CNET's sister site Chowhound has a long list and dozens of great cookbooks cataloging all of the things you can make in an air fryer, which uses super convection and very little or no oil to achieve crispy fried-like results. Our favorites include chicken wings, french fries and just about anything from the frozen snacks aisle at Trader Joe's
