Mention the term ‘airfryer’ to an Aussie and their response will likely range from “WTF is that?” to “Is that the thing people use to make potato chips?” Unlike our counterparts in the US, the kitchen gadget just isn’t really a thing here. But if research released by online electrical retailer AO.com is anything to go by, that’s about to change. Last year, Pinterest searches were up by 1,809 per cent —which means its only a matter of time before they’re huge here.
The beauty of the airfryer is that it cooks food with hot air instead of oil. For this reason, people have been using them for decades to create a healthier alternative to potato chips. However, thanks to the wonders of Pinterest, home chefs have been getting more and more creative when it comes to testing the limits of the airfryer. You can use it to make grease-free alternatives to everything from roast chicken, stir-fries, cakes and even pizza! The other drawcard of the airfryer is that much like the trusty slow-cooker, minimal time and effort is required as it does most of the cooking for you,
