Welcome back to our series on How to Use Your Air Fryer! In Part 1, we covered some basic cooking techniques and tips. Now, in Part 2, we'll go over some maintenance and care tips to keep your air fryer in top shape.
First things first, always refer to the manufacturer's instructions for specific cleaning instructions for your air fryer model. But in general, here are some tips:
- Always unplug the air fryer before cleaning.
- Let the air fryer cool down completely before cleaning.
- Wipe down the exterior with a damp cloth. Do not use abrasive cleaners or scrubbers.
- For the interior, use a soft sponge or cloth with warm, soapy water. Avoid using steel wool or other abrasive materials that can damage the non-stick coating.
- For tough stains, soak the basket and tray in warm, soapy water for 10-15 minutes before washing.
- Some air fryer baskets and trays are dishwasher safe. Check the manufacturer's instructions to see if yours is.
- If your air fryer has a removable heating element, make sure it's completely dry before reassembling.
