Our Air Fryer Express collection serves up speedy and delicious recipes specifically designed to be cooked in an air fryer. As one of the most cost-effective and energy-saving appliances on the market, air fryers have become super popular for foodies looking for wallet-friendly cooking alternatives that reduce fat, save time and shrink energy bills.
What is an air fryer?
Air fryers are compact countertop kitchen appliances that use circulating hot air (convection) to cook food evenly and quickly.
Will an air fryer save me money?
Not only do air fryers use a whopping 50% less energy than a regular oven, but they also heat up and cook food much faster too. As a much more energy-efficient cooking method, you’ll be making energy savings every time you choose an air fryer over the oven or hob.
Are air-fryer recipes healthy?
Air fryers use around 75% less oil than pan-frying. Despite their name, air fryers don’t fry your food. In fact, the magic of convection cooking means you’ll be using little to no oil while still achieving deliciously crispy outsides and juicy insides.
I don’t have an air fryer, which one should I choose?
Air fryers come in all shapes and sizes, with a wide range of capacities and features to suit your budget. Any air fryer will cook up delicious food using the same convection technology but may require slightly different cooking times depending on their power. If in doubt, check the instruction booklet before you start.
How do you test your air fryer recipes? Are they safe?
Our air fryer recipes are tested in the Gousto kitchen and by a third-party agency to make sure the cooking method is safe, effective and delicious.
We use the Ninja AF100 Air Fryer to develop each of our recipes in the Gousto kitchen. Final recipes are thoroughly tested using the air fryer, making sure that food is cooked through and safe to eat. Some recipes including high-risk proteins such as chicken or pork are then independently validated by a third-party agency.
Make sure to check your food is piping hot and fully cooked before dishing up. For proteins, this will include no pink meat, juices that run clear and fish that flakes easily.
My air fryer is too small, what should I do?
Air fryers are most effective when food is arranged in a single layer with a little space in between each piece to allow hot air to circulate. Cook in batches if your air fryer is too small, making sure that food is fully cooked before moving on to the next batch.
Can I cook air fryer recipes in a regular oven?
All of our Air Fryer Express recipes can be cooked in a regular oven if you don’t have an air fryer. Scan the QR code on your recipe card to find the instructions on our website.
Can I cook other Gousto recipes in my air fryer?
While many of our recipes can be adapted to use an air fryer, our chefs will not have developed or tested them to do so. If you’d like to use your air fryer, make sure your food is fully cooked and piping hot before serving up.
