Benefits Of Air Fryer Appliances Includes More Than Calorie-Slashing Preparation

If you like to cook, then you already know that variety is the spice of life and that’s especially so in the kitchen. It’s through the use of different ingredients from every corner of the world – or trying out new recipes for special occasions – that you’ve realized that cooking is both fun and rewarding. However, there are only so many ways to prepare a dinner: Roast it, boil it, grill it, bake it or fry it. The problem with the latter two options is the often liberal doses of oil used during the cooking process. When baking, you don’t want the prolonged exposure to heat to cause the food to stick the pan so you use oil to coat it. When frying, oil is the primary ingredient right behind the main course. This is an inherently unhealthy way of preparing a meal and regular consumption of foods that are cooked with fatty oils can lead to health concerns later on down the road.

For the aspiring home chef who wants to bring something new to the table while simultaneously serving healthier dishes, then the air fryer appliance is likely exactly what you’re looking for. Overall, an air fryer will both bake and fry dishes. This is through its innovative way of cooking: Rapidly circulating air that reaches temperatures of 400 degrees. Through this process, your foods will be crisp and brown as if they were deep-fried, but you don’t need to use any oil during the process. Additional benefits of using an air fryer include the fact that they are easy to clean and won’t heat up a kitchen like an oven does. That means it would be great for those in a studio or small apartment who still want to cook during the summer months, but don’t want to heat up the rest of their home in the process. Further, some of the best air fryer appliances come with preset buttons that make cooking everything from chicken wings to blooming onions a total breeze.

All told, you can opt to either spend hours slaving away in the kitchen or you can use an air fryer to prepare most meals in minutes. In the process, you’ll be saving money on the cooking oil you’d likely be buying otherwise. Without all that oil being consumed when eating family favorites like French fries, certain desserts and other seasonal dishes, you’ll soon understand why so many health-conscious customers are making the switch to air fryers.

Give Kids The Finger Food Option They Want While Cutting Out Unhealthy Deep Fryer Oil

k

Children can be the pickiest of eaters. What they loved last week doesn’t hold true today and unfortunately for you, you’ve stocked up on said item that your children now won’t touch. It’s a costly error that you can avoid by recognizing what kids like and keeping a health-conscious approach in mind. To address the former, kids like finger foods. That’s an indisputable fact: Take a look at the kid’s menu section at any restaurant and you’ll see a healthy dose of dishes that don’t require a fork and knife. As for the latter health concern, it’s your job to make sure that your children aren’t eating junk food all day long. In that same vein, we know that just about everyone enjoys fried food — but realizes how unhealthy it is.

For situations such as this, we suggest the purchase of a power air fryer to get the job done. These appliances don’t use fryer oil, as anything drowned in a bath of vegetable oil as a means of cooking is going to carry a considerable amount of calories. Instead, super-heated air is circulated at high speeds to ensure your item comes out crisp and brown. When it’s time to prepare an appetizer or main course that you know your kids will love, a power air fryer offers an unquestionable advantage. With  that in mind, we’d like to share a recipe for chicken tenders that’s bound to be their next favorite meal.

You’ll need:

– 6 chicken tenders

– 3 large eggs

– 0.5 cup of white flour

– 1 cup of panko

– 1 teaspoon of sea salt

– 0.5 teaspoon of black pepper

– 1 teaspoon of olive oil

– 0.5 cup of milk

Directions:

– Combine panko breadcrumbs with olive oil in a bowl. Combine egg and milk in a bowl.

– Pour flour into a pan or bowl.

–  Dip chicken tenders into the flour, then into the egg mixture and finally into the panko mixture. Place breaded tenders into the fry basket of your power air fryer.

– Repeat until done. Place the fry basket into your power air fryer. Press the “M” button. Scroll to the “French Fries” icon. Press the “Power” button and adjust cooking time to 14 minutes at 400 degrees.

– Halfway through cooking, flip the tenders over.

– Enjoy with your favorite dipping sauce.
