Tips and Tricks

  • Preheat the air fryer so the initial burst of hot air can seal the meat, preserving the juices inside.
  • Avoid crowding the basket so the hot air can freely circulate the food.
  • Parchment paper or a clean coffee filter on the bottom of the air fryer basket or tray will make for a quick and easy cleanup!
