Chefs around the world prefer air fryers for cooking several kinds of foods – and that’s for a reason obviously. An air fryer is the obvious and ultimate choice when it comes to cooking food in a limited time and seamlessly.
Like a conventional and average oven mostly used at homes and restaurants, an air fryer blows hot air over your food to cook it. This process results in the production of a chemical reaction Maillard between sugars and amino acids.
Moreover, a deep fryer also gets a similar reaction with hot oil. However, deep fryers are considered bad for health as you have to put a little more oil into deep fryers to cook the food. Whereas, in an air fryer there is no need to flood it with oil. Air fryers usually take little oil to achieve a similar browned goodness ultimately.
