Air Fryer Oven

The PowerAirFryer Oven is an electric multicooker that serves as a toaster, convection oven, deep fryer, rotisserie oven, dehydrator, pizza grill, and even a microwave.

It heats up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, and its whirlwind of superheated hot air ensures crispy-fried flavor without all the fat and added calories.

The air fryer is available in 6-quart and 8-quart sizes, and in either white, black, or red. As a bonus, it comes with three cookbooks.

Available at Power and Amazon, as well as retail stores nationwide.
