If you're trying to eat healthier and cut back on fried foods, an air fryer is about to be your new best friend. These magical devices prepare the fatty, fried foods you love—like French fries and chicken nuggets—into a healthier, crunchy concoction that tastes just as great with little to no oil. How does it work, exactly? It insulates the food inside with hot air, so it cooks up a lot faster than it would in an oven with just a fraction of oil. But they're not only designed for "frying." Air fryers can also be used to make everything from scones to crab cakes to meatballs and mini pizzas. And if you're craving something sweet, it can craft the likes of cinnamon rolls and banana nut bread. Convinced you need one? Here are the best air fryers, according to Amazon reviewers.
