"Air fryer! I have a Crock Pot and Instant Pot but I only use them maybe once or twice a month. The air fryer gets used at least three or four times a week by myself or my boyfriend. It’s awesome for frozen or fresh food and is a life saver in the summer when it’s a million degrees in the kitchen. I got this one and the size works well for two people. [Ed. note: the one pictured and linked here!]"
"I use mine several times a week. I live for French fries and this way I can have a smaller portion with way less calories. Plus, it’s the only way I’ve found too cook them at home to taste as good as a restaurant. And it’s great for veggie burgers, tots, chicken strips, and so much more!!"
"I live in Oklahoma which can get hot in the summer. I frequently make sweet potatoes for my dogs, or a baked potato for myself, because I hate heating up the oven for a couple of potatoes. It is also perfect for making pork chops or chicken strips. Everything cooks so quick. The most useful product of the year."
