What is an Air fryer?
If you are struggling with your new kitchen gadget you are not alone. Everyone feels the same way when using devices for the first time. I would encourage you to use your air fryer because that’s the only way you can master it.”
An air fryer is a kitchen appliance that’s cooks like a convection oven. It’s usually a counter top appliance however with its growing popularity, companies are beginning to include this function in regular stovetop ranges.
The Air fryer has become so popular because of its promise to give the quality of fried foods without need for deep frying. Does it fulfill this promise? I think it does these air fryer crispy chicken drumsticks and boneless chicken thighs say so.
Why you need an Air fryer Cooking Chart
An air frying cooking chart is necessary to guide you as a beginner. It gives you a starting point to explore your new air fryer and start making easy air fryer recipes for beginners.
Printing it out makes it accessible to you whenever you like because you can easily stick it to your refrigerator for easy reference. Always remember this is a guide to get you started. Everyone has different ways they like their food cooked using steak as an example. Some like it rare, some medium rare, some well done.
Cooking times for air fryers.
I will have you know that when it comes to cooking times for air fryers, no one time fits all. There are a variety of factors involved so you need to treat charts as a guide. There are many time sheets across the internet with varying temperatures.
This is because air fryers are made be different manufacturers making each one unique. Like wise everyone cooks in different ways and each person prefers their foods in different ways. For example MR A liked his steak medium rare while Mrs B likes hers well done.
Mr A would most likely cook his steak for 6-8 mins looking out for an internal temp of 145F while Mrs B will be cooking here for up 25 mins looking out for an internal temp of 165F. Makes sense?
You should also know my time sheet is based on a non preheated air fryer. If you preheat your air fryer, cook for less time. Basically this a guide and you are free to adjust accordingly.
Do we air fry everything?
Can we air fryer everything? The answer is no. Just like not everything can be made in the oven, we cannot air fry everything. The most common foods we cook in the air fryer are meats. From chicken to beef and fish, the air fryer does a good job.
