What Does an Air Fryer Do?

Air fryers work using the convection method of cooking. Hot air is circulated around the food cooking it from the outside in, making food tender on the inside and crispy cooked on the outside. For low-fat or low-carb followers, the air fryer is a must-have. And for those who live in small spaces, the air fryer is a deep fryer and an oven all-in-one!

Air Fryer Tips

  • Always preheat the air fryer before cooking anything in it. That initial burst of hot air will seal the outside and keep the inside of anything from meat to veggies to muffins moist and tender.
  • Do not wash the air fryer basket or tray and put it back in the air fryer until it is completely dry. If water gets on the electrical components, it may short out the entire appliance.
  • Wipe down the inside with a clean tea towel or paper towel between use to soak up any residual oils.
  • For easy clean-up, try using foil in the air fryer following these few simple tips!
