Whether your family is big on buffalo wings, crispy Brussels sprouts or mozzarella sticks, they’ll absolutely love an air fryer. It makes all your favorite fried foods, minus the oil (and minus the guilt). It can also roast, reheat and dehydrate, making it the perfect tool for all your family's favorite foods. Plus, it can fit up to four quarts of fries, veggies or meat, so you’ll have enough to feed the whole crew — and still have leftovers.

“Oh my goodness I want to use this for everything,” one shopper shared. “I like to think of this as a personal sized convection oven on steroids. Veggie burgers are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Roasted vegetables, fish sticks, chicken, burgers, fries, fish all with about 30 to 40 percent shorter cook times than the oven and only a three minute preheat time (vs 6 to 10 oven minutes).”

She even suggested making counter space for it."
