Here’s a cooking trend that has been around through the lockdown’s ever-changing eating lifestyle: air fryer cooking.

Now for those who are new to the air fryer, it’s reminiscent of an oven but just smaller in size and stronger in heat power. The little gadget is a work of magic, since it gives your food a deep-frying effect without having to actually drown it in oil or use any oil at all for that matter. It circulates high heat in a very high speed in the little food basket, which is very much like what oil does in deep frying. Thereby, not only does it cut the calories of your favourite dishes like French fries or chicken nuggets, but the food also gets cooked very fast due to the strong heat and its petite size. Interested now? If you don’t own one yet or are looking for a newer and better one to buy, here’s our list of great air fryers you should definitely check out.

We love this Philips Air Fryer XXL not only because of its black and rose gold hues, but also because its extra extra large size that could easily cook a whole chicken at one time. This makes it the best tool to have in the kitchen if you cook for a big crowd or a family. With Smart Sensing technology, this air fryer will also automatically set the right time and temperature for your food to make sure it doesn’t get overcooked.
