers cook quickly, require minimal cleanup and eliminate splattering oil.
