Every week it always seems like there is something else that is trending to help you lose weight. It will be around for a couple of weeks, and then people will forget about it.
For the past couple of months, I have been seeing a few people talk about the air fryer. I have heard mixed reviews. Some people say it is the best thing and others say its good for only foods like fries. Regardless of the reviews, I knew I needed to try it for myself.
What is it?
Let’s first make sure we have an understanding of what the air fryer is. An air fryer is a kitchen tool that uses hot air to cook different types of food. A mechanical fan circulates the hot air around the food, and it creates a crispy layer around the food.
I received the air fryer as a gift for Christmas last year. I promise it is the best gift I have received. The air fryer is one of the best and most convenient kitchen tools. Every tool, you have to learn how to use it. Once you learn how to use it, it’ll be your best helper in the kitchen. It allows creating your favorite foods with a crisp you are searching for without the oil.
I absolutely love hot wings. It’s my favorite meal ever, and it’s also my weakness. With the air fryer, I can get the chicken to crispy without the guilt of using oil. I cook it on 375 for 15 minutes and flip it and allow the other side to cook for 15 minutes. Then I turn it up to 400 degrees and cook on each side for 10 mins or until I get it to my desired crispiness. One of my concerns before purchasing the air fryer was that the chicken would stick to the air fryer. The easiest thing to fix that is to spray it with non-stick oil LIGHTLY. I have never had any chicken stick to the pan after spraying it.
The Airfryer is an easy cleanup. It comes apart easily. I used a little of Dawn dish detergent, and hot water and the grease from the chicken came right off.
So would I recommend the Air Fryer? Yes, it is a must-have. It should be in everybody’s kitchen, especially if you want to start a healthy lifestyle.
