Healthy Air-Fryer Recipes, Amazon Finds & More

Consider this your air-fryer bible: everything you need to know, plus the ultimate healthy recipe roundup!

The Air Fryer at a Glance

It cooks your food with hot air instead of hot oil. The food goes into a basket, like a typical fryer. But it's blasted with high-speed hot air instead of submerged in hot oil, which cooks the food to a crispy “fried” finish. Genius!

It does a LOT more than just fry. This baby can also bake, grill, and roast... Yes, really! The accessories pack recommended below opens up a world of possibilities.

This thing works fast! Since it’s smaller than a traditional oven, it heats up and cooks food in a tiny fraction of the time. Buh-bye, baking…

Cleanup is easy. Just toss the fryer pan and the basket right into the dishwasher when you're done.

The automated OFF feature is our favorite. When the timer runs out, the heat turns off. No burning food due to absentminded cooking! (Not that we've done that…)
