If you’ve been searching for a healthier yet equally delicious alternative to traditional frying, your search ends here. Our steam air fryers are the epitome of innovation, blending the goodness of steam cooking with the crispiness of air frying.
The result? A gastronomic adventure that’s as nutritious as it is delectable.
How Do Steam Air Fryers Work?
Steam air fryers are an ingenious blend of two well-regarded cooking technologies: steam and air frying. They work by circulating hot air around the food placed in the frying basket, similar to traditional air fryers. However, what sets steam air fryers apart is their ability to inject steam during the cooking process. This dual-action allows for a healthier cooking method, ensuring your food is cooked thoroughly while retaining moisture often lost in conventional air frying. This is especially useful when cooking foods that tend to dry out quickly or require a certain level of tenderness.
Here’s a breakdown of how it works:
Steam Phase: When you start cooking, the steam air fryer releases steam to soften and cook the food from the inside, keeping it moist.
Air Frying Phase: The appliance switches to air frying mode after steaming. It circulates hot air around the food to cook it, giving the outside a crispy texture, similar to traditional frying but with much less oil.
