How does an air fryer work?

And what can you cook in an air fryer?

...and what can you cook in an air fryer?

Air fryers, sometimes called health fryers, use rapid air circulation to cook food so they only need a small amount of oil. This means less fat, faster cooking and less clean-up than conventional fryers, but with the same tasty results.

Recipes

There are many things you can cook in an air fryer: meat, chicken, fish, vegetables, frozen food and more - you can even bake brownies!

Features to look out for

Multiple cooking zones

Simply put, these air fryers have different compartments, so you can cook two delicious dishes at once - ideal for a complete meal. Some have two layers, while others have both a pot and a removable basket (ideal for chips).

Automatic stirring paddle

Many air fryers have a paddle which gently stirs the food when in use to ensure it's cooked evenly, so there's no need to shake or stir, saving you time.

Dishwasher-safe parts

Don't fancy washing up afterwards? Many air fryers have parts which can go in the dishwasher to make cleaning easy - just check the product description before you buy.
