4L Air Fryer FAQs
Generally speaking, food cooked in an air fryer is healthier when compared to traditional oil frying methods. Air frying your food cuts the number of calories and fats you consume; however, eating too much fried food – even food cooked in an air fryer – is not healthy.
Air fryers heat up deliciously crispy foods using a convection mechanism. Inside, it contains a heating element that transmits heat to the food drawer and a strong fan that works to circulate the air around the food, ensuring even cooking. When you’re ready to cook, you place the food in the enclosed cooking chamber – it may seem compact, but it was actually designed this way to speed up the cooking process. Then you simply key in your preferred cooking settings (which will depend on the food you’re cooking), hit the start button, and the air fryer begins to cook your delicacy.
When it comes to choosing an air fryer, the size you buy should be based on the number of people you’ll be cooking for. Smaller air fryers that are 1.2 litres are ideal for 1-2 people, whereas the 3-4 litre air fryers work best for 2-3 people. If you’re going to be cooking for say, 4-6 people, then you’ll need one of the larger air fryers, so 6 litres or more.
