An Australian man using ‘Air Fryer Guy’ has taken the internet by storm with his inventive food experiments using Kmart’s popular $ 89 hot air fryer.
The bearded dude, who rarely shows his face online, started sharing videos on TikTok in January, but only recently gotten to grips with his niche cooking methods.
In each video, the man chooses a product – be it slices of cheese, a $ 50 bill, or a Subway sandwich – and puts it in the baking tray to see what’s going to happen.
Hot air fryers came to prominence as a way to ‘fry’ food without submerging it in oil.

In some cases, the food becomes a crisper version of itself, which is what happened with the Subway, a cob bread he filled with leftover pasta and mozzarella that he placed on parchment paper.
While in other cases, pink and white marshmallows became a wobbly ‘cloud’ that melted together, Hubba Bubba gum, Starburst, and sour worm lollies or cookie dough mixes melt into a cake.
Ferrero Rocher chocolates wrapped in dough turned out to be bite-sized cookies, Arnott’s Tic Tocs melted to a caramel consistency, and corn on the cob became popcorn.

Not all of his videos are credible, and many say his pancake batter attempt – in which he poured batter onto parchment paper five times and put it in the fryer – didn’t work

The same was said about his Apple TV remote that was plugged into the device, but as an Apple Mac. Or his grandfather’s watch that comes out as his relative’s ghost.
In addition to the videos, the man creates a ‘jingle’ to frame what is happening on the screen, singing while he cooks.

Some of his most popular are ‘The Bacon Song’ and ‘Where the Smiles are Free’.
“When I first got the air fryer, I was a little scared of it,” he said Fox news.
‘The settings and timing were very different than in an oven or microwave. It was almost like a “magic” machine that could do everything.
“I thought most people would feel the same way, so I started putting random things into it, like money, potted plants, and an Apple Watch. Just for a laugh. ‘
And the result has been worth it, as the channel gained 367,000 followers in eight months, as well as 4.5 million likes.
