BuzzFeed editor Hannah Loewentheil finally gave in and bought an air fryer during quarantine, and she’s glad she did:
“I had been considering buying an air fryer for some time, but it wasn’t until I found myself cooking every night with my family due to COVID-19 that I finally decided it was a good idea. was a good time to buy one. Friends of mine were thrilled with their new Instant Vortex Plus 6-in-1 Air Fryer, so after reading similar reviews on Amazon I decided this looked like a winner. I thought I would use this unit primarily as an air fryer, but as a bonus, it can also roast, broil, bake, reheat and dehydrate food.
I’ve had this air fryer for about three weeks now, and I can honestly say it’s become my kitchen hero. It preheats quickly, it’s big enough to hold a good amount of food at a time, it’s easy to clean, and it makes food taste crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside without oil. I use my air fryer to make veggies almost every night and it makes them so good. If you cook for kids, picky eaters, or aren’t so keen on eating vegetables, the air fryer might be perfect for you. If you love chicken, the air fryer can change your life, and I don’t mean it’s drastic. The air fryer produces restaurant-quality chicken that tastes absurdly decadent, except there’s no oil involved in the cooking — just air. We also tried making sesame chicken in the air fryer using boneless, skinless chicken thighs. The sesame chicken tasted almost identical to my favorite Chinese takeout, and it had nothing to do with my cooking skills. Thanks to the air fryer, the chicken becomes so crispy. I couldn’t believe I made this at home!!”
Get it on Amazon for $99.99.
