Air Fryers vs Deep Fryers
Fried foods have the irresistible combination of crunchy crust and delicious insides. However, traditionally fried foods aren't the healthiest option to eat. While deep fried foods are great to eat occasionally, you should try to switch it up. Air fryers are a popular new appliance where you can use far less oil and still get a crispy, crunchy shell. Read on for our air fryer vs deep fryer comparison. You'll learn how to compare air fryers and deep fryers as well as the different capabilities of each.
Whether you decide to use an air fryer or a deep fryer, both are great options to fry foods. They'll both get the job done. It's all up to you to decide which one you like better. Maybe you'll end up liking both and get one of each! Check out Kohl's selection for more air fryer vs deep fryer comparisons.
The biggest advantage to an air fryer is the reduction of the amount of oil it uses to fry foods. You don't have to sacrifice taste and texture for health. Air fryers work by using super-heated air to fry the food. A fan in the top blows air down through the heating component onto the food. That super-heated air bounces around the contained fryer and fries the food on all sides just like a deep fryer. You don't have to stick to traditionally fried foods, either. Try frying vegetables or even baking cakes in your air fryer. Shop Kohl's selection to find the air fryer that matches your needs best.

While air fryers are fantastic, sometimes it doesn't come out just like you want it unless you have a deep fryer. You can make a variety of foods with a deep fryer, from classic French fries to interesting battered candy bars. Some adventurous cooks even deep fry whole turkeys. Deep fryers work by cooking food in hot oil, usually in a basket for easy removal. You don't have to flip sides like you would if you were frying chicken in a pan on the stove. Consider what size of deep fryer you want and where you'll keep it when choosing a model. Deep fryers do create distinctly tasty fried foods and often a thicker, crispier crust.
These "regular" deep fryers are the most widely purchased. They aren't too large or too small—they're just right. You don't want a huge ungainly appliance taking up valuable counter space and you also don't want a deep fryer that won't fit everything you want to fry in as few batches as possible. Balance the size constraints and how often you might fry foods with a regular deep fryer.
