You use an air fryer, right? This info caught my eye on the NextDoor app and I found it to be interesting…

“My wife cooked some chicken in her new air fryer and our upstairs air quality monitor went nuts, showing a PM (Particulate Matter aka POLLUTANTS IN THE AIR) level of 2.5 out of 91… and you are in the RED ZONE of DANGER at 25! A web search says these air fryers are hazardous if used in an unventilated area, so we’ve moved this out of the house and into the garage!”
Well, I went and looked into this myself… and here’s what I found.
1) Yes. INDOOR AIR FRYER USE can pose risks to your health an wellness. They do indeed raise pollution levels in the air.
2) Nobody seems to care very much about the risks.
There’s more to this story, too. Using a range hood (like over an oven) doesn’t help matters much. So now, I’ve gotta know…
AIR FRYER YES or AIR FRYER NO?
What say you??
