Famous for French fries, fried chicken and crunchy snacks without the need for a lot of oil, the air fryer is a modern kitchen essential for many people. They do, however, build up grease, causing them to start to smoke which will ruin the flavour of your food. So, just like other kitchen appliances, your air fryer requires regular cleaning and maintenance to ensure it works efficiently and keeps free from smells.
Cleaning Air Fryers
Follow this handy to clean your air fryer:
Clean the basket and pan
Some detachable parts will be dishwasher safe (refer to the instructions to check). Simply pop these bits in your dishwasher. Otherwise, put the basket and pan into the hot soapy water and wash them with a sponge. If food is stuck on, leave it to soak for ten minutes first. Leave it on the drainer to dry.
Cleaning the interior
Using a soft cloth or sponge, wipe the interior, paying attention to the heating element. If there is a lot of grease, add washing up liquid to your cloth. You can use a soft-bristled brush to remove any stuck-on dirt. When all the grease is gone, wipe it over again with a cloth that has been dipped in hot water and leave it to fully dry.
Cleaning the exterior
Moisten a cloth in hot soapy water, then wipe the exterior of your air fryer. If it is stainless steel, you may use special wipes. Never submerge the air fryer in the water!
Manufacturers recommend cleaning air fryers fully after every use, to keep them free from odours. Make sure you never overfill your air fryer: if you do, the food won’t cook properly, and more grease and bits of food will get stuck to the heating element.
