Air Fryer Buying Guide

Mastering the Art of Healthy Cooking

You may remember at around the same time we were all baking banana bread and Zoom quizzes were the height of our social calendars, there was another player on the rise: the air fryer. Sales soared during lockdown, but whilst thankfully those days are behind us, the air fryer has retained its “best newcomer” status in the world of kitchen appliances and continues to trend on social media, with an abundance of recipes to try.

Read on to learn more about air fryers and why they could be just what you need.

What is an air fryer?

Air fryers combine the versatility of an oven with the results of a deep fat fryer. The food sits in a basket, maximising surface area for even cooking, and a powerful fan circulates hot air producing an oh-so-crispy finish. They heat up rapidly and require minimal oil, giving you delicious, healthier food quickly and easily.

Is there room in my life (and kitchen!) for an air fryer?

When we’re busy and tired, preparing good food is often the first thing to drop off the list. Air fryers are a fast, convenient and fuss-free way of cooking so you can still enjoy delicious meals even when pushed for time. SIA air fryers have dishwasher safe components too, to make life that bit easier.

At SIA we understand that kitchen surface space comes at a premium, and the battle of the appliances is a very real thing. SIA air fryers come in different sizes, from our 8L Dual Zone Air Fryer to our 4L SIA Air Fryer, so you can pick the one that best fits your space and the number of mouths to feed.

Space isn’t the only factor to consider when deciding who gets to stay on the worktop; appearance is also important. SIA air fryers are sleek and modern, yet simple and easy to use (no spaceships here), so they will fit your aesthetic and look good on display. They are also easy to move, so if you want to rearrange your kitchen, you won't be restricted by a large object. Hey, you could even take it on holiday or to university with you!

What can you cook in an air fryer?

Meat, fish, veg, carbs, even desserts. A quick Google suggests the sky's the limit, with chips, pizza and chicken being some of the most popular suggestions. Kale sealed the deal for me, transforming the often sad, soggy vegetable into a crunchy delight. SIA air fryers have 8 pre-set programmes to make life even easier and give you excellent results every time.

Are they worth the price?

SIA offers different air fryers to suit your budget. Needless to say, the more you use it the better value it will be, but we are sure it will soon become a firm favourite. Research shows that air fryers are very energy efficient, making them a purse and planet friendly choice.

We hope this has been a useful guide. Take a look at the range of SIA air fryers and welcome delicious convenience into your life.
