Fry smarter, not harder!

If you are completely new to air fryers but you are thinking of getting one in the near future, then start here by learning how to choose an air fryer.

Using an air fryer is better than traditional deep frying or using a regular oven in many ways. There are several benefits to using an air fryer compared to other appliances.

Regarding deep frying, an air fryer barely uses any oil, and if you do use some oil, you can use the best oils that will be much healthier.

Compared to conventional ovens, it is much faster to use an air fryer. An air fryer preheats in just about 3 minutes and the cooking times are lower too. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that it uses half the electricity.

But the problem is that air fryers have become so popular that there are a myriad of different air fryers on the market. 25 million air fryers were sold in the US in the last two years so its not a surprise. (Source: NDP)

With the soaring popularity of air fryers, an increasing number of brands are vying for a piece of the action by introducing a multitude of options to choose from. Making the decision on which air fryer to purchase can be a daunting task, given the plethora of choices available.

This is where Fryer Consumer can help you out, so you can make a better decision when you buy your new air fryer.

For example, there are air fryers that have a grilling option. Or an air fryer that has two baskets so you can cook a main meal and a side dish at the same time.

It is also very important to get the right size air fryer. Air fryer baskets are measured in quarts. So a 3 quart air fryer and a 10 quart air fryer will be totally different.

There are also so many functions an air fryer can have. For example, if you want to dry fruits in them, then you should get an air fryer with a dehydrator function.

But there are air fryers that can cook a Rotisserie chicken for you.

Also, there are a few precautionary steps before you use your air fryer. Like where to put them in the kitchen. Or if you can add water to it. And many more.

Oh gosh, and we haven’t even talked about the recipes. The internet has thousands of recipes that can be easily cooked with an air fryer. We also continuously share delicious air fryer recipes. Let it be a Chile Relleno or a Karaage, an air fryer can help you out.

We also review our favorite brands, like Crux air fryers or Kalorik air fryers. Or compare air fryers head to head (for example, in this article) to see how they perform next to each other.
