One major tip for saving on energy consumption could be found where you’d least expect it — hint: your kitchen! According to the Yale Environment Review, “cooking accounts for 20% of consumers' energy use.”(1) Cooking your meals with the Kalorik MAXX Air Fryer Oven can cut energy usage by up to 77%, making it more cost-effective for you, and less harmful for the Earth. 

Air Fryers & Air Fryer Ovens vs. Conventional Ovens

Turning on your Kalorik MAXX Air Fryer Oven

Air fryer technology has only been around for about 10 years, but it’s already made quite the impact on helping save time and energy for the modern household, delivering complete healthy meals faster than ever. Air fryers get hot almost immediately, whereas convection ovens and traditional ovens take anywhere from 10-20 minutes since they have more air volume and more surfaces to heat inside. In other words, in the amount of time it takes for your oven to reach your desired temperature, an air fryer might have already finished cooking your meal. Air fryers are the more sustainable option because they:

  1. Take less time to preheat, and therefore expend less energy during that time
  2. Cook food faster, and therefore require less time and energy to actually cook your food
  3. Use less electricity during cooking, even when cooking for roughly the same amount of time 

 Air Fryers use somewhere between 1/2 to 1/3 of the energy required by an oven. 

How Air Fryers & the MAXX Air Fryer Oven Work

Contrary to what you might think when you hear the word “air fryer”, air fryers don’t actually “fry” food at all. They instead channel generated electricity into heat via a heating element, combined with a high-speed fan that surrounds your food with a vortex of super-hot air. This creates a crispy, crunchy finish and produces a perfect, evenly cooked interior. Best of all, it  cooks in just a fraction of the time, as compared to traditional cooking methods.

How Air Fryers & Air Fryer Ovens Save Energy

One of the things that makes air fryers and air fryer ovens so energy efficient is the miraculously short amount of time it takes for them to reach cooking temperatures. Thanks to their fast and powerful heating capabilities and smaller size as compared to regular ovens and stovetops, air fryers cook meals faster than most appliances,  run for less time, and less power is used per session. They also don’t emit much heat, and the energy they do use is efficiently focused on cooking, not on heating the entire house. On some hot days, even with the A/C pumping, firing up the conventional oven can make your home unbearably hot. The MAXX cooks your food in a sealed cooking compartment that emits less heat. Since it cooks quickly, it isn’t cranking out heat for hours, and won’t be driving up your indoor air temperature and making your HVAC work extra hard to cool the house down.
