After reading this Wirecutter article about products that are overpriced, crappy, or just plain don't work, I'm never buying an air fryer.
As they're marketed, air fryers are miracle devices, supplying crispy fries and fish sticks without the oil and mess of a standard deep fryer. But like all things that seem too good to be true, this one mostly is, too. Your taste buds will always know that you skimped on the crispy-making, calorie-laden oil of real frying, and you can achieve the exact same results using a convection oven. Mic drop.
