Subtleties of Cooking in an Air Fryer

Anyone who hasn't tried cooking in an air fryer is a little skeptical. It is a new modern kitchen gadget that saves people a lot of time, cooks healthier and cleaner. So if you are wondering if it is worth the investment and what are the ins and outs of cooking in an air fryer, this article is for you.

Using an air fryer is very easy, even children can handle it. And the best thing is that cleaning is extremely easy. It's a great innovative way to eat healthy.

You can easily pull out the basket and see if your food is ready, then return it to finish cooking, if needed. Another good thing: you don't have to turn on your oven on hot summer days. Cooking time is significantly reduced.

There is no need to prepare the food in advance. You can put everything you need in the air fryer and enjoy your free time. Cooking in this appliance is much healthier, because your food needs almost no fat to become crispy and delicious.

Here are some ideas if you do decide to try cooking with an air fryer:

Cook deliciously

Cooking in an Air Fryer

You can make yourself a wonderful sandwich with the tastiest bacon without any fat. Cooking time will depend on the thickness of the bacon. However, if you fancy eating crispy bacon, you can easily cook it in just 10 minutes at 390°F (200°C). The best part is that the grease drains into the appliance bin, making cleaning much easier.

Cook recipes that are usually prepared in an oven

You can easily adapt oven recipes. You only need to lower the temperature at which you would normally cook the food in the oven. For example, if your recipe calls for cooking at 370°F (190°C) in a conventional oven, in an air fryer cooking is done at 350°F (175°C). In addition, the preparation time is reduced by 20%.

Spray the food

Once you've mastered your air fryer, you can move on to the next level. For example, halfway through cooking, you can take the food out and spray it lightly with fat.

Shake the basket
