The Absolute Best Uses For Your Air Fryer
Reheating Leftovers
An air fryer is much better than a microwave for reheating leftovers, especially fried foods. Not only does it provide the same crispiness, but it only takes a few minutes to reheat them.
Crisping Chickpeas
One favorite way to eat chickpeas is as a crispy and perfectly seasoned snack, and the best way to achieve this is through an air fryer. Dump canned or cooked chickpeas in the air fryer, add salt and other favorite seasonings, and wait around 15 minutes while they crisp up.
Cooking Bacon
Cooking bacon in an air fryer will make bacon crispy and ready to go in no time. However, the downside is that bacon produces grease or smoke, so add a touch of water to the drawer to avoid this.
Cooking Steak
An air fryer is the best bet for cooking steak for those who don't have access to a grill, oven, or cast-iron skillet. Cooking time for steak can be 9-14 minutes, but it also depends on the steak’s thickness and preparation.
Cooking Frozen Foods
Some frozen foods are not great when cooked in the microwave. As per The Kitchn, foods that are meant to be fried — like chicken nuggets, tater tots, French fries, and cauliflower wings — are going to crisp up and brown in the air fryer in a matter of minutes.
