It goes without saying that what we eat and how it is prepared plays a role in our health.
This is why an air fryer could be one of the best appliances that you purchase. It ranges from R1,000 to R3,000.
How does an air fryer work?
An air fryer uses hot circulating air to cook food.
When you place food in the basket, the hot air circulates and the rapid circulation cooks the food and makes it crisp like it is fried.
Benefits of an air fryer
An air fryer is recommended by health experts because of a number of reasons.
Let’s look at some of them.
Cut down on fat and calories
The number one health benefit of an air fryer is that it doesn’t require much oil to fry your food.
Most recipes will require that you put 1-2 tablespoons.
This means you will reduce the number of calories on your food items. This is a great benefit for anyone wanting to cut down on their fat and calories intake.
Air fryer will give you crispy foods. However, it is important that you heat up the air fryer to ensure that the temperature and air flow will be at at the right levels.
You can bake using the air fryer. The good thing is that it won’t heat up your house like an oven would.
Tip: Invest in a good air fryer to avoid the non-stick coating peeling off within a few months.
Another tip is not to fill your basket to the full.
