TO FRY OR NOT TO FRY
Admittedly, deep-fried foods are tasty. There’s no denying it; on the longest days, the crisp crunch of lettuce (no disrespect meant, lettuce) just doesn’t stand up to the crunch of fried chicken. Still, deep-fried foods are bad in copious amounts, being high in fat content as well as being generally all-around unhealthy. Thankfully, our crunch-loving counterparts have invented the air fryer, which provides much of the same pleasure without laying on the pounds How is the air fryer better for cooking? For one, foods cooked in air fryers require only a small coating of oil to become crisp on the outside, and tender on the inside. Models and brands differ, but the way an air fryer generally works involves rapid circulation of hot air, which cooks your food evenly and without excess oil. French fries? Yes, please.
