How do I add oil to food which I am preparing with my Philips Airfryer?
If you want to add oil to your food with the Philips Airfryer, you need to add it on the ingredients before you start air frying, not into the Airfryer itself.
To add oil to homemade potato dishes, such as French fries, follow the steps below:
Peel the potatoes and cut them into the preferred shape.
Soak the potatoes in a bowl for at least 30 minutes, take them out and dry them with kitchen paper.
Put half a tablespoon of oil in a bowl. Put the potatoes in the bowl and mix until they are coated with oil.
Remove the potatoes with your fingers or a kitchen utensil and put them in the basket of the AirFryer.
To add oil to larger ingredients, such as drumsticks or meat:
Dry the outside of the food with kitchen paper if necessary.
Lightly brush oil onto the outside of the food or use an oil spray. Only coat with 1 layer. Excess oil will drip into the pan during the hot air frying process.
Tip: You can also marinate meat or poultry instead of brushing oil onto the outside.
Adding oil is only necessary when you prepare homemade dishes from fresh ingredients that have not been pre-treated, such as freshly peeled potatoes or unmarinated chicken. Adding oil creates a crispy layer on untreated food and improves its taste.
