Do you know how it works?

An air fryer is a newest technological innovation on the way we cook and prepare foods in the kitchen. An air fryer is a machine that is said to fry delicious dishes without having to use cooking oil that could make you fat or unhealthy

It works by cooking your food using super heated air that it circulates within its chamber. A fan inside the air fryer helps circulate the hot air and help the air fryer create a reaction called the Maillard Effect.

Maillard effect, named after the French chemist Louis-Camille Maillard, is chemical reaction characterized by the bonding of amino acids and reducing sugars.

This chemical reaction is most notably known on how it gives browned food its unique taste and aroma. Some examples of browned foods are biscuits, bread, steaks, fried dumplings, and much more.

A quick look into Airfryers' bio

Due to our changing and fast-paced lifestyles, people are finding less and less time to prepare healthy and nutritious dishes. They needed a machine that could cook them food that is not just convenient but also healthy.

Alongside with the fact that processed foods and fast foods are getting fatter and fatter, people needed a way to prepare meals that are not only nutritious but also low in fat and cholesterol. Thus, the air fryer was born!

The first Airyfryer

In the third quarter of 2010, Philips Electronics Company introduced to the world an appliance like no other, a first of its kind. With Philips’ current motto “Innovation & You”, they had certainly taken into account the needs of Philips’ customers and innovated with it.

Philips Electronics Co., claim that the dishes that are cooked with the Air Fryer contain up to 80% less fat. That is a massive decrease from the grease that you ingest every time you eat oily foods such as French fries, chips, and much more.

The company also claims that the appliance is not only limited to cooking dishes and entrees but also desserts such as cakes, cookies, and more.

On-going growth

Ever since then, the Philips Air Fryer had hardly changed their design or their features. It is a testament that the first one was as god as it can get and that it can already perfectly serve its purpose without having to reinvent.

Philips boasts the convenience, economical, and ergonomic benefits of the Air Fryer, which is why dozens of companies worldwide had then tried to replicate the success that the original Philip Air Fryer is.

Some similar products that have since popped up in the market are the Go Wise USA Air fryer and the Avalon Air fryer. All of which have advantages and disadvantages compared to their competitions, and the first Philips Air fryer.
