I have discovered that Air Fryers cook food beautifully, retain the food’s flavor and give me the ability to fry, roast, bake or grill. Not only that, but the food is always healthier, tastier and healthier.What a great combination! In this post, i will share few hot air fryer recipes which i cooked personally & simply loving it.
I’m going to present a few of the very best and most popular Air Fryer recipes, but first I’d like to quote some comments from medical professionals about why Air Fryers cook the healthiest food.
Nandita Lyer, a Doctor who shares her thoughts on nutrition on the website Saffron Trail says that air fryers cause virtually no loss of nutrition in vegetables or meat in the air-frying process, due to the short amount of time it takes for the Air Fryer to cook foods through.
Here are some statistics which compare Air Fried Potato Fries, cooked on a Traditional stove top and a modern Air Fryer:
8.2 grams per 100 grams of Chips
2.8 grams per 100 grams of Chips
1.5 grams per 100 grams of Chips.
The statistic I have read about Air Fryers is that food cooked in an Air Fryer contains a high 80% less fat than food cooked by other methods. So combined with the table above, this statistic goes a long way toward showing that
Air Frying is one of the healthiest methods of cooking.Apart from this,regular exercise is also important to maintain your fitness.So buying the best elliptical machine will be a wise decision for your losng lasting sound health.
- 50g Castor Sugar

- Sift in the flour, cocoa powder and the salt. Mix well.
- Transfer the butter to a ring tin and use the back of a spoon to smooth the surface.
- Put the cake in the tin into the Air Fryer basket. Set the timer on the Air Fryer for 15 mins and bake until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the cake can be removed totally clean. (This recipe works best with a brand that has the basket at the bottom of the Air Fryer.)
This Chocolate Cake is a Five Star Recipe.
“This chocolate cake recipe is quick and simple and it delivers!”

“This recipe is a cross between a baked potato and potato fries. It makes a delicious change from these two.”
I found a useful quote from Raj Ranju, on Quora.com, “It’s true that Air Fryers use less oil than conventional fryers, but still it’s important to take into account the type of oil that you are using.” Always use healthy oils in your Air Fryer; don’t use stale oils, or reheated oils. Use something like fresh Olive Oil. Walnut Oil has high levels of Omega-3, so that is quite good to use in an Air Fryer too.
I agree that most people prefer healthy, low-fat meals, so that’s one reason why an Air Fryer is one of the best kitchen appliances. Here are some more reasons why I just love my Air Fryer.
- My Air Fryer cuts down on cooking time. I know there are many busy women who can relate to the need to serve up a healthy meal quickly.
- The Air Fryer is so easy to clean. There are no messy, oily baking trays or frying pans. I just dismantle the air fryer and put the parts into the dishwasher.
- I recommend the use of an Air Fryer for people who are on a low-calorie, or fat-free diet. The Air Fryer is medically proven to help people to lower their cholesterol.
- My kids love it when I use the Air Fryer to cook up treats for them. I suggest making chicken nuggets and potato fries on birthdays or for barbecues. This way nuggets and fries are seen as a special treat.
Here is the recipe I consider to the best one that I ever made in an Air Fryer:
- 4 tablespoons Vegetable Oil
- 100 g Breadcrumbs
- 1 Egg, whisked
- 4 Fish Fillets
- 1 Lemon
- Preheat the Air Fryer to 180ᵒ C.
- Mix the oil and the breadcrumbs together,
- Stir the mixture until it becomes loose and crumbly.
- Dip fish fillets into the egg, the shake of any residue; keep dipping the fish fillets into the egg mix until it is fully and evenly covered.
- Gently lay the crumbed fish fillets into the air tray and cook for 12 mins
- Serve immediately, squeeze or slice the lemon for serving.
This is a Five Star Recipe.If you are die hurt fan of fish made dishes, here is another air fryer fish recipe.
“Crumbed fish is now back on the menu, thanks to this fantastic Air Fryer version!”
There is some interesting research about food and cooking on the Internet. There are several sites that I often go to. Institute of Food Technology says that “Air Frying reduces Acrylamide content by 90%, compared with deep-oil frying without a pre-treatment being necessary.” I have read that Acrylamide in fried foods is carcinogenic.
My opinion is that the Air Fryer is a reliable and safe kitchen appliance. It’s been proved by Scientists and health experts that this is true. I already have an Air Fryer on my kitchen bench. Are you ready to buy one now? Unless you buy an airfryer, what about these hot air fryer recipes?
