Oil Less Revolution
Fried chicken nuggets, french fries with crispy onion rings, roasted shrimps etc. are all comfort foods. Is there a way to enjoy all these comfort foods without feeling uncomfortable about the additional calories coming as an added baggage with these delicious foods?
The answer is yes. After a lot of research and advancement in technology, a generation of oil less fryers have come up which do not use a pint of oil or fat, but keep the flavors and aromas of the food being cooked, while leaving the outer skin of the food crisp and the inner stuff juicy, moist and tasty. In the beginning no such technology was available, but in the last decade, precisely the last seven to eight years, the usage of oil less fryers are increasing spell bound and they are slowly and steadily giving away the traditional methods of frying and cooking.
What’s The Deal About Oil Less Cooking?
The technology used in such oil free fryers is one of three kinds – halogen, convection and infrared heating. Basically most of the oil less fryers work by heating the air in the fryer up to a certain degree with the help of convection, halogen or infrared methods of heating and then encircling the heated air around the food being cooked so that the different layers of the food are cooked appropriately. The halogen technology uses the heat of itself to cook the surface of the food which makes the surface brown, roasted and flavorsome. After that convection method heats up the air which then gently encircles the entire food which is cooking and fastens up the entire process. The infrared method does the most wonderful job of radiating gentle but firm waves which not only cooks the food from inside out but also keeps the flavors and the aromas of the food intact.
All sorts of food can be cooked in an oil less fryer combining the three technologies described above – from toasting breads, frying chicken or fish to steaming vegetables and also desserts. And all that can be done that without the unhealthy substitutes like oil or fat. Moreover no thawing or pre heating is required in such oil free fryers thus you are saving time too.
As already mentioned that the time consumed can be lowered by twenty to thirty five percent, the oil proportions can be minimized up to eighty percent and the electricity can also be saved by almost fifty percent since the time consumed is shortened. The entire cost savings of frying and roasting food including oil comes up to 50%.
All the safety hazards like spilling of oil, splattering of hot food, smoke and fire etc. are negated while using an oil less fryer since the outer surface of such fryers are always made of materials like hard plastic or stainless steel and are cool to touch, while the inner cooking sanctum of these fryers is enclosed with a lid and thus no hot stuff like liquid or food can come in contact with the skin. Moreover, since it runs of electricity danger of fire or smoke is significantly reduced too.
Considering all these amazing utilities and awesome features of oil less fryers, it is no wonder why their usage is increasing spell bound. So if one wants to experience a safe, quick and tasty cooking experience, a warm recommendation is to try oil less fryers.
