One of the most difficult challenges that every housewife has to face is to make a great dish yet still healthy. However, the method we use to cook our food somehow naturally affects our health. Example, Deep- frying.
I found out about a cookware that can help us solve this headache issue. This device uses a small amount of oil but still get us the best frying result. Some of you might have heard about it. It is the Air Fryer. The brand I mention in this article is GoWISE USA GW22638 8-in-1 2.0 Electric Air Fryer with Digital Programmable Cooking Settings.
When you try to make a fried dish, you have to use a large amount of oil to make it interestingly crispy enough to eat. This oil will, of course, be absorbed into your food and put your family at a risk of heart disease many other health problems. The leftover oil, which I pretty sure would be a large amount, also gains toxic if you leave it overnight. The frying process can make your house smell like a restaurant, too.
If your family is so in love with fried dishes such as chicken, sausages, fish and much more, you should consider this product. However, if you intend to fry a large amount of food, it might not work well, hence you have to fry separately with small parts.
Let’s delve into how the air fryer works.
This cookware is based on the flow of heated air. There is a powerful fan guaranteeing the air circulate inside the device and cook all your food. The part used to heat the air can be considered like a convention oven. All these things are combined to serve us the best fried food without worrying about the negative impact on our health.
You can fry without oil, too but I recommend using 1-2 spoons of oil to make all the potatoes and chickens crispier.
This air fryer is extremely suitable for busy people. Before, I had to wait 30-60 minutes or even one night for the food to be thawed. With this fryer, now I just put all the frozen fare inside and push a button, then the air fryer will finish everything else. It is not only beneficial to our health but also is a game changer in our busy life.
It is also really safe in the cooking process. You don’t have to worry about your children with all the hot pans and boiling oil things. Children now can do themselves fried chicken wings in just about 15-20 minutes.
Below I will give you some features that I found out about this air fryer:
3.7 Quart Capacity
Timer (up to 30 minutes)
Adjustable Temperature Control
8 Cooking Pre-sets
1500W – 120V, 60Hz
This GOWISE 8 in 1 electric air fryer gives us a capacity of 3.7 quarts, which equals up to 4 portions of French fries, 3-4 chicken drumsticks, 4-5 chicken wings or 2 pieces of pork chops. If your family consume more, you can consider the 10.5qt Gowise turbo air fryer, which is larger and more comfortable for frying.
To name 8 settings respectively, they are warm-up, chips, chicken, steak, meat, cake, and fish. These are all programmed so that you can just press the button and all the temperatures and time issue won’t become big troubles anymore longer.
Temperature and Time
If you are not fond of with the auto settings, you can still stick with the manual choices.
The cookware sets the minimum temperature is 176 degrees Fahrenheit, and the maximum one is up to 392 degrees. Every food from frozen to fried can be processed completely well under this range. It gives you full flexibility to cook whatever you want.
The maximum time is 30 minutes. Some might question if the air fryer cooks everything longer than usual, it does. However, we usually cook in this device for about 1 or 2 serving, so you don’t have to worry about the time because it will be much shorter.
One plus point is that you can stop the cooking process right in the middle to give the food a shake or something. Some other appliance doesn’t allow us to do this when the device is running.
There is an ETL mark in the product showing that this has reached the safety standards. And as my practical use, it shows me many relieved points.
First is that this fryer’s handle is not heated up during the cooking process, so that we can freely move the basket anytime we want.
The automatic program runs quite safely, too as I tried to remove the basket once when it hasn’t reached the target time, and the whole system went off completely. It totally switches off itself whenever we remove the basket from the drawer or the cooking process has been done. We don’t have to pay much attention as deep frying but still no overcooked accidents.
There is a guard button on the stay-cool handle, which keeps the release button inside. If you want to detach the basket from the pan, you have to slide the guard upwards and then the button that time will be revealed. This decrease the risk of falling off baskets and make sure our food is kept in a closed system.
Cooking basket and Pan
The cookware is equipped with a removable drip pan and a detachable metal cooking basket ( 8” x 8” x3”), which are made of iron with non-stick surface coating. The basket helps us a lot in shaking the food inside because of the solid walls.
If you use this machine, you need to shake your food halfway of the process to make sure it will fry evenly and your food can gain a beautiful golden brown color after all.
