An Australian man who goes by ‘Air Fryer Guy’ has taken the internet by storm with his inventive food experiments using Kmart’s popular $89 air fryer.
The bearded fellow, who rarely shows his face online, started sharing videos on TikTok in January, but has only recently gained traction for his niche cooking methods.
In each video the man chooses a product – whether it be slices of cheese, a $50 note or a Subway sandwich – and puts it inside the frying tray to see what will happen.
Air fryers rose to prominence as a way to ‘fry’ food without submerging it into oil.

In some cases the food will become a crispier version of itself, which is what happened to the Subway, a cob loaf he filled with leftover pasta and mozzarella he put on baking paper.
While other instances saw pink and white marshmallows become a wobbly ‘cloud’ fused together, Hubba Bubba gum, Starburst and sour worm lollies melt or cookie dough mixture form a cake.
Ferrero Rocher chocolates wrapped in dough turned out to be bite-sized biscuits, Arnott’s Tic Tocs melted to a caramel consistency and corn on the cob became popcorn.

Not all of his videos are believable, with many saying his pancake batter attempt – which saw him pour five lots of batter onto baking paper and put it into the fryer – doesn’t work

The same was said about his Apple TV remote control being put into the device, only to come out as an Apple Mac. Or his grandfather’s watch coming out as his family member’s ghost.
Alongside the videos the man creates a ‘jingle’ to frame what is happening on the screen, singing as he cooks.

Some of his most popular ones are ‘The Bacon Song’ and ‘Where the Smiles are Free’.
‘When I first got the air fryer I was kind of scared of it,’ he told Fox News.
‘The settings and timing were very different to an oven or a microwave. It was almost like a “magical” machine that could do anything.
‘I figured that 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 with the channel gaining 367,000 followers in eight months – as well as 4.5million likes.
