If you’re looking for a new range or small appliance, you’ve probably heard about Air Fry cooking. It seems like everywhere you look, people are talking about the new Air Fry Ranges, in fact, you’ve probably had to bluff your way through a conversation or two — I know I have!

But you don’t have to fake it anymore. With this helpful blog, you’ll be the life of every party as an expert on air frying. It will also help inform your buying decision, if that’s more your thing.

So, let’s get started.

What Exactly is Air Fry Cooking?

 Air fry is a method of convection cooking that cooks your food by evenly circulating hot air within the oven. As the fan circulated air surrounds your food; the heat cooks faster, and more evenly. And like deep frying you get food that’s juicy on the inside, crispy brown on the outside, and oh-so-delicious.

Why Should I Air Fry?

 To start, air frying doesn’t use heavy oils or trans fats which makes it a much healthier choice than deep frying. In fact many foods are juicy enough that you don’t need to add any additional oil at all. For dishes such as lean meats or veggies, you can add a dash of olive oil to get that perfect air fry result. 

And that’s not even the best part. Air frying may also reduce harmful carcinogens that can be found in deep fried foods. With less fat, less calories, and less long-term risk to your families’ health not only can you eat your favourite “fast foods” guilt-free, but you’ll have no problem convincing even the pickiest eaters to finish their dinners.

How Do I Air Fry At Home?

 With an air frying oven Air Fry cooking is as easy as 1, 2, 3, 4.

  1. Preheat your oven to the recommended temperature as outlined in your recipe. Different types of foods require different temperatures and cooking times, anywhere from 170 degrees to 550 degrees Fahrenheit, so always be sure to check.
  2. Arrange your food evenly on either a dark baking tray with low sides, or a specialty air fry rack, essentially a wire basket or tray that allows for full air circulation. Allowing the heated air to touch every part of the food is the key to perfect air frying.
  3. Place your food on a single rack in the middle of your oven. Keeping the oven as empty as possible will help the air to circulate. Cook as desired.
  4. Dig in to the air fried goodness!
