Air fryers, sometimes called oil less fryers, are devices that work by heating the air inside a closed space and blowing that air onto the food with a fan. Sounds familiar? Yes, they are convection ovens.
That is what convection oven does, it circulates the hot air around the food. This helps distribute heat evenly and also reduces the time it takes for some foods to cooks. It also helps give food a nice browning while the inside remains moist.
But there is more to the story, there are many types of devices and this is where some confusion might start to kick in. There are multiple designs that come with their own pros and cons.
What’s so special about air fryers?
First of all, somebody thought it’s a good idea to call them fryers, which is a bit deceiving but non the less attention grabbing. A better name would be air roasters maybe but I get where that name comes from.
The main premise of these devices is that they are very good alternatives to oil frying. If you think about your health and you want to cut out fried food from your diet then air fryers jump in an propose an alternative without the fat.
Air Fryer Video Must Watch:
You can roast, grill, bake, fry, broil, steam or simply to heat up your already cooked food depending on what kind of device you get and how you set it up.
Given that there is not much oil involved this eliminates the need to store or dispose of quite large quantities of oil like you have to with deep fryers.
Most devices are advertised as being easy pull apart into smaller pieces and easy to clean. Most parts also being machine washable.
