An air fryer is a kitchen appliance that works by using high speed hot air circulation. 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.
Most hot air fryers 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 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.
