What is an air fryer and how does it work?
An air fryer is a countertop cooking appliance that circulates hot air to fry foods that would normally require oil, such as fries, dumplings, hash browns and even roast meats. It does this using a combination of heating elements and a fan to blow hot air around a cooking chamber or pot, to cook ingredients evenly without oil or grease.
Do I need to use oil with an air fryer?
The premise of air fryers and the reason they’re so popular (besides their convenience) is that they don’t require any oil for cooking, making it a much healthier alternative to deep fryers. However, some recipes may require you to add a drop of oil depending on the desired result.
How much does an air fryer typically cost?
Air fryers range in price, typically starting from $40 and reaching upwards of $400 for top-of-the-range models. Our latest survey found that Aussies typically spend on average $156 on an air fryer, so use this figure as a ballpark when shopping around. Aside from the price, you’ll also want to consider capacity, features and functions, design and of course cooking performance. Find out more in our air fryers guide below.
