A Guide to Air Fryer Uses
Everyday Uses of Air Fryers
Let’s take a moment to delve into the multifaceted functionalities of air fryers. They are champions in achieving that golden, crispy perfection with lesser oil and excel in roasting, baking, and grilling. Some air fryers even come with rotisserie options, allowing you to roast a whole chicken to juicy, succulent perfection.
But how do you squeeze every ounce of benefit from this marvellous appliance? It’s all about blending the old with the new, taking your time-honoured recipes and giving them a modern twist.
A quick tip to maximise its usage would be to experiment with layering — using the different trays to cook multiple dishes simultaneously, saving time and energy. Also, remember, a good preheat can be your secret weapon to achieving that uniform golden crispiness.
Creative Uses of Air Fryers
While air fryers have become synonymous with healthier versions of our favourite fried foods, there’s a whole world to explore, far beyond the conventional.

And if you enjoy a good brunch, how about some air-fried French toast or even hard-boiled eggs? Yes, you can bid farewell to the hassle of boiling water.
But don’t just stop at sweets and breakfast items; venture into creating crunchy homemade snacks, like kale chips or roasted chickpeas, an ideal munch without the guilt associated with fried snacks. Moreover, you can even use it to add a smoky flavour to your nuts and seeds.
We encourage you to break free from the norms, toss in your favourite ingredients, and see the magic unfold. Remember, with an air fryer in your kitchen arsenal, you’re only limited by your imagination.

Tips and Resources
Caring for Your Air Fryer
It’s a good practice to clean your air fryer after each use to prevent buildup and preserve its efficiency. Make it a habit to wipe down the interior with a damp cloth to remove any residue. The dishwasher-safe basket and tray in most models should be washed regularly to maintain hygiene.
Moreover, investing in a good quality brush can be a game-changer, aiding in reaching those nooks and corners where grease accumulates.
Your Handy Guide to Cleaning Your Air Fryer
Step 1: Power Off and Let it Chill
Before embarking on the cleaning journey, disconnect the air fryer from the power source and give it ample time to cool down to a safe temperature.
Step 2: Extract the Detachable Components
Carefully extract detachable elements such as the basket, pan, and other removable components. These parts are generally safe to clean in a dishwasher, offering you convenience and efficiency.
Step 3: Submerge the Accessories in Soapy Water
If food residue clings stubbornly onto the basket or tray, immerse them in a warm, soapy water bath for about an hour. This procedure aids in loosening the clinging particles, making them easier to remove.
Step 4: Clean the Interior
Employ a gentle sponge or cloth to cleanse the inner realm of the air fryer. Utilise a blend of water and a gentle dish-cleaning liquid. Strive to reach every corner to remove any lingering food bits. A soft-bristled brush can be your ally in tackling stubborn spots.
Step 5: Clean the Exterior
Graciously swipe the outer surface with a moist cloth. You may use a gentle cleaning agent that suits the outer fabric of your air fryer to eliminate grease and adhering dirt.
Step 6: Address the Heating Mechanism
To clean the heating mechanism, brandish a dry brush to delicately remove any food fragments that may have found a home there. Exercise caution to prevent any potential damage to the element.
Step 7: Clean the Accessories
Return to the accessories and enjoy a soak in your sink. Employ a soft sponge or brush to gently dislodge and clean away the now-lossened dirt and food fragments.
Step 8: Pat the Parts Dry
After their wash, lovingly pat the components dry with a clean towel or let them air dry in their own time before you plan to put them back together.
Step 9: Reassemble
With everything clean and dry, embark on the reassembling journey, ensuring each piece finds its way home securely and snugly.
Step 10: Embrace Regular Upkeep
Commit to a relationship of regular upkeep with your air fryer. This preserves the aesthetic and functionality and ensures a delightful cooking experience each time.
