What is an airfryer?

An airfryer is a fryer that works with hot air. You need a little bit of oil, so you can fry healthier, with a crispy result.

An airfryer heats air up to a temperature of about 200 ° C. The hot air constantly circulates through the pan. So cook your dishes evenly and all around. This makes fries on all sides equally cooked and creates a crispy crust. Depending on the dish you make, you set the temperature and baking time via the control panel. With some airfryers you easily choose a specific baking program, for example for grilling chicken. These options vary by brand and type of airfryer.

The main advantage is that you do not need frying oil or frying fat for preparing snacks. That makes fries and croquettes from an airfryer less fat and therefore healthier. In addition to frying snacks, you also grill chicken legs or vegetables and even bake muffins. The yarn with hot air goes fast and during baking you do not suffer from frying fumes. An airfryer is safe to use because no deep-frying spatters can jump out of the pan. Without caked frying fat, the removable inner pan is easy to clean.
