The Living Basix Jet Fry Oil-Free Fryer makes cooking quick, convenient and most importantly, healthy! This unique product makes crisp, succulent fried food with little to no oil. Using a combination of infrared and convection cooking technologies, the Jet Fry Oil-Free Fryer reaches an internal temperature of up to 400F and evenly circulates hot air to cook chicken wings, French fries and onion rings with the same crunchy exterior and moist interior produced by conventional deep fryers. You can also use the Jet Fry to bake or broil meats and vegetables. Virtually all of the cooking oil is absorbed by the food, eliminating strong odors as well as the hassle of disposing of large quantities of used oil. The Living Basix Jet Fry Oil-Free Fryer has multiple adjustable temperatures as well as a programmable timer. The inner components are also dishwasher safe for easy maintenance. ETl-listed.
Top customer reviews
All that said, we can achieve the same great results from the LB100 in about the same time. We don't follow any particular guidance on temperature or time, it took us a week to master it and we basically cook everything on high for 10 to 15 minutes. We find that basting foods with a bit of olive oil can be very worthwhile, especially with fish.
Finally, about our four star rating. The only reason for 4 stars is because we compared it to a Phillips and it fell a little short. We still like it very much and we'd buy another one before paying twice the price for a Phillips, as long as holds up and provides a comparable service life. That remains to be seen.
On dry, pre-breaded items such as frozen chicken nuggets, Mozzarella sticks, Chicken Tender, French Fries, Shrimp, and other items it worked very well. Even fresh made Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers, Bacon Wrapped Shrimp, and Crab Cakes work very well, and you don't lose any flavor to the oils. All the breading is crispy on the outside, and the meat or veggies are moist and delicate on the inside. The flavor is cleaner (less fatty) as there is no heavy oils used and so this make for a healthier option than traditional deep frying. You do have to get used to the cook times as the fry directions on the items are usually a bit long. I usually just check halfway through, and judge from there. Clean up is easy which is a nice reprieve from my traditional fryer as I have to hold on to the old fryer oil and take it into work where I can dispose of it correctly.
I must say though, there is a down side, and to anyone who is more than the frozen dinner section chef, it is a pretty big blow in my opinion. I am a chef by trade, education, and passion, and so I generally don't use pre-made items. Most all of my fried items are made from scratch. Again, for dry breaded foods, and dry coated foods (Home Made Fries) or unbreaded items, this work terrific; but with wet dipped items such as Kosher CornDogs, Tempura anything, Funnel Cake, Fry Bread, Fried Chicken, Country Fried Steaks, and many others, this items does not work at all. This is due to the fact that the oil seals in the breading, allowing it to "Rise" inside the coating, while keeping the batter evenly distributed along the foods because it is immersed in oil, so there is no weight on a specific side. These items cook the way they do because not so much as the speed that they cook at, but because of the specific "weightless, suspension" environment they cook in. Unfortunately, there is no other way to replicate this exact cooking environment, so many of these items just don't work in this product.
I do enjoy this items for the value of healthy alternative to the deep fryer for specific foods. Cooking my signature bacon wrapped shrimp is wonderful in this machine, and clean up is so much easier. It is worth having for anyone looking for a way to create healthier alternatives to the standard fried food the we all love so dearly.
With that being said, as a healthy alternative, it doesn't matter how healthy the cooking process is if the items you are cooking are still "garbage". Most frozen items are lightly pre-fried so you still keep the taste the oil imparts, for those who choose to bake their items instead finishing in the fryer. If you are truly looking for healthier alternatives, start looking at ingredients, and if there are words with more that 4 syllables or more than 5 ingredients off of the pictured dinner items, generally it's over processed. Instead head to whole foods stores, or look up recipes online for the fare that you love.
The appearance may not be stylish or fancy to some but you have to look at it when it is in use. Do you want to look at good cooking or a good looking supposed cook?
