Kalorik Air Fryer

Instead of quitting fried food cold turkey, ease yourself into healthier eating by swapping deep-fried treats for air-fried goodies. An air fryer gives your french fries, vegetables, chicken, and more that crispy texture you love while allowing you to ditch the unhealthy oils and fats they're typically associated with. And since this fryer can grill, bake, fry, or roast a wide variety of foods, you might never have a reason to turn on your oven again. ($100;
