Fellow and future air fryer owners, this article is for you!

Air Fryer Hacks


1. Preheat Your Air Fryer

Preheat your air fryer so that it will be ready to use once you finish preparing your recipe. Waiting for your air fryer to reach your desired temperature can take up to 10 minutes!

2. Line the Basket with Parchment Paper

Air fryer trays have holes in them, which can lead to small crumbs or pieces of food falling down to the bottom of the basket. Cooking your food over a sheet of parchment paper is less messy and helps prevent your food from dripping or leaving crumbs. This is a great hack to decrease your cleaning time!

3. Don’t Line the Basket with Parchment Paper

If you’re cooking bacon or chicken in the air fryer, don’t line the tray with parchment paper! The fat from the food drips down to the bottom of the basket. You can save or use the food drippings to make flavorful keto gravies or sauces!

4. Don’t Overcrowd the Basket

Overcrowding your air fryer basket can cause your food to cook unevenly! Instead of trying to fit all your food into the basket for one round of air frying, cook your food for multiple rounds in small batches.

5. Shake or Flip Foods Halfway Through Cooking

Midway through air frying, take out the basket and shake it or flip the food inside. This will ensure that your food is cooked and browned evenly.
