Hi there and welcome to The Best Air Fryer site – here’s a bit of info about us. I’m Ronnie from Manhattan (also known as downtown New York) and have been using an air fryer since they first appeared a few years ago.
I was first curious about air fryers as I was kind of over having to empty the oil out of a deep fryer, and was starting to look at how I could stop using so much oil. But I couldn’t give up the taste of deep frying, as that crunch just makes food somehow tastier.
So I’m the mom of a family of 3 – we are lucky enough to have one boy and two girls. I wish they were old enough to cook for themselves but at the moment they aren’t – but don’t worry, I’ll teach them as soon as they are tall enough to reach the top shelf in the kitchen.
I’ve found the air fryer so handy for cooking up side dishes when we are at home, and often make potato fries, chicken sticks and we all love sweet potato fries as well. Even with a large air fryer, I guess I’m not using that for the whole meal. I’m often also pan frying up some chicken or baking something in the oven at the same time as using the air fryer.
My husband’s family has a holiday home up in the hills on the outskirts of Providence, and when we can get a sitter, we sneak away for the odd weekend. That’s when I get to use my smaller air fryer, which I bought a couple of years ago.
I’ve been experimenting with air fryer recipes for some time now, and I have found some really good cookbooks. You know, the ones you go back to again and again. So that’s why I thought if I’m reviewing air fryers, then I’d better share the good books with you as well.
So thanks again for stopping by. I hope you find the perfect air fryer for you and your family, and please let me know how it goes!
All the best, … Ronnie x
