Découvrir la Friteuse à Air : Une Révolution dans la Cuisine Moderne

What is an Air Fryer?

An air fryer is an electric kitchen appliance that cooks food by circulating hot air around it. This process mimics the effect of frying, but without requiring a large amount of oil. The results are foods that are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.

The Benefits of the Air Fryer

  • Healthier Cooking: Significantly reduces the amount of fat compared to traditional frying.
  • Versatility: Capable of frying, grilling, roasting and even baking certain types of pastries.
  • Ease of Use and Cleaning: Often equipped with removable baskets and non-stick surfaces.
  • Speed: Faster cooking than a traditional oven.
