“Air fryers are becoming very mainstream, and I am thrilled I have been a prophet of air frying for years. I have written my own book and helped Paula Deen convert some of her recipes to air fryer for her cookbook.”, said Chef Deb.
Chef Deb shared air fryer health benefits with Bloom Viewers:
- Healthier Cooking: One of the primary benefits of air fryers is that they allow you to cook food using significantly less oil compared to traditional deep-frying methods. Air fryers use hot air circulation to cook the food, resulting in a crispy exterior without the excessive oil. It can reduce overall fat content by up to 75%, making it a healthier option for those conscious of their dietary intake.
- Versatility: Air fryers aren’t limited to just frying; they can also bake, grill, and roast a wide range of foods. This versatility allows you to prepare various dishes using a single appliance, reducing the need for multiple kitchen tools. From crispy fries and chicken wings to roasted vegetables and even desserts, air fryers offer a convenient way to cook different types of meals.
- Time and Energy Efficiency: Air fryers generally cook food faster than conventional ovens or stovetops. The hot air circulating at high speeds helps food cook quickly and evenly. Additionally, air fryers typically preheat faster, reducing the overall cooking time for your meals. This time efficiency can be especially beneficial for busy individuals or those looking to prepare meals quickly. Moreover, air fryers are generally more energy-efficient than traditional ovens, helping save on electricity costs.
