Yes, it’s possible to fry food without tons of oil. Meet the incredibly popular COSORI Smart WiFi Air Fryer —it’s $36 off retail right now at Amazon. Just in time for the holidays!
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. That’s right! 50 times more!!
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 arcylamide, which studies show could be linked to cancer).
Also, this air fryer is smart and syncs to your smartphone over WiFi, so you can use it whenever you’d like — even if you’re away from your kitchen. It’s also compatible with Alexa for voice controls and quick recipe search!
And if that’s not enough to convince you, the customer reviews on the COSORI Smart WiFi Air Fryer might. The machine has a 4.7-star customer rating on Amazon.
“This air fryer is amazing and I bet this would be my best purchase on amazon in 2019! I've watched air fryer for a long time and hadn't decided until noticed this one,” wrote a delighted five-star reviewer. “Most air fryers can only work manually to set up time and temperature, which is not suitable for me. I'm always trying to make my kitchen smarter and this wireless-connected air fryer would be the best choice for me! I can prepare meat or veggies in ahead and just put it in the air fryer. I only need to open the air fryer on my way home. Everything is super easy and the receipt book really helps to prepare.”
“I didn't think I was going to be a big fan of air fryer until this product changed my opinion! I thought air fryers are just for fried chicken, but actually, this item can be used to cook all kinds of food,” another satisfied shopper wrote. “No matter if it's steak, fish, wings, or even veggies. Just put it in and let it be - it will become ready in minutes. The cooked food tastes pretty similar to actual grilled food, but the clean up is much easier than a grill, and also air frying is much healthier than grilling. Attached photo is air fried sea bass! I use this item all the time now!”
