How do health fryers work?
Health fryers, or air fryers, use hot air circulation to fry food and only need a small amount of oil. This means less fat, quicker cooking and less clean-up than conventional fryers, but with the same great taste and crispy texture.
What can I cook with a health fryer?
You can of course make classic fried food such as chips, chicken wings and onion rings. Many models also allow you to grill, sauté, roast and even bake.
