Benefits of Air Fryer Cooking
You’re probably heard this before, but Air Frying is a healthier way to prepare food at home.
You’ll cook with less oil and still get food that is tasty and delicious.
- Lower Fat – Air Fryers use much less fat and oil to get a crispy coating on food
- Uses Hot Air – Air Fryers use hot air that is circulated around the food by a high-powered fan to crisp up the food quickly
- Lower Calories – Less fat and oils equals less overall calories in the food you eat
- Easier Cleanup – No standing over a hot stove with grease splattering out of the pan, wipe to clean, many Air Fryer baskets are dishwasher-safe
Things to Make in an Air Fryer
You can make many different things in your Air Fryer.
Besides foods that you’d typically fry, you can use it to make hamburgers and hot dogs, grilled cheese sandwiches, or even beef and bean chimichangas.
You can make many different types of vegetables as well.
We love to make zucchini and yellow squash in our Air Fryer.
We also frequently use it to cook corn on the cob in the summertime.
It’s perfect for baked potatoes.
Either typical russet potatoes or sweet potatoes work equally as well.
And Don’t Forget About the Desserts
Did you know that you can make many different types of desserts in the Air Fryer too?
The Air Fryer is perfect for desserts because it is easy to limit the number of sweets you are eating since you can only make small-batch desserts.
We love making brownies, chocolate chip cookies, fruit pies and more.
