Are air fryer ovens healthy? Air fryers require little to no oil to cook food, unlike traditional deep frying where foods are submerged in cooking oil. Because of this, air fried food tends to contain less hydrogenated oils and harmful trans fats. Another benefit of air frying is that it’s easy to get that crispy crunch on vegetables. You’ll be able to cook bell peppers, zucchini, squash, broccoli and more with just a dash of olive oil – a great way to get picky eaters to eat their veggies. What are the best foods to cook with air fry? We love that air fry lets us make healthier, crispy and delicious meals for the entire family right in our oven, so our personal favourite food to fry is chicken wings (have you tried our delicious Thai-style wings recipe?).
