An air fryer is just that…a fryer. Instead of using frying oil, it uses hot air to fry, bake and grill food. Unlike other fryers, where oil is needed to fry foods, the air fryer relies solely on circulating hot air to fry its foods. This eliminates most of the excess oils and fat that you would normally find in foods such as french fries and chicken nuggets. Not many fryers can pull off producing fried foods with little to no oil. Within a matter of minutes, you can have your favorite food dishes prepared. Air fryers are equipped with an adjustable timer. Once your pre-set time is up, the fryer will automatically turn off to prevent your food from overcooking.
Air Fryer Benefits:
•Easy clean up.
•Uses hot-air circulation, the air fryer cooks your ingredients from all angles- with no oil needed.
•This ultimately produces healthier foods than most fryers and spares you from that unwanted aroma of fried foods in your home.
