So I got an air fryer…

And delicious things have been happening.

So the joys of being home for 310 days (friggin’ pandemic, eh?) is you have a lot of time to think about how to improve things in your house and I kept seeing articles/ heard friends talking about air fryers. What’s an air fryer? An air fryer is essentially a concentrated convection oven. Cooking at a high heat with air circulation.

My parents got one and I think that was the final straw for me to actually start researching brands/features and figuring out which one I wanted. There are A LOT of makes/models. They take up a significant amount of counter space so I had to make sure I found one that fit under the counter for storage when not in use.

I ended up getting the Philips Analog Airfryer with Twin Turbostar Technology. I actually found a refurbished version of this, as I couldn’t justify spending $250 on a new appliance that really, is a want vs. a need.

I’ve had it for 3 weeks now and I am loving it. Have gotten recipes from friends, my fave food blogs and done a lot of experimenting on my own.

Some things I’ve tried:

Roasted garlic potatoes
Panko-crusted mozzarella sticks
Pepperoni and garlic pizza rolls
Soy sauce and brown sugar glazed rainbow carrots

We’ve also tried a few frozen foods, like chicken nuggets, fries and pierogies. All of them came out crispy and delicious with nothing more than a quick spray of vegetable oil over top.

Do we need an air fryer? No.

Would I recommend getting one? Yes.

Looking forward to the many recipes and experimentation to come!
