Follow my kitchen-tested Air Fryer Tips to get the best results every time, whether you're new to air frying or already love to air fry everything!
Never use aerosol-based oil sprays. The basket should always be oiled before adding food unless the food itself has been oiled beforehand, or else food can stick and tear.
An overfilled basket can keep the food from cooking evenly, or sometimes keep it from cooking at all!
Shake the basket every few minutes to ensure food like fries and wings cook evenly.
When cooking high-fat foods, add a cup of water or a slice of bread to the bottom of the pan.
Use a toothpick to hold lightweight foods, like bread on top of a sandwich, in place.
Anything that is oven-safe is air fryer-safe, so you can use aluminum foil in the air fryer in addition to things like oven-safe baking dishes and so on.
