What is an Air Fryer and how to use an Air Fryer?

Air fryer is a groundbreaking technology introduced by Australians and Europeans in 2010 and later adopted by the rest of the world. It is essential equipment in every household as it makes frying an easy and healthy process.

Air fryer, as the name suggests, is a frying machine which does not require oil to fry. An air fryer uses hot air to fry the food placed in it. Hot air is circulated throughout the fryer that gives the crisp outside and cooks the food inside.

As far as the taste of air fried food is concerned, it can never match up to the chips deep fried in oil but can be a healthy substitute as this requires no oil. A tablespoon of oil can be added to give the proper texture of fried food as it enhances the taste.

The air fryer uses the rapid air technology in which air around 200 c is generated and circulated around the item that needs to be fried. The rapid air technology is the new face of cooking technology as it has the potential to substitute traditional frying methods.

Air fryer food has 80% less fat content as compared to traditional fried foods. Air fryer has other benefits as well:

  • It is environment-friendly
  • It has its own cooling system
  • Temperature controlled
  • Less or no oil
  • A healthy option
  • Easy to process
