Yet another benefit of the air fryer.
Not only have they been hailed as a healthy way to cook, but now the humble air fryer adds energy efficiency to the list.
Air fryers use hot air for cooking food, similar to a convection oven, but on a smaller scale. Compared to a traditional oven, an air fryer can help you save energy in several ways.
Firstly, an air fryer heats up much faster than an oven, requiring less energy to reach the desired temperature, which means you can start cooking your food faster, and you don't have to wait for the oven to preheat for as long.
Secondly, an air fryer is much smaller than an oven, requiring less energy to heat the cooking space, which is particularly useful if you're cooking for one or two people and don't need a large oven.
Lastly, an air fryer doesn't need to be preheated for as long as an oven, and it cooks food faster than a traditional oven means you can cook your food in less time, which saves energy and reduces your electricity bill.
Overall, an air fryer can be an excellent energy-efficient alternative to a traditional oven, particularly for small meals or when cooking for fewer people. However, keep in mind that you should always review the energy rating labels before purchasing to ensure you are buying an efficient model.
