The Magic of Air Frying

Say hello to your new kitchen hero: the air fryer! This awesome appliance works by blowing hot air directly onto food — it's a bit like a convection oven but it cooks much faster.

How Does Air Frying Work?

The hot air cooks the outside of foods first, creating a crispy coating, and leaves the inside moist and tender. It's just like deep-frying, but with air instead of oil. Amazing!

Benefits of Air Frying

Air frying is easy, fast, and healthy. With no need for oil, you can cut calories by up 80% and cook all sorts of foods: nuggets, veggies, chips, and even doughnuts!
