You probably have a crock pot, toaster, and blender in your kitchen—but what about an air fryer? These multi-use kitchen appliances are an affordable way to make healthier, easier, and quicker meals, and like InstantPot, they may be the next big thing in every home cook’s kitchen. Here are X reasons you should add an air fryer to your home:

1) It’s a versatile appliance.

Like pressure cookers, air fryers are a multi-purpose cooker. You can fry, grill, bake, or roast your favorite meals, from French fries to muffins and everything in between.

2) It’s a healthier way to cook indulgent foods.

Most people would eat French fries, spring rolls, and donuts everyday if they could. While these foods are still best as a treat, an air fryer eliminates the need for oil by using rapid air technology to fry foods. This process eliminates about 80% of the fat these foods would have if they were fried with oil. That means you can treat yourself a little more often.

3) You’ll get food on the table faster.

Any busy home cook should have an air fryer in the home. These handy gadgets cut cook time by at least half (sometimes more), so something that takes 25 minutes to bake in a standard oven will be ready in just 7 to 10 minutes in the air fryer.

4) It’s the new fix it and forget it gadget.

Like pressure cookers, air fryers look after themselves. Simply set the temperature and time, and the air fryer will perfectly cook food without any turning or fiddling. The fryer will also turn off by itself after the time is over.
