Our writer Lauren Ro has repeatedly sung the praises of her Cuisinart Air Fryer Toaster Oven. The counter-sized gadget, according to her, can truly do it all. At its most basic, it functions as a toaster oven for bread or whatever else you might want to pop in. It’s also a regular oven with a convection option that you can use to bake sweet potatoes or other veggies without having to wait for it to preheat. But Ro says the best part about it is its air-frying function that helps her put a meal on the table for her husband and toddler in literal minutes. She’s used it to cook frozen dumplings to perfection, blister green beans with garlic and almond slices in the time it takes her regular oven to come to temperature, and cook rock-solid frozen sausages thoroughly while she tosses a simple salad. She has said that all of this, not surprisingly, makes her feel like no less than Julia Child in her kitchen. Today, the oven is on sale for more than 30 percent off at Macy’s, thanks to an additional 15 percent discount that is automatically applied at checkout.
