Air frying is the newest and most innovative way of cooking. Imagine, one machine can do your frying, sauteeing, roasting and grilling! Who needs a stove or an oven anymore? What’s more is that this machine is very easy to travel with, as it isn’t too large in size. It also doesn’t take a lot of electric power, so it won’t cause a power outage for your home. There are plenty of air frying machines out there, and you should do your research before investing. Here are a few benefits that you can get from cooking with air-frying.

Air-frying still needs oil, however, it only requires a maximum of one teaspoon of oil. Even for deep-frying! Going on a less-oil diet is beneficial in many ways. It lessens our daily intake of unsaturated fat, which is the type of fat that is bad for your body.

It also minimizes your consumption of cholesterol, which is the main reason for people to have heart diseases when they age. Using too much oil in cooking also strips food from its nutrients. Basically, if you’re eating a vegetable deep fried in oil, it won’t offer you any of the good benefits it once had when it was raw. Air-frying vegetables and fruits are proven to be just as delicious as if you deep-fry them.

No Mess

You’ve experienced using a shield when deep-frying food because of the hot splatter of oil going everywhere. You won’t experience that with air-frying, as the machine is closed with a lid and you are protected from any type of splatter. You don’t have to deal with wiping oil off your stove or your kitchen floors, too! Air-frying is guaranteed to keep your kitchen squeaky clean during the cooking process. We can’t say the same for the preparation process, though.

If you know how efficient it is to heat things in a microwave instead of over the stove using the pan, this is the same thing. You only need to drop whatever you want to fry, grill, roast, or bake in the air-fryer. Then, you set the temperature required and the time needed for it to cook. Close the lid, and all you need to do is wait for the beep! It usually takes around 20 to 30 minutes for meat, and less for any other type of ingredient. You can even pause the machine to open the lid and flip whatever you’re cooking to get an even distribution!
