The Black Decker Oil Free Air Fryer has not only one but double convection fans that provide powerful convection of ultra-heated air. This ensures that no heat goes to waste and that it coats all surfaces you want crisp and crusty. It also means that your cooking results come out fast and efficiently. If you find that you are often in a hurry in the kitchen, this air fryer is your hero to the rescue.
It can cook food up to 3 times faster than your conventional deep fryer, thus saving you the cost of electricity. It is also able to cook all surfaces equally, so you are saved from the tedious guesswork of when to flip that patty or roll those balls. The air fryer covers the cooking surface for you.
It can fit up to 2 liters worth of food or approximately 8 cups within its frying basket, which is enough for about 2 to 4 servings.
So whether you are cooking a family dinner or for a romantic date at home, this fryer has you covered. You can delight the kids or impress your special someone with healthy meals prepared without the guilt of frying with oil, and you wouldn’t have to do so in batches since one go would be enough to feed a small family.
To keep up with your fast-paced lifestyle, it is made to be super quick and easy to clean up. The cooking surface is non-stick to ward off food buildup while cooking and avoid sticking even without the aid of oils or cooking sprays.
Both the cooking basket and the basket separator are dishwasher safe for easier and no-sweat cleanup. No need for exhausting scrubbing, scraping, and dealing with unwanted scraps sitting at the bottom of your cooking basket, this air fryer is basically low maintenance so that you can spend less time cooking, and even less time cleaning.
You can adjust the temperatures of the Black Decker Oil Free Air Fryer between 175° and 400° Fahrenheit. Its indicators are simple enough to understand even without a manual.
There are two indicator lights on the unit. One indicator light shows if the unit is powered on, and the other one switches off once the preheat temperature has been achieved. This way, you get an idea as to what stage of cooking your food is and if it’s time for you to give it a bit of a shake for even more crispiness.
To protect your food from burning to cinders and your house from smoke, the unit comes with a 60-minute timer that automatically shuts off the heat and air when the set time is reached.
You manually set up the timer depending on what you want to achieve with your cooking and then can be worry-free as your food cooks efficiently, knowing that the unit will shut down at the set time. As an added safety feature, the unit is built with a cool-touch handle that protects you from burns so that you can freely touch and open the lid without the risk of hurting yourself.
The dual convection fans mean that you can actually enjoy faster and more efficient cooking, but it also means that your food is more prone to burning if set to temperatures that are too high or too drying out if your timer is set for too long, depending on the type of food you are cooking. It is best to get some practice ahead before venturing out to cook larger batches, and some patience and experimentation may be called for in case it is your first time cooking certain foods with an air fryer.
If you find that you are often short of time in the kitchen, or you are just the impatient type who hates the idea of having to wait for too long for your deep-fried food to cook, you might want to consider using an air fryer such as this.
It is truly an efficient appliance to have in any household—not to mention the many health and safety benefits that you can reap from using such a fryer over time. You can say goodbye to long hours spent over the stove and say hello to easy and quick healthy meals for you and the family.
