Air fryers are a huge trend in cooking, especially if you’re making fried food or snacks healthier. However, they can do so much more than that, and in most cases, they do it more efficiently than other appliances.
Here are some of the ways an air fryer saves energy:
Air Fryers Use Less Time to Cook
For the most part, air fryers save time over using a conventional oven. For example, frying chicken using an oven uses about 45 minutes, while an air fryer will take closer to 30. French fries take about 20 minutes to cook in an air fryer and 30 minutes in an oven.
The less time is spent cooking, the less electricity you’ll use doing it.
They Have Reduced Preheating Time
Ovens don’t just take longer to cook food. They also need time to preheat, which can take anywhere from 5-15 minutes, depending on the cooking temperature.
When ovens preheat, they use as much, if not more, energy as they do when cooking. Air fryers have a much shorter preheating time because they’re so much smaller than ovens.
Air Fryers Emit Less Heat
When you cook using your oven and stove, both of these appliances emit a great deal of heat, which makes your HVAC system work harder to cool down your home.
Air fryers use sealed cooking compartments, which allow them to cook faster and also ensure that less heat leaks out. This makes the appliance itself more efficient and helps you save on overall energy costs.
They Use Less Energy than Other Appliances
Air fryers have conventional ovens and stoves beat when it comes to cooking air fryer-friendly recipes.
It may surprise you to know that they also use less energy than other popular appliances like convection ovens and deep fryers! Depending on what you’re cooking, they may even be more energy efficient than the Instant Pot.
