If you are confused between halogen fryers and regular low fat fryers, then you will be amazed to know that they both work on the same principle, that is provide heat via a halogen bulb. In these machines, the bulb is a powerful source of heat which is used in combination with a fan that circulates hot air inside the fryer where the food is placed. As a result, the food inside the bowl is fried.
For the food to be fried, it is essential that it is exposed to an extremely high temperature. Failing to do so will only cook the food and not fry it. This is the reason these fryers are equipped with small bowls that keeps the food closest to the heat source. The halogen fryers also have a non-stick surface where the food is placed. The heat is concentrated on the food that allows it to cook and give the browning effect. It is important to brush the food with little oil to prevent drying or burning the food. Some models even have a rotating paddle that will move the food when it is being cooked to prepare it more evenly.
