Air fryers have exploded in popularity in the past few years. They’re fast, convenient, and fry food without oil or fat. We love air fryers and there are two great ones on the market: the Philips HD9230/26 Air Fryer or the Avalon Bay Deluxe Air Fryer 100. We can only have one favorite, however, so we decided to run each unit through a head-to-head comparison to see which was best. Here’s what we found.

Convection technology has been with us for a very long time. The Maxson Corporation used it to market frozen dinners in 1945. Professional chefs started using it shortly after, but it but it’s only recently begun to make its way into our homes. Now that it’s here, though, people can’t get enough of it. We wanted to know how come? Why are air fryers and convection ovens the new best way to cook?

Momma Bakes Lave Cake in Our Avalon Bay Air Fryers

Our friend Jenna at Momma Told Me loves her Avalon Bay Air Fyer. In fact, a couple of months ago, she figured out how to use it to bake molten lava cake. If you’ve never had it, it’s chocolate cake with melted chocolate baked inside. Once we learned about it, we couldn’t get enough. Then we realize the only people we know who love dessert more than us are our readers, so we asked Jenna to share her recipe and she was nice enough to agree. Bon appetit!

Napoleon Gas Grill Review: Delicious Food and Easy to Use

Napoleon-1This in-depth Napoleon gas grill review all started because I love to grill: steak, potatoes, corn-on-the-cob, you name it. I’ve been using a Viking grill for the past few years, but when it finally died on me at the start of grilling season this year I had to stop around for a new one fast. I needed a built-in gas grill, something with a lot of BTU’s and a great deal of reliability. Something I could use for years to come. That’s when I found the Napoleon Prestige PRO 500RISB. It’s got 80,000 BTU’s, sixburners, 900 square inches of cooking area, and it’s made from stainless steel with a polished chrome finish.

Even Cows Need to Cool Off: Evaporative Coolers & Natural Ventilation

Evaporative cooling has become a common feature in barns and livestock facilities. It’s often incorporated into tunnel ventilation systems or used as part of a freestanding systems of misters and fans.  Few farmers are aware of the benefits of a freestanding, portable evaporative cooler can provide, both in terms of costs and cooling.

Too Hot to Cook? Not for an Air Fryer!

If you’ve ever cooked anything during summertime, you know kitchens can get extremely uncomfortable when it’s hot out. Ovens emit a lot of heat and it can rarely be vented fast enough to stop everything from heating up. Even air conditioners can’t keep up, not without sky high electric bills. It gets so bad, some people give up baking and broiling altogether and switch to cold meals instead. Others stay up late and only bake when temperatures drop, but there’s a better solution: use an air fryer.
