Our ongoing quest to find food that is reasonably healthy and tastes good (not a combination that normally goes together, I know) led Vee and I to buy one of the new AirFryers that we keep hearing about.
The Power Airfryers XL that we purchased comes in three sizes, 2.4Qt, 3.4qt & 5.3Qt. The Small one seemed too small to cook much of anything and since it’s just the two of us we chose the 3.4Qt, it’s big enough to cook plenty for two and doesn’t take up too much counter space. The big draw for us was the claim that the food would taste like deep fried food without the oil and all the extra calories that comes with the oil.
For our first meal, we kept it super simple & easy, wings and fries. We bought frozen wings and let them thaw before rubbing them with a McCormick dry rub. The basket was big enough that Vee started cooking both together and took the fries out early so they wouldn’t overcook.
So, what’s the verdict? The wings and fries were AMAZING! Cooked through and the taste was great. The wings could have been a bit crisper so we’ll try extending the cook time when we cook them next time (which I think will be very soon!)
We are looking forward to our next experiment. So, if you have a favorite airfryer recipe, suggestion, or question please share it in the comment section below.
