Air fryer basics

From how an air fryer works to what you can cook in it, we break it all down

HOUSTON – Air fryers are all the rage lately, but if you still don't understand how they work, Registered Dietitian, Mary Ellen Phipps with Milk and Honey Nutrition breaks it all down for us.

"The key thing with an air fryer is that nothing is actually being fried, it's kind of a little misconception there. It's like a teeny tiny convection oven and hot air just swirls around and around... it's quicker and think about getting the crispiness of the toaster oven without the sogginess of the microwave," said Phipps.
