I LOVE fried foods!! I have a deep fryer at home and my husband loves to cook fried chicken, onion rings, french fries…anything that can be fried!

I have found such a great fryer and I am excited to share it with you. Let me introduce you to the Simple Living Products 5.2L XL Manual Air Fryer!

This ensures no oil, less fat and fewer calories.

I never used my deep fryer at home, that was my husband’s job. He was comfortable with using one, however I was always afraid of getting burned by the oil. Thank goodness you do not need oil to cook with this air fryer!  I was very intrigued with this product, and wondered how the taste of food would be. Would the food be crunchy? Would it be tasty? Would it be just like cooking in the oven? When I received this, I wanted to immediately try it out! This fryer is very simple to use. Included in the box is the fryer, cooking rack, food divider and recipe book.



What I love about this fryer is you can make so many varieties of food in it! Not just your typical fries/onion ring type foods. It Air Frys, Bakes, Steams, Sautes, Grills and Roasts. It is big enough to accommodate food for my family of 4. The control panel is easy to use, just set temperature and set the timer and you are done!! The first food items that we tried out were curly fries and onion rings. My family loved fries and onion rings, and we always deep fry them. I was excited to see how this would compare to a traditional deep fryer with oil.

First up were the fries. I put about half the bag in the fryer basket, closed it, set temperature and timer. So easy! The fryer alerted me when my food was done. A warning:  The fryer gets extremely hot. I used an oven mitt to remove the basket and I also used a wooden cutting board to put the basket on. The fries came out amazing!! I was so surprised by how crispy they were. They still had the delicious fried taste but with no oil and 80% less fat. I did the same thing with the onion rings and they came out fabulous as well! My kids love tater tots so we tried out them. It is so great to just toss some tots in this air fryer without starting the oven and waiting awhile for it to heat up. This only takes a few minutes to heat up, and the tots only took 10 minutes which is twice as quick then the oven bake directions.

I also tried out a cooked rotisserie chicken. It took a total of 30 minutes to re-heat and it came out so crispy and juicy!




Here are some of the foods you can cook in this fryer:

  • Fish sticks
  • Chicken nuggets and Chicken fingers
  • Chicken wings and drumsticks
  • Any fried foods
  • Veggies
  • Burgers
  • Pizza
  • Lasagna
  • Fajitas

In conclusion, I love how versatile this air fryer is. I love how I don’t have to turn on my oven to make my family a meal, or worry about the added oil and fats from a deep fryer. This really is a great all around kitchen tool to have!
