With the 2020 LG InstaView ThinQ Oven’s new Air Fry feature built-in, users can create delicious, guilt-free dishes right in their oven. The new technology eliminates the need for small air fry appliances that contribute to kitchen clutter and contributes to healthier cooking by alleviating the need for oil, as compared to traditional deep frying. LG’s True Convection technology circulates hot air at high speeds for crunchy-on-the-outside, juicy-on-the-inside goodness that’s evenly cooked throughout. And because no preheating is required, meals go from fridge to table faster than with conventional ovens.

The feature alleviates the need to open the oven door unnecessarily, increases energy efficiency and reducing cooking times.
