I recently got a new toy in my kitchen, Philips Viva Digital Air Fryer from my friend at Philips.
I have wanted to get an air fryer for a long time, so I was so excited to have it in my kitchen. Not many people like frying in the kitchen, and deep-fryer wastes too much oil and such a hassle to wash as it’s so greasy.
I am just so glad that someone invented the concept of air-frying and now we can air-fry anything, for example: fries, fish, chicken, nuggets and even spring rolls!
Other Recipes You Might Like
Since I have gotten my new toy, I have been using it to make easy fried foods. One of my favorites is sweet potato fries, because it’s so easy to make, plus we really enjoy it as a side dish, especially my picky eater son.
He also loves cheese, so I decided to make this Parmesan sweet potato fries for him a few days ago, just to jazz things up a bit.
The end result is these beautiful, crispy sweet potato fries, not a bit oily. What I love most about the Philips Viva Digital Air Fryer is that you use so little oil—one tablespoon—and clean up is a breeze.
After I am done, I just disassemble the frying basket and tray and off they go into the dish washer. As there is so little oil involved, there is no greasy mess…everything is easy breezy, and I love it.
For sure, I know I will be using the Philips air fryer again and again and make the fried foods that I love, without feeling any guilt.
