Air fryers are large countertop appliances that offer a bold promise: perfectly fried food using very little oil. But does the air fryer’s claim have merit, or is it just marketing? To find out, we tested air fryers.
When you enjoy the taste of fried food, but not the oil or grease used to cook it, air fryers are an ideal alternative. They function like a miniature convection oven, reaching temperatures of 230 to 440 degrees Fahrenheit in order to caramelize or crisp the food. On eBay, you can choose from different sizes, manufacturers, colors, and features of new, gently used, and Certified Refurbished air fryers for sale at reasonable prices.
