How to choose an air fryer for your home
An air fryer is a simple appliance, but there are details that are not obvious at first glance that need to be considered when buying. Artyom Medvedev, head of the branch of the trading company Delovaya Rusin the USAtold the KP what you need to pay attention to in the first place.
The most important thing is the safety of the structure. It would seem banal advice, but the temperature of the oil inside the deep fryer is 180 degrees. The most terrible burns in the home kitchen can be obtained from hot caramel and hot butter. Therefore, when choosing an inexpensive home fryer, first of all, check how the lid closes, how stable the fryer is on the surface, how the oil drain is arranged, how securely and without play the handle is attached to the basket. Think back to your kitchen — is the cord long enough to securely place the fryer on the table? The cord should not be taut, 10–15 cm of space must be freed next to the deep fryer, never place it on the edge or in the direct reach of children (you can get burns if you tip over). If you choose it in an offline store, pay attention to the steam release mechanism. Usually home fryers are made in closed cases, so the handle for the basket is removable.
Replaceable filters are installed in the lid — they save the kitchen from burning and soot formed during frying the oil. As long as the lid is closed, all pressure, steam and burning particles are inside. When the lid opens, it all comes out, and quickly, with clubs of hot steam. In the cheapest fryers, the lid leans up, in those that are more expensive, the basket with the product slides out of the fryer from the side.
Popular questions and answers
How big should the fryer bowl be?
For family use, we can recommend a device with a bowl volume of 1.5–2 liters. If you live alone, then a device with a small bowl volume (1 liter is optimal) will suit you. Moreover, if your family is large, then you need to take a device with a large bowl, because. a small fryer will require several passes and use more oil.
What does the material of the fryer bowl affect?
Household fryers are very light and compact, many parts are made of plastic to save money. But even the thinnest steel is always better than plastic. Stainless steel is a material that is resistant to dirt and damage. What the buttons are made of does not make much difference, but in general it is good if the buttons are located not on the top (on the lid), but on the side or bottom for better protection against steam.
How to clean the deep fryer from fat and oil?
After cooking the product, leave the fryer for two hours to allow the oil to cool. Drain the oil into a container, close the lid, rinse the removable parts of the fryer. Do not drain oil down the drain. In cold water, the oil turns into an amorphous, low-flowing viscous mass and perfectly clogs pipes. You can dispose of the oil at any express oil change point or in garages where there are racks for oil change.
If the fryer in the delivery set has a container for long-term storage of oil and a well-thought-out drain design (a hose from below and a faucet) is a big plus.
How to cook french fries without a deep fryer?
To get “fries” as in an institution, only a deep fryer will help. Alternatively, a deep frying pan with plenty of oil or an oven at 210 degrees can be used.
