In my small kitchen with limited counter space, the Gourmia 7 Quart Digital Air Fryer does the work of an oven, a toaster oven, a deep fryer, a microwave and a dehydrator, and it does most of those jobs in less time. Runners up: the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus for saving endless amounts of time in mincing garlic, ginger and chillies, and the NutriBullet Pro for high-powered blending that takes up less than half the space of a normal blender
Katya completed a bachelor's degree in education at Ithaca College, and went on to do a sous chef internship under Chef Matt Props in Durham, NC and a stage at Dirt Candy on NYC's Lower East Side.
