Air fryers usages hot air to cook food whereas food streamers use steam. Manufacturers of both kitchen appliance types — claim for cooking food with 80% less oil. Which one should you buy if you need 80% less oil content in your food?
Air Fryer is more in demand than Food Steamer. In a comparison of nine models of Air Fryer, there is only one food steamer in the market. This is just a rough estimate to explain to you.
Less demand means home appliance brands are least interested in launching new food steamers with innovative and convenient features. I just searched on Amazon and Flipkart. There are only a few food steamers. On the other hand, hundreds of new air fryer models are on sale.
► Air Fryer Food Taste vs. Steamer Food Taste
I found food cooked in Air Fryer testier than one cooked in Food Steamer. Air Fryer makes food items crispy on the outside while juicy on the inside. This is my opinion. You can choose to ignore it.
A food steamer basically boils a food item. Air Fryer, whereas, usages water inside the ingredients to cook them. All living things including fruits and vegetables have 30 to 80% water in their body. Air Fryer smartly uses water to cook them. It makes more sense to use water inside the things than using steam from outside.
You will be annoyed if you eat food cooked in a Food steamer every day. Air Fryer contrarily is an excellent solution to make something crispy and lite, every day, two-three times a day.
Guest-Friendly: – Considering the taste of food cooked in a food steamer, I do not think you can serve them to guests. If the guest is unwanted, or unwelcome, then a Food steamer is the best kitchen appliance to cook launch and dinner for him every day as long as he stays.
► Should you buy an Air Fryer?
You should not be doing crazy things if you do not earn your living because of your good physique and beauty. For good health invest in a practical solution, which is doable every day, and you can continue with it without any habitation. In my opinion, a food steamer is not the right solution for cooking food every day whereas Air Fryer is.
The food steamer boils food, so its role in the kitchen is limited. Air Fryer, however, could be an excellent addition to your kitchen. Use Gas Cooktop to make the main course and Air Fryer for making side dishes with 80% less oil.
Instead of buying an air fryer, you should buy Samsung’s microwave oven which comes with SLIM FRY technology. This technology does the same thing that an Air Fryer claims to do, cooking food with 80% less oil. Your Samsung Microwave Oven will work in two ways. One day you make oily food and the next day non-oily food. This way you can maintain the right balance. Always invest in multipurpose Kitchen appliances and avoid over-loading your kitchen area.
