The reason I purchased my air fryer was for the health reasons. It was strongly suggested to me by my Doctor that I dramatically change the way I was cooking which was helping me eat food in bad ways which resulted in some health issues. My parents made the best food .. fried in cast iron skillets and dutch ovens with lots of bacon grease, lard, oil and butter. That's how I learned to enjoy foods .. and now I am paying for those delicious ways. So along comes the air fryer .. and it has helped me make a huge improvement in my health. Change is hard at times and it wasn't easy to change the way I cook. I am a great cook, I enjoy cooking and baking and my food has been enjoyed by many over the years. I should have been a chef ! But I was not willing to steam or boil my food. For me the air fryer has been a God send. You get out of something what you put into it. They aren't for everyone - especially in our age groups because we are quite set in our ways - but I am really glad I tried it and there hasn't been anything I've not been able to cook in mine .. and I am much healthier now just from that little change.
