I have been seeing a lot of Philips air fryer reviews lately. It was said that this fairly new product provides a healthier option to deep-frying by using 80% less fat when cooking food. I absolutely love fried food myself, but a healthier and less messy way of frying sounded too good to be true to me. Still, I decided to try it out myself.
My first reaction to the air fryer was that it was very heavy despite how it looks. After cooking with it for the first time, though, I noticed how convenient and quiet it was, only making a real sound to announce when the food is done cooking.
Some of the best features of the air fryer include adjustable temperature control, a built-in timer, a food separator accessory that will allow you to cook several types of food at once, and patented Rapid Air technology, which combines hot air and a grill component to fry the food in a healthier manner. It also has an integrated air filter that reduces unwanted odors and vapors.
I was very excited to start cooking with my air fryer, especially because it came with a recipe book that would help me on my journey. My first attempt was to make pigs in blankets. Generally speaking, each batch of these sausages will take 10 minutes to cook in an air fryer and you will end up with nice and crispy pigs in blankets that are delicious when dipped in your favorite brand of tomato sauce.
I also made a second batch, which consisted of smaller versions, and they were even better. The recipe called for mustard to be spread onto the pasty before putting the sausages in. I also tried dipping it in barbecue sauce instead of tomato sauce, which tasted great.
