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!

Ask your question
  • 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

  • I don’t really think I need one I don’t think it’s a necessary appliance to have

  • THANKS for posting this Kidsquad3…I do have an air fryer but it is still in the box and unused till my son finally moves all his belonging into his place. We have a large coffee machine on the bench at present but this is going with son sooo I will be able to unpack and start to use my air fryer. Great comments from moms …I’m even more excited about the prospects of using this than I was before. Wishing you good luck and happy purchase.

  • So glad you posted this question as I’m in the same boat as you. I’ve been thinking about it for a while but wasn’t sure if it was going to be worth having another appliance in the kitchen taking up space……..but after reading the comments I think I will be

  • I cook nearly everything in my air fryer. I find I don’t use most other appliances in my kitchen anymore
