Does air fried food taste good? absolutely it does! Let’s look at some things you can cook with the Air Fryer.
So, you’ve probably been hearing a lot about these “Air Fryers“, and you’re wondering, “does air fried food taste good?”.
I’ve cooked more food than you can imagine in my Air Fryers over the last couple of years. I can tell you from experience that Air Fried food tastes delicious. I love cooking restaurant style boneless wings for my friends and family. Better yet, they only have a fraction of the fat!
Fries also come out amazing in the Air Fryer! Just spin them in a teaspoon of oil and a little fresh cracked pepper and sea salt and you’ll love how they come out.
But it’s not just the taste that an Air Fryer can bring to the table. If you have a second, I’d love to tell you about what else the Air Fryer can do (and a couple things it can’t!)
Air Fried Food is Healthier than Deep Fried Food
hot air to cook your food. When a little oil is applied to your food, you will get a crispy outside layer while the inside stays juicy and tender.
Cooking with an Air Fryer is extremely simple and safe enough for your teenagers to use. You’ll be able to cook fried food right at home without worrying about burning down the house with a deep fryer!
Because the Air Fryer rapidly circulates hot air completely around your food, it cooks faster than it would in an oven. When cooking in an oven, the bottom of your food will cook faster because the pan is hotter than the rest of the air. This results in unevenly cooked food.
In the Air Fryer, all areas of your food are exposed to the same amount of heat throughout the cooking process. The result is perfect and evenly cooked food.
The Air Fryer Doesn’t Just Fry Food…
There are accessories available that will allow you to grill, bake and broil with your Air Fryer. I’ve baked cookies, cupcakes, and small pizzas in my Air Fryer…and guess what? They all turn out delicious.
With the grill accessory, you can grill burgers and chicken right in your Air Fryer. You can cover the grill with tin foil and broil fish!
Much Better Than A Microwave Does Air Fried Food Taste Good?
The Air Fryer does an awesome job of reheating leftovers, and quickly too! Who know’s what microwaves are doing to your food. All I know its that my food comes out mushy and unevenly cooked…gross.
In the Air Fryer, you can heat up your left overs quickly and your grub will retain the texture and taste just as well as when it was fresh. Forget about that microwave…I haven’t used mine in ages.
Air Fried Shortcomings…
Of course, the Air Fryer isn’t without any faults. Most Air Fryers are fairly compact. A 3-4 quart capacity Air Fryer can cook for up to 3 people at one time. There are Air Fryers like the Philips Air Fryer XL that cook for up to 5 people.
Also, Air Fryers do not do wet battered foods well at all. This includes beer batters and tempura batter. The good news is that you can find frozen pre battered foods that will cook up deliciously in the Air Fryer!
