The oil free air fryers make fried food irresistible, where as in old deep fry gadgets the amount of oil used was always a concern. Fortunately, we have air fryers now which are simple to clean and achieve identical crispiness.

I always prefer healthier appliances for my home in my quest for a healthy family. It is also beneficial to seniors, as oil consumption must be reduced as they age.

Isn't it great that now we can eat delicious fried food with less oil, calories, and cholesterol? Oil-free air fryers provide this option, and they're becoming increasingly popular. The market is exploding now. It's a cutting-edge kitchen gadget that allows users to cook a variety of healthy meals.

What if you could find a low-cost air fryer that performs as well as the best air fryers in terms of their primary feature, oil-free frying? That would imply spending less on an appliance of comparable cost and efficiency. Without breaking the budget, you might consume nutritious air-fried snacks.

We have also noted the market has moved from stand alone air fryers to much more complex and multi task machines. Where as earlier air fryers had very limited capacity so much so that one had to cook for only one or two persons at a time now you can cook for the whole gathering in one go. We now have eight, ten or even 12 functions in a single machine.

In this article we have mainly focused on these machines. The air fryers in which you can roast a full 5 lb chicken or make 3 packets of french fries. The air fryers which need no pre heating even. Accessories like rotisserie baskets to ensure that not only the hot air reaches the dish from all sides the dish itself rotates in the rotisserie resulting in amazing similar golden colour on all wafers.

New Oil Free Air Fryers

And then there newer products are being launched every day which have various other functionalities in addition to air frying.

Since Philips invented the air fryer, I've learned a variety of recipes that I can prepare quickly and eat hot and fresh whenever I'm hungry. These are the words of a person who has never cooked before.

One of my favourite snacks to eat while watching Netflix is Air Fryer Popcorn. Popcorn retains its natural flavour and a perfect golden colour with so little oil.

Air Fryer Mushrooms– The air fryer is ideal for frying whole mushrooms. They're golden brown, softened, and full of juicy flavour when they're finished. My mushrooms should be browned but not dry. Cooking them whole for 10 minutes in the air fryer works well.

Air Fryer Okra- Serve air fryer okra as a last-minute appetiser at your next gathering. Without using any grease, this okra is fried to perfection in an air fryer. It's crispy and juicy. 

Air Fryer Carrots-If you want to reduce the amount of grease in your diet, air fryer carrots are a great choice. Carrots cooked in the air fryer are a tasty and nutritious side dish. To cook uniformly, they don't need much oil.

Air Fryer Whole Chicken – The flavour of a whole chicken fried in the air fryer is crispy on the outside and juicy and moist on the inside. Place the entire chicken in the air fryer basket after spraying it with oil. Many air fryer buckets will hold a whole chicken, so there's no need to break it up.

An air fryer is a great cooking appliance for anyone who is on a diet. It offers multiple benefits over a traditional fryer. Health conscious people are more interested in air fryers.

You can cook a wide variety of foods and save money and time as they use 70% less oil than a traditional fryer.
