What is an Air Fryer and How is it Different?

by James Smith

Tater tots, chicken wings, fish fillets, and fair favorites like corndogs, Oreos, and Snickers Bars—the possibilities are endless for what food items you can prepare in a fryer. Fried food is a simple luxury everyone splurges on from time to time, but it follows a long list of junk foods that should only be eaten in moderation. Some of the best-tasting food happens to be the unhealthiest and that’s just the unfair reality.

Frigidaire has listened closely to your hungry, stomach-rumbling pleas for a healthier alternative to fried food that you can comfortably prepare in your home. Good news: there is finally a solution! You can make your own fried food with the new Frigidaire Gallery Front Control Range—the very first range to include an Air Fry feature at the touch of a button!

You may be asking yourself, what is Air Fry? How does it work? Is it different from other oven modes? All excellent questions. Let’s find out, shall we?

What is an Air Fryer?

To put it simply, the Frigidaire Air Fry is an added feature of your range. The same process you would use to change the traditional settings on your oven to convection, you can now change to the Air Fry setting—specifically designed to handle your favorite fried foods. No more lugging out the deep fryer or changing the hot, messy oil—Air Fry is a safe and simple solution to discover the health-conscious world of decadent fried food recipes.

How Does it Work?

At the beginning of the cooking process, the Air Fry setting delivers a much higher temperature which quickly crisps the surface of the food. The super-charged heat is evenly circulated throughout the oven, so every item is cooked to perfection. After a quick burst of direct heat, Air Fry gradually decreases the cooking temperature to ensure a golden, crispy exterior, while maintaining a tender, juicy inside.

How is it Different?

That’s a fair and honest question—and while you may be skeptical, we assure you Air Fry is the real deal. Air Fry offers all the flavor with none of the guilt—designed to deliver crispy results with little or no oil. Frigidaire’s Air Fry uses more than 2X the heating power than the standard convection mode. The multi-rack frying surface can handle your family-sized meals or the largest cuts of meat with 3X the capacity of countertop fryers. It’s easy to use and you no longer have to worry about flipping your food during the cooking process.

Your Fryer, Your Way!
