Mi Smart Air Fryer: a versatile air fryer
Allowing an oil-free and therefore healthy cooking of food, the Xiaomi Mi Air Fryer offers a sleek design, signature of the brand often referred to as Chinese Apple. All dressed in white, it displays fairly standard dimensions of 335 x 252 x 304 mm for a more than reasonable weight of only 3,9 kg.
We find at the front a basket of 3.5 liter capacity dishwasher safe and a wheel OLED display used to select the various cooking modes. This dial is obviously used to start or stop the device with a simple pressure, but also to choose a temperature ranging from 40 to 200 ° C, or to select its cooking mode.
Issuing a 1500 W power, the device offers the possibility of cook without oil, but also to defrost, dehydrate and even ferment food, for example to prepare homemade yoghurts. If you run out of ideas, you can draw from over a hundred recipes that the Chinese company promises to regularly enhance through OTA updates available on its application.
A fryer connected via Wi-Fi to Xiaomi Home
Indeed, in the case of a connected object, the Mi Smart Air Fryer connects to Wi-Fi to your home network to be controllable via Xiaomi Home. Well known to Xiaomi home automation users, the application allows you to program the device and select recipes like its competitor Proscenic T21 for example.
Best of all, this connected fryer is compatible Alexa and Google Home, which makes it even easier to use it using voice commands. A selling point that should hit home with aficionados of the connected home since a simple "OK Google, turn on the fryer" or " Alexa, start the preheating of the fryer ”will allow the use of the xiaomi fryer.
