Benefits of Air Fryer Cooking

  • Air fryers cook food evenly while achieving the desired crispiness of our favorite fried foods with much less fat.
  • Air fryers are designed with a concealed heating element and removable basket, making it a safer cooking method than working with a pan of hot oil. 
  • Most air fryers have digital controls for precise temperature and cooking times for foolproof cooking, and automatically shut off when the cooking timer ends. 
  • Most air fryers are designed with a non-stick basket making clean-up a breeze.

Air Fryer Cooking Tips

  • Not all air fryers use the same temperature increments, so if your air fryer cannot be set at the exact temperature specified in a recipe, select the closest temperature setting.
  • It’s best to check for doneness at the low end of the requested cook time and continue cooking longer if necessary. 
  • Don’t overcrowd the air fryer basket. Cook in batches, if necessary, so that the air can properly circulate around the food. 
  • Preheating an air fryer isn’t usually required unless a recipe calls for this step. Air fryers heat up quickly, and preheating doesn’t usually result in less cooking time.
  • To prevent foods from sticking in an air fryer, give the basket or wire rack a light spray of cooking oil (I use olive oil) for easy removal, or use a sling made out of aluminum foil for certain foods that tend to stick more easily. This works especially well for more delicate foods.
