Air fryers are becoming increasingly popular these days specially in the U.S. These devices make big promises that appeal to many people most notably to those with health-conscious eating habits.
Let’s dive into what these devices promise, if they deliver on their promises and what should you be looking at when shopping for such devices as there are plenty of options and the differences are not at all clear cut.
They might be fast and easy to operate, allowing you to cook without headaches after a crazy day at work. They might be easy to clean so that you can reuse them at a faster rate than others. Some might remove the fear of burning your food by stopping cooking at a set time. Some are just healthier or more convenient.
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.
On the side of taste there is nothing to replace the oil fryer. I don’t care what the commercials say you just don’t get the same taste with the other fryers. You get somewhat similar, good alternative tastes but not the same.
Also note that you will need a touch of oil when you want to replicate frying so there is still a bit of oil involved but indeed very little.
So if you want to eat healthier you can replace your oil fryer with an air fryer for most fried meals but don’t expect the exact same taste. For that reason, I wouldn’t throw away the oil fryer. Every once in a while, I still like oil fried chips and chicken.
Other than that, I can say that you can get nicely done meals with these devices. You do however need to spend a little bit of time with your device until you understand it’s ins and out because sometimes they will cook slower or faster than you see in recipe books.
At the end of the day you are still cooking and the better you are at cooking the better the end results. This machines just make life easier but they are not going to be your personal Gordon Ramsay.
Another thing some devices will do is they will get out the excess fat already in the food. Because in some devices the fan that circulates air directly above the food and the excess fat gets out from the food and drips in the bottom bellow the food.
