3 Basic Air Fryer Questions Answered in Detail

After reading various Philips air fryer reviews, you probably have several questions on your mind that you want answered before you decide to buy one yourself. Here are some of the most common questions that people tend to ask and which can help you make your final decision, as well.

How Does It Work?


Instead of cooking oil, an air fryer will cook food with nothing but air through an innovative and unique technology known as Rapid Air technology. This technology uses high-speed circulation and a top grill to get the job done. It will basically circulate the hot air around the food in the fryer as quickly as possible to heat up everything at once and create crispy food similar to food deep-fried with oil. The inside of the food will remain juicy and soft, though.

What Can You Cook with It?

A lot of people seem to think that potato chips and fried chicken are the only things that they can cook with an air fryer, but the truth is that you can actually use this appliance to prepare all sorts of ingredients in your kitchen. While it is called an air fryer, you can also use it to roast and grill chicken, fish, beef and pork. If you like making pastries, then you can bake some in your air fryer, as well. You can also grill zucchini, peppers, corncobs, and other vegetables if you’d like.

The only things that you can’t prepare in an air fryer would be carrots, broccoli, beans and other vegetables that you will need to steam to cook. Also, keep in mind that you won’t have to defrost frozen potato products and snacks the way that you would before cooking them in a traditional deep fryer anymore.

If you would like to cook your food faster, you can do so with a bigger model. In fact, you can even cook different types of food at the same time with a bigger model. All you have to do is put the divider in the air fryer’s basket and choose two ingredients to cook simultaneously. You can put chicken drumsticks on one side, for example, and potato chips on the other. You will need to check if you are cooking ingredients that need the same temperature to be prepared, though.

If you need recipe ideas, then feel free to visit websites online that provide them. Sometimes, though, an air fryer will also come with a recipe booklet, so you can just try them out as you please.



How to Shoot a Broadhead the Right Way to Always Hit Your Targets

Right before the hunting season begins, a trend seems to show up in threads for crossbow reviews where people complain about their broadheads not grouping or flying well after being shot. While a lot of people automatically assume that the problem lies with their broadheads, this isn’t actually the case.


Generally speaking, broadheads are finicky. No matter how perfectly tuned your crossbow may be, your broadheads may still fail to hit your practice points in the end because of your arrows or your crossbow. You just need to figure out what the actual problem is in order to shoot your broadheads from your crossbow more accurately.

Your Arrows

Before anything else, you should take a look at your arrows. As mentioned earlier, arrows that group well with installed field points do not necessarily equate to broadheads flying well from a crossbow. In fact, they won’t a lot of the time. This doesn’t mean that the broadheads are to blame, though. They are merely responsible for magnifying all of the problems areas that you already had with your crossbow and arrows in the first place.

Common Arrow Issues

There are three very common issues of crossbow arrows. The first one lies in the change of balance at the front, which happens when the arrow’s length changes as you screw a broadhead on in place of a field point. Since broadheads weigh the same as field points, a lot of hunters think that this won’t change anything. However, since broadheads are longer, there will actually be a slight change.

Screwing on a broadhead affects where the arrow flexes a little. It also affects how it comes off of the crossbow’s rail. Because of this, most broadheads that fly out of crossbows well have short ferrels. If this is the only problem, then every arrow that is tipped with a certain broadhead should group together and you should be able to adjust your scope in order for things to work.

If things still don’t work out after that, then the problem might lie in the arrow spine. Generally speaking, the arrow spine should be consistent between arrows. The only time this isn’t applicable is when it comes to carbon crossbow arrows. Since the shafts of carbon crossbow arrows are manufactured differently, their spines can differ when measured anywhere around their circumference.



The Different Types of Camping Weather to Prepare For

If you aren’t ready for unusual weather when you go camping, things can become unpleasant fairly quickly. To limit these unexpected surprises, make sure you always check the weather forecasts for camping online. Also, make sure you read up on how to deal with different types of natural occurrences as you camp. Read on.


Rain and Floods

Rain and floods are some of the most underestimated dangers to camping. It might seem like a downpour a few miles away won’t affect you, for example, but a ton of water can suddenly come flowing down your riverbed and surprise you out of nowhere because of it. Even if you stay on high ground, the old road that you drove on could become unreachable for days. Still, high ground would be your best bet when rain and floods strike. Just wait for the water to subside and call for help as soon as possible.


Contrary to popular belief, camping and hiking doesn’t offer a lot of protection against strong winds, most of all if you camp or hike somewhere high up. After all, trees with shallow roots can easily blow over and send branches and debris flying all over the place. If you ever get stuck in strong winds, look for a heavy and strong structure to seek shelter on, like a cave or a big rock formation. This would be especially important if you find yourself on flatlands with blowing gravel and dirt posing as serious risks.



Plan A Camping Trip

Camping is a great way to get all the family together and is a cheap and affordable way to enjoy a vacation. However planning a camping trip requires thought and consideration – you need to make sure that you have all the necessary equipment and have thought about where you are going to stay, otherwise your trip could be a disaster. This article looks at the essentials of camping.


Where To Stay

There are plenty of options available to campers. You could select a private camp site, a state or national park campground, a KOA site or even in the wild. If you want to be sure of a pitch at your preferred site, it would be wise to book in advance as the most popular campsites become very crowded, especially during the summer months.

What Sort Of Tent?

That depends on how many of you are going camping and how comfortable you want to be. There are countless varieties of tent on sale, from the ultra-convenient pop-up two man tent that is perfect for hikers to huge tents that will fit in the whole family with room to spare. If you are looking to keep costs down and don’t mind cramped conditions, there are small tents with only a porch and sleeping space. These can be purchased in sizes that sleep between one and six people. However, they offer no living area and if weather is inclement they can be very uncomfortable. The best family tents for those who can afford it are those with several sleeping compartments as well as a central living space and porch. These allow for privacy during the night as well as room to stretch out on rainy days and cooler evenings in the central living area which has room for seating and a table. These types of tents also offer more in the way of storage area for food, clothing and equipment.



5 Creative and Highly Effective Whitetail Tips

Let’s face it: deer hunting isn’t easy. So, if you want to succeed as hunter, you need to be both analytical and creative. Here are some creative and highly effective whitetail tips that you can try.


1. Stay Down

Sometimes, getting low is the best thing to do while hunting. This means crawling on your hands and knees into an open field to get your buck. Most people simply don’t do this.

However, if you find yourself in a cornfield, for example, and a buck comes out, but you are worried about putting out a ground blind, try lying on your belly and crawling in instead.

This tactic works especially well with short hunts, but you will need to spend some time scouting. You need to come prepared, too. This means wearing kneepads and bringing cushions for your waist, chest and chin. To prevent aching, roll over sometimes. And lastly, when you see your shot, don’t hesitate to take it.

2. Hunt Backyard Bucks

More and more whitetails are finding themselves in metropolitan areas and a lot of hunters hate them, especially the ones who hunt properties close to metropolitan areas. If you are one of these hunters and if the deer is within the city limits, however, make sure to bring a bow and always follow all of the necessary regulations.

To make sure that you don’t break any rules and to ensure the utmost safety, make sure you knock on doors nearby and let people know what you are doing and then focus on the small woodlots nearby. Generally speaking, though, it is completely legal to hunt backyard bucks, so make sure you take full advantage whenever you can.
