The quarantine has led us to spend more time in the kitchen than usual. It has even seen the birth of true culinary experts who, just a few months ago, were beginners. The lack of physical activity during these days has made healthy cooking (even) more important at this time of year.
Oil is essential in the Mediterranean diet, but abusing it is not advisable either. For this reason, when we make recipes with fried ingredients at home (such as, for example, the popular French fries or our beloved croquettes), it is important to use just the right amount of oil so as not to generate dishes full of calories.
Oil-free fryers are highly recommended appliances for preparing the most delicious recipes in a healthy, light and clean way (since it avoids us having to use the frying pan and running the risk of leaving the whole kitchen full of oil).
