Chapter 3: Different Things an air fryer can do

The air fryer makes use of the same technology and causes the amino acids and sugar in the foods to react and develop a brown color.

The mechanism makes the food crispy on the outside, thereby giving it the feeling of a baked or fried food item.

The air fryer is capable of raising the air temperature up to 200 degree Celsius, which means it permeates through the food to cook it thoroughly.

Here are the different things you can do with an air fryer.

Grilling

It is extremely easy to grill in an air fryer and you only have to expend a little effort towards it. You don’t have to worry about constantly flipping the food, as all you have to do is add the food and wait. Once you reach the half way mark, you can give the fryer a gentle shake in order to re-adjust the food within it. You will have to use the grill attachment, as that will make it easy for you to move the food by using the handle attached to it. The shaking also helps with absorbing or draining the excess oil, thereby making the food healthier.

Frying

Now you don’t have to worry about deep-frying foods, as it is quite easy to use an air fryer to get the desired results. In fact, you don’t need any oil at all to fry the foods, as the fryer makes use of hot air to crisp up foods. All you have to do is add in a little oil to the ingredient mix, which the air fryer will use to both cook and crisp the food. You can, however, brush a little oil on top to make it a little crunchier if you like.

Roasting

This is the most used function of the air fryer. It will be extremely easy for you to roast your foods as the air fryer works very fast. All you have to do is prepare the vegetables or meats by cutting them into small pieces and then add them to the roasting attachment. You don’t have to worry about turning or moving them around, as the air fryer will do all the work for you. The air fryer takes 20% lesser time to roast your vegetables and meats, which makes it great for bachelors, and those in a hurry to cook their food.

Baking

Baking is made extremely easy with the air fryer. You don’t have to worry about not having a conventional oven, as the air fryer will work well for all your baking needs. It works on pretty much the same rules as an oven and you have to preheat it before baking. You can make cookies, biscuits, muffins, cupcakes etc. It only takes around 15 to 30 minutes and an entire batch will be ready. You have to use the special attachment that is provided for baking purposes. The results will be much better than what you might have with a microwave.

The meats that cook well in an air fryer include pork, chicken, beef and fish. The vegetables that roast well in an air fryer include pepper, kale, zucchini, cauliflower, asparagus and corn. Potatoes are the most commonly cooked vegetables in the air fryer.

You can simultaneously cook two or more foods at the same time, as your air fryer will come with a separator attachment. You can separate the meals using the separator and cook all at the same time.
