Nutritionists and dieticians dole out a ton of advice on how to eat clean and healthy, but nothing can replace the comfort that most of us feel when indulging in a plateful of deep fried food. Well, we have figured out a better option to savour such food items in a ‘healthy’ way- the ‘Air Fryer Way’.
A smart magical device that pops out fried food using air instead of oil, reducing the fat content and calories that contribute to high cholesterol, the Air Fryer is an innovative kitchen appliance for fried food lovers. Without sacrificing on the taste of the food prepared with as much as eighty percent less fat, it is one of the best devices for people who are health conscious or trying to shed some extra kilos.
When it comes to deep-fried, greasy food like French fries and fried chicken fingers, Air fryers do not require the extra calories that submerging such food in oil can add. It rather uses air to prepare the same food that has the same crispy outside without unhealthy additives, whilst maintaining the taste and texture.
An extremely efficient device that can dramatically cut the cooking time, it can be used by anyone who desires a sumptuous platter of fried food, with more convenience than traditional cooking methods like a pan filled with hot oil to produce food with a fried consistency. They are even faster than ovens and on par with deep fryers as it takes only about three minutes to heat up, which is way quicker than setting an oven to preheat.
An air fryer combines many different cooking methods in a single appliance that makes cooking quite convenient. Embedded within the device, is an electric coil suspended above the food that provides radiant heating which passes through the food and warms it internally. For convection heating, a fan is positioned right above the coil which creates a current of heated air that flows around and under the food. The small amount of oil (if used any) coats the food via the convection method and as the hot air flows, the food’s own moisture creates the steam that finishes the cooking process.
We tried the Pringle AirFryer (AF 1401) with Air frying Technology that gives you perfect results – great tasting food without the oil. The machine has a maximum capacity of 2.5 Ltr with a 60 min timer. Its generous 220-240V (50/60Hz) (1400W) of power allows it to cook food super fast with great quality.
Serving a multitude of purposes in the kitchen, from creating an oil-less version of fried foods to grilling, steaming vegetables to baking cupcakes and brownies, the Pringle Air Fryer occupies less space and can be easily placed on compact kitchen counter tops. One doesn’t need to worry about splattering oil, grease fires, burning, or food sticking to it.
Priced affordably at INR 8830, this smart appliance enables one to relish healthier homemade food in the comfort of their homes and is safer and more convenient to use than conventional fryers.
