Why I Love My Air Fryer

Hi friend! I hope you’re having a great week! I’ve been eyeing the Beautiful big daddy air fryer and 4-slice toaster and just got them last weekend! I’m CRAZY for both of them!

I’ve had the smaller versions of both the air fryer and toaster for over 2 years and they’ve worked wonderfully. We use both of them daily!

Jordan usually takes chicken nuggets in her lunch, so I buy them frozen and cook them in the air fryer in the morning before school. She gets six and I heat them at 400 degrees for about 8 minutes. She says they stay warm until lunch in her thermos. She likes ketchup in this lidded container.

But the air fryer isn’t just for kid food! I use it for chicken breasts, thighs, drums, veggies, nachos, potatoes (roasted, baked, fries) and more! Skinny Taste even makes and air fryer specific cookbook.

Last weekend, Elliott made chicken thighs with asparagus and zucchini in the air fryer and it turned out delicious!

This time, I opted for the black air fryer and toaster, which are really beautiful in person, but I don’t think the photos do them justice!

The four slice toaster is so much better for a family like ours that makes several slices of toast at a time. The toaster is touch activated and features 7 settings plus browning control.

You can also use the frozen, bagel, and gluten free options for easy heating and less burning. The slots are also extra large to fit bigger things like wide bagels.

They also made the base a cord wrap so you don’t have unsightly cords running loose.

The 9 quart air fryer is perfect for cooking larger amounts of food. It has a middle divider that legs you separate the things you’re cooking, but you can remove that part if you want to.

While using the divider, you can cook two meals two different ways! That is so genius! You can make it so the two foods finish cooking together at the same time. I love that option becuase it makes getting dinner on the table that much easier!

The air fryer is also touch activated and has settings for dehydrating, reheat, broil, bake, roast and air fry.

You can set the temperature from 90 – 450 degrees.
