Is cooking with the air fryer carcinogenic/cancerous?

Air Fryer reduces the amount of Acrylamide that is formed in your food. A study, for instance, revealed that air-frying reduced acrylamide by 90% in comparison to traditional deep-frying.

The reason can be tied to the following:

  • Air fryers cook with 80% less oil.
  • They also cook faster and at a lower temperature.
  • Air fryers allow you to preset the cooking time to ensure that your food is not overcooked.

Therefore, compared to other cooking methods, air fryers are healthier. Radiation is also linked to cancer, but air fryers radiate heat around your food, without ionizing.
