Which appliance consumes more energy, rice cooker or air fryer?
As biochemical engineer Angel Perez explains on the ‘Robotina’ portal, the energy consumption of an air fryer is mainly determined by the model of the fryer, its power characteristics and the temperature at which it is operated, all these factors. Can determine final power consumption.
“They consume about 1,450 watts, which will depend on its size. While conventional ovens can operate with 1,000 or even 5,000 watts, a good capacity air fryer is more convenient,” says the biochemical engineer.
Regarding the energy consumption of rice cookers, ‘Elegenio’, a blog specializing in electricity consumption and solar energy production, mentions that rice cookers, like other small appliances, are classified according to their energy efficiency, because it Information is important to consumers. Know which model to buy when thinking about savings.
The energy consumption of a rice cooker depends on the brand and mainly on the size of the appliance, in addition, on the amount of rice to be cooked, as some can use 400 watts, while others can reach 1,000 watts per hour. .

Consumption of 400 watts per hour.