A feature that I am really satisfied is that it only has 1 basket. Every time I try to fry a different kind of food at the same time, it becomes a real struggle. In contrast, the Philips one offers 2 layers so that we can fry separate food.
If you are using GoWISE USA Air Fryer GW22611 & GW22612 Air Fryer as well as the 2nd and 4th generation Gowise air fryers, you can consider buying a baking pan for some liquid or semi-liquid foods.
Easy to use
Have 8 different cooking options
Automatically switch off when the food is done
Can be washed in the dishwasher
A recipe handbook is included.
Can’t see the food from the outside
Have to pay additional costs for accessories ( like baking pan, etc)
This device is so dishwasher-friendly. All the things you can put into your dishwasher are the removable iron metal cooking basket, the Calphalon non-stick coating, and the basket holder.
One of some small tips that I use to get a quicker cleaning is soaking everything in hot water immediately after cooking. By this, when you get back from your meals, there is just a bit grease left and it is much easier for cleaning.
Adding that you should not use scrubs with the basket since all the small wires can get stuck in the corners and nobody want to spend more time to take them all out.
I scoured the Internet and also found many positive reviews on this product. It can do almost every fried dish from Chicken, French fries, to frozen foods and tater tots. The most impressive thing that people say about this is that there is no oil, which I believe is also the issue that you’re looking for.
1.VonShef 2.3QT (2.2L) Air Fryer 1230W
If you want to save space in your kitchen, you can consider The VonShef. It has a popular air fryer size of 2.3-quart basket. Furthermore, it can push the maximum heat up to 400F and still bring the warmness and crispiness to our food even when it only uses 1230W of energy. One more good point is that it won’t affect your energy cost. Save money, save energy still serve delicious food. However, it is lack of pre-cooking setting times.
If you are seeking for your large meal cooked in a short time, you should meet TFal. Its capacity is much bigger than the GOWISE one. With one teaspoon of oil, you can cook up to 2.2 pounds of food! Interesting enough, it is truly lightweight. So small but a real beast.
I believe Airfryer is a trend in modern cooking nowadays. It is a must-have item that can help us quickly deal with every deep-fry meal perfectly, even with a large amount of food. The cooking process will be no longer a burden to our housewife, and you won’t have to worry about oil issues anymore, too.

Philly Cheesesteak Jalapeño Poppers Recipe
Prep Time: 30 minutes Cook Time: 45 minutes Level of Difficulty: Easy Serving Size: 24 poppers via foodrepublic.com
Photo: Mark Shaw
1/2 pound ground beef 1/2 yellow onion finely chopped 1/4 pound aged provolone, coarsely shredded 8 ounces Philadelphia cream cheese, softened salt and pepper to taste 24 jalapeños, tops and seeds removed 3 eggs beaten canola or vegetable oil, for frying
Heat a large heavy pan over medium heat, then cook the ground beef until fully browned, breaking up chunks with a wooden spoon.
Remove ground beef to a layer of paper towels using a slotted spoon, and drain off all but a tablespoon of the fat. Allow the beef to cool to room temperature.
Add chopped onions to the hot fat and fry until lightly caramelized, about 8-10 minutes. Remove from pan and allow to cool completely.
When beef and onions are cool, mix them with the cream cheese and provolone until just combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Carefully fill each hollowed-out jalapeño using a small spoon and leave at least 1/2-inch of room from the top.
Dip each jalapeño in the beaten egg making sure to get some inside the top opening, then very gently roll in breadcrumbs making sure to press some inside the opening, creating a plug. Since the outside of jalapeños are smooth and slippery, the poppers may require more than one coat of breadcrumbs to really make them adhere.
Heat enough oil for deep-frying in a large pot over medium heat, about 360 degrees.
Fry poppers in batches being careful not to overcrowd the pot or fryer until deep golden-brown, about 3-5 minutes.
Remove from fryer, drain on paper towels and allow to cool slightly before eating.

Sausage and Sauerkraut Fritter Recipe
Prep Time: 35 minutes plus refrigeration time Cook Time: 45 minutes Level of Difficulty: Easy Serving Size: 24 via foodrepublic.com
Photo: Jeremy Nolan
Ingredients 1 bag fresh sauerkraut, drained 1 large smoked sausage (Bauernwurst or Kielbasa) 4 slices thick-cut smoked bacon 2 tablespoons spicy mustard 1 cup Gruyere 8 eggs 1 cup breadcrumbs For the breading 3 cups flour 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 3 cups breadcrumbs For the sauce 1 cup mayonnaise 2 tablespoons honey 1/2 cup whole grain mustard
For the fritters:
Cut the bacon and sausage into small pieces.
