We are giving away the Cozyna Air Fryer (Original 3.2L), recommended by Hungry Girl who said...

If you love the taste of fried food but not excess calories and fat, this appliance delivers. Here at Hungryland, we've gotten pretty good at re-creating fried food sans guilt with our own "faux-fry" oven method. But I've gotta say, the recipes we tried in our air fryer came out even crispier. It gets better: We tried them with and without a small amount of oil (per the air fryer instructions) and found that NO added oil is needed to achieve that crispy finish.

It's NOT a uni-tasker. I'd hesitate to recommend splurging on a kitchen gadget that can only do one thing. So I was pretty happy to learn that our air fryer can also bake, grill, and roast. I'm talking meatballs, steak... even muffins and cake! The manual includes a comprehensive chart with foods, temps, and times, which I LOVE.

It's a time saver! My oven takes around 10 minutes to pre-heat, but an air fryer takes only about 3 minutes. Plus, some recipes cook WAY faster in an air fryer... My butternut squash fries were air-fryer ready in just 12 minutes, versus the 35 minutes they take in the oven!

Clean-up is a breeze. No messy pans or oily skillets. You can toss the fryer pan and the basket right into the dishwasher when you're done with 'em.

The built-in timer has an auto switch-off feature to keep the absent-minded chef in check. Have you ever gotten distracted while something was in the oven and returned to burnt food? Our air fryer's self-timer turns off the unit when time is up!



The winner isBev who said, "Forgiveness!!!! I call WW the program of Mercy and Grace. I learned to forgive myself. If I mess up a day WW is forgiving and I get right back on track and don’t feel like I have to give up for one slip up. I have never lost this much weight and keeping it off because I found Grace with WW."

Congratulations, Bev! Please contact support@simple-nourished-living.comto claim your prize.
