“The air fryer was probably invented by a guy who just wanted reheated french fries to taste good”

Reheating fast food french fries in a microwave oven usually doesn’t work. “Going back to your ex is like reheating McDonald’s fries” is a saying.

However, air fryers make reheating french fries possible. “the air fryer was invented when someone looked at their sad reheated fries from the microwave and thought ‘this could be better. this could be so much better’” was posted on Twitter by jacky on July 21, 2018. “I am willing to bet who ever invented the Air Fryer was tired of eating cold fries” was posted on Twitter by Face on May 21, 2020. “I no longer throw fries away because of my air fryer ! I love whoever invented it” was posted on Twitter by TheRichAuntie on September 29, 2020.

Wikipedia: Air fryer
An air fryer is a small countertop convection oven designed to simulate deep frying without submerging the food in oil. A fan circulates hot air at high speed, producing a crisp layer via browning reactions such as the Maillard reaction. Some reviews have found that regular convection ovens or convection toaster ovens produce better results.

When my wife said she was buying an air fryer I said it was a waste of money and kitchen space.....yeah that thing gets used like every other day. Nuggets, mozz sticks, mini corn dogs, left over pizza, hash browns....I hated being wrong but in this case was glad I was.
