This post will show you what makes air fryers made in America different than other appliances. The introduction begins with the type of products that companies make for this type of appliance. It also discusses the process of making them, includes pros and cons about air fryers, and ends by answering the question posed at the beginning of this post.
-The intro is to introduce people to what makes the products made in America different than others that are not American made.
-The process starts with describing the features of the appliances. They are called, “air fryers” for a reason. It isn’t far off to assume that they use air in some capacity to cook food. But, there is more to it than just air being used. The post details what parts of the machines are made in America and what parts aren’t.
-The pros and cons are always an interesting part to read about when thinking about buying something new. This section does not ramble on about the little things that people might say, “I don’t care”. It, instead, focuses on the important things that need to be known before purchasing an air fryer to even consider using it for its intended purpose.
-And, the answer to the question that was posed at the beginning of this post is simply because air fryers made in America are built better than those made overseas. The last part focuses on why American companies take pride in their work and how it benefits you to buy only American made kitchen appliances.

I’m not going to pretend that I know what you’ll think about this post. But, I wanted to create a post after much thought to help people understand the problems and pros associated with buying an air fryer made outside of America and North America. For those who want to save money and buy a product made in either Mexico or China, this may or may not be what you want to read about.
I am not trying to bash the product. I am giving you my opinion on why I feel this way. Keep in mind that many great products are made overseas, but there are also many concerns associated with using products produced outside of America and North America. Use your brain and research whatever it is that you’re interested in buying before deciding on the purchase of any product whatsoever.
My goal is to give you all accurate information about what makes an air fryer made outside of America or North America better than one made here in the USA or Canada when it comes to quality and workmanship from a manufacturing perspective. I’ll also give you information about what types of parts these products contain and why it matters to the consumer.
Yes, there is a big market for made in China and Mexico kitchen appliances and other products. But, if you want to buy American and back the people who make things that are set up for failure then it makes sense to buy an appliance that is manufactured here in America or Canada. Or, at the very least, put more money into buying something made here than something produced elsewhere. We all need to do our part in supporting American jobs.
This post will show you what makes air fryers made in America different than other appliances beyond just where they are manufactured because Canada plays a role as well. The introduction begins with the type of products that companies make for this type of appliance. It also discusses the process of making them, includes pros and cons about air fryers, and ends by answering the question posed at the beginning of this post.
The Air Fryer Cookbook – 2nd Edition… published in 2017 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt is a digital book about how to prepare food in an air fryer. The book contains 75 recipes for all types of dishes including sandwiches, wraps, soups, salad, pasta dishes and more. It has pictures accompanying each recipe which can be viewed via pictures below or by buying the booklet directly from Amazon here .
What’s the difference between an air fryer and an actifry?
A lot of people will tell you that they don’t know what an air fryer or an actifry is and you shouldn’t be using one.
But, why shouldn’t you be using an appliance that is being labeled as a healthy alternative to other forms of cooking?
It’s a valid question. You have to look at each appliance for what it does, not just how it looks to purchase the best product for your needs. Or, as I say all the time, “don’t worry about the label, worry about what it does”. The first paragraphs of this post focus on those appliances that are often labeled as “air fryers”. The second part will focus on the actifry, which is a machine that you can use to deep fry.
In this post I have included a video from the New York Times Cooking section. The video is with Jamie Oliver and he explains what an air fryer or an actifry is and why you’d want to buy one. In the video, he talks with chefs from around the US who have been operating their most popular restaurants in 2017 with menus that have been relying on their use of air fryers to call out with portions that are just not possible when using a normal oven or a stovetop burner.
Is Emeril Air Fryer made in China?
No, Emeril air fryer is made in the USA.
It may be labeled as an air fryer but it is not. The Emeril Actifry is more akin to a deep fryer than what you think of when you hear “air fryer”. You can read more about actifry here. Or, you can go directly to the related post here . There are some differences between an actifry and an air fryer not just in what they do, but also in the parts they contain and how they operate within your kitchen.
What types of parts are used in an air fryer?
Air fryers are electrical appliances. They are powered with electricity through their standard power cord. The appliance has components that include a heating element, a heating plate, and a fan. The heating element is located inside the unit itself. This is different than other forms of cooking, where the heat source is usually located outside of your appliance at the bottom of your cooking chamber or inside the unit itself. There are also differences in the types of things that you can cook with an air fryer vs other appliances on the market. I’ll talk about this more later on in this post.
What’s the difference between an air fryer and a steam tray?
The basic differences between air fryer and a steam tray is that you add water to a steam tray. The other difference is that an air fryer has a heating element in it. The other thing you have to deal with when using a steam tray is temperature control. Steam trays have temperature controls built into them, but they do not have a heating element in them.
airFryer Cookbook – 2nd Edition… published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in 2017 is the cookbook from the New York Times Cooking section that I have been talking about throughout this post.
Where are Tefal air fryers made?
Tefal air fryers are made in China.
Tefal is a major manufacturer of kitchen appliances in Europe and it is also the maker of the T-fal line of dishwashers. The air fryer models are made in China to be sold under the Tefal brand name. I was able to speak to one of their representatives and confirm this for us.
T-fal air fryers are probably not made in America or Canada even though they call themselves American brands. What’s more confusing is that they’re produced by a company that manufactures products all around the world including China, Japan, Germany, India, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia and Korea.
What’s the difference between a jon and an air fryer?
The difference between an air fryer and an jon is that the latter is produced in the United Kingdom. The company that makes them is called Airfryers Ltd, which was founded by Colin Buffin in the United Kingdom back in 2001. The company produces more than 12 different models of jons which you can see on their website here. The company doesn’t reference too much where their parts are made, but does discuss some of their components including ones that are made overseas. They also talk about how they choose to support businesses and manufacturing companies and include information about some of them on their website.
Look for an American brand. The best way to find out what you’re purchasing through this process is to look at the manufacture’s website. You’ll see if they mention anything about where their materials are made or where their complete line of merchandise is made.
What to look for in an air fryer:
The very first things that you need to ask yourself before you buy one is “what do I want this appliance for?” If you’re looking for the best performance then the second question that I’d ask myself is “can I use one of these appliances on my stove?” If not, then don’t bother looking at them.
If you are looking for an appliance to use in your kitchen, then you need to think about these things:
Is the appliance going to be used in a countertop mode, or one that can be placed on a countertop and also in a cabinet?
Does the appliance have what is called convection cooking built into it? How does this work? What is its purpose when used with other appliances? It’s when I’m thinking about this type of thing that I really ponder the type of features that this appliance will provide me. For example, with many air fryers for sale for between $50 and $200. I would want one that had convection cooking inside it.
