Who says you need to cook your favorite fried foods in oil to get that crispy texture you love? Air fryers use much less oil than traditional frying. They circulate super hot air around whatever food you’re cooking to create that crispy, crunchy outcome we all adore — only using a few tablespoons of oil. Have you decided to get smart and join the air-fryer revolution? Here's your chance: The Philips Twin TurboStar Technology XL Airfryer — is $75 off right now at Amazon.
This Philips air fryer offers a roomy 3-quart capacity to help you whip up fries, wings and more with the touch of a button. It fits an entire bag of fries inside! It also uses fat removal technology to capture and remove excess fat.
Remember what we said up top about oil use? To be specific: Normal fryers use 50 times more oil than air fryers. Air fryers cook up all your favorite crunchies with tons of flavor but much less fat content and fewer harmful compounds than are found in most traditionally fried foods (specifically arcylamide, which studies show could be linked to cancer).
And if that’s not enough to convince you, the customer reviews on this Philips fryer might.
“The air fryer has a nonstick surface which is very easy to clean,” says one five-star reviewer. “The basket size is large enough to cook what is needed for a family of six although a second or third batch may be necessary for some things. As long as the food is cooked properly, the food comes out crispy on the outside just like an oil fryer. It has become a favorite kitchen appliance to cook with.”
Shoppers are also raving about how easy it is to clean this air fryer — it's dishwasher-safe, a rarity when it comes to these appliances.
One thrilled reviewer shared that their favorite part of the Philips XL is how good it is at perfectly cooking up your favorites: “The first thing we tried was the chicken fajita recipe, and it came out perfectly — moist and done but not overdone, and that's always a trick with chicken breasts — and almost no oil at all. The trick to getting veggies just right is to cut them just a bit thicker than you might normally so that they don't overcook.”
