Yes, it’s possible to fry food without tons of oil. Meet the incredibly popular Cosori Air Fryer —it’s $20 off with “clip-in” coupon right now at Amazon.
Air fryers use much less oil than traditional frying. The machine circulates super hot air around whatever food you’re cooking to create that crispy, crunchy outcome we all want — but it does so only using a few tablespoons of oil.
To put that into perspective, normal fryers use 50 times more oil than air fryers.
Air fryers cook up food with tons of flavor but much less fat content and with fewer harmful compounds than are found in most traditionally fried foods (specifically arcylamide, which studies show could be linked to cancer).
And if that’s not enough to convince you, the customer reviews on the Cosori Air Fryer might. The machine has more than 3,600 reviews and 4.7 stars.

“This air fryer is awesome!” one review stated. “I need a large basket for walleye and this is the largest I could find (10x10), which was a selling point. However, there are so many benefits! The programmed options, the ease of cleaning, the safety button on the basket, the price, just to name a few. I've only had it a few days and I've already made a home for it on my counter and replaced my smaller, less versatile Phillip's air fryer with this dynamo. I'll keep the other one for things like fries or potatoes, while using this one for the main items”
Not only do shoppers say this air fryer has great results, they say it’s incredibly easy to use on a wide variety of foods.
One shopper wrote: “I love this air fryer! I use it to make hamburgers, chicken wings, sausages, bacon, to cook vegetables, and to reheat already cooked foods. I do a lot of grilling in the summer but I don't like cooking meat indoors because of the smoke and grease that gets everywhere. This air fryer does not smoke and grease does not escape. Everything I have made so far has come out very well cooked and delicious. It's also very fast.”
The durability comes in handy, too.
“I never write reviews, but in this case I will,” wrote a happy shopper. “This Cosori air fryer is a super nice fryer. It's easy to use and the clean up is so easy. I use it almost every day. I work long hours, this makes My time cooking so much quicker. Great Product.”
