I am seeing more and more posts, ads and recipes that use an air fryer and I’m now feeling like I should be on board this air train of healthy goodness. Am I missing out? Do I need another kitchen appliance that takes up space? Help a mumma out and let me know your thoughts!

  • Love my cheap $69 Kmart air fryer. I use it everyday. I use the oven only for cakes. Air fryer, Thermomix, microwave covered everything else. Really impressed, quicker than an oven and turns itself off. Love it.

  • We love it, my husband didn’t think it was a great idea but now uses it all the time. The kids find it so easy too and i prefer them using that than the oven now.
    I also roasted chickpeas and nuts in it the other day to go on top of a salad and they were great!

  • Its really good for me very healthy

  • Its definitely a very good investment. Its not only healthy but also saves time. You can put in a marinated chicken for dinner or lunch and go for a shower and when u will come it will be all cooked plus its good if you are trying to lose weight and controlling oil intake.

  • LOVE IT! haha use it multiple times a week! I have just purchased myself a new and bigger one

  • I love my air fryers (yes I have 2) they are so quick and easy, and of course seeing the amount of fat that comes out while cooking means it is better for your health also. Our personal favourite things to do are cheeserolls, savouries, and of course chicken nuggets.

  • Love mine, we never use a deep fryer now. Always wanted one but Hubby couldn’t see the benefits, then we got given one as a present and I swear he uses it more than me

  • I love my air fryer! Although we only use it for certain things it is great for frozen chips, roast potatos, chicken tenders etc. So much better than cooking them in the oven.

  • I am thinking the exact same thing. They are popping up everywhere!!! Unsure if I need another appliance in my kitchen- however definately considering it.

  • I’m following, because I’m interested in getting one too. Thanks for asking this question :)

  • LOVE IT! when I’m cooking small amounts it’s great. makes everything crispy and I find it’s quicker than it would be to cook than in the oven. I don’t use oil in my cooking so works well for me.
    Saves me heating up the oven

  • Love it. We got rid of our deep fryer to get one. Would never be without one now.

  • We love ours and apparently it’s more energy efficient than running the oven and healthier than running the fryer ????

  • I don’t have one but am the same way of thinking!!

  • I don’t have one myself, I’m like you, do I really need yet another appliance in my kitchen?! But a friend has one, uses it often, loves it and raves about it
