The Gourmia GTA2800 Wifi Air Fryer or the Turbo XP cook center is one in the line of cooking appliances that has revolutionized cooking – the last such invention must have been the microwave oven. An air fryer cooks by circulating hot air – at 200 degrees Celsius around the food. It cooks or air fries traditionally fried foods like potato chips, fried chicken, or fish, poppadums, croquettes, as well as pastries, cakes, pizzas, and soufflés. It uses minimal oil and claims that it reduces the oil consumption by 80%. So of course it is a healthy option.
Gourmia has a range of cooking appliances like the multicooker, the rotating grill, sous vide cooker immersion pod etc. This is one more from the company whose mission is to help cook easier, quicker and healthier with a promise to make it an enjoyable experience.
