Why we prefer making French fries in an air fryer
It’s okay to have cheat meals. Craving some French fries can feel like a justified cheat meal. It is not so unusual after you have been on working out hard.
But here is the catch. Even though we all enjoy and crave some crispy and delicious fries, it is still not the best thing to eat for the amount of oil it contains. I wouldn’t prefer serving something that has a lot of oil and fat to my family or me in any given situation. So when it comes to french fries, it is always better if we could reduce the amount of oil we have to use for making french fries at home. That’s precisely why we prefer making french fries in air fryers.
