Trio Air Fryer Review

One of my least favourite tasks when cooking is deep frying, mainly because it takes such a long time and it leaves my kitchen oily. Plus, using so much oil isn't healthy, which is why I've been wishing for an air fryer for quite some time.

However, I was put off from owning one because the models I find in stores are expensive, some retailing near RM1000! So I was happy to discover that there are less expensive models online. I recently went on Lazada and got myself a Trio air fryer, which cost me about RM250.

After using it for a few weeks, here's my review :)

The Trio air fryer is quite large but has a sleek design nonetheless.

It arrived via courier in a large box.

The features of the device are on the box.

Here's a look on the inside. The basket can be removed for washing.

And now, here's the result of some oil-less frying!

I was able to fry four small-medium sized fish at one go. I marinated them in salt and turmeric. I find that the fish does turn out to be slightly dry. To prevent this, add 1 tablespoon of cooking oil to the air fryer.

Frozen potato wedges turn out great in the air fryer. No oil is needed and they turn out warm and fluffy :) You can only cook small batches at once.

I love the results of my fried chicken the most. I can fit two legs in the basket and I've fried them up with no oil, yet they turned out crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.

Conclusion
I find the air fryer to be an indispensable tool in my kitchen, because I don't have the luxury of spending too much time in the kitchen these days. For one, my toddler hates it when I'm in the kitchen for too long and he's always clinging onto me. Secondly, I'm busy with work and helping my elder son study, so I can't waste time on watching food cook :P

With the air fryer, I just put the food in and leave them to cook. In about 15-20 minutes, they're done! So far, I'm really happy with the Trio air fryer. It was a good buy :)
