When you think of fried foods, you think grease, fat and lots of guilt. Watching anything cook to delicious perfection in a vat of oil is bound to make you question its nutritional value. But does it have to be this way? Not according to Phillips. They’ve created the AirFryer, a creation that uses rapid air technology to fry, bake, roast or grill your food with only a tablespoon or less of oil.
This coffee pot-sized gadget circulates hot air with speed and precision to cook your favorite foods with just a few drops of oil. We’re talking French fries, vegetables, baked goods — all with less fat. By using little to no oil, the AirFryer prevents your house from smelling like a fast food joint and makes clean up a cinch. It even features a removable, nonstick drawer and a food basket that are both dishwasher safe (score!). Similar to your friend the slow cooker, this baby has an integrated timer and digital temperature control that allow you to program pre-set cooking times of up to one hour and temperatures up to 390 degrees.
Sounding delicious? If you’re digging what this little guy is selling, the AirFryer retails for $330 on Amazon right now and has a user rating of four and a half stars. Not bad for a pint-sized piece of technology that makes our favorite fried, baked and roasted foods a little bit healthier and easier to make. Now we can totally justify them as a part of our daily diet, right?
