Fried Egg in Philips XL Airfryer

I have decided to have a healthy diet but  I do love my fried food. Therefore, I decided to purchase the  Philips XL Airfyer that uses little oil or no oil at all. Now even my son who is 8  years old knows how to fry a fried egg effortlessly. All he needs is to crack an egg into a bowl and whisk it. Then, sprinkle a dash of salt and add 1/2 tablespoon of milk into the egg mixture.  Pour the egg mixture into an oiled baking pan and place the baking pan in the airfryer. Next, set the temperature of the airfryer at 200  degrees Celcius and cook for 9 minutes or until the fried eggs are well-cooked in the middle and it is golden brown.
