Welcome to AirFryerEats.com! I am Cindy Gordon, and I will be your air fryer host! I am so glad that you have stopped by my site! Maybe you got an air fryer for Christmas? Or perhaps you bought an air fryer for yourself? Either way, I am so glad you are here!
This site is a sister site to VegetarianMamma.com We started air fryer recipes on that site and our readers asked for meat recipes. We heard the requests and that is how AirFryerEats.com was born!
How does an air fryer work?
While the air fryer may seem to be a magical countertop appliance (Frying without oil? Amazing!), it’s actually a pretty straightforward cooking machine. What you have in an air fryer is really just a smaller version of a convection oven.
What is Convection?
Convection, if you remember your high school chemistry lessons, is the transfer of heat by movement. When it comes to cooking, that heat is typically transferred by the movement of air. If you have a convection oven, there is a fan at the back of it that will move heat around in a circular fashion. This makes food cook more quickly and often more evenly.
Do Air Fryers Work Without Oil?
Yes and No. While technically, you can fry food in your air fryer with zero added fat, most manufacturers and cooks will tell you to add just a little bit to get the best results. The fat circulating around your food in a fine mist is what gives air fryer foods that perfect crispiness.
How do you clean an air fryer?
