How does an air fryer work?

You must’ve asked yourself if you’re thinking about buying an air fryer. Maybe you even ask yourself what is an air fryer? Well, we’re here to explain in a very short and concise manner what is an air fryer, how does it work and, how to use an air fryer.

So how does it work?

Very simply put, an air fryer works by circulating hot air around the food. There is a heating unit under the cooking chamber that heats everything up, then a mechanical fan circulates the hot air around, cooking the food evenly and producing a crispy layer.

It is a lot like your conventional oven that uses a heating unit and a fan to spread the heat around, but with an air fryer, you get a much quicker and swirly circulation as if the food is submerged in hot air. That causes the crispy layer and that’s why an air fryer is a substitute for deep frying. You’re deep airing. Bad joke.

So what is an air fryer? It’s exactly that, a substitute for deep frying. You can use a very thin layer of oil on your food and then the hot air does the rest and creates that crispiness you love. Which brings us to the next subject.

How to use an air fryer?

Now that you know how air fryer works it’s quite simple to use it. First of all you need to have enough space for the air to flow, so don’t stuff your air fryer. Maybe the food will be cooked but there will be no crispiness.

Second, you need a thin layer of oil, so use a spray or brush to give it a little shine. That will promote better heating, better flavour and yet again that lovely crispiness.

Third, you move it around. Some parts of the food will touch each other while some will be up against the chamber wall or floor, so make sure to move your food around every 5 minutes to get the best results!
