I decided on this one due to a number of positive reviews, and I didn't read anything about the latch loosening or the pan popping open. This one sells for $72.99.
The added space does make a bit of difference when it comes to larger pieces of meat. Though a small cookbook (pamphlet) did accompany the air fryers, it's basic. I found more recipes and ideas on Pinterest. Quickly I became comfortable using my air fryer and doing my own thing. I love experimenting with food and creating new recipes.
One of the main reasons I love my air fryer is not only because it cuts down on cooking time but it has given my quirky teenage son the confidence to cook on his own. Logan has never been comfortable using the oven or stove. He'd do it, but there would be anxiety. With the air fryer, he can season ribs or pork chops, put them in the basket, set the timer and temperature and in less than 30 minutes have lunch. If I'm not home, I don't worry about anything homeowners-insurance- worthy to occur.
Logan's face of success when he plates his food warms this mamas soul.
Many teenagers don't know how to cook and when they leave the nest they tend to eat a lot of processed foods. I did the same thing when I was 17 and after I was married. I didn't teach myself to cook real food until after I was 30. I believe those processed foods contributed to my digestive and food allergies; I don't want Logan to go through that.
Plus, his future wife will thank me when he can whip up a lovely dinner under 45 minutes.
This small kitchen appliance has made a huge difference.
This review is just a woman and her thoughts.
There are many out there. Take your time and do your research. I'm asked all the time "What the heck is an air fryer?" I didn't know what it was either up until 5 months ago. We all lead busy lives, why not make it simpler and healthier? I hope I helped a little bit on your decision to purchase an air fryer.
Logan and I are going to post our recipes in the coming weeks, stay tuned for those. We have some good ones.
If you have questions, please feel free to ask.
