Air-frying technology, a make or break for the food industry

‘The technology to improve health and wellbeing is there: Use it or do something else’ Stefan Schenkelberg said.

A gadget, used in their kitchen, that uses super-fast air to make perfect chips without any oil.

When it first became introduced to the market, about 3 years ago, it sounded like a lot of hot air, it’s now proven reality ..because it is.

Philips has invented a frying machine that it claimed gives you that same satisfying fatty taste – but without the oil.

For now over two years Gourmet Express Mobile Catering uses this gadget to serve (and to have served thousands of satisfied customers) customers and they all are full of praise of the new exclusive new technology once they have tasted the food.

We feel it is about time to explain the technology a bit more. The AirFryer uses Rapid Air Technology, hot air in other words, to cook the kind of meals that would traditionally be dunked in a deep fat fryer.

By circulating air up to 200C around foods like chips, sausages or schnitzel, Philips has proven that they have invented the right equipment that is able to brown them off nicely with up to 80 per cent less fat and not sacrificing the taste.

The AirFryer looks quite the opposite of a bulky deep frying machine for commercial caterers, it looks like a large rice cooker and has a chunky tray which can be removed, filled with food and put back inside.

Twelve minutes later the meal emerges hot and crisp and, as a proven fact, far healthier for our customers.

It produces a brown and crispy finish – and cuts the calories – in everything from schnitzel/ pork loin pieces to scampi.

A batch of handmade chips would need just half a spoonful of oil and will take 12 minutes to cook. We use oven ready fries and we cook them to a crisp in just nine minutes. Hamburgers (we call them Frikadelle), Bratwurst or Schnitzel are dealt with in similar times.

The device uses a grill and a fan to blast very hot air around food at high speeds. This achieves what scientists call the Maillard effect, the browning and crisping process seen when food is fried, roasted, toasted or even baked.

Because fries are so popular, they are responsible for Britons consuming 240,000 kilos of hidden fat every year according to research conducted by Philips.

Our AirFryer has helped cut this figure, and allows customers to enjoy their favourite meals with a clean conscience.

The device is a perfect solution for those nervously using traditional chip pans, which are notorious for being the cause of major fires in chip shops throughout the country. More than 50 people die in the UK alone due to chip pan fires.

About two years ago, Rob Dobson, the commissioner of London Fire Brigade, which had just launched its Cooksafe campaign about the danger of chip pans, said, we quote: “Any gadget that reduces the number of people cooking with lots of hot oil is a good thing.”

Crucially, it tastes most satisfying and that has proven to be a fact.

It also has an air filter so, no matter how much like fried food it tastes like, our kitchen won’t give off smell like a chip shop.

Airfryer technology, advanced solutions that help contribute to people’s health and well-being, ‘Gourmet Express Mobile Catering’s owner Stefan Schenkelberg said.

“The technologies we use live up to that promise by helping people live a healthy life. Healthy cooked food should be the way forward to any food conscious thinking establishment including the small family owned fish shop ‘around the corner’ in this country. I believe we have in our early years on the market already proven to be an encouragement for the catering industry in general to improve ‘their act’; the technology is available, if they don’t use it they should do something else: it’s the health and wellbeing of customer at stake and every caterer must use their authority to make an impact.”
