Using an Air Fryer is Not Complicated at All!

For users transitioning from gas or induction cookers to air fryers, getting used to a new kitchen appliance can indeed be daunting. However, the air fryer is one of the easiest kitchen tools to use.

 

Beginners Should Preheat the Air Fryer

Preheating is an essential step that cannot be overlooked before cooking with an air fryer. The preheating process allows the air fryer to reach the set temperature, ensuring that the food heats up quickly during cooking. This not only shortens cooking time but also improves the texture of the food. Generally, the preheating time is 3 to 5 minutes, which may vary depending on the specific model and the type of food.

 

Set the Right Temperature and Time

Unlike gas and induction cookers, setting the temperature and time is crucial when using an air fryer. In practice, different foods require different temperatures and times. For example, cooking chicken wings typically requires setting the temperature at around 200°C for 15 to 20 minutes, while roasting vegetables may only need 180°C for 10 to 15 minutes. To help users get started quickly, you can refer to the recommended temperature and time tables for common ingredients, ensuring that the food is neither undercooked nor overcooked.

 

Shake and Turn Food

During cooking, shaking and turning the food at the right time is an effective method to ensure even heating. Although the air fryer's hot air circulation can cover most foods, flipping the food several times midway through cooking can prevent some parts from being under or overcooked, especially for larger or more stacked items. Generally, it is recommended to open the fryer lid halfway through cooking, gently shake or use tongs to flip the food, and then continue cooking.

 

How to Use an Air Fryer Efficiently for Multiple Meals

Preparing Breakfast

In the absence of gas or an induction cooker, you don't need the largest air fryer; a regular one can be an excellent helper in preparing three meals. From breakfast, lunch, and dinner to snacks and desserts, the air fryer can handle it all. During breakfast, an air fryer can quickly prepare various delicious and nutritious foods. Omelets are a good choice; simply pour the beaten egg mixture and ingredients into the fryer, set the time and temperature, and enjoy a delicious omelet in a few minutes. Toast and bacon are also great combinations, saving time and being delicious.

 

Making Lunch and Dinner

By lunchtime and dinner, the multi-function air fryer can really shine. Main dishes and side dishes like roasted chicken legs, fish, and vegetables can be easily prepared. Just season the ingredients simply, place them in the fryer, set the appropriate temperature and time, and wait for the delicious food to be ready. Especially in the absence of gas or an induction cooker, the air fryer's high efficiency makes preparing a sumptuous dinner extremely convenient.

 

Making Snacks and Desserts

Making snacks and treats is also a breeze. Common snacks like fries, chicken wings, and onion rings are easy to prepare and healthier than traditional frying methods. With little or no oil, you can make crispy and tender snacks to satisfy your daily cravings. For desserts, the air fryer can also showcase its versatility. Whether it's tarts, cookies, or muffins, with a bit of preparation, you can easily bake sweet and delicious desserts with an air fryer to satisfy your sweet tooth.

 

Energy-Saving Cooking Tips for Air Fryers

Cooking Multiple Foods at Once

In the absence of gas and an induction cooker, saving energy becomes a key issue. Air fryers, due to their efficient hot air circulation systems, are already highly energy-efficient, but we can still use some tips to further enhance their energy-saving effects. First, make full use of the air fryer's space by cooking multiple foods simultaneously, effectively saving time and electricity. For example, while roasting chicken legs, you can place some vegetables beside them to roast together, saving time and allowing the flavors of different foods to blend.

 

Reducing Preheating Time

Reducing preheating time is another way to save energy. Before starting to cook, you can prepare all the ingredients in advance and then preheat the fryer, shortening the preheating time and improving cooking efficiency. For foods that require longer cooking times, you can choose to cook in batches: cook the longer-cooking ingredients first, then add the shorter-cooking ones, avoiding long heating times and wasting energy.

 

Arranging Cooking Sequences Rationally

Rationally arranging the cooking sequence is also key to saving energy. For example, you can cook high-temperature foods first and then use the remaining heat to cook lower-temperature foods, saving energy and making better use of the air fryer's heat efficiency.

 

Creative Air Fryer Recipes

Quick Breakfasts

Air Fryer Omelet: Mix the beaten eggs with chopped vegetables and sausage, pour into the air fryer, set to 180°C, and bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Whole Wheat Toast with Avocado: Place whole wheat toast slices in the air fryer, set to 180°C, bake for 3 to 5 minutes, then spread avocado paste on top.

 

Lunch Box Recipes

Air Fryer Chicken Bites: Cut chicken breast into small pieces, marinate with salt, pepper, and olive oil, place in the air fryer, set to 200°C, and bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Roasted Vegetable Lunch Box: Cut carrots, potatoes, broccoli, and other vegetables into pieces, mix with olive oil and seasoning, place in the air fryer, set to 180°C, and bake for 15 to 20 minutes.

 

Healthy Dinners

Roasted Salmon with Broccoli: Marinate salmon fillets and broccoli with salt, pepper, and olive oil, place in the air fryer, set to 200°C, and bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Air Fryer Steak: Marinate the steak with salt, pepper, and olive oil, place in the air fryer, set to 200°C, and bake for 8 to 10 minutes.

 

Emergency Air Fryer Usage Tips

Using Backup Power

Without gas or an induction cooker, the air fryer still needs electricity to operate. If your living environment frequently experiences power outages, it is recommended to prepare a reliable backup power source. You can choose a high-capacity portable power station or a small generator to ensure you can continue using the air fryer for cooking during power outages. These devices usually have multiple output ports, capable of powering the air fryer and other small appliances.

 

Preparing Air Fryer Semi-Prepared Foods in Advance

To ensure smooth cooking in emergencies, you can prepare some semi-prepared foods or frozen foods suitable for air fryers in advance. This way, even in emergencies, you can quickly prepare a meal with short heating times. Additionally, you can plan your air fryer cooking process in emergencies to maximize efficiency and minimize reliance on power.

 

Efficient Cooking with Limited Power

When using a backup power source, pay special attention to the reasonable allocation of power. Choose low-power cooking modes, such as slow cooking at low temperatures or intermittent heating, to effectively extend the usage time of the backup power source. By reasonably arranging the cooking sequence, you can cook high-temperature foods first and use the remaining heat to heat other foods, improving energy utilization efficiency.

 

Common Air Fryer Problems and Solutions for Beginners

Uneven Food Cooking

In practice, different foods have different temperature and time requirements. For example, cooking chicken wings typically requires setting the temperature at around 200°C for 15 to 20 minutes, while roasting vegetables may only need 180°C for 10 to 15 minutes. To help users get started quickly, you can refer to the recommended temperature and time tables for common ingredients, ensuring that the food is neither undercooked nor overcooked.

 

Food Not Crispy

During cooking, shaking and turning the food at the right time is an effective method to ensure even heating. Although the air fryer's hot air circulation can cover most foods, flipping the food several times midway through cooking can prevent some parts from being under or overcooked, especially for larger or more stacked items. Generally, it is recommended to open the fryer lid halfway through cooking, gently shake or use tongs to flip the food, and then continue cooking.

 

Odor Residue

After using the air fryer, odor residue is a common issue, especially when continuously cooking different types of foods. To effectively remove residual odors in the air fryer, you can take several measures, such as steaming lemon water in the air fryer or mixing white vinegar and water in a 1:1 ratio and pouring it into the bottom of the air fryer. White vinegar is highly effective at neutralizing odors. Additionally, thoroughly clean the detachable parts of the air fryer after each use, especially the filters and baskets, as these areas tend to accumulate grease and food residue, causing odors.
