How to Pick the Right Air Fryer for Gifting
Why an Air Fryer?
Designed to sit on the kitchen countertop, air fryers make crispy meals and snacks without using extra oil. They are popular among cooks because they can be used to create a wide variety of delicious foods. A few examples? Golden, air-fried French fries, crab cakes, melt-in-your-mouth grilled cheese sandwiches, glazed lemon garlic salmon and chewy-in-the-middle, crunchy-on-the-outside chocolate chip cookies. Home-cooked air-fried chicken and air-fried pickles are other very popular recipes.
Cooking without oil has many advantages. Without the addition of extra oil, calorie consumption is drastically reduced, producing healthier food. Plus, cleanup is easier without hot oil splattering all over cooking surfaces. Prepping and cooking with an air fryer is quicker, too, especially when compared to conventional gas and electric ovens and grills.
How Air Fryers Work Without Oil
The air fryer is a conventional oven, oil-free fryer, grill and broiler all-in-one. The technology behind air fryers is relatively simple. The device directs hot air from top to bottom, evenly circulating it in all directions around fresh or frozen food. In just minutes, food is thoroughly cooked, with a brown and crunchy surface on all sides. Every dish can be a success. No preheating, no extra oil, no hot oil spills or burn accidents.
