An air fryer is a new kitchen appliance that can help bring the taste of fried foods, but in a healthy way! Air fryers use minimal amounts of oil to fry foods. They create a maillard effect, This is what causes the food to change color and the flavor to change. This is a simple alternative to bring in “fried” foods with lower amounts of fat and calories. As mentioned above, a minimal amount of oil is used to fry the foods (about 1 tablespoon to be exact.) This decrease in oil can reduce the amount of fat in this type of fried food by at least 75%.
