So, I am a person who does not like to buy kitchen gadgets. First of all, I don’t think there are very many that I would use often enough to warrant the cost. Secondly, I don’t like clutter on my counters and my cabinets already seem to be full. But, I had been reading and hearing great things about air fryers and I really wanted to give it a go. One of my favorite bloggers and authors, Gina Homolka of Skinnytaste.com fame, bought one and gave it a trial. She loved it and that was enough to convince me to try one too. I even ordered the same one she had…the NuWave Brio Digital Air Fryer, Model #36001. I am SOLD! It is a great way to make healthy food, but it is also a great way to make less than healthy snacks that my son, Mr. Skinny, loves to eat. My healthy chicken parm turns out amazingly good…crunchy on the outside and juicy on the inside. His onion rings, french fries, mini corn dogs, mozzarella sticks (hate him 😉 ) turn out great too! Win win! My only regret is that I didn’t get a bigger one. I often have to do things in shifts and keep them warm in the oven as I go. But then again, in the spirit of the empty nesters we are, soon it will just be the two of us again and this unit should be plenty big for that. I highly recommend giving this a shot if you want healthier “fried” foods fast! Next time I use it I will take some photos to share!
By the way, I am in no way connected to NuWave and in no way an expert. Just telling you of my experience and what I like.
