Why do we use oil in our cooking? There are two main answers to this question. First, oil makes the food tasty. Second, it raises the temperature to 180 degrees centigrade during cooking. This temperature is needed to cook food in the best possible manner. Almost all Indian food preparations need oil to cook the food; so, the concept of oil­less food can be a bit of a discomfort to most home makers. It is true that you can now make food without oil and still get the same taste that you would get with oil. How?

There are some innovative home appliances or gadgets that have hit the market in the recent years. One such innovative product is the air fryer or oil less fryer. These air fryers have latest technology that allows cooking of food without even a drop of oil on them. There are adjustable temperature options that can control the internal temperature up to 200 degrees centigrade. You will also find a 30­minute timer with a ready signal and auto shut­off feature—just in case you forget to shut the electrical connection.

You can make French fries very well in the oil less fryer. All you need to do is to cut the potatoes in long pieces, soak them in water, and then put them in the air fryer. For better results, you will have to remove the potatoes mid­way and shake the container a bit. In just a matter of a few minutes, you will get fantastic French fries. Air fryers provide healthy and tasty food for the entire family. They are also very convenient to use. Since these fryers operate on electricity, they can be kept on the dining table as well.

There is a fan technology in the air fryer that removes the fats and oils from the food. It allows these oils to drip through the drip basket and then air fries the food items. This technology constantly coats your food by making the oil air borne inside the container. Thus, you don’t lose the nutrition of the food, which makes this a very healthy cooking method. Most of us don’t know that the raw food items that we buy from the market already contain a little amount of oil. This oil in the food items is sufficient to cook the food, but there are some limitations. People who love too much of oil in their food may not find the air fryer much useful, but if they want to enhance the taste of the food, they can apply a bit of oil on the surface of the food items. Instead of oil, even butter can be used to coat the raw food items before preparing the food.

The air fryer is a latest innovation in food technology and has received a lot of positive review comments. The cost of this fryer varies from one brand to another; hence, it is recommended that you do an extensive research on the internet to get the best deal for you.
