What are the benefits of an air fryer?
The primary benefit of cooking with an air fryer is your health, since air fryers give you crispy ‘fried’ food using no oil, which means less fat.

Air fryers are also more energy efficient when it comes to cooking for just yourself or when you’re making smaller dishes, and they’re very easy to clean, too.

What we really love about air fryers is that they’re also a multi-purpose appliance - not only can you fry food, you can also bake in them, and they’re also a quick and easy way to reheat leftovers like pizza. The result will seem more fresh than it would be in a microwave, which often leaves reheated food unevenly cooked, over cooked or soggy.
What are the best air fryer brands?
Ninja air fryers are considered top of the line, and are pretty much the highest-rated everywhere, so if you can find one on sale, grab it while you can for less!
