HOW TO CHOOSE AN AIR FRYER ?

  • I use the Cosori Premium 5.8 Quart Air Fryer, which I received for review purposes and it’s so easy to use. My favorite feature is how fast it will cook and I’m not waiting on the oven to preheat. I also love that it’s easy to clean.
  • This Accessories Kit includes cake pan, pizza pan, baking racks, skewers, silicone mat, silicone egg bites mold – all super handy.
  • I have this Oil Sprayer to use with the air fryer, perfect for using olive oil.

  1. Super quick and easy made these and everyone said they were the best stuffed mushrooms they’ve ever had which I felt as well. Only difference is I used both white and baby Bella mushrooms and topped with a little extra cheese.
