BLACK+DECKER Purify 2-Liter Air Fryer HF100WD Reviews
This air fryer offers a wide range of features. Of course Black and Decker is also a well trusted and widely used brand so quality is not an issue. As I said, there are a lot of features offered in this air fryer and I have listed the features and their functions below.
60 Minute timer:
This feature is great for those of us who have busy lifestyles and do not have the time to sit and watch food every second while it cooks. Having this timer means that you can set it and forget it until time is up. Once the 60 minutes are up the air fryer will automatically shut off so that there is no risk of burning what you are cooking. Now you do not just have to set the timer for 60 minutes, some food may not take that long to cook, no you can set the timer to anything within a 60-minute range.
2 Liter Capacity:
The food capacity of this air fryer is 2 liters, which means that it can hold eight chicken wings or 2 cups of potatoes easily. You can even put in less if you simply want to fry up a snack for you or someone in your family. I like the thought of being able to cook eight chicken wings at once because I have a large family and the more I can cook at once the better.
Dual Convection Fans:
Many times when I have been cooking with traditional deep fryers I have not been able to attain the crispy texture that I like so well on many foods. However, with the BLACK+DECKER HF100WD Purify 2-Liter Air Fryer, Hot Air Fryer, Air Fryer, Oil-Free Air Fryer getting that crispy texture is not a problem because of the dual convection fans. These fans circulate the heat produces by the fryer so that hot air gets around the food to make sure it is nice and crispy in very little time, without being burned.
This is a must have feature for any fryer in my opinion. The cool touch handle ensures that you will not burn your hand while trying to get your food out as soon as it is done. Everyone is pressed for time every once in a while and cannot wait for a handle to cool in order to get supper on the table.
Variable Temperature Control:
This air fryer offers the feature of being able to control what temperature you put your food on so that no matter what you are cooking it will not be overdone or under done. The temperature range on this air fryer is 175 degrees to 400 degrees.
These lights let you know when the air fryer is on and when it has reached the desired pre-heat temperature.
This air fryer can cook a wide variety of food in very little time. Let's say you wanted to fry some fish steaks. After pre-heating it can take anywhere from 12 to 13 minutes. Or if you wanted to cook some fries. Again, make sure to pre-heat, and then it can take anywhere from 14 to 20 minutes depending on what kind of fries you are cooking.
