Air fryer

An air fryer is a kitchen appliance that works by using high speed hot air circulation.[1] When the fryer is working, it begins to produce hot air and a mechanical fan begins to circulate it very fast around the food, which fries the food and produces a crispy layer.

By circulating air up to 200 Celsius degrees,[2] this appliance fries several foods like potato chips, chicken, fish or pastries and it uses less oil than traditional fryer.

Most hot air fryers[3] come with adjustable temperature and timer knobs that allow for more precise cooking. Food is cooked in the cooking basket that sits on a drip tray. However, one particular brand, the Tefal Actifry, has a fixed non-adjustable temperature of 338 degrees Fahrenheit and food is cooked using a non-stick bowl and paddle.

There are various brands of air fryers that claims to fry the food with 80% less oil[4] in general. Air fryer technology is based on "Rapid air technology" that uses the hot air to fry and cook the food which causes the use of less oil frying food.
