13 creative air-fryer recipes to stretch your SmartPoints on myWW

Crispy crusts coming your way!

Air frying delivers wonderfully crispy food without all the oil you need for success in regular frying. This increasingly popular kitchen tool sits on your countertop and works like a miniature convection oven: Hot air is continuously circulated around whatever food you’ve added to the machine’s cooking basket. The outside of the food achieves crispy, crunchy goodness, while the inside stays perfectly tender. Air fryers do a great job of delivering the fried food experience without any of the actual frying. To experience the full range of what this little workhorse can do, try out all of the recipes below, which range from appetizers to dessert, and include favorites like falafel and funnel cake. And did we mention fried chicken? Prepare your tastebuds to be impressed—and get ready to give your air fryer the prime kitchen counter real estate such a handy piece of gear deserves.
