Air fryers have been steadily growing in popularity for the past couple of years. The premise is exactly what it sounds like; allowing you to "fry" your favorite healthy, or not-so-healthy, foods without highly caloric oil used heated air.

Usually a countertop kitchen appliance, the air fryer uses convection to circulate hot air around food in order to cook it. Most models come in a two-liter to six-liter capacity and can range anywhere from $70 to $300.

The result? Crispy, crunchy vegetables, potatoes and delectable foods like breaded chicken tenders without the need for excess grease.

Another bonus is that an air fryer can be a major time-saver, as it barely needs any time to preheat and tends to cook foods quicker than a conventional oven.

Kohl's and JCPenney currently have plenty of savings on models from various brands, including Cooks and Cuisinart.

One enthusiastic and impressed reviewer of the Big Boss Oil-Less Air Fryer said that it has been a great way for their family to indulge in their favorite fried chicken in a healthier way.

"I honestly don’t know how we lived without owning [it]! We have the 16 Quart version and it’s perfect for our family of five! We’ve been looking to find ways to eat healthier and this is perfect for doing so... It’s simple to make anything in this oven also! That’s one of my favorite features. I love to marinate chicken, toss it in the oven, turn it on and walk away! It doesn’t get any easier than that!"
