Top Reasons Why You Need an Air Fryer Today!

At Christmas, I was hell bent on getting an Instant Pot. Everyone I knew had them and somehow I had convinced myself that an Instant Pot would make my life easier. Of course, like I do, I Googled the heck out of it and read some horror stories and then scared myself out of wanting one. Not to mention, it seemed like all the recipes were super involved. Not for me. Instead, I decided to get an Air Fryer. Let me tell you, that was the best decision ever! I use it multiple times a week, if not every single day!

Top Reasons YOU Need an Air Fryer

I know what you’re thinking…the last thing you need is another kitchen applianceneed air fryer taking up space. Normally I would agree with you. However, this appliance will be your favorite and most used appliance in your kitchen. Not even joking!

Reason #1 – You can make your favorite deep fried foods, but without all the hassle of the bucket of oil, the risk of getting splattered by the oil, and without the damaging affects eating heavily fried foods does to our bodies. With the air fryer, you use very little oil. The air is what fries the food. Neat, huh?!?

Reason #2 – Foods take minutes to make. My favorite thing to make in the air fryer at the moment, is fried radishes. I know. It sounds weird, but it’s so good. I spritz a little oil on the cut radishes, use my favorite seasonings and they go in the air fryer for about 15 minutes. 15 minutes is about the longest anything has ever taken in this thing!

Radishes not your thing? Well then try this air fried Spicy Brussel Sprouts recipe. It’s a favorite of ours!

Reason #3 – Looking for something a little larger for your family? The air fryer has you covered with the air fryer oven. Eventually I will be upgrading to this. I was at the gym one day and as I was on the elliptical, I watched an infomercial for the oven and you can cook a whole chicken in there for about 30 minutes. Amazing!

Are you convinced yet?

Currently, besides veggies, our favorite things to make in the air fryer are burgers, polish sausages, and popcorn shrimp for my son. Mine came with a little baking dish that I can make a cheesecake in there. I haven’t tried it yet, but it’s on my list!! A Keto cheesecake would be a great idea! You literally can make whatever you would like in here. It’s also nice not heating up the kitchen with the oven for things like my sons popcorn shrimp, their chicken fingers, etc!

  2. I like that this can be done so quickly. Dinner time can get really hectic during the week so we need fast options for dinner. My husband is the cook in our family and I know he would love to have this in our kitchen!

    • Oh totally don’t be intimidated! It is so easy to use! Mine came with a book to tell you the times for things, but I’ve misplaced the book so now I just do a quick Google search if I am looking to see about how long/what temp something should go in the Air Fryer for!
