Some people are wondering how much food the Philips Airfryer will be able to cook at one time. Really this all depends on the type of food that is being cooked. Different foods are different shapes and sizes which will fill up the basket of the Air fryer differently. The basket has a max line that indicates where to stop filling it. Here are a few suggestions for how much of each food can be cooked at one time in the basket of the Best Air Fryer 2017.
When cooking fries it will depend on if the fries being cooked are fresh or if they are frozen. Also keep in mind these are the maximum amounts that the basket can hold, not the recommended amounts. If the fries are fresh, the basket will hold roughly one and three-quarter pounds of fries. If the fries are frozen, the basket will hold roughly one and a half pounds of fries. Both quantities are enough to feed a family of four no matter how they are cooked. However, the recommended amount of either one to cook at once is about a pound. Also, the basket should be shaken about halfway through the air frying process in order to get an even cook.
When cooking meats in the Philips Airfryer it is best to only cover the bottom of the basket with the meats. Since the Airfryer needs to cook the foods using hot air there must be enough room for the air to circulate around the foods. If meats are stacked on top of one another there will not be enough exposure for the meat to cook fully. However, the meats will get nice and crispy on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside if they are cooked properly.
When stuffed vegetables and doughy foods are cooked in the Airfryer they should be cooked the same way as meats. Also, it is advisable to leave enough space in between the ingredients that are being cooked so that they can be lifted out with a pair of tongs.
When baking cakes, muffins, quiches, or bread in the Philips Airfryer it is important to use a baking tray that is 6 inches round. Also, make sure not to fill the trays more than halfway because the dough will rise during air frying, and if they are overfilled it might cause them to overflow and touch the heating element. This will cause whatever is being cooked to get burned and not turn out so good.
