Does an Air-fryer recirculate the oil?

Options
Are there any air-fryers which recirculate the oil rather than letting it seperate out and just dry frying?  Personally I am not bothered about cooking without oil, in fact I suspect the oil is actually healthy so no need to avoid it.  Thinking about getting an air-fryer primarily as a quicker and more efficient method of cooking than using the oven.

    Most things don’t need oil any that do require a tiny amount so nothing to recirculate

    Maybe they don't but if I do add oil will it get circulated oover the food as it is cooking?

    Only in the way that the air will blow it around. Till it hits the hot side & then sticks there.
