There’s a lot of buzz about Air Fryers right now, but what are they, really? An Air Fryer is essentially a convection oven that sits on your kitchen counter. It seems pretty great, right? Because it uses convection, the hot air circulates around the food and makes it crispy without needing as much oil as a deep fryer does. With an Air Fryer, you can make delicious food without piling on the calories! Need some inspiration? Check out these healthy and delicious Air Fryer recipes:
