And now, for the biggest game changer in our kitchen since it’s arrival – our new Midea MFTN3501 Air Fryer! I had no idea what an air fryer could do until this beauty arrived at our doorstep. Chris was soooo excited to give it a whirl at dinner, and we just.can’t.stop. We have literally used it just about every single night at dinner time. I have never tasted such a yummy crisp nugget or french fry – the kids are obsessed and so are we! You can use it to grill, roast and bake your family’s favorites! We’ve even made English Muffin pizzas and toast! What used to get baked in the oven now cooks on the counter top in our Midea Air Fryer, and everything comes out super delicious and perfectly crispy! If you were to deep fry your game day favorites, your guests would be getting almost 80% more fat in their favorite foods! Chris has made the best wings in the Midea Air Fryer and they’re so good, we have to share the recipe – Say goodbye to all the excess fat with the MFTN3501, which sells for $89.99! Get yours here! I want to shout this one from the rooftops of the stadium – it’s THAT GOOD!
