So You Want to Buy an
Air Fryer?

Air Fryer’s have been a Briscoes fan favourite since we began stocking them, and most recently they have made appearances in the news with air fryers gaining popularity with New Zealanders nationwide. Here is a guide to help you pick the right air fryer for you, so you can join the conversation and make fried food at home. 

How Air Fryers Work

The whole idea of an air fryer is to be an alternative to deep frying, getting a similar result but using much less oil and circulating hot air to cook your food. They are a bench top appliance, and can be used to cook veggies, pastries, dry out fruit for cocktails or even fry chicken.

Most air fryers are simple to use with either a single or dual basket that the food is placed in for cooking, depending on the size of the basket or oven space, and air fryer, you can get up to the size of an entire chicken sitting nicely inside. A bit of oil, usually two teaspoons, is added, and the cooking time and heat can be adjusted from the outside of the air fryer.
