Eric Theiss Transforms Leftover Mashed Potatoes in the Power AirFryer XL

Up to 80% Fewer Calories in the Power AirFryer XL

Hey, guys! Eric Theiss here.

This holiday season, I’ve been cooking piping hot, homemade doughnuts. Do I feel guilty? Not at all. In the Power AirFryer XL, I fry using super-heated air instead of oil. I can finally enjoy my favorite fried foods without unhealthy added fat or extra calories. French fries, mozzarella sticks, hot wings…I cook them all to crisp perfection in my AirFryer.

No Messy Cleanup

Not only do I avoid unhealthy trans-fat, the nonstick fry basket ensures my kitchen stays clean and organized. With the Power AirFryer XL, there are no pots and pans to pull out of the cabinets. Plus, there’s no soaking or scrubbing afterwards.

Not Sure What to do with Holiday Leftovers?

Many of you have asked what I do with leftovers. This year, I created a super crispy recipe specifically for the AirFryer. It will help clean out your fridge & get five-stars from your family, too: Golden-Fried Potato Croquettes.

These cook in only 10 minutes in the Power AirFryer XL— no butter or oil required. Those mashed potatoes from your holiday dinners? It’s easier than ever to transform them into crisp, kid-friendly croquettes. You get golden-brown crusts on the outside with warm, cheddar-cheesy potato inside—all with just the push of one pre-set button.

I love to serve these crispy potato pancakes as a side dish with steaks or on their own as a snack or appetizer. The best part? I love to see my family eating healthy meals that also taste delicious.
