Here’s what you can cook in the new Air Fryer you just bought

If you recently succumbed to peer pressure and bought one air fryerthere’s a good chance it’s gathering dust in the back of your pantry.

Airfryer became a fad a few years ago when they burst onto the scene claiming to magically cook fried food without oil – or in some cases, maybe just a teaspoon. Instead of immersing French fries in a vat of boiling oil, you throw e.g. your potatoes in the basket of the air fryer and give them just a glass of oil, while the device’s fast air technology blows hot air around the food, giving a crispy, browned exterior and a tender interior. It’s really quite remarkable.

However, the machine has its limitations. You can’t make your favorite batter fried foods in the air fryer because the batter will drip right through the holes in the basket and melt your food completely, limiting the machine to breaded fried foods.

But a common misconception about deep fryers is that they only cook foods you’d think of as “fried.” While the fryer gives a perfectly crispy texture to foods typically fried in oil – think Buffalo cauliflower, fried chicken, French fries, falafel – its convection technology also gives a perfectly moist meatloaf, for example, or the most tender maple soy-glazed salmon you can imagine.

Below we have collected 15 of our favorite food bloggers’ recipes for the air fryer. Dust off your machine and check them out now.
