When you first buy an air fryer, these are a few foods you can try out first: french fries, bagels, Brussels, nuggets, or any frozen food. All these food, aka snacks, are easy to make and won’t take much of your time.
What Is An Air Fryer?
An air fryer, like an oven, bakes and roasts; however, its heating elements are only on the top and are accompanied by a large, powerful fan, resulting in super crispy food in no time — and, more significantly, with less oil than deep-fried counterparts.
Because of the combination of a concentrated heat source and the length and placement of the fan, air fryers typically heat up quickly and cook food quickly and evenly.
Another advantage of air frying is the ease of cleanup. Most air fryer baskets and racks can be washed in the dishwasher.
How does an Air Fryer function?
Food is placed in a perforated basket in an air fryer, and the machine cooks it by blowing hot air around it.
The air force causes a convection effect, which cooks and browns the food in the basket. Breaded foods, such as frozen chicken tenders, or unbreaded starchy foods, such as french fries or tater tots, will turn brown if the air temperature rises above 320 degrees Fahrenheit.
Which Dishes Should You Prepare In Your New Air Fryer?
