You’re making your famous fried chicken for dinner. You could cook your mouth watering chicken in the deep fryer or in the air fryer. You know your family enjoys eating the delicious meal no matter which method of cooking you choose. Lately you’ve been interested in being more energy efficient around the house. To help you decide about which appliance to use, we looked at how much energy each one typically uses. You might be surprised by the answer.

Let’s look at wattage.

Deep Fryer = 1,200 Watts < Air Fryer= 1,400 Watts

Conclusion: If you are concerned about energy usage then head to the pantry and grab your deep fryer because it does use slightly less energy. While the air fryer might use more energy, it does allow you to cook a healthier version of your fried chicken. Either way, you will be sure to have a dinner ready that your family will love!
