Hammacher Schlemmer unveils Oilless Fryer in US

FBR Staff Writer Published 19 September 2013

Hammacher Schlemmer, a US-based retailer and mail order dealer, has unveiled the Oilless Fryer, a kitchen appliance that cooks crisp, succulent fried food without any oil.

The Oilless Fryer features an infrared heating element that heats to 400 °F and its internal fan circulates the dry, hot air to cook golden-brown 'fried' food. It adjusts to cook between 170 °F and 400 °F, has a 60-minute timer, and the cooking basket has a removable divider for placing items as they cook.

Hammacher Schlemmer's general manager Fred Berns said that the Oilless Fryer creates the same texture and flavor of a deep fryer yet produces food with 80% less fat.

"Another significant benefit of The Oilless Fryer is it eliminates the hassle of disposing of hot, unpleasant cooking fat," Berns added.

The Oilless Fryer accommodates up to four cups of food at once. Chicken wings, french fries, or spring rolls cooked in the device will have crunchy exteriors and moist interiors, the company said.

The device is available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $249.95.
