Why You Should Get an Air Fryer
As a working, single mum I am always looking for easy, no-fuss cooking methods and appliances. An air fryer is just that. It is compact and easy to use. You can now fry your favorite food with less fat and use a lot less energy in doing so. Did you forget to defrost supper? No stress, with an air fryer you can cook your food from frozen. Clean-up is easy and all smells stay inside the air fryer.
What to Look for When Buying an Air Fryer
Everyone has different preferences on what is important or not when deciding on an Air Fryer, but I want to offer my opinion on the most important things that the Air Fryer should have.
Air Fryers come in different sizes from small to large. The smaller ones are typically about 1 liters to 2 liters while the medium ones are 1.8 liters to 2.5 liters. The larger ones can be up to 5 liters or more. For a family of about 4-5 people, an Air Fryer with about 2 liters will suffice. Make sure you buy one that is the right size for your family.
You want to have sufficient control over the temperature. Higher temperatures will cook food quicker but you still want to be able to control at what temperature and how quick you want to cook your food.
Safety always comes first. Make sure the Air Fryer is well insulated and has cool touch grips so you don’t burn your hands when taking your food out. Look for a machine that has non-slip feet and won’t move around while cooking. If you are easily distracted like me, ensure there is an automatic shut-off preventing your food from being overcooked.

Here are some commonly asked questions about Air Fryers.
Is air frying healthier than deep frying?
Yes, the air fryer’s purpose is to fry without all the oil you need for deep frying. You need a very small amount to cook crispy French fries, chicken, fish and more. The result is similar to oven fried food. Don’t expect something dripping in fat.
How do I clean my Air Fryer?
The basket and drawer are dishwasher safe for many models however make sure to read the cleaning instructions on the model you buy. Otherwise hand wash with soap and water. Make sure all parts are dry before putting them back into the machine.
Does it use up a lot of electricity?
An air fryer uses a lot less electricity than an oven and there is no preheating involved. If you switch from oven to air fryer, you should be saving on electricity.
So that concludes our list of some of the best air fryer machines on the market today. Hope this helps you with your decision and building a stronger life.
