Why You Should Upgrade to an Air Fryer Oven

If you’ve been keeping up with kitchen trends, you’ve probably heard about air fryers. Wondering why they’ve suddenly become all the rage? We’ll tell you, and we’ll show you why you should upgrade to an even newer kitchen appliance: the air fryer oven.

What Is an Air Fryer?

Air fryers are basically what the name implies: they fry food by blasting super-hot air to give a crispy texture. The awesome thing about air frying is that you don’t need very much oil, which is very different from traditional frying. Air frying is a healthy way to get crispy tempura, chicken wings, battered mushrooms—you name it.

Types of Air Fryers

Up until very recently, the only kind of air fryer you could buy was a countertop one. While these air fryers are quite large, they don’t feed very many people—maybe one or two at most. Now there are ovens with built-in air fryers that can handle much larger batches and feed bigger groups of people.

Bonus Features

If you want to upgrade your kitchen range or oven, you should consider an air fryer oven. One reason is that ovens with air fryers also come with convection settings, which allows you to cook food more evenly. Some of these ovens also include additional features like steam cleaning, bread proofing, and dehydrating functions.

All the Options

If you’re trying to stay healthy, you may avoid eating fried foods because of the amount of fat in them. With an air fryer, you can make healthy versions of all your favorite fried foods and maybe even learn some new ones. An air fryer oven is a perfect upgrade for any home chef or adventurous eater.