Heat a medium sized frying pan on medium heat. Add the bacon and sausage and cook for 4-5 minutes or until the bacon is slightly crispy.
Remove from the heat and let cool completely. You can keep the bacon fat that remains in the pan and add it to the mixture to add flavor.
In a large mixing bowl, mix together the drained sauerkraut, mustard, breadcrumbs, 6 eggs and cheese.
When the bacon and sausage is cool, add it to the sauerkraut mixture and mix well. The mixture should be a little firm. Add a little more breadcrumbs to form a nice tight mixture.
Take three bowls, large enough to fit the a few of the fritters into, and keep them separate. Add the flour, salt, and pepper to one bowl, 2 beaten eggs to the second bowl and the breadcrumbs to the third bowl, and keep your bowls in this order.
Take a few of the fritters, place in flour, and roll them around to coat all sides well.
Next, dip the fritters into the egg, coating all sides, then remove to the bowl with the breadcrumbs.
Roll them in the breadcrumbs and place on a plate while you do the others.
Once you get all of them breaded you should place them in the refrigerator for at least in hour. Overnight is even better. You want them to be very cold so that they stay together easily.
Using a large Dutch oven or small stockpot, heat up the oil to 350º F. If you don’t have a thermometer just take a little piece of breadcrumb and drop it into the pan. If it sizzles, then it’s ready.
Add the fritters one at a time leaving enough room for them to float around. If you put too many in at the same time the oil will cool too fast and the fritters will come out greasy and undercooked.
Fry the fritters in the oil for about 5 – 6 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, carefully remove them and place on a plate lined with a paper towel. Continue to fry them until all of them are done.
For the Dipping Sauce: In a small mixing bowl, combine the mayonnaise, honey, and mustard and mix well.
Ingredients 1 gallon peanut oil 1 cup turkey chili’s, preferably Trader Joe’s 1/2 cup water 1 cup buttermilk 1/2 cup pale ale 1 tablespoon white sugar (optional) 1 jalapeno pepper, diced with ribs and seeds removed (optional) 1 cup yellow cornmeal 1 cup all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons sea salt 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1 teaspoon chili powder 8 links Andouille sausage 1 cup cornstarch
For the batter:
In a blender or food processor, purée the chili with the water. Transfer to a medium bowl and add the buttermilk, beer, sugar, if using, and jalapeño, if using. Stir to combine.
In another medium bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cayenne pepper, and chili powder.
Add the chili mixture to the flour mixture, stirring just enough to bring the batter together; there should be lumps. Set aside for 10 minutes.
For the corn dogs:
Before you start coating and frying, set up your work area.
Pierce each sausage with a skewer or chopstick, set aside.
Pour the cornstarch into a pie plate or casserole dish. Roll each skewered sausage in cornstarch, tapping it lightly to remove the excess. Set the coated sausages on a wire rack set over newspaper or paper towels.
Prepare your deep-fryer according to the instructions or fill a high-sided, heavy-bottomed Dutch oven or 12-inch skillet (preferably cast-iron) halfway with oil (about 3 inches) and heat to 375F. (Use a candy thermometer to take the oil temperature.)
Fill two large drinking glasses three-quarters full with the batter.
Working 2 at a time, quickly dip a sausage into each glass and immediately and carefully place them into the hot oil. Fry the corn dogs until the coating is golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes, turning halfway through.
Using tongs, remove the sausages one at a time from the oil and place them on the wire rack to drain for 3 to 5 minutes. Repeat until all the sausages are fried.

One at a time, holding by the tail, dredge the shrimp into the flour and pat off excess. Dip into the batter and then roll in the coconut pressing down lightly to adhere. Place on a baking sheet and repeat until all the shrimp are covered.
Heat 2 cups of canola oil in a 12-inch frying pan, preferably cast iron, over medium-high heat. Test the oil using the end of a wooden spoon — when it bubbles it’s ready.
One at a time, carefully lay the shrimp into the oil and fry in batches until golden brown turning once, about 2 minutes per side. The shrimp will be tightly curled when fully cooked.
Drain on layers of paper towel, and serve immediately with the sauce.
