Instant Pots may be all the rage right now, but there’s another kitchen tool we’re obsessed with, and it makes eating healthy SO much easier. The beloved air fryer lets you make fries, duh, without all the oil, but it can be used for so much more. Here are some of the most incredible things you can make in one, from mains to sides to desserts and snacks. To check out our full review, be sure to watch Delish’s Air Fryer video.
