Deep fry vs air fryer

Yes, there’s a vast difference between deep-fried food and air-fried food.

If you are still consuming food that is oily and deep-fried, it’s time to switch over air-fried food now.

Air Fryer roast, grill, bake, your food by heating up the temperature using an in-built high-powered fan. At the same time, deep fryers use hot oil to cook food.

Though both methods are useful in cooking food quickly, you have to wait for at least a couple of minutes before the oil gets heated in the deep frying method.

And Air fryer takes a fraction of seconds to heat up after you switch it on. It takes time according to the timer that you have set prior to putting food into it.

Moreover, if we look at oil consumption,

The Deep Fry method consumes more oil because the food that you are deep frying absorbs more oil. No doubt it makes food more flavorful, but it’s unhealthy too.

And in the Air Fry method, only 1-2 tbsp of oil is used. Hence, the roasting, grilling, etc, performed in Air Fryer makes food less oily and also cuts fats.

The answer is 99% No, until and unless you use any cheap/non-branded air fryer and the food quality degrades your health.

If you are acquiring a branded air fryer, the air-fried food is always gonna be healthy than deep-fried food.

For getting crispy & juicy texture and taste, you need to add just a little amount of oil, i.e., somewhere around 1 tbsp, and that’s it. You will get the best results in the air fryer.
