This is an Air Fryer Oven
I have read about these, and been wanting one for awhile now.
This week I decided to jump onto the Air Fryer Oven train, so I will be testing, writing, and posting
new recipes to use with an Air Fryer Oven.
I usually wait a little bit to buy new things, let them get the kinks out of the first editions and then buy one, and read up on models and makes.
What is an Air Fryer? Wikipedia:An air fryer is a kitchen appliance that cooks by circulating hot air around the food using the convection mechanism. A mechanical fancirculates the hot air around the food at high speed, cooking the food and producing a crispy layer via the Maillard effect.
Traditional frying methods induce the Maillard effect by completely submerging foods in hot oil. The air fryer works by coating the desired food in a thin layer of oil while circulating air heated up to 200 °C (392 °F) to apply heat and initiate the reaction. By doing this, the appliance is able to fry foods like potato chips, chicken, fish, steak, cheeseburgers, french fries or pastries using 70% to 80% less oil than a traditional deep-fryer.
Most air fryers have temperature and timer adjustments that allow more precise cooking. Food is cooked in a cooking basket that sits atop a drip tray. The basket and its contents must be periodically shaken to ensure even oil coverage. Some models accomplish this by incorporating a food agitator that continuously churns the food during the cooking process, while others require the user to perform the task manually.
Air fryers are attractive for their convenience, safety, and health benefits. A chip pan for example, with its traditionally open top, can easily allow hot droplets of cooking oil to escape or splash out on the user, which is not possible with an air fryer. Traditionally deep fried foods are much higher in caloric content due to oil absorption during their preparation. It is generally agreed that the taste and consistency of foods cooked by traditional fried and air fried techniques are not identical.
