I love my air fryer. It’s become a bit of a private joke among my friends and I. But not without reason. I can’t stop talking about it. It’s an amazing contraption and you need to get one for your student kitchen.
Now, your first question might be: what is an air fryer? Well, look no further! Your answer is here! An air fryer is like a very small oven, so small in fact that you can fit it on your countertop! What does it do, you might ask next? Well, it cooks all your favourite fresh and frozen food to match the texture of your favourite deep fat fried foods without any of the fat or extra calories.
In essence, it’s humankind’s best invention. But you aren’t convinced yet? No matter, here’s the reason why you need to drop everything and buy an air fryer right now!
It’s a healthy way of cooking!
Cooking with oil is a thing of the past when you own an air fryer! That’s right! An air fryer doesn’t require any oil to work and I promise you that your food will still come out crispy and delicious!
But if you are an oil fiend, fear not! You are free to coat your food with a little bit of oil before popping it into the air fryer. And I mean a little bit! The air fryer does not need much to produce a crispy and delicious meal! You’ll be eating much healthier this way too, as your food will contain less saturated fat than your usual fried fast food!
It’s Super Quick!
Are you an impatient person? When you’re hungry, do you need to eat right there and then? Well, you’re in good company. My favourite thing about an air fryer is that you don’t need to wait for it to heat up! That’s right! You just turn the dial up to 200 degrees and it’ll heat up in an instance!
After a long day of online uni, waiting for your oven to heat up is a thing of the past with an air fryer. And we all know that a watched oven never boils…oh wait no, that’s a pot.
It Cooks Everything!
I repeat: it cooks everything. It literally does, I mean it. There is even a dedicated Tiktok account to cooking random things in the air fryer.
Of course you can cook all your favourites like frozen chips, mozzarella dippers and chicken nuggets but where’s the fun in that? What about trying to bake a cake? Or cook some pasta? You can do it all! It’s very versatile. Bet your average microwave can’t do that.
So, there you go! You have to get one right now!
