The air fryer is a modern kitchen appliance that can cook food by circulating hot air around it, giving it a crispy and fried texture without the use of oil or fat. It has become popular in recent years as people look to eat healthier while still enjoying their favorite fried foods. However, many are likely curious about the history behind this innovative device. When was the air fryer invented? Who came up with the idea first? In this article, we will explore the fascinating history of the air fryer.

Before diving into when and who invented it, let’s take a moment to understand how an air fryer works. An essential component of an air fryer is its heating element. The heating element heats up quickly and produces heat energy that circulates throughout the machine’s chamber using convection technology – creating hot air currents.

As you would expect from deep frying food items submerged in boiling oil; this newly developed method also cooks various foods at higher temperatures (around 200°C) until they’re crispy on all sides within minutes! And unlike traditional frying methods where you need adequate amounts of fat/oil for cooking because otherwise, your food won’t taste right – Air Fryers don’t require any additional oils since they utilize Rapid Air Technology™—a patent-pending implementation—played an integral role in developing this new-age equipment.

This unique technology was made possible due to advancements in computer programming hardware which controls both temperatures and times during cooking cycles for different types & quantities off ingredients!

Now we get back to our original question: Who had conceptualized such a revolutionary kitchen gadget?

Philips electronics company based out of Europe- Netherlands developed personalized appliances alongside other electronic innovations after World War II focusing mainly on sound recording devices like record players and cassette tape machines. The company had been expanding its range of production over time across numerous fields, including televisions or home appliances; however none quite measured against their experience designing sound systems… until the Air Fryer entered the picture.

The concept of a machine that could provide crispy fried food without harmful fats/oil was first introduced by Turbochef Technologies. However, this is where Philips took up the reins and developed its conceptualization. In 2010, Philips released their initial prototype model in Germany – known as an ‘AirFryer’! Though they were still advancing their products over time (particularly improving their digital displays), it enjoyed enormous success ever since.

Philips’ product knew no boundaries—it won hearts worldwide thanks to its speedy cooking times, easy-to-use features like well-positioned menus complete with options for pre-setting temperature or timing mechanisms. It had become even more popular among health-conscious diners looking towards quick and healthier alternatives than traditional deep-fried dishes!

Since its launch date eleven years ago, other renowned kitchen brands picked up on the concept of Air Frying Foods too: GoWISE USA immediately followed suit; T-Fal started offering alternatives soon after; then came many variations developed by Black+Decker and Cuisinart.

In conclusion – The year 2010 saw a revolutionizing invention – Let us take some time out to be grateful for what may have very well revolutionized how we used Oil & our stovetops in general:

As such—While Phillips Electronics holds credited recognition—not just named yet unknown several inventors/inventions exists behind every creation—we applaud them all collectively today for innovation at its best!
The air fryer has become a staple in many kitchens as people try to eat healthier while still enjoying their favorite fried foods. This innovative appliance can cook food by circulating hot air around it, giving it a crispy and fried texture without the use of oil or fat. But have you ever wondered about the history behind this game-changing kitchen gadget?

The concept of cooking with hot air is not new; convection ovens have been available for years. However, the idea of an appliance solely dedicated to frying food without deep-frying it was first introduced by Turbochef Technologies. Yet Philips Electronics took up the reins and developed its conceptualization.

This invention provided endless possibilities to cook healthy options making them just-like-deep-fried-dishes! As it minimized the usage of oil to great extents, which in turn proved helpful, especially for people who are watching what they eat. In addition to that Air fryers made cooking meals convenient and quick.
