Air fryers, or countertop fryers, are appliances that can help you cut down on traditional stove and oven use. They're an excellent tool for crisping up chicken wings, air frying French fries, or reheating pizza. Many air fryers are more like toaster ovens or countertop convection ovens instead of large deep fryers. They use little or no oil to cook your food, so they're a healthy alternative to deep frying with a large amount of cooking oil. Air fryers use circulating hot air to get your food crispy instead. Some models even offer an air fryer with rotisserie.
Types of Air Fryers: There are two basic types of air fryers, rectangular or rounded ones. The box-shaped air fryers are enhanced countertop convection ovens or toaster ovens with an extra fan and a wire air fryer tray to air fry food. Other air fryers are cylinder-shaped countertop appliances with a deep bowl for oil and a wire basket that fits inside the bowl.
Within those two types, you'll find a variety of sizes, colors, and functions in air fryers. Small air fryers tend to have fewer features, but they're easier on the wallet than bigger ones. Choose from stainless steel air fryers to match a silvery kitchen, or add color with red air fryers, white air fryers, or even purple or blue ones. As far as functions go, there's an array of settings and features, including built-in timers, non-stick interiors, and various cooking settings.
