Yes, it’s possible to fry food without tons of oil. Meet the incredibly popular Cosori Air Fryer —it’s $20 off right now at Amazon.
Air fryers use much less oil than traditional frying. The machine circulates super hot air around whatever food you’re cooking to create that crispy, crunchy outcome we all want — but it does so only using a few tablespoons of oil.
To put that into perspective, normal fryers use 50 times more oil than air fryers.
Air fryers cook up food with tons of flavor but much less fat content and with fewer harmful compounds than are found in most traditionally fried foods (specifically acrylamide, which studies show could be linked to cancer).
And if that’s not enough to convince you, the customer reviews on the Cosori Air Fryer might. The machine has more than 1,200 reviews and 4.6 stars.
“Preheat setting is awesome. Comes with cook book for easy recipes,” wrote a five-star Amazon reviewer. “Best wings and sweet potato fries I’ve ever made. Very easy to clean. Nonstick is great; you don’t need to add the recommended oil to food or the cooking basket... The fan is quiet. It cooks pretty fast. Preset times and temperatures by food type are helpful. Overall, I’d buy this exact air fryer again. Satisfied customer!”
Another delighted shopper added, “I love this air fryer and use it nearly every day. Just cooking for my husband and myself, so the 3.7 qt is the perfect size. Living in Florida, I prefer not to heat up my kitchen with my regular oven. That said, you can cook most meals in the air fryer in the same time in takes just to preheat your regular oven.”
