Air Fryer - Frequently Asked Questions


In today's fast-paced world, saving time and money is crucial. If you are looking for a versatile kitchen appliance that can help you achieve both, the air fryer might be the perfect solution. It not only offers a healthier way to cook your favorite foods but also helps you lower energy costs and reduce cooking time.


Air fryers are becoming increasingly popular as they use hot air instead of oil to cook food, making meals healthier. But did you know they are also energy-efficient? This means they use less electricity than conventional ovens, which can save on your electricity bills. In an era where electricity consumption and living costs are a focus for most households, HYSapientia wants you to know how our air fryer products can help reduce your everyday cooking costs.


Why is the air fryer one of the most energy-efficient kitchen appliances?

One significant advantage of using an air fryer is its efficient energy usage. Compared to traditional ovens or stoves that require longer preheating times and consume more electricity, air fryers can heat up almost instantly and use significantly less energy.


"The power consumption of an air fryer depends on its type, size, set temperature, and usage time," notes Jennifer Warren, an energy expert on the Energy Guide website.


Data from the Energy Saving Trust shows that the typical cost of cooking 600 grams of chicken breast in an air fryer is about £0.14 (£0.21 in NI). The operating principle of air fryers is similar to that of small conventional fan ovens, but because air fryers are smaller, they usually cost less to operate for the same meals. If you are not sure how to calculate the power consumption and operating costs of air fryers, HYSapientia has detailed introductions in previous blogs, which we recommend you read.

How is the air fryer energy-efficient?

A key reason why air fryers and air fryer ovens are so energy-efficient is that they reach cooking temperatures very quickly. Compared to traditional ovens and stoves, air fryers cook faster due to their smaller size and powerful heating capabilities, meaning they run for shorter periods and consume less electricity. Air fryers work in a sealed cooking chamber and do not emit as much heat as conventional ovens, making the energy they use more focused on cooking itself rather than heating the entire room. Especially on hot days, using a conventional oven might raise the indoor temperature to unbearable levels, even with air conditioning. Since air fryers cook quickly and do not continuously produce a lot of heat, they do not significantly increase the room temperature or add to the burden on HVAC systems.

We can take some practical air fryer energy-saving tips to address these factors. HYSapientia has compiled methods to help you reduce electricity expenses with an air fryer.


  • Reduce preheating time:

Minimize the preheating time or choose whether to preheat based on the type of food. Often, you can simply place the food in the air fryer to heat up without extra preheating, saving energy. Unless specifically mentioned by the manufacturer, you might often skip the preheating phase to save electricity. Efficient preheating includes accurate timing so that the air fryer is ready when you need it, minimizing standby energy consumption and ensuring faster, more energy-efficient cooking.


  • Avoid opening the door to check:

During cooking, try to avoid frequently opening the door of the air fryer; each time you open it, heat escapes. Here, the air fryer will ultimately use more electricity to maintain the temperature.


  • Unplug when not in use:

Like any other device, you must unplug the air fryer when not in use. This way, you can eliminate the standby power consumption of the device when it is not in use.


  • Use the correct size:

Choosing an air fryer that fits the amount of your meals can prevent energy waste, and using the correct wattage can help reduce unnecessary electricity consumption.


  • Correct temperature and time:

Use the appropriate temperature and time for cooking. Avoid setting the temperature too high or the time too long, as this can prevent overcooking of the food and also reduce energy waste. Pay attention to the cooking time of the food in the air fryer. Overcooking can affect the quality of the food and lead to increased energy consumption. Adjust the cooking temperature to a lower setting whenever possible, not only to save energy but also to produce equally delicious results, especially for recipes that do not require high temperatures.


  • Use an insulation mat:

Placing an insulation mat under the air fryer can reduce heat loss, helping the device use energy more efficiently.


  • Regularly clean the air fryer:

Regularly clean the air fryer to ensure there is no grease or food residue inside. A clean air fryer is more efficient than one that needs to heat through grease and residues. A clean air fryer can use electricity more efficiently and enhance performance. Please follow the manufacturer's instructions to regularly clean the basket and any replaceable components.


Does cooking in batches or cooking in large quantities at once save more electricity with an air fryer?

Cooking more food at once usually saves more electricity than cooking in batches. This is because each time you start the air fryer, especially during the preheating phase, it consumes relatively more energy. When you prepare more food at once, the air fryer only needs to preheat once at the start of the cooking cycle, then maintain a certain temperature, without needing to reheat multiple times.


Moreover, cooking more food at once can reduce the number of times the air fryer is opened and closed, thereby reducing heat loss and energy waste. Therefore, if the capacity of your air fryer allows and you need to prepare enough food, cooking a sufficient amount of food at once is a more energy-efficient choice. Of course, ensuring there is enough space between the food to allow hot air to circulate, ensuring even cooking of the food, is also important.


Other ways air fryers reduce cooking costs

  • Reduce water costs

Compared to traditional cooking methods, the fast air circulation and efficient heating mechanism of air fryers allow you to cook food faster. This means you can spend less time in the kitchen and reduce utility bills.


  • Reduce oil consumption

Air fryers use hot air circulation technology to cook food, greatly reducing the amount of oil needed during cooking. This not only helps lower the cost of buying cooking oil in the long run but is also healthier.


  • Time efficiency

In addition to saving on energy costs, air fryers also save money by reducing cooking time. Air fryers generally heat up quickly and cook faster than traditional cooking methods, which can save a lot of cooking time. The savings in time can, to some extent, translate into a reduction in economic costs.


  • Versatility

Many air fryers have multiple functions such as roasting and baking, allowing one device to complete multiple cooking tasks, reducing the need to purchase other kitchen devices, thereby saving costs.


  • Easy to clean

Foods cooked in air fryers usually do not produce much oil smoke, keeping the kitchen environment cleaner. This can reduce the use of cleaning products, as well as the time and labor costs required for cleaning.


  • Reduce food waste

Air fryers usually ensure food is evenly heated, effectively avoiding waste caused by improper cooking. In addition, by reducing cooking time, air fryers also help retain the nutritional value of food. Shorter cooking times mean less nutrient loss, making meals healthier and tastier.
