Air fryers have become popular in the last couple of years, but it was during quarantine that I started seeing more of them on social. After a couple of months experimenting in the kitchen, maybe people wanted to take it up a notch. But this article is for anyone who's wondering: What exactly does an air fryer do? And is it a better way to cook food? Here's what you need to know about this coveted kitchen appliance. 

What is an air fryer?

Literally, it's an appliance used to fry food like meat and potatoes. It also works well with frozen foods. Instead of using a ton of oil like you normally would, an air fryer circulates hot air around your food to give it a crispy, crunchy exterior. 

Is it healthier?

Many believe that because you're not using as much oil as when you deep-fry chicken, for example, that it's a healthier alternative. But if you think about it, you're *still* eating fried food, which is generally higher in fat compared to if you bake, roast, or steam your meals. If you actually want to be healthier, the better move is to lessen your intake of fried food altogether. (I understand that's hard to do, I love fried chicken, too!)

Why do people like air fryers?

It's convenient to use and easy to clean. It's versatile, you can cook all kinds of food in it—and not just to fry something. And while it doesn't exactly make your food "healthier," it does cut the fat down compared to if you deep-fry something.
