I have used an Aukey Home Air Fryer:

  • This air fryer features a transparent window that allows you to see how well your dinner is cooking without lifting the air fryer lid.
  • It has 8 preset menus including Max Crisp, Air Fry, Air Broil, Air Grill, Air Roast, Bake, Dehydrate, and Reheat.
  • The unit came with a nonstick Detachable Basket with two handles and a crisper plate.
  • This Aukey home Air Fryer has worked really well. Cooking is a breeze with an aukey air fryer. 
  • I love its control touchscreen and methods of cooking. We would recommend this device to anyone looking for a nice air fryer.

Tips to Make Coconut Shrimps:

  • If using frozen shrimp, then make sure that it has been thawed.
  • Don't overcrowd the air fryer's basket, this will prevent the shrimp from getting crispy.
  • Be sure to pat dry your shrimp, to avoid a soggy crust.
  • Don’t forget to flip the shrimp halfway through the cooking process, this will allow even cooking.
