What is an air fryer?
The air fryer is a multifunctional kitchen device. You can: fry meat, bake, dry fruits and berries, reheat food and much more. At the same time, the food cooked in the air fryer turns out to be tasty, the meat and fish are juicy, and most importantly, all the useful substances in the products are preserved after cooking.
The principle of operation is easy. With the help of the fan, the air heated by the heating element and accelerated through the glass flask. This makes it possible to distribute warm air and cook food without fear of overcooking. The timer installed on the control panel allows you to set the cooking time, and the person can do other important things without worrying about cooking food.

How do these things relate to convection ovens?
If you don’t know what a convection oven is, it’s an oven
basically. An oven that has a fan inside of it and the fan circulates the hot air so it prevents hot spots and it also makes things cook a little faster. These are basically mini countertop convection ovens; they also cook a little faster just like a regular oven.
If I already have a convection oven do I want an air fryer?
You don’t. You might not need one of these. But they
do have other benefits um they’re really contained. So it’s nice splatter-free cooking. Really easy to clean up from everything. Dishwasher safe. They free up your regular oven. So if you know you’ve got a lot of things going on or you just want to cook a couple of chicken nuggets it’s a lot smaller of a thing to heat up and also it won’t heat up your whole room.
Can I take recipes from a convection oven cookbook and use them for air fryers?
Probably not. Because the receipts book specifically designed for these machines, and they have such different sizes and shapes versus a regular oven. You know they’re like small little pods. No, they’re not that big, but they’re small. Much smaller than a regular oven and these recipes are really perfectly tailored to air fryers.
So, I can make food in an air fryer only for two people?
So for our cookbook, our goal was to cook as much food in there as possible without compromising the quality. It kind of depends on what you’re cooking. For example, they can really only fit two chicken breasts side-by-side. So this is two servings. But if you’re cooking a pork tenderloin, because they’re a little taller you can actually get four servings in there. Air fryers are awesome for two people. They can also work for two to four people you’re cooking.
