The Air Fryer

You may have heard of "Air Fryers" and wonder what its means in the Kitchen Appliance realm  along with its positive health impact. Well, you've come to the right place. We'll talk about how the Air Fryer works and the benefits derived from it. Let's dive right in. 

 What is an Air Fryer?

An Air fryer from it's name, is a Fryer that fries foods with hot air. The air fryer is a revolutionized kitchen appliance for cooking food through the circulation of superheated air and offers healthy, tasty foods while using less oil.

How Does An Air Fryer Work?

Air fryers use Rapid Air Technology to cook any type of food that you would otherwise dunk in deep fat. This technology works by circulating air to high degrees, up to 200C with a top grill, to “fry” foods such as fish, chips, pastries, chicken, and more. Air fryers render foods perfectly browned and crisp with less fat – up to 70% less, as compared to traditional cooking methods.

The Air Fryer Chamber

The air fryer’s cooking chamber radiates heat from a heating element close to the food, thus cooking it more efficiently and appropriately. There is an exhaust fan located above the cooking chamber that helps to provide the required airflow from the underside. This allows the heated air to constantly pass through the food. Through this, every part of the food receives the same heating temperature.It is a simple yet innovative method of cooking.

The Air Fryer Exhaust System

The exhaust system controls the temperature that is increased by internal pressure and emits extra air as needed to cook the food. The extra air is thoroughly filtered before being released, thus being better to the environment. Air fryers are both user and environment-friendly – harmless and odorless!

The Air Fryer Cooling System

The Air Fryer has an inbuilt cooling system with a fan mounted on a motor axis to control the internal temperature. This fan ensures that the environment inside the air fryer stays clean and healthy. The cooling system allows fresh air to pass through the filters and proceed to the bottom of the fryer. The passage of fresh air from top to bottom helps the air fryer to cool its internal parts.

Similar to a rice cooker, an air fryer has a wide removable tray. You can serve a hot, crisp meal within 12 minutes with the Air Fryer.

Anything you can think of, from chicken to chips to fish can be fried healthier in an air fryer because its cooking method requires less oil use.
