Air fryer cooking has taken South Africa by storm. What started out as a niche cooking method has now become one of the most popular and talked-about ways of preparing food. In fact, in July this year, Cape Talk Radio reported that air fryers have become so popular in South Africa, that it’s affected the cooking oil industry!
But what is it about the air fryer that has South Africa buzzing? Well, the benefits of using an air fryer are seemingly endless… It all started during the Covid-19 pandemic, when millions of people around the world (many of whom don’t traditionally cook!) were forced to stay at home and prepare their own food.
The air fryer offered a quick, easy and affordable method to prepare fries, chicken, veggies, pizzas and just about any other food.
Air fryer cooking is:
Deep-fried food may be delicious, but it is incredibly unhealthy – the consumption of too much fat and oil is a leading cause of high cholesterol, heart disease and obesity. Air fryers work by circulating hot air around a food item to create the same crispiness as in traditional fried foods. This means you can enjoy your favourite foods and flavours without the oil.
Air fryers cook food a lot faster than other appliances, saving you time. They are particularly handy when you’re cooking for a family or when you’re rushing to finish the food before loadshedding kicks in.
Because air fryers cook food in less time, you’ll use less electricity, saving you money.
Air fryer food is tasty, and affords you the opportunity to enjoy all your favourite meals, but prepared in a much healthier way.
Air fryer cooking is safe, and it eliminates the dangers of cooking with hot oil.
