We start off our list of the most popular kitchen machines with the air fryer. Air fryers are different from deep fryers in the sense that it doesn’t boil the foot in hot oil – it cooks the food in hot circulating oil. This allows it to use 70-80% less oil than the deep fryer. When cooking with this kitchen machine, you might need to shake the basket occasionally to prevent it sticking and to cook evenly. Shaking it once should be enough but for some food that tends to stick, you might have to shake it every 2-4 minutes to prevent the food from sticking to the basket. Air fryers have the ability to cook multiple dishes at a go and they are quite convenient to use. When you’re looking to buy an air fryer, make sure the kitchen outlet where you’ll plug it in can support the kind of wattage they require.
2. Deep Fryer
A deep fryer allows you to cook multiple food items by boiling them in hot oil. They tend to come in a number of capacity and have large frying baskets. Depending on the frying capacity, you should be able to fry chicken pretty quickly especially if you have the eight cups or more frying capacity. Some large fryers come with enough space to fry a whole chicken. What you will find with a deep fryer is their flexibility. They often come with rotating baskets. Deep fryers with rotating baskets heat up the food in small quantities of oil while dipping the basket in and out of the oil occasionally. These types of frying baskets are quite effective but they are not perfect for all types of good as some food requires a large amount of oil to be used to cook them. Another feature that you will enjoy with deep fryers is the fryer temperature control which allows you to choose the necessary temperature level needed to cook any food that you want rather than having them undercooked or overcooked.
3. Stand Mixer
With its powerful motors and large capacity bowl, stand mixers are way more powerful and effective than using hand mixers. Depending on what you need and the number of people that might have to consume the baked meal, which will decide the capacity of the mixer that you buy. Stand mixers are so important for the modern day kitchen – they offer up to 10-12 speeds with three attachments for a whisk, dough hook, and beater. The best part is that some come with a timer feature so you don’t have to guess for how long you need to beat the dough before you stop. Great tool to have in your kitchen in 2020.
