How do you air fry food?

You use an Air Fryer to air fry the food.  Well, an Air Fryer is the increasingly popular kitchen appliance that helps you achieve a crispy deep-fried-like texture in your food, without actually using just a bit of oil.  An air fryer circulates super-hot air mixed with tiny droplets of oil.  This hot air quickly crisps up the food being cooked as well as gives it a lovely golden brown colour.
