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. It’s easy to clean and preheats much faster than the oven.

This Accessories Kit includes cake pan, pizza pan, baking racks, skewers, silicone mat, silicone egg bites mold. A must have set for the air fryer.

I have this Oil Sprayer to use with the air fryer, perfect for using olive oil and making everything crispy and delicious.
