Are you Looking at Buying an Airfryer?
Here are the 5 points that you need to consider.
But first, let us look at what an air fryer is. The simple answer is that an air fryer is a small to medium-sized kitchen appliance that can sit on your kitchen countertop. Their sizes range from the size of your average electric kettle to a microwave.
An Airfryer uses hot air to cook your food. Hot air is distributed from the heat source, like an element, through the air fryer basket to cook your food using the hot air flow. The more flow of hot air, the better the cooking process.
So what do you need to look for when buying an air fryer?
1. What is the size of your family?
If you cook for a family of 2 to 3 people every day, a smaller air fryer should be sufficient. But the moment you are for more than 4 people, you will need to consider a larger air fryer that can accommodate more than one layer of food. Luckily, you do have options.
2. Size of your kitchen.
Do you have limited kitchen space? Well, air frying actually brings some good news. They are compact and will also, most probably, replace your microwave. If you do not have enough kitchen space, you probably need to make sure that you have a spot for it on your counter. You are going to use your air fryer frequently, just because of its effectiveness and efficiency, so you wouldn’t want to pack it away in a cupboard after each use.
3. Are you tech-savvy?
A lot of air fryers come with a lot of buttons on their interface. Sometimes a microwave can be intimidating with all of its options, but if you enjoy your technology and cellphone app integrations, you will have no issue. Fortunately, there are a lot of first-time-use videos that can get you comfortable with your appliance after a couple of minutes. If technology is not your strong point, look for an air fryer that is easy to use and not too complicated.
Airfryers can be very expensive and not necessarily as reliable or enduring as marketed. Marketing is not the only thing that one should rely on. Find a brand that suits your budget and read up on what other people say about the one that you’re considering purchasing.
Reviews are your friend! As mentioned above, reading up on the product you are considering is important. Customer reviews can tell you a lot before you purchase. There, you can also find what is important to you. If you need an air fryer that is easy to clean, look for reviews on this point. People will tell you all you need to know.
