The Kitchen Revolution Of The Air Fryer

An air fryer is one of the most convenient and beautiful things to own for foodies. It is also better for people who are watching their weight since it’s much healthier than frying your food in oil. It cuts calories down to 70-80% and produces much less fat. Air fryers are usually square or egg-shaped devices that are as small as a coffee maker and don’t take up much space in the kitchen. The fan pushes heated air up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and works just like a normal convection oven. It works by creating a crispy brown coating that keeps the insides soft so it feels like you’re eating fried foods without the additional oil. There’s also a built-in basket that catches all the oil from the foods in a basket for easy cleaning.

Air fryers can prepare anything. From French fries to chicken nuggets to perfectly cooked salmon. This device isn’t only for the sake of convenience but it can also be used for special meals. With an air fryer, food doesn’t have to be breaded since it already creates a crispy outer layer at the perfect temperature. An example is well-cooked vegetables with delicious seasoning. All you’ll need to do is chop up a few veggies, and season them with spices and salt alongside a small spritz of any cooking oil of your choice. The vegetables will be ready in well under 10 minutes.

For meat-eaters, you can easily pop in some chicken or burgers into your air fryer. All you need to do is season it (without the breading) for an evenly cooked piece of meat. Some people attest that the two best vegetables to air fry are okra and eggplant because it strips the moisture of the vegetables making them crunchy like chips. This is a great snack to prepare for work or for the family and is a suitable alternative to greasy junk foods. Another way air fryers revolutionize cooking is that you can reheat last night’s dinner like pizza in your air dryer. Usually, when heating it in a microwave or oven, it tends to go soggy but with an air fryer, you can enjoy your favorite slice of pizza just like it was popped straight out of the oven and onto your plate.
