How it works (without oil)?

No miracle, we must indeed a little fat for your potatoes! If for a package of industrial chips, you do not need to add (they already contain), you will have revenge in your home cut potatoes soak up about 1/2 tablespoon. It is then a very hot air wind golden fries, using a fan, a grill and a tank bottom in a star shape.

In practice, what happens?


Using the machine is very easy, even if the animal seems imposing and heavy at first. Just plug, check the cooking time recommended to choose the thermostat. To launch the “Healthy Frying”, simply switch on the timer.

Are the good fries?

Yes, the less fat. Perhaps you will succeed even bluff your friend (e) a fan of fries. That said, they recall the taste and appearance of fried bake. And learning the cooking time is not easy: you have to put at least 300g of chips, 700g maximum in the pan (or 2 large cones at McDonald’s) and provide the correct cooking time -between 9 and 14 minutes for frozen.  It is also really good mix and shakes back and forth mid-cooking pan. Under penalty of having this second batch of fries, this time home, charred and molasses both.

It’s cooked with other foods?

It’s like the microwave: Heat can be there a lot of stuff, depending on the recipe book. But the result will not necessarily be up to it, as evidenced by our yogurt cake, cooked in spite of time and temperature indications provided by the user manual. So, we preferred to transfer the cake in an old oven. We therefore recommend the machine for cooking quiches, cakes: not easy to find a mold size pan. Instead, nuggets, hash browns, breaded fish sticks are pampered by the Airfryer. As for the interest it cooks steak or chops, uh, we do not see.


So, Worth to buy it?
