American Micronic 3.2 Litre Air Fryer – My Pick
I have learned one big secret of healthy life is bitter is better. However, also true is the fact that we cannot live without tasty foods. In today’s lifestyle, most of us live a healthy life only up to a certain age. Recently, I had taken a hard decision to drink less sugar in tea and coffee to prevent any sugar related health complications. Going a step further, now time for me is to take few more steps to keep my heart healthy to live longer.
To keep a heart healthy, reducing oil contain from food is one effective way besides Yoga and morning walk.
Use an Air Fryer for Testy and Oil Free Food
Use of an Air Fryer is much better idea to reduce oil without compromising food taste. An Air Fryer can easily cook veg or non-veg dishes or morning snacks without oil. For a healthy life, you have to consume at least one to two tablespoons of oil a day. Therefore, I find an Air Fryer is the most suitable way to cook food, as it requires almost 90% less oil during an entire cooking process (only one tablespoon).
What can we cook in this?
One simple answer to this question is – almost everything. Grilled chicken, Poori, Samosa, french fries, Brinjal Chokha, Choco cake and many more delicious dishes without making lots of noise in the Kitchen.
Without assistance from a recipe book, for the first time users, Air fryer cooking turns out to be a big mess. The brand ships a recipe book in the sales box. It helps cook well for a perfect dish.
Built and Design
Built quality of this gadget is much better than what the Lifelong Air Fryer offers. Moreover, it looks very stylish almost close to a Philips Air Fryer. Besides a handle for the non-stick basket, there are two control knobs for setting time and temperature.

Capacity, Performance, and Power
If you are the first time user, then hold yourself well because you need at least three to four cooking attempts to understand the entire process. I took about a week to become comfortable with my Philips Air Fryer.
The American Micronic Air Fryer has a capacity of 3.2 Litre, which makes it an ideal choice for bachelor or a small family with three to five members. It follows Turbo Tunnel Air Flow technology to cook. With this efficient gadget, you get full freedom to test and try many dishes at home.

Lifelong HealthyFry 2.6 L
Lifelong is not a reputed brand like Philips, Prestige, or Preethi. Understand it as some desi brand imports goods from China and sales in India under “Lifelong” nametag. Buying any Lifelong product carries a risk of poor quality built and possibly no service in case it stops working.
However, here is a catch. In terms of service agreement, Lifelong does not offer service rather a replacement guarantee up to two years from the date of purchase. This is fine, but to get a replacement, you need to mail at [email protected]. I detect a problem here. The domain lifelongindia.com belongs to a company making auto components for Indian automobile brands.
Recently, we had done a review of a Lifelong griller, which was really a good quality product. Therefore, we are not saying avoid products of this unknown brand completely rather spend some time in search of a branded alternative if possible. We are on this product just because of huge readers demand.
The Lifelong Air Fryer will do everything expected out of a Philips Air Fryer. Its price tag of 4000 rupees is attractive, which is why currently it is the best seller at Amazon and Flipkart.
2-year full replacement Warranty claim
After the price, one biggest catchy feature is two years of replacement warranty. I do not know how supporting the brand is in order to fulfill the claim. You can reach out the brand at http://www.lifelongindiaonline.com/product/air-fryer/

Two Knob Control
To control this Air Fryer, there are two knobs –one for setting temperature and another to set time. You can set exactly what temperature and how long a process will run. If you are not sure about it, then receive the help of the official recipe book.
For the first time users, the recipe book in the sales box is a big support. Let me explain how many dished are choreographed in the recipe book to make your everyday food very tasty even without oil.

I do not find the brand very trust worthy.
For a while, let us leave aside the brand authenticity. I must say the Lifelong HealthyFry 2.6L is one most desirable product available online. It is cheaper and does exactly what we expect from a 10000 rupees Air Fryer from popular brand like Philips.
