10 amazing facts about air fryers for first timers

1. They come in a range of sizes and prices

If you decide to purchase an air fryer, think about the size you will need for your family. The smallest ones come at 1.2 litres and the largest are 6 litres. They also have varying costs, between $50 and $500. If you are unsure about which fryer to buy, it might be worth opting for a cheaper model from Kmart, Big W or Woolworths to test it out first. You may find you use the air fryer more than you anticipated and want to upgrade for a more expensive or bigger model.

2. They come with different timers

Most regular air fryers come with a 30-minute range timer. However, you can also purchase air fryers with a 60-minute timer for more complicated recipes.

3. Air fryers heat up food very quickly

Hot air of up to 200 degrees Celsius is circulated around your food in the air fryer. The heating elements are located on the top of the air fryer, and like an oven, there’s a powerful fan inside the machine. This means, whatever you put in the fryer can come out very crispy in no time at all.

4. You can make so much more than just hot chips

You can make practically anything you would normally fry or put in an oven in a deep fat fryer. Air fryers are great for chips, yes, but you can also heat frozen foods, cook meat and veggies – and even make some delicious desserts.

5. They’re healthier than a deep fat fryer

Both of these kitchen gadgets cook food quickly, whereas an air fryer requires very little oil and a deep fryer tends to use a lot of oil. An air fryer can also bake, roast and grill. You can also purchase a heap of different accessories such as baking pans, grill rack and parchment liners, as well as many others.

6. You don’t need much oil

Like we mentioned above, you need little to no oil on your food in the air fryer. Olive oil may cause your fryer to smoke, so it’s best to use vegetable oil, peanut oil and canola oil.

7. They’re easy to clean

Most baskets and racks inside the air fryer are dishwasher safe and you can easily pull apart smaller pieces to clean! The best thing about this gadget is, they are much less messy than other appliances.

8. You’ll need to be present when using an air fryer

Unlike slow cookers, which you can put on and forget about for hours on end, you can’t stay too far away from the air fryer while you’re using it. You will often need to remove the basket and shuffle the food around to ensure your meal is browning evenly.

9.It preheats quickly!

You don’t need to wait for your air fryer to warm up, these appliances will get hot quickly. If the air fryer doesn’t have a pre-heat function, simply set to the temperature you need and let it run for three minutes.

10. They’re environmentally friendly

Air fryers use less power than most electric ovens, which is a great thing if you want to save money but also reduce your carbon emissions.
