You might have a few questions before you go any further. Let me see if these help:

Are air fryers good for low carb diets?

Absolutely. It’s a great way to cook air fryer frozen steak, chicken or seafood in minutes. Better yet you can cook air fryer chicken with no breading so they’re crispy but without the added carbs and are keto friendly.

What should you not put in air fryer?

Wet tempura batter or likewise will not work. Cheese isn’t the best, and avoid a thick coating of seasoning.

If you want to start creating your own gluten free buffalo chicken or chicken wings recipes you can print out our air fryer cook times sheet.

This will tell you the temperature and cook times for each type of food. it’s super helpful.
