Air-fried food using the Della 048-GM-48268-RD vs oven-cooked food
One potential buyer asks: What’s the difference between fries cooked with the Della 048-GM-48268 air fryer than oven-baked ones? Here’s a summary of what consumers have said.
Overall, there’s not much of a difference in taste and flavor. As one person has said, these fries taste like they were deep fried without the grease. But when it comes to cooking time, this air fryer wins as it was faster than cooking in an oven. Plus, you don’t have to worry about it heating up your kitchen as you would with a full-size oven.
Frozen fries an come out crispy, but how about freshly cut fries? According to consumers, it’s possible to achieve this goal provided that you prepare the fries beforehand. Preparation can be soaking the cut potatoes in ice water for 30 minutes. Also, you may have to cook them a little longer, or sprinkle a bit of olive oil on them to achieve a nice, brown look.
Still on the subject of the resulting air-fried food using this device… One person asked: Does the food stay moist or does it get dry?
The general consensus is that the resulting air-fried food can be moist, but you must learn how to properly use this air fryer. For instance, it’s important to time your food well. Or you might want to coat your food with a little bit of oil.
Size of the frying chamber
Note that this device has a 5.8-quart basket, which is big compared with many of the competition whose food basket’s capacity is only about 3 quarts.
From one person’s account, the Della XL isn’t that large physically, but the interior is “as large as any I have seen.” He added that some models that he’s seen are large physically but “the interior is only half the size.”
Strong food odor
People who live in a small apartment or those with a not-so-well-ventilated kitchen would definitely be concerned whether or not this air fryer produces a strong food odor. The quick answer is that it shouldn’t because it only smells when you use lots of oil to cook your food. Even though you use a tablespoon of olive oil to coat your food, the smell should be contained in the machine.
