A gourmia air fryer can be turned on by pressing the power button. Air fryers are a dish preparation appliance that’s made to fry food while minimizing the use of oil. The main benefit being healthier cooking methods. You also can’t argue with the convenience factor, as all you need is an oven and stove top.
Gourmia air fryer not turning on
For the gourmia air fryer not to turn on, it could be due to a number of issues including:
-The appliance is broken
-The heating element is clogged with debris
-The drying tray does not have sufficient airflow
– The food has spilled into the heating tray, which causes a build up of the oil and other food particles. And this blocks airflow, which makes the appliance turn on.
-Food is inside of the air fryer that is bad for frying (e.g. onions, garlic, etc.)
Never use material (e.g. aluminum foil) that obstructs the heating element or drying tray.
Remove all debris from the appliance and clean thoroughly with a mild detergent and warm water to remove any remaining food particles or oil that may have spilled in the appliance.
How to use an air fryer
An air fryer is a new way of frying your food. You don’t need to use a lot of oil when making fried foods, as air fryers operate with little or no oil. Air fryers use hot air, as opposed to oil, to make all types of dishes crispy, including fried chicken and French fries. The hot air circulates around and cooks food simultaneously from all angles, creating a crispier version of oven-baked food.
Advantages of using the gourmia air fryer
As opposed to using a deep fryer, you can save hundreds on your electric bill when making just as many fried foods in an air fryer. An air fryer uses much less energy than a deep fryer, which saves you money in the long run.
Disadvantages of an air fryer
When using an air fryer, you can’t get the same results as a deep-fried food. Air-fried versions tend to have more moisture inside and are not very crispy on the outside. If you are trying to cook crispy-fried chicken in an air fryer, you may be disappointed with the results. Air fryers also can’t be used to deep-fry foods such as French fries and onion rings. The gourmia air fryer contains high temperatures, so it is recommended to be used only for frying food that can withstand higher temperature, such as fish fillets, chicken wings or potatoes. Don’t use an air fryer to cook foods with high water content such as fish soup or soups that contain meat or vegetables
Factors to consider before buying an air fryer
As air fryer technology is relatively new, there aren’t a ton of appliances available yet. The average size of an air fryer is about 2 liters and can cook up to 1-1/2 pounds of food at a time. Some manufacturers have been including technology that allows you to adjust the temperature of the appliance so you can “fry” food at different levels.
Price is another important factor when deciding on whether to buy an air fryer. Some of the more expensive appliances have digital displays, auto reset function and a warming tray that helps retain moisture. Although the appliance itself does come standard with some of these great features, if you are looking for the best model you should visit your local appliance store and ask to try out several different models side by side to see which size, brand or model is right for you.
Durability is another important issue to consider. If you are not planning to use your gourmia air fryer a lot, it might be cheaper in the long run to just buy a less expensive model. However, if you want to invest in a reliable air fryer that will last for many years, you should pay full price for the best model available.
