While most of our articles are published online, from time to time articles written by one of the TastingBuds appears in print. We’ve done interviews before and even appeared on TV, but we haven’t had a full feature in another publication … until now. Recently Peter’s enthusiasm for the convenience of air fryers spilled over into a three-page story for the local newspaper, The Austin American-Statesman.
This print article, also available online, is all about air fryers — what they are, why their useful, and what you can cook with them. There’s even full recipes for air-fryer Korean pork belly, sweet potato fries, and kale chips.
Here’s a quick preview of the article:
An air fryer is a versatile kitchen gadget that can make food crispy and fast.
As the name suggests, this countertop appliance can help you turn your favorite eats into golden brown treats, without the mess or excessive grease associated with deep frying.
Almost anything that can be baked can be air-fried too, the main difference being that air fryers can crisp foods more evenly and quickly than traditional ovens. And because of a clever design that incorporates a non-stick basket, flipping foods to ensure even cooking is simple, and cleanup is a breeze.
Air fryers are compact, so they won’t heat up your house as much as a full-sized oven, which is important during the intense Texas summers. On scorching-hot, 105-degree days, I’ve even cooked outside with my air fryer to give my air conditioner a much-needed break.
No matter the season, I put my air fryer to use in the kitchen almost every day. I’ve grown to love the little gadget because it makes cooking many foods simple and yields consistent results, time after time.
