What is an air fryer?
An air fryer is basically a small countertop convection oven. It is capable of cooking foods quickly at high temps without copious oil. Air-fryers produce golden and crispy food with little to no oil very fast. These little powerhouse appliances take up little space but are very versatile in function. They are great for cooking crispy treats like these 5 vegan air-fryer recipes but also great for cooking vegetables and proteins and sealing in their moisture while having a crisp exterior. I think air-fryers are one of the kitchen essentials that I cannot live without. I dragged my feet for years on buying one, yet once I did it quickly became one of my favorite gadgets.
