Magic Chef Air Fryer

I was recently given the Magic Chef Air Fryer for my review. As always all opinions are MY OWN. 

I’m not sure about you, but I’ve tried making all things the healthier way. French Fries, chicken wings, eggplant and so many other things, baking them in the oven opposed to frying them in cooking oil. 

I’m never impressed the way they come out. No, they do not taste the same, not even close. I’ve tried convincing myself that they taste good for the sake of being healthy but truth be told, I usually end up disliking everything that gets baked instead of fried. 

So when I was given the opportunity to review this Magic Chef Air Fryer I figured it was worth a shot. However I really didn’t go in with high expectations.

At first I thought this was going to be small.  Meaning I wouldn’t be able to cook a whole lot of food at one time.  However, I was wrong.  The basket area is big and can hold a lot of food.

The first thing I made in my Magic Chef Air Fryer was potato skins.

As you can see I was easily able to fit 6 halves of full size potatoes.  I set the temperature at 400 degrees and set the timer for 10 minutes.  I was continuously checking on them because I didn’t know what to expect as far as cooking times.  After about 8-9 minutes they were golden brown.  At that point I added the cheese and bacon and cooked for an additional 3-4 minutes.

The finished product was delicious!

Golden brown edges, delicious melted cheese all cooked perfectly.  They were delicious and the kids and I loved them.

Tonight I made French Fries in the Magic Chef Air Fryer.  My husband didn’t know how I cooked them.  After eating a few he said, “hmmmm these are really good!”  He knew I didn’t fry them because there was no smell of grease and just assumed I bake them, and baked fries aren’t anyone’s favorite.  So he was pleasantly surprised how good they tasted.  I told him I cooked them in the air fryer and he is now a believer too.
