Possibly everyone is jumping on the air fryer train! Unfortunately, not many are aware of the DON’Ts.
Here are 5 common mistakes you’re making with your air fryer.
1. Overcrowding your air fryer.
It is rather easy to just toss in everything from the bag into your air fryer, but it is vital to understand how it works!
Air fryer functions as a convection oven, thus it requires proper space and air flow to cook.
2. You are not cleaning your air fryer regularly.
If you use your air fryer frequently, it’s mandatory for you to clean it. Make sure to follow the steps reckoned to avoid imparting unwanted flavors.
3. Not using enough or any oil.
Many would assume you don’t need oil for your air fryer, but that’s not the case. To enjoy a flavorful and crispy meal, it is important to add a small amount of oil or use cooking spray.
4. Not preheating your air fryer.
Just like any oven, preheating your air fryer is necessary for optimum cooking. Forgetting to preheat can result in undercooked food. No one likes that!
5. You don’t rotate your food.
Another common mistake is not rotating your chicken, fish or any protein of your choice.
Flipping your food halfway through cooking will give you an evenly cooked and delicious dish.
