If I have an air fryer, do I still need an oven and a frying pan?

By using less oil in the cooking process, air fryers produce healthier food. So how does this innovation compare with the other, more traditional ways of cooking? 


Fling away your frying pan


The clever thing about the air fryer is that your food will taste the same as it would if cooked in a frying pan or a deep fat fryer. In fact, you’ll use 95% less oil, which has massive health benefits. This means you can enjoy your favourite foods at the same time as maintaining a good diet, making your frying pan pretty much redundant. Could it be time to take your frying pan to the recycling centre? 


As sure as eggs is eggs


You may hesitate to get rid of your frying pan completely - what about fried eggs? Surely they can’t be cooked in the air? Well, yes they can! You can air fry eggs in all the same ways you cook them in a frying pan - fried, scrambled or omelette. You can even boil an egg in your air fryer. Click here for recipes. 


So much cheaper to run than your oven


Thanks to the air flow technology, your food will cook quicker than in a conventional oven. And the reduced cooking time means you’ll save energy - a huge advantage when we’re all trying to tighten our belts when it comes to utility bills. 


You can also save on utility bills because our air fryers are smaller than your conventional oven. So if you’re only cooking for one or two people, you won’t be using so much energy. For example, the multifunctional Sensio Home Mega 21L Capacity Air Fryer Oven uses less energy than a conventional oven because it’s smaller and it cooks your food faster. Yet it’s large enough to cook a chicken on the rotisserie accessory that comes with it. 


How do air fryers work? 


The super-fast air flow technology means you get the tenderness and crunch of deep frying but with much less oil, or even no oil. Your food is cooked on all sides at once, with the result that it will be crispy on the outside and beautifully tender on the inside. All the flavour but, with less oil, fewer calories! This also means that your food will be cooked evenly, something you can’t guarantee when you’re cooking it in a frying pan or even in a non-fan oven.
