A multicooker can be a jack of all trades. New ones that hit the market include air fryer capabilities, where you simply swap the lid for it to perform a fryer function. Despite the name, an air fryer doesn’t fry food. Instead, you put food in the fryer basket, put on the lid and hot air can circulate around the food the way oil does in deep frying, giving your meal a crispy texture without adding calories. Air fryers on their own can be bulky, so a multicooker with dual functions can be a one-stop-shop in your kitchen and eliminate the need for multiple appliances that clutter counter space.
