Why Air Fry?

Air frying is the hottest trend since the Instant Pot!

Air fryers work like mini convection ovens in the sense that they circulate hot air around the food and enhance its crispiness.

Many people confuse air fryers with deep fryers, but these appliances are really not at all alike. There is no real “frying” with an air fryer; the air fryer is more like an oven than a fryer.

Air frying is a healthy way to prepare many vegan foods like vegetables and tofu. Everyone loves a good crisp texture, and that’s what the air fryer is all about.
