3 Amazing Benefits of an Air Fryer

  • 8 September

Haven’t you thought that it’s a bit unfair that all the foods that you love indulging in can negatively affect your health in one way or another? 

Whether it is vada pavs, samosas, bhajias or kebabs, these authentic and scrumptious Indian street foods just keep your hearts wanting for more, but this isn’t necessarily a good thing. These meals are always deep fried and cooked in large amounts of oil. In addition, because it is street food, the quality of the oil is quite unreliable and this can be a cause of concern to your health in the long run. 

Foods that have large amounts of oil are high in calories and fats. This makes you prone to certain health conditions like weight gain, heart disease, diabetes, acne, etc. 

Fortunately, there is a much better alternative to eating delicious and crispy food that is healthy, without sacrificing its flavour. With Crompton’s air fryer, you can enjoy a variety of meals that are delicious and healthy.

Benefits of an Air Fryer:

  • Reduces Oil Consumption

An air fryer works in a similar way to a convection oven. The heating coil in the air fryer can create heat that goes up to 200°C which starts cooking the food inside while creating a crisp and brown outer layer. As the food starts cooking, the oils that come out from the food drop into the basket below. This is why you hardly need any oil while cooking with an air fryer. Crompton’s super-helix heating element and jet turbo fins showcase a quick fry technology that can cook perfect vadas in no time. We even provide free tongs and an oil brush to apply oil to the surface of the food so it doesn’t burn.

The best advantage of an air fryer is being able to cook your food while using minimal oil. Because of the advanced heating system, you will end up with crispy foods that would’ve otherwise been achieved by deep frying it in oil.

  • Helps In Weight Loss 

With the significant reduction in oil consumption, cooking with an air fryer is a fun and simple way to work towards weight loss. Indian starters and meals often require lots of oil in the cooking process, which makes it difficult to achieve our weight loss goals. One of the best benefits of cooking with an air fryer is losing a few more calories while eating delicious food.

  • Reduces The Risk of Heart-Related Problems

Eating too many oily foods on a regular basis can increase your cholesterol levels and create an imbalance in your blood pressure. This can lead to various heart diseases like heart strokes and in severe cases, heart attacks. If you or somebody in your house is at risk of heart-related diseases, then switching to an air fryer would be the best decision. You can prepare the same foods you cook on a daily basis while using much lesser oil.

  • Easy Clean-Up

One simple advantage of an air fryer is its easy clean-up process. Deep frying always requires a burdensome process of filling a utensil with oil and looking for a place to store the oil after you’re done cooking so that you can wash the utensil after. 

Crompton’s air fryer comes with a large removable inner basket. After you’re done cooking, you can simply take out this basket, wash it with some soap and water or even pop it in the dishwasher as it is dishwasher safe. It’s as easy as that!

Types Of Foods To Make With An Air Fryer

An air fryer does not limit your cooking, if anything it can expand your cooking repertoire even more. With Crompton’s air fryer you will also receive a recipe book with recipes for oil-free dishes, so that you may never run out of ideas. A few common foods people cook in an air fryer are

  • Fried Potato Wedges

  • Paneer Tikka
  • Samosa

The list can go on with the number of things you can make in an air fryer. Crompton’s Air Fryer allows you to cook your food to perfection with its variable temperature and timer control setting.
