Oven paper on the resistance and other tricks to clean your air fryer

Need a tutorial to clean your air fryer? This small appliance, which has become an economical, versatile and healthy alternative to the oven and frying pan, nevertheless continues to hide some secrets for the average user that are not included in the instruction manual. And the air fryer faces a series of peculiarities that make it a delicate object, but you can solve them without knowing how.

Luckily, the Instagram account Real Fooding (@realfooding) has shared in a post, which has already accumulated more than 230,000 likes, a trick that will help you clean the resistance of your air fryer properly. You just have to apply grease removing liquid on a piece of kitchen paper. Then turn the air fryer upside down to place the paper on the heating element for 15 minutes. After that time, remove the paper and you will see how the trace of dirt remains impregnated in it.

The basket of your air fryer is not prepared to be cleaned with soap and water, since the steam could damage its electrical system. That is why it is best to remove both the basket and the rack and spray them with a degreaser, or with dishwashing liquid. Once you have let the solution sit for a few minutes, you can rub with the soft part of a scouring pad to remove any traces of dirt.

Also, you should never scrub the basket or rack with an aluminum bristle scrubber, as this could damage the Teflon. These items should also not be put in the dishwasher, because, as with frying pans, the abrasive action of the detergent and the heat would weaken their non-stick coating.

On the other hand, there are formulas to make efficient use of the air fryer and not have to clean it after each use. If you want to get your air fryer as dirty as possible, you can place some damp parchment paper on the base of the basket. Then, put the rack on top and get cooking! Thanks to this trick, food remains and grease will remain on the baking paper and you will only have to worry about replacing it.

Another very useful resource is to use molds and racks to prepare your preparations. Whether made of silicone, aluminum or clay, these utensils are suitable for the air fryer and will allow you to expand your range of recipes.
