Using an air fryer is cooking healthy without all the use of oils and saturated fats. It's a far-better alternative to deep frying. The benefits of cooking with an air fryer are too great to ignore. Reduce your fat intake due to a unique cooking method circulating hot air around the food giving it a crispy exterior and most interior, lower risk of chronic diseases, and it's time-efficient.

There's a nationwide recall of air fryers.
