Air Fryers Vs. Convection Ovens: Which One Is The Right Cooking Appliance For Your Kitchen?

Air fryers are becoming quite popular, as they can produce food with a crisp exterior without the hassle of deep frying or the added calories from oil. They're essentially small, single-purpose convection ovens. They circulate air rapidly inside the unit while cooking, which quickly cooks the surface of food and produces a crisp texture. However, you can achieve similar results from a traditional convection oven by cooking food on a crisper rack, which has holes in the surface that allow air to circulate around foods.
