Cooking for a family can be tough. Especially this year, as many households are cooking up to 200% more meals at home than last year. If you're looking to create family meals, that are more healthy than takeout and guilt-free, consider a stove with air fry mode.
Last year I visited a friend’s house to watch a football game. As I entered the kitchen I was greeted with the familiar aroma of football fan favorites including chicken wings, french fries, nachos, doughnuts, and a whole bunch of other fun snacks. When I asked where they got their takeout, they led me over to a giant countertop appliance, called an air fryer.
We love it! I listened to my friend pitch the features of his air fry oven. Plus, it’s great for the kids' foods, so easy.
Air fry is essentially a supercharged convection mode that circulates hot air throughout the oven to deliver all the flavor and a crispy texture. It's a great way to enjoy healthier and delicious meals without adding oil, grease, and fats typically used to fry foods. You can expect perfect browning on the outer edges and a satisfying crunch every time.
An air fryer is a true convection oven with a heating element designed to circulate hot air throughout the oven. This supercharged convection system delivers faster, more even than multi-rack baking results.
Today you can get air fry in one of two ways. You can buy a countertop air fry appliance or you could buy a stove with a built-in air fry mode.
Countertop air fryers are cheaper but they're large and take up a good amount of counter space. Countertop air fryers are also difficult to store.
Buying a stove with a built-in air fry mode is definitely the better option as it doesn't take up any extra counter space. You can buy a gas range or an electric range with air fry. These ranges also come with many of today's most desirable features such as steam cleaning, quick preheat, and perhaps a smudge-proof stainless steel finish.
