MY NEW FRIENDLY AIR FRYER : DELONGHI : SMART MULTI COOKER
Last Friday a genius kitchen appliance arrived from Jashanmal Store, suppliers of Delonghi, to my kitchen, as it came I opened the box and read the instruction. There was a recipe book along with it. This is a new appliance for every kitchen because this not only fryer but work as a slow cooker and Oven also. I checked all the parts and understand how to use it.
Next day tried to make sweet potato chips I peeled the sweet potatoes and evenly sliced, I arranged in the fryer and coat all the chips with 1 tbsp. oil only. I set the time about 20 minutes and turn the bottom heat, when I press the button start; I was bit nervous to see the magic of my new friendly fryer. As you can see from outside the chips was turning slightly pink, I was sure about the result. As a naïve, I opened it in 18 minutes. The chips were perfectly done. I sprinkle some salt, black pepper and serve to my husband, and he passed the taste. So this was the first recipe I tried in the Delonghi’s smart Fryer, I will say to this fryer a smart & Genius Fryer because the uniqueness of this fryer.
In this fryer there is a heating element in the bottom as well as for the circulation of heat equally there is a fan on the top. After the success of my first recipe it gave me confidence to try another. So I decided to try to bake salted Cookies called Mathree, made with plain flour and semolina. I made the dough, and divided the dough in to half, I rolled all the Mathree and half I deep fried and half I fried in the Delonghi Fryer. You will amaze to know the result, the taste of Delonghi’s fried was far better than the regular fried one. After this I decide to make samosa & Bread rolls. Both turn well after cooking in the Delonghi’s fryer .I applied oil with the brush only.
Day three made me more confident about the product, so I tried Spring rolls and Thai Veggie parcels.
When you fried Spring roll in the regular fry pan it absorb too much oil, but after frying in this the rolls was very crispy and fat free. The taste was exotic because the filling was not disturbed by deep-frying technique. No need to cover my hair as I used to do earlier, when I was frying in the kitchen, the deep frying always makes my hairs oily even after putting the exhaust fan.
Day four, my experiment ideas got wings, so I decided to try something unique. I made gourmet styled Raw Banana, Kebabs and Potato Churros. The End result was fantastic.
Because when you fry delicate Kebabs or cutlets in the regular fry pan, the turning sometimes change the shape the kebabs, but in the smart fryer you don’t need to worry about the change of shape.
In the recipe book of Delonghi fryer is written that you can bake a cake in this fryer, I don’t believe so out of curiosity I made a chocolate cake. I removed the paddle and pour the cake batter, set the timer and sat on the chair to watch my favorite show on TV. But my conscious does not allow me to sit relax so I want to the kitchen to see whether Cake is rising perfectly or not. But Delonghi proved me wrong the cake rise perfectly and baked well. I switched off the fryer and left the cake for 15 minute for cooling. After 15 minutes I turn upside down, the cake comes out well. I bake another cake and join with Pineapple jam.I made Cream cheese frosting and cover it from all sides. At Dinner I and my family enjoyed Cream Cheese frosted Chocolate Cake.
VERDICT : If you are planning to buy a slow cooker or fryer, buy this new smart fryer because it is a fryer cum slow cooker, even you can bake cake also. For me this a must buy for every kitchen, no need to deprived from fried tasty food, invest in the healthy cooking device and enjoy the delicious healthy meal everyday… have a fuss free cooking and fat free snacks.
