Air fryers have been growing in popularity in the last couple of years. They are considered a healthier alternative to deep-fryers because, instead of oil, they use heated air with fine oil droplets to cook the food.
Cuts calorie intake
Like we mentioned before, the air fryer cooks all of your ingredients without a single drop of oil. Some people like to add a tablespoon of oil to the recipe – just to maintain the flavor – but if you compare this to the amount of oil you’d use to deep fry your food regularly, you’re still cutting the fat content, which will decrease the amount of calories and will allow you to lose weight.
Most air fryers come with a cook book
Are you new to the aire fryer game and feel a little lost when it comes to picking recipes? Most air fryers come with recipes specially designed to be prepared with an air fryer. You won’t have to think about what’s for dinner, just open your book and find an easy, healthy dish you’ll like to try.
Prepare food faster
Whether you are a working mom who finds it hard to spend time in the kitchen, or a college student who’s always on the go, the air fryer has you covered. You can cook fries in just 12 minutes! The air fryer comes with a timer that instantly shuts off once the food is cooked, and the maximum amount of time you can set up is 30 minutes, meaning that most recipes will be perfectly cooked before that.
Cooks different things at the same time!
Most air fryers include a food separator. This gives you the chance to put all of your ingredients in and cook them at the same time, without them getting all mixed up. Do you want to have chicken and fries for lunch? Just put them into the air fryer and wait for the timer to go off.
Easy to clean and safer to use
Deep frying food means having to heat a large amount of oil and can end up in spilling or splashing, which will cause injuries if you’re not careful. Air fryers help you avoid the drama. They only use air, so there’s no spilling of hot liquids. The insides are made of an anti-adherent material which allows you to clean the whole fryer fairly quickly after you’re done using it.
