Enter air fryers -- appliances that promise the taste, texture, and golden-brown color of oil-fried foods without all the fat and calories. Air fryers are square or egg-shaped devices, about the size of a coffee maker, that sit on your countertop.
You put the food you want to fry -- chopped potatoes, chicken nuggets, zucchini slices -- into a slide-out basket. As the food cooks, a container below the basket catches any grease that drops.
Bottom line: Air fryers create the crispy, chewy foods people love without all the oil. Some models also have toast and bake settings, making them more like conventional ovens.
One downside of many of these devices is their small basket size, which leaves little room to cook an entire family meal. This cooking method might also cut down on some other harmful effects of oil frying.
The reaction that happens when you fry potatoes or other starchy foods makes the chemical acrylamide, which research links to greater chances of getting cancer. In one study, air frying of fish raised the amount of a substance called cholesterol oxidation products” (Cops).
Cops form when the cholesterol in meat or fish breaks down during cooking. One way to lower the amount of Cops when you air fry fish, the study shows, is to add fresh parsley, chives, or a mixture of the two.
Research shows these herbs act as antioxidants to reduce the Cops in air-fried foods. Air frying also appears to curb the omega-3 fatty acids in fish.
That gives fried foods their satisfying crunch on the outside while keeping the inside moist. Frying also gives foods a rich, dark color that is pleasing to the eye.
One study that compared oil frying with air frying found the two methods led to foods with a similar color and moisture content, but different textures and sensory qualities. If you crowd the small basket too much, your food may cook unevenly, giving you some crunchy and some soggy spots.

Here, 10 tips from frying expert Chris Sell, chef and owner of ChipS hop in Brooklyn, New York, to help you master your deep-frying technique and get comfortable with one of the tastiest cooking methods out there. You might be tempted to use extra-virgin olive oil, but with its low smoke point and distinctive flavor, it's not your best option.
Instead, Sell advises using vegetable oil because it has a high smoke point, a neutral flavor and is super economical. Peanut and grape seed oils are two other options that have neutral flavors and high smoke points.
A dedicated deep fryer is much, much safer than using a big pot, according to Sell, and you can find a good one for under $50. If you don't have a deep fryer and are an experienced home cook, you can use a large and deep heavy-bottomed pot like a cast iron Dutch oven.
Whether you're planning to deep-fry fish or a Twinkle, dredging your food in flour is a key first step. For savory fried foods, you can simply add salt and pepper to the flour, but feel free to experiment with other spices like gram masala for an Indian-style take.
As for sweet fried foods, you can add sugar or cocoa powder to the flour, but don't forget the salt. Fried foods should have a wonderfully crisp outer layer and the best way to get one is with the right batter.
His favorite batter is just five ingredients (flour, baking soda, malt vinegar, salt and water), but there are a few things to keep in mind: For the best possible result, start by making sure that your ingredients are absolutely fresh.
Try mixing in cayenne pepper or hot sauce if you like spicy food or throw in some curry powder if you're frying up cauliflower, for example. For a dessert, try adding cocoa powder or chocolate syrup to the batter.
Or mix up a cake batter for an over-the-top deep -fired peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Skip the fork and use a whisk to combine your ingredients or “beat the heck out of them” as Sell says.
The whisk will help you incorporate as much air as possible which will make the batter light and airy. If you're using a pot to deep-fry, use your digital thermometer to keep an eye on the temperature of the oil.
Before you start deep-frying out of a pot, there are a few items that you should have handy, preferably on the countertop where you are working. Also, keep a box of baking soda close by and if needed, pours on the powder with a heavy hand.
High temperatures ensure that the batter reacts and creates a barrier between the oil and the food. At his restaurant, Sell uses a basket to strain the food and most deep fryers will come with this feature.
After deep -frying, if you peel away and discard the fried batter, “you'll have a more flavorful steamed product,” says Sell. According to the New York City's Department of Environmental Protection, cooking oil and grease should be disposed of with your trash.
