Cooking on the Road: Mastering the Air Fryer in Your Campervan or Motorhome

Using an Air Fryer in your Campervan, Motorhome or Caravan



Embarking on a journey in a campervan or motorhome offers a unique blend of freedom, adventure, and the simple joys of life on the road. However, one of the challenges often faced by road warriors is how to maintain a healthy and varied diet without the full kitchen setup of a stationary home. Enter the air fryer: a compact, versatile, and efficient appliance that is revolutionising cooking in campervans, caravans and motorhomes.

Why Choose an Air Fryer for Your Campervan?

Space Efficiency:
One of the most significant advantages of an air fryer is its compact size, making it an ideal fit for the limited kitchen space in campervans and motorhomes. Despite its small footprint, an air fryer is incredibly versatile, allowing you to fry, roast, bake, and even grill a wide variety of foods.

Energy Efficiency:
Air fryers are designed to cook food quickly and with minimal energy consumption. This is particularly beneficial when travelling in a campervan or motorhome, where energy resources may be limited. Whether you're hooked up to an external power source or relying on your vehicle's battery and solar panels, an air fryer ensures you can cook delicious meals without draining your resources.

Power Considerations:
Perhaps the most important consideration with the use of an air fryer in a Campervan is the amount of power it consumes. Fortunately not all air fryers are made the same and there are plenty of options available:

SMALL - Leisurewize Low Wattage 1.7L Air Fryer with Digital Display

 How much power will my Air Fryer take from my Batteries whilst Off-Grid (unplugged)?

If we consider the average meal takes 20 minutes to cook and Inverter efficiency is 85%

Small - 32 amps

Medium - 58 amps

Large - 80 amps

The above power consumption figures are considerable and if you put them in perspective of a small campervan with a 100ah battery they demonstrate how important it is to design your electrical system properly, and remember this is just for one meal!

Still want an Air Fryer in your Camper? This is how it's done.

Choose an inverter wisely, not all inverters are built the same. You should select an inverter capable of supplying the constant output required from the air fryer and go bigger, about 20% bigger! So if it is a 1000w air fryer you want to run in the van, go for at least a 1200w inverter.

Victron Inverters & Inverter/Chargers excel in this area, here are a few recommendations:
