What kind of product is the air fryer? No oil? Pure air explosion? Can you restore the delicious fried food?
Working principle of air fryer
The air fryer uses air to replace the hot oil in the original frying pan and uses convection heating similar to the solar hot air to form a rapidly circulating heat flow in the closed pot to make the food cooked; At the same time, the hot air also blows away the water on the surface of the food, so that the ingredients can achieve the effect of approximate frying without boiling oil.
Compared with ordinary frying, the food cooked in "air fryer" does have a lower fat content, but in fact, there is still a lot of oil in the cooking process, "oil-free frying" is impossible.
The air fryer is essentially a small oven. Now some ovens have also launched "air baking", which is like the natural baking of the solar wind with high-speed hot air convection. The principle of both is similar. They will take away the water on the food surface and simulate the taste of frying.
Advantages of air fryer:
The capacity of air fryer is relatively small, which is suitable for small families; The capacity of the intelligent oven is relatively large, which can make more food at one time and save time and power. If you want to roast a whole chicken, I think the air fryer will be dead, and the oven can be roasted with a fork, which is more convenient. However, the air fryer is small in size, does not occupy space, and is more convenient to move. The air fryer does not need to be preheated, and the oven needs to be preheated in advance. Some people may find preheating very troublesome.
Disadvantages of air fryer:
The price is expensive. Generally speaking, the price of air fryer is slightly higher than that of two ovens. But for the sake of health, it is still the ability of most people. Small internal cooking space and limited choice of dishes are both advantages and disadvantages. The small limitation of the cabinet makes it can only make dishes for 2-4 people.
The food tastes slightly less, because the hot air takes away the moisture of the food itself during the process of the air fryer, so the taste is a little dry. In addition, excessive intake of dehydrated food can also affect our health and lead to coarse skin pores
