What is an Air Fryer and how does it Work?

Not too many people have heard about an air fryer. But in recent years, there’s been a lot of hype building around this kitchen appliance.

But why is this the case?

Well, it’s mainly due to the fact that this appliance will allow you to cook fried food without using any oil. It functions through a mechanical fan that is supposed to circulate extremely hot air all around the food items at extremely high speeds. As a consequence of this, the food will have the crispy layer that we normally notice on deep friend food.

This means that we can actually enjoy French fries and fried chicken or fish without feeling guilty over the number of calories we’re about to take in. Due to the fact that hot air uses to fry the food, we don’t need oil to do this job. As a result of this, we can expect the total number of calories to fall significantly. This would be particularly beneficial for you and your family who would like to eat healthily but are finding it impossible to pass on their favorite snacks!

If you're not quite sure how an air fryer works but want healthy meals, then read this post.

On initial observation, an oil less fryer looks like any other kitchen appliance. However, when you use it you’ll realize that it cannot be any more different to the standard appliances. As a matter of fact, this machine utilizes the latest technology, which we wouldn’t have seen 10 years ago! Part of the development of this technology is due to the increased awareness of healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle.

Despite this, it’s worth noting that the device will require a little bit of oil. A lot of brands have stated that you’ll be okay with using up to 80% less oil than you would in a traditional deep fryer. However, if you can afford it, you can get a model that doesn’t use any oil at all.

What to Look for in an Air Fryer?

When buying such a machine, it’s best to look for features that’ll ensure that your food is cooked efficiently. For example, most models will allow you to change the temperature and most will also have a timer built into the machine. These two features will allow you to fry food quite efficiently.

The size is a major factor that we need to take account of before buying any kitchen appliance and it’s certainly essential with this type of fryer. If you’ve got a reasonably big family then it would be highly advisable to buy a model that has a large capacity. You need to make sure that you don’t end up with a model that will only fry 4 chicken drumsticks.

Another essential factor is the use of oil in the machine. Most air fryers reduce the oil by up to 80%. However, some models like the Philips HD9220/20 don’t require any oil whatsoever. The only issue is that this particular machine is quite expensive so you need to decide whether you’re willing to spend a bit more for an oil free model!

As you can probably guess, the next big question is regarding the price. This is probably the most important factor and setting a fixed budget will ensure that you don’t become a victim of impulse buying at any point.

An air fryer will be highly beneficial for every household that makes fast food regularly. However, you need to ask yourself whether it’ll be a suitable alternative for your normal deep dryer. This means that you need to evaluate whether the entire family is willing to make lifestyle changes and eat healthily. Ultimately, you don’t want to find out after a few months that you have no use for the machine and you end up pushing it into a corner!


Looking at Polk Nue Voe: The New Stylish Earbuds

The Polk Nue Voe earbuds are very stylish and are perfect for those who want to look good while listening to their music.If you’re familiar with the name of Polk, you must’ve heard about the Polk Nue Voe in-ear headphones. This is because this pair has earned lots of positive reviews ever since it was released. While the earphones look more suitable for ladies, the overall design looks absolutely amazing. I would even go as far as saying that the Polk Nue Voe is the best looking pair of earbuds around at the moment. Even though they would be better suited for women, most flashy guys will easily pull off a stylish look while wearing these. The good thing is that you also have the chance to get a black colored model which will be preferred by most people who don’t like to gain any attention.

Even though the design is probably the most eye-catching feature, the Polk Nue Voe earbud headphones also perform well in most departments. We will receive a good variety of ear tips which will be suitable for most people as they would be able to get a good fitting. You will also have the opportunity to try different tip materials like memory foam and silicone but be aware that this may have an impact on the blockage of external noise.

These earbuds are iOS-friendly and have the ability to work well most Apple products. While testing these out with the iPhone, the sound does sound amazing. In general, the volumes do differ between different phones. The sound is quite rich with a deep bass. In my opinion, this product excels is areas where even some premium earbuds fail. At the end though, it’s your decision whether you get these or not.

I would personally recommend taking a look at my list of the best earbuds under $100 to get a better idea.


Debuting DualCoil Technology in the T20 Earbuds

The new RHA T20 earbuds have dual coil technology to improve sound quality.We have already talked about how impressive the RHA T10s were. However, now we have the chance to take a look at the higher T20 version which has significant differences in quality. In fact, when the T20s were being announced by RHA, they were to incorporate the latest technology which would enhance their performance.

We all know how manufacturers have been trying their best to work on the technology advancements to make their products better and better. For the T20s, RHA will be using the DualCoil technology for the very first time. RHA have said that this technology will help to reproduce music with far better detail, clarity and accuracy and that this will far surpass any other standard earphones available these days.

We can be forgiven for questioning the use of this technology as oftentimes, companies just say they will use something but we often see little difference in the overall quality. However, you can see the incorporation of DualCoil technology clearly in the design of the earbuds. There are separate coils located on both of the buds so you know there is something different when compared to traditional earphone sets.

Considering the fact that the T20s have been announced, it is difficult to assess the impact of this DualCoil technology. However, this is something we are looking forward to. The one important question is whether this advancement in technology will push this set to achieve greater praise over some of RHA’s award winning models such as the T10i and T10 earbuds.

We look forward to answering this question soon.
