Air “Frying” is Rapid Air Cooking
Air fryers have an amazing ability to create heat very quickly, and circulate it around very quickly (much like a convection oven, but more compact). This allows food to get a great fried food effect when there is oil on the surface, or within the food that you are cooking, and allows you to cook food quickly (or reheat cold pizza). This is especially true of foods that can benefit from a dry cooking method (such as stuff you would put in the oven or fryer). I find that I am able to make some great tasting dishes and sides in less time than it would take for me to preheat my oven.
I love vegetables, but especially in the air fryer. I find myself and my family wanting vegetables to be cooked in the air fryer whenever possible. From asparagus to zucchini, I’m sure you can find a way to cook it in the air fryer. While breading might make some foods taste more like “fried” foods, it is not needed for really tasty vegetables.
Air Fryer and Pressure Cooking Combination
As mentioned above, the air fryer works great in combination with pressure cookers. The combination cooking works especially well with potatoes and chicken wings. The power of steam from the pressure cooker allow the interior of your food to be cooked to how you like it, then the air fryer gets that great crispy and brown exterior that makes the food taste that much better. You can find out more about my electric pressure cooker obsession in KFO Electric Pressure Cooker/Multi-function Cooker Obsession and Recipes page.
