Last November, the demand for air fryers had rocketed by 3,000 percent as customers seek to save on energy costs, research from Utilita found. Air fryers can cook more than frozen chips and breaded chicken, and Swan Brand UK took to its TikTok account to share five foods that can be created in the air fryer.
The humble potato can be transformed into a hot, filling lunchtime meal in as little as 15 minutes.
Begin by piercing the jacket potato with a fork and pop in the microwave for 10 minutes to quicken the cooking process.
Remove and rub oil over the skin, then season with salt and pepper.
You can wrap the potato in tin foil to speed the process up, or simply place it into the bottom of the air fryer basket and set the temperature to 180 degrees Celsius for a crisp skin and fluffy potato inside.
