    Which air fryer do you recommend? I don’t have one. I just did a Google search and saw lots of different types and sizes. TYIA

      Hi Elisa! It is really overwhelming when you start looking. I have an aria air fryer and love it. (This exact model: I have had it for over 3 years and it is still working well. The only issue I have is that I wish I had the 7 quart versus 5 quart for just a little more room in the basket. It is only us 3 I am cooking for but still would be nice for a slightly bigger model. I also have a large one by Instant Pot brand (the vortex) that while it works well, it is just too big. I prefer the basket style option versus the ones that look more like a toaster oven if that makes sense. I would honestly say that a lot of people love the Ninja air fryer as well from what I have seen. You want one big enough to fit the right amount of food for your family. The 5 quart fits enough for our family in general but I like to make extra for leftovers a lot and that is more of the issue. If you wanna chat more, email me! Hope that helps!
