Who doesn’t love french fries and other fried goodies, but is a bit concerned about the high fat and calories?
AirFryers to the rescue!
AirFryers have become one of the most popular new kitchen gadgets because they help cook your favorite fried foods but with lower fat content and less calories.
Instead of submersing your food in a vat of oil, an AirFryer uses just a small amount of oil and circulates hot air around the food to give it that same unique crunchy golden fried texture we all love but with a fraction of the fat and calories compared to traditional deep frying.
Here are some examples of the calories in a traditional deep fryer versus a modern AirFryer.
- Fried Chicken = 3038 Calories Vs 1830 Calories
- Fish & Chips = 1087 Calories Vs 600 Calories
- Scampi & Chips = 975 Calories Vs 424 Calories
- French Fries = 687 Calories Vs 267 Calories
- Onion Rings = 411 Calories Vs 176 Calories
- Chicken Nuggets = 305 Calories Vs 180 Calories
The only downside is that an AirFryer takes a bit longer to cook your favorite foods compared to deep frying, but we think the health benefits are well worth the few extra minutes!
Most modern AirFryers come loaded with helpful features like digital temperature control, pre-set cooking times for various types of food and non-stick coatings for easy cleaning. Some are even able to be used with voice control, and download recipes directly from the internet!
