Are You Health-Conscious Eater Looking to Reduce or Add Flavorful Foods to Your Diet? An Airfryer May Be the Answer

Air fryers are mini counter top convection ovens equipped with heating elements and fans that circulate hot air around food, using significantly less oil than traditional fryers while simultaneously offering faster cooking times with crispier textures than most ovens (2).

Most models of countertop microwave ovens feature perforated baskets, wire racks or ceramic plates with holes that allow hot air to circulate at high temperatures around food at high temperatures. Programming allows users to turn them on or off at specific times; making it perfect for reheating or pre-preparing meals and snacks at the right times (3). Some even feature preset programs with popular dishes already included that make home chefs’ lives simpler (3).

To use an air fryer, place your food into the basket and set the timer accordingly. Many units come equipped with digital displays or touchscreen controls that let you manage temperature and timing settings; others use analog dials. You should also consider purchasing one that features an auto-shut off function to avoid overcooking or burning of your meals by accident.

Cosori’s 3.7 qt Digital Air Fryer is one of our recommended air fryers for beginners, providing both sleek design and ample capacity to meet most recipes. Additionally, this model comes in various colors and finishes that add style and charm to any kitchen. Before using your air fryer for the first time it’s recommended reading through its instruction manual as temperature and timing settings may differ depending on manufacturer/model.

Airfryers excel at quickly crisping foods quickly with minimal oil use. This feature makes the airfryer the ideal appliance for foods that tend to stick, such as frozen mozzarella sticks and tater tots, chicken nuggets, fries or fried fish – as well as crispy roasted vegetables like carrots, sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts. In addition, airfryers also work well at high-heat cooking such as proteins such as chicken steak or firm vegetables like zucchini or cauliflower that require higher heat settings.
