Air fryers have been on the market for a while now and the reviews of these miracle machines are just stellar. You can make french fries, chicken wings, tater tots, bacon and even fish by using up to 75% less fat. The most amazing part is the food still comes out crispy on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside.
Air fryer works on the principle of convection. Hot air is mixed with tiny oil droplets and it gets circulated all around the food until the outside of the food is coated with just enough amount of oil and becomes crispy. The circulating air also reduces cooking time so the food doesn’t have a chance to dry out.
When shopping for an air fryer, there are a few factors to consider:
Are you cooking for yourself plus your significant other? If so then 4 quarts should be enough. If you’re always cooking for more people, look for larger capacity at least 5 quarts and above.
Other Cooking Functions
Lots of machines out there offer a multitude of additional functions such as pressure cooking, steaming, baking, broiling and dehydrating. Make sure to look for one that offers the type of cooking you’re interested in.
Don’t settle for a low-priced air fryer that doesn’t come with the necessary attachments or accessories. You may end up paying more at the end.
