Frequently Asked Questions

Should I preheat my air fryer?

It’s not necessary to preheat the air fryer before cooking. If you do, it could change the cook time of your recipe. Only preheat if the recipe you’re following says to do so.

Can I use tinfoil in the air fryer?

You can use tin foil in the air fryer. It can be used to keep foods from sticking, or to make clean up easier. You can also wrap liquidy foods in it or steam food, as you would “en papillote” (wrapped in foil) in the oven.

Can I bake in the air fryer?

You can bake anything in the air fryer. The only stipulation is that it fits in the basket. If you have a silicon cake pan that fits in the air fryer basket, go ahead and bake your cake in it. You’ll be surprised how great it turns out and in less time than in the oven.
