I held off.
I mean, I have slow cooker(s) – yes – plural – and a multi pot, food processor, blender, stand mixer, all the accoutrements of your modern 21st century western kitchen.
I certainly did not need an air fryer.
Until I did.
I blame my friend Ruth, who got one herself a week or so ago and is loving it!
Fries. Grill cheese sammiches. You name it, she’s been trying it.
SO. I bit the bullet and ordered one – the same model and size as Ruth has because, I mean she has already done all the research.
First things first, this thing is kinda big, but, if it works, I will deal.
My first test was frozen sweet potato fries.
OMG! They came out perfect!
Nicely cooked and crunchy.
We enjoyed ours with a sweet chili and mayonnaise dipping sauce.
I did, following manufacturer instructions, use a wee, tiny bit of oil; and placed the fryer on a thick wooden cutting board while cooking – it does get hot and can damage coutertops if you don’t take precautions.
I don’t care. Just for the fries? I am sold!
