There was a lot of hype about the air fryer that it generated kilometric threads of discussions–and debate–among cooking groups in social media as to which is better, the air fryer or the turbo broiler.

It is because the air fryer is touted as a “smart” appliance. Just pop in any type of food for frying, whether meat or your favorite snacks, set the timer and voila! No need to keep an eye on your food from time to time, which may be a challenge to the head of the household working from home.

For the health-conscious bunch, the air fryer supposedly allows them to enjoy fried food, minus the guilt because all the oil are trapped underneath the appliance. Deep-fried treats may not always be the smartest choice in keeping a healthy diet. However, when deep-frying at home, it is not easy to overlook, especially when the aroma starts to waft into the air, which may encourage one to eat more and affect their overall diet. However, there’s also no denying that deep-fried is so good it is worth dedicating a cheat day just for it.  

Did you know, though, that there is a way you can enjoy your favorite deep-fried dishes minus the guilt of consuming something that can get your healthy eating habits off track? That was exactly what Breville Philippines proved during its virtual event, “Hey, Home Fryer!”