In a wok or pan, heat the two tablespoons of vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add the pork, ginger, garlic, pepper flakes, and soy sauce.
Stir fry the pork until it is no longer pink and all the liquid has evaporated, about 5-6 minutes.
Add the carrots and coconut flakes and mix thoroughly. Remove from the heat and cool completely.
To assemble the egg rolls, put a tablespoon of the filling at the bottom corner of the wrapper. Lift the bottom and roll halfway. Fold the sides into the middle and continue to roll until you reach the tip. Use the egg wash to seal the ends. Make sure to cover the wrappers you are not using with a damp kitchen towel so they don’t dry out.
Heat oil to 350 degrees and fry egg rolls until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.
Drain on paper towels. Serve the egg rolls immediately with the sweet and sour sauce.

Air fryers are all the rage in cooking. Have you seen one of the many advertisements and wondered, “How does an air fryer work?” Are you curious about the health of an air fryer? Worry no more! You have landed on the right page to answer all of your air frying questions.
If the term “air fryer” sounds like a lot of hot air, your speculations are exactly right! An air fryer is simply a revolutionized kitchen appliance for cooking food through the circulation of superheated air. It is a new invention from Philips that offers healthy, tasty foods with less oil.
Do the fries taste deep-fried?
“Look – nothing is going to replace that deep-fried taste, so no, they don’t,” said Ramsay honestly.
“But, the Airfryer uses a tablespoon of oil and the chips come out crisp on the outside and tender on the inside – they’re a healthier version, and they taste great.“
Air fryers use Rapid Air Technology to cook any type of food that you would otherwise dunk in deep fat. This new technology works by circulating air to high degrees, up to 200C, to “fry” foods such as fish, chips, pastries, chicken, and more. This Rapid Air Technology is bringing in a new era of cooking appliances and a new generation of cooking methods altogether. Air fryers render foods perfectly browned and crisp with less fat – up to 80 percent less, as compared to traditional cooking methods
Rapid Air Technology: A New Generation of Cooking Equipment.
An air fryer’s cooking chamber radiates heat from a heating element close to the food, thus cooking it more efficiently and appropriately. The exhaust fan located above the cooking chamber helps to provide the required airflow from the underside. This allows the heated air to constantly pass through the food. Consequently, every part of the food receives the same heating temperature. Using only a fan and grill helps the air fryer to blast hot air at a high speed, achieving the healthy qualities that you will undoubtedly notice when eating air fried food. It is a simple yet innovative method of cooking.
Similar to a rice cooker, an air fryer has a wide removable tray. It serves up a hot, crisp meal within 12 minutes. Though it may seem “fried” because of the crispy quality, the food cooked in an air fryer is actually healthier and reduced in calories. Philips CEO Pieter Nota said, “At Philips, we develop advanced solutions that help contribute to people’s health and well-being.” Anything you can think of, from chicken to chips to fish can be made healthier in an air fryer because its cooking method requires very little fat. For instance, a batch of chips only calls for half a spoonful of oil and 12 minutes to serve perfectly crispy potatoes.
Similarly, an air fryer will give you hamburgers, steaks, and French fries in just a few minutes. You’ll be amazed, but in just 25 minutes, you can bake an entire cake in an air fryer!
The exhaust system controls the temperature that is increased by internal pressure and emits extra air as needed to cook the food. The extra air is thoroughly filtered before being released, thus being better to the environment. Air fryers are both user and environment-friendly – harmless and odorless!
->> Oil less fryer with 70% Less Oil.
Do not be afraid of the superheated air that is used to cook food in an air fryer. Each comes with its own cooling system, including a fan mounted on a motor axis to control the internal temperature. This fan ensures that the environment inside the air fryer stays clean and healthy. The cooling system allows fresh air to pass through the filters and proceed to the bottom of the fryer. Allowing the passage of fresh air from top to bottom helps the air fryer to cool its internal parts.
What is air frying?
The air fryer’s benefits are endless. It helps users who are nervous when using a traditional chip pan and protects them from fire or burning. Its cooling systems and controlled temperature allow it to protect itself. Better tasting food, healthier meals, friendlier to the environment – we could go on and on. Try ad air fryer for yourself and discover even more benefits!
Air fryer Brief History
Air fryers were first launched in Australia and Europe in 2010, followed by North America and Japan. Today, they are a staple of the modern kitchen.
