This is a major advantage if we consider that with these fryers we can forget smell of fried food that pervades the kitchen for days on end. It's not actually correct to say that an air fryer uses no oil for frying: indeed, only a spoonful is needed because the hot air stored in the cooking chamber does all the work. In this space, the air circulates quickly and thus reaches very high temperatures suitable for cooking food.
The prime advantage is its ability to fry, simmer, grill, roast and bake a wide range of different meals in a healthy manner without using oil or fat. With little effort, countless different meals, dishes and complete menus can be prepared perfectly. On top, the hot air deep fryer is a more efficient device regarding energy use and time requirements than a baking oven for instance. Thanks to an integrated timer functionality and special programs, cooking becomes a virtually passive activity. A signal tone and/or the device display notify you once the meal is ready.
After preparation, the air fryer is easy to clean and impresses with its low maintenance requirements. Whether for singles, couples, or families with children, the hot air deep fryer is a true treasure for meal preparation in any household. In addition it also suitable for people who consciously value a healthy diet or have to follow specific dietary requirements. This make it ideal for people such as diabetics or those trying to lose weight.
Hot air fryers work thanks to their special cooking chamber. Before we look at how an air fryer works, it is important to clarify one fundamental concept: frying is not done with oil, but rather with the high temperatures that the oil reaches. In other words, the oil becomes a heat carrier and enables food to be cooked by reaching high temperatures. In an air fryer, no oil is needed because the heat carrier is the air itself. The heated air is circulated at a very high speed so that the food is cooked evenly, simulating the behaviour of oil in conventional frying.
With conventional deep-fat fryers, the food has to be immersed completely in the hot oil or turned halfway through cooking. In hot air frying, the food is completely surrounded by the heat carrier and, as a result, the food becomes crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The hot air can be heated up to temperatures of around 200 °C. Because of the high heat demand of the cooking chamber - the heat used to cook the food - air fryers are very energy-intensive, with electricity consumption of between 800 and 2,000 watts.
Thanks to this method, the hot air deep fryer only requires minimal amounts of fat and oil (e.g. a small teaspoon) for specific dishes. Fried and breaded dishes nevertheless turn out golden brown and delightfully crispy. In addition, many other methods of preparation can be employed, such as cooking, simmering and steaming vegetables, meat, fish or seafood, with the cooking juices remaining in the deep fryer instead of evaporating. Equipped with a grill, gridiron, griddle and baking functionality, a hot air deep fryer is moreover able to roast, grill, thaw and roast and is, therefore, able to replace your stove, grill and oven.
