Mindy here, wondering if you all have seen these new air fryers that are on the market. They claim you can fry with little or no oil, yet get the same results as regular frying. I was intrigued, so I asked for one for my birthday.
And, since it was the only thing I asked for, I received.
I love it!
Okay, so I've only used it for a few frozen foods so far, but I am pleased with the results. Best of all, cleanup is a breeze.
We love frozen boneless wings and though we usually cook them in the oven, they just aren't as crisp their fried counterparts. So, we put them into the air fryer and voila!
Crispy on the outside, moist and juicy on the inside.
Well, that inspired me to keep playing, so I threw in some frozen sweet potato fries and let them cook for approximately 14 minutes.
All of the deliciousness, none of the added fat. Hubby especially likes those brown ends. Crispy, but with no burned taste.
According to the manufacturer, you can even bake, sauté, grill and roast in it. Of course, I haven't tried any of those things yet. Still, the option is there. You can even make homemade French fries and fried chicken. Oh, and cleanup is a breeze. Simply rinse or wipe out the basket and holder and you're done.
For now, I will enjoy my favorite frozen fried foods without guilt. Something that is especially convenient on those days when we are busy prepping the house to go on the market. The clock is ticking and there's still so much to do.
Now it's your turn. Have you ever tried an air fryer? Would you try one?
