Hammacher Schlemmer’s offers the best, the only, and the unexpected ans has for 166 years!!
You know I love a wide variety of things, what person doesn’t? So when I find a site or a store that offers all sorts of things you know that I’ll be there at least once! It was no difference when I found Hammacher Schlemmer. I knew I wanted to spread the word about them, and was so thrilled that they agreed to let me do a review!

So of course when I saw things on their own gift guide, I decided I wanted to do one of those items for MY Gift Guide!!
So seeing an Oilless fryer made me light up with excitement! Oilless.. but still… fried?! There’s something special about fries, tater tots, cheese sticks and more that make them taste so much better fried than they ever have oven baked.. to me anyway..
But, how good could something be fried WITHOUT the oil? Come on, it couldn’t really.. be so good. Right?
We had some tater tots and decided to do a Chili Cheese Tots night (instead of fries because we had the tots for something we then didn’t use them for!) This was the perfect chance to bust out the Green Air Fryer!!
This was our first batch… we actually ended up accidentally putting in too many. But it was okay, we just fixed it after this picture and it worked just fine. The only thing that happened was they just didn’t cook well at first. Also, it is recommended for things like this that you stop half through the cook time and shake the food up so they can cook more evenly.
Holy they were PERFECT!! Crispy and wonderful, much unlike how they tend to be from the oven. They were ‘fried’ but without the oil and I didn’t feel like a total greasy pig eating them! The kids are loving our oil free fried items!
I will like to note that you DO have to use SOME oil for certain products. It’s not NEARLY the amount you would have in your standard deep fryer that you plunge your food into a vat of oil and leave it there to cook. Not nearly at all. So you’re still eating healthier than you would be otherwise.
I’m so glad tat Hammacher Schlemmer has so many awesome products! Including this Green Air Fryer that we just love here. Do you know anyone who uses or would love a deep fryer? Do you use one? Would you ever make the switch to an oilless fryer like this? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the commends below!
