It Can Be Easy to Make Healthy Crispy Food
Eating Healthy Doesn’t Have to Be Boring
Trying to eat healthier can be tough. Because, of course, everything that is not healthy seems to taste just so much better! Air fryers have luckily made it just a bit easier to get the tastes we crave while sticking to healthier meals. This Power Air Fryer Oven Elite has helped around my house so much to get us away from processed foods and still enjoy the foods we love. Healthy crispy food like some deep-fried foods are possible with this nifty little device and I love that it has also completely transformed the eating of leftovers forever as well.

Healthy Crispy Food
My kids love chicken nuggets and fries. I think we could put our local fast food drive-through out of business if we stopped buying fries. And they taste oh so good but we all know that they really are not that healthy. I, personally, am a sucker for fried dumplings. I can just eat a plate of those for a meal. And while I have to boil them first I’d then have to pop them in a pan of hot oil to fry them up.
So, I thought I give them a shot in this handy little countertop oven. It has a frying basket, trays, rotisserie basket, and rotisserie skewers for whatever you might want to cook up. After boiling them I laid them out on a tray and set the oven for 10-15 minutes and let them go. And they Were Perfect Crispy, with even a little browning on the outside just like I like them.I also love sweet potatoes. They are very healthy too so we made up a basket of sweet potato chips. I simply sliced up a potato with a mandoline slicer, sprinkled some salt on them, popped them in the rotisserie basket, and cooked them up. Let’s just say that I didn’t get many. My kids ate them all. Now they ask for these more often than french fries from the drive-through. Seriously. And it is SO much healthier! You need little to no oil and they come out crispy and crunchy and satisfying.
There are so many things you can cook up in this countertop oven. It’s so much more than an air fryer. I have started using this much more than my regular full-sized oven. I can bake in it, make my own rotisserie chicken, make “Kabobles” as my kids call them (skewers), and even enjoy my leftovers. While I have to keep the top clear for the air exhaust, I find it doesn’t emit a ton of heat. The oven itself gets warm but never hot. And the Power Air Fryer Oven Elite is very much a set it and forget it device. I can pick the best-premade selection or quickly set my time and temp and let it go to work.
Since it operates as a rotisserie and convection oven, it cooks incredibly fast. I don’t have to wait for it to warm up either which really cuts down on time. And with three hungry kids, time is of the essence. Do the kids want crispy chicken strips? Sure, no problem. And in no time! I simply pop them on the tray or skewer, set the oven, and go. Tasty, healthy chicken strips in no time. No overpriced processed foods either, I can make it up myself without any real extra trouble. I even made up my own Chicken Satay, which I’ve never had outside of takeout. It was great!
My daughter and I love quesadillas for a quick meal. Making them in the microwave leaves them soft and floppy though, getting cheese and salsa everywhere. Now I can make them in the air fryer oven and they turn out crispy and solid. The tortillas are delicious and hold all the fillings in place without being too crunchy.
All too often I make too much food. At least for one meal, and I usually do this intensionally for an easier meal down the road. Usually, however, I expect the reheated leftovers to be slightly subpar. They usually taste good but reheating in the microwave changes the texture. Now I can just put them in the Power Air Fryer Oven Elite and they are heated evenly and crisp right back up to perfection. No more soggy leftovers reheating in their own oils. It’s been pretty life-changing. This Power Air Fryer Oven Elite is getting much more use than all of my other appliances combined now, it’s just that handy.
