We are all trying to eat a more healthy diet these days. Aren't we? Well I've seen the adverts on the TV for air fryers and thought it would be a good idea to see what all the fuss is about. Wow! I didn't realise what I'd let myself in for. There are so many my head was nipping after a short while.
These machines are so versatile they really are a mini-kitchen in their own right. Great idea for compact living or as an add-on for your main cooking facilities. Reckon they're worth every dollar they cost.
The five that I have chosen (after much deliberation) are all rated at least 4 out of 5 stars as always. Not one of the chosen five have fewer than a thousand ratings, (one reaching over four and a half thousand).
Each machine has a different set of shelving options to give you a variety of choices. The one you choose will depend on the use you have in mind and what suits your family best.
Choose temperatures between 105 and 400 degrees Fahrenheit. High heat for foods like french fries and lower heat to dehydrate your favorite foods. (You need to pre heat your unit for 3 minutes for best results).
This is a much more healthy way to make home made french fries and without the smells of cooking with lots of oil.
Do you like to eat dried fruits such as apple or banana chips as a snack? The problem, especially in a family, is the cost. They are so expensive. Well the rack allows you to make make your own. This way you know what has gone into making your family's healthy snack and it will work out much cheaper.
Some parts are dishwasher safe such as the basket, crisper plate and multi layer rack. This means that even cleaning up after cooking will be easy.
A 12 inch pizza will fit into the oven or a 4 pound chicken. Toast 6 slices of bread at a time or air fry 3 lbs of chicken wings. Mmmm! I'm getting hungry at the thought of it.
It comes with 7 preset programs and an auto shutoff timer.
This machine comes with an oven rack, baking pan and an air fryer rack/basket. So you have everything you need to cook a wide variety of meals.
Sit it on your table top, plug in and you're ready to go.
There is an alarm to remind you to shake your fries etc.
There are 8 preset options but you don't have to use them. Use on the manual setting and no matter what you want to cook this tabletop machine can handle it.
There is a recipe book included with this machine to help you produce the perfect meals.
Some satisfied customers no longer use their big oven in preference to this one.
Being at table top height means that those who have mobility or balance issues don't have to bend down to use it.
The term air fryer does not do this machine justice as it does so much more than that.
Along with air frying this large machine has six more functions including rotisserie, roast, broil, bake, reheat and dehydrate.
The touch screen is so easy to use and with seven smart preset programs you can't really go wrong. You will be having meals cooked to perfection in no time.
Imagine fries that are crispy on the outside yet soft and fluffy on the inside cooked evenly in the rotisserie basket.
Or perhaps you fancy yourself the next winner of "The American Baking Competition" with cakes baked to perfection?
Well you wouldn't get to use one of these in a competition but you could pretend and who wants to fo on the TV anyway? Far better to enjoy the fruits of your labor in the comfort of your own home.
Don't worry if you have a tendency to forget that you're cooking and things get a little overdone. This unit has a 60 minute timer with auto shut off to help you with your busy life.
These tools are all dishwasher safe which is a must for modern day families.
The 8 preset options take you from 90 to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. So roasting, baking, frying or dehydrating foods will be easy.
Using little or no oil your meals will be healthy and very tasty. The manufacturers say you will use at least 98% less oil than traditional fryers. Not only will you be more healthy but your kitchen will not smell of oil for days. Result! I hate when cooking smells linger.
This product is also BPA free. BPA is a synthetic chemical often found in hard plastics. It mimics oestrogen and other hormones which some cancers feed off. BPA does not cause cancer but we are better off without it.
