I recently purchased an air fryer and I am completely in love! We used to have a deep fryer (a necessity due to my family’s intense obsession with buffalo wings) but I got tired of cleaning it, having it smell up my kitchen and overall, just the unhealthiness of deep frying! An air fryer was an obvious compromise — my family could still have “friend” foods and life was easier for me. Warning: there will be more air fryer recipes in my blog’s future so if that interests you, stay tuned or subscribe so you don’t miss any recipes.
First, I did research on which air fryer to purchase. There are quite a few choices and it was a tough decision. Phillips is consistently the top rated but I didn’t want that price tag. (After all, I broke down and purchased in Instapot at the same time. More recipes on that coming soon too. Just wait until I share my wing recipe!!!) I knew what I needed in an air fryer:
- large capacity bucket (cooking for at least four people at a time)
- 60 minute timer (some are only 30 minutes and you never know what you might need it for)
- non-stick coating (read some reviews where the metal ones were rusting in certain areas….yuck!)
- dish-washer safe (although with the non-stick coating, hand washing is a breeze)
Of course, being offered on Amazon Prime helps since I’m impatient!
I finally decided on the Secura Air Fryer. I was a little worried because I couldn’t find a lot of information on it compared to many other air fryers but it met all of my needs. And I LOVE it. It even came with some accessories like a rack and skewers.
After using my air fryer to heat up some frozen foods, I decided to branch out and try something new. I love roasted veggies and just happened to have a head of cauliflower in my fridge.
Note: if you have are following the THM diet, I believe this would be an “S” because you toss the cauliflower in the oil. I guess it really depends on how much of it you eat. I might have eaten almost the entire head while reading….
