Do you have an air fryer?

I am sure you have seen a ton of photos on Pinterest and Instagram with food in the air fryer. The question most of us have is “Do I need one?”

First I was never a big fryer. You won’t find me deep frying any food on a regular basis, so buying an air fryer really didn’t feel like something I needed in my kitchen.

Then I made a batch of my baked chicken wings one day in the oven and realized that I would use an air fryer if I had one. Again because I never was a deep fryer an air fryer sounded good to me. I could make fried food without all the oil and that sounded good to me.

One of the first things I made in my air fryer was a batch of chicken wings and I have to say- YUM! They took less time then the oven, used way less oil and they were crispier then the oven.

I have a Philips XXL Air Fryer and would highly recommend, if you get an air fryer to get one with a big basket. Some of the ones on the market have a small basket and that means making a lot of batches.


If you have an air fryer, what is your favourite thing to fry?
