What is Air Fryer?
An air fryer is a kitchen appliance that cooks by circulating hot air around the food. A mechanical fan circulates the hot air around the food at high speed, cooking the food and producing a crispy layer.
By circulating air up to 200 Celsius, this appliance fries several foods like potato chips, chicken, fish or pastries and it uses less oil than traditional fryer.
Most air fryers come with adjustable temperature and timer knobs that allow for more precise cooking. Food is cooked in the cooking basket that sits atop a drip tray.
Various brands of air fryers claim to save as much as 80% cooking oil in comparison to traditional fryers.
