An Air fryer is a compact countertop kitchen appliance that works on the principle of heat convection. It uses rapid air technology to circulate warm air throughout its chamber to make delicious food. This machine uses no or very little oil to produce crispier and crunchier food items. It promotes a healthy lifestyle and allows people to cook their favorite Air Fryer breakfast foods without worrying about oil or high-calorie intake.
This appliance uses the 'Malliard Effect’ where amino acids work in reducing sugars to create a crispy effect on the outside along with slushy and soft insides. In simple terms, it uses hot air circulation to bake the foods instead of frying them. Read on to know about some unexpected things that you can cook using air fryers.
