Air Fryer Cooking Times VS Oven
One of the most popular questions I’m asked here at Fork to Spoon is how air fryer cooking times differ from using an oven. Or why aren’t air fryer cook times vs. range the same?
The air fryer is a small countertop oven that circulates hot air around the food at high speed. Because of its compact size and convection process, it cooks food faster than a standard oven.
The air fryer cooks faster, but it also works to caramelize the natural sugars in the food, helping to bring out even more flavor!
In the air frying community, we like to say that when comparing air fryer and convection oven cook times to a traditional oven, you want to reduce the temperature by 25F and reduce the cooking time by around 20%.
Can I air fry without oil?
The short answer is yes, but there are a few exceptions.
Your air fryer works like a traditional deep fryer because it has a deep basket; however, instead of submerging the food into hot oil, the items in the basket are baked by the heat from the air flowing around them.
Many recipes require no added oil, like steaks with a fat cap.
If your food already contains a lot of fat, like bacon, you can add a piece of bread to the bottom of the tray to help prevent it from smoking while cooking.
For most other recipes, you only really need 1-2 teaspoons of oil. Using too much oil can cause the oil to drip and hit the bottom tray, which can cause smoke.
Since air fryers work by circulating air quickly around your food, you’ll also want to add some oil to anything light like seasoning or leafy greens to keep them in place.
