Give the Gift of Fried Foods from Rosewill
I’ve been looking for healthier ways to feed my family. We try to limit take out and when I do cook I stay away from fried foods. My kids love chicken nuggets and fries, when I make them at home it’s usually in the oven. They come out good that way so we didn’t think there was a way to make them better besides frying them in oil.
Rosewill a leading manufacturer of home appliances and consumer electronics, recently expanded its home product line to include several new products. Thanks to Rosewill I was able to review the Rosewill 2.4 Liter Low Fat Oil Less Air Fryer. I wasn’t sure what to expect when it arrived but I couldn’t wait to try it out.
The air fryer arrived in the box ready to go. All you have to do is just wash out the basket by hand with warm soapy water. Let it air dry. Use a wet cloth to wipe the interior and outside before use. The top panel of the fryer has temperatures and times for popular items that you would probably use the fryer to cook. I love how easy it is to use and that there’s a cheat sheet on top of the machine for my convenience. There’s also a booklet with even more detailed instructions for frying.
When you plug in the fryer it shows the temperature and the time. Use the plus and minus buttons to increase or decrease the temperature and time. Once you have the time and temperature you need pop in the basket and you’re ready to cook.
The basket is a decent size and it can hold a decent amount of food. I was able to make enough nuggets to feed three kids making one batch in the basket. I didn’t stack mines on top of each other to make sure they cook evenly. I also wouldn’t recommend adding the foods layered on top of each other to make sure it cooks perfectly.
My nuggets went in frozen in the basket and I followed the booklet included in the box. I made sure I put it on the counter top and kept it clear of anything else around the unit. It does get every hot on the outside so be careful when taking your food out of the fryer and especially if you are putting more food back into the fryer.
My nuggets came out crispy and tender. They were not greasy or full of oil and they didn’t dry out like they can in the oven. Even after the kids ate and left one on the plate it was still crispy and tender an hour later. I’ve never had this kind of success from the oven or even frying. They were perfect.
Next up were the frozen fries. Again I didn’t fill the basket with fries, I used about a half a bag of fries for the kids. I suggest seasoning your fries before putting them in the air fryer. That way you don’t have to worry about it once they are done.
My fries came out crispy and perfect. I didn’t have to worry about them being in grease and they didn’t dry out like they tend to when in the oven. They all cooked evenly and it was just perfection.
Next I’ll be trying to fry chicken in the air fryer to see how it works but it has been great for me so far. The Rosewill RHAF-15001 Oil Less 1100W Low Fat Air Fryer, 2.5 quart/2.4 L, Black online from Amazon for $89.99. They would make the perfect gift this holiday season.
