Reader Kate/KD (here’s her Meet a Reader interview) wrote in with a request about air fryers.
Here’s what she wanted to know:
I’d love to see an ask the reader post on air fryers. What do people use them for, and like/dislike about them? Which fryer do they have? There are so many choices that it paralyzes me to think about buying one.
This is indeed a very good question for an Ask the Readers feature because…I have never owned or used an air fryer.
When air-fryers became popular, I was still feeding 5-6 people every night, so I was put off by the small amount of food you can usually cook in one.
Also: my kitchen was pretty small! As it was, I was storing my griddle in the linen closet and my grain grinder in the coat closet. So, I did not think my kitchen had room for an air fryer since they’re pretty bulky.
However, I can see that in the near future, I will be making plenty of meals that are just for 1-2 people, and that makes an air-fryer seem a little more appealing.
I will be reading and learning from the comments today. 🙂
What air fryer do you use? And what do you cook in it?
Give us pros and cons, please!
