Air fryers have revolutionized the way we eat by being able to offer us the best compromise: tasty food cooked in a healthy way. Few can resist when put in front of some gold, crispy fries, even though we know they’re bad for us, with all the oil and everything. Air fryers allow us to cook all these ‘guilty pleasures’ we crave for so much, but instead of deep frying them in huge amounts of oil, they cook them using hot air circulation. The amount of oil needed is almost zero.
Another great thing about air fryers is that they are affordable and you can find a lot of air fryers under $100. Here are the best ones:
