Instead of spending all your time in a hot kitchen, panicking at the grocery store for last-minute items, and being stressed out this Thanksgiving, you can create a fast, simple, and delicious turkey dinner in your air fryer oven this year. The air fryer oven will be your secret weapon. When it comes to cooking dinner the last thing you want to do is spend hours in the kitchen prepping and planning a big meal or having a mountain of dishes to clean afterwards. Your main priority should be spending time with family. Cook faster, and with less dishes using an air fryer oven.



We’ve created an entire Thanksgiving meal in an air fryer oven, that will feed 2-4 people with sides, main dishes, and dessert. For this Thanksgiving-inspired meal, we utilized our 12.7 QT Deluxe Air fryer Oven. The air fryer makes it super easy to cook up healthier versions of your holiday favorites. By circulating heat around all sides of the food, it heats food in all directions and most dishes need little to no oil. Air Fryer Ovens have the added benefit of a rotisserie function and 3 rack levels enabling you to cook almost anything.
