Air Fryers—A Healthier Way to Fry Food

By Alisha Johnson, Ensley Branch Library

Ever wondered how some of your favorite fried and greasy foods can turn out so wonderful using little to no oil? So did I! But I soon found out that it was possible and was amazed at how well an air fryer cooked all of my favorite foods in record time. This small machine, some starting as low as $30, acts like an oven and cooks a variety of foods, evenly, while using very little counter space. This product is easy to use and convenient, especially if you have children in the home. There are many recipes out there for unique diets and for those who like to experiment with new and exciting foods.
