Air fryers have become a kitchen staple as of late, but like any appliance in the heart of your home, they need regular cleaning to maintain their performance and ensure food safety.
In this blog, we’ve listed five easy ways you can get a clean air fryer again in no time:
Unplug and Cool Down
Safety should always be the top priority, so never attempt to clean your air fryer while it’s still hot or plugged in.
Air fryers should not be cleaned while still plugged in and running. So don’t forget to take it out of its socket and allow it to power down.
Remove and Clean Accessories
Most air fryers come with removable accessories such as the cooking basket or tray.
Remove the basket and tray so you can wash them with warm soapy water. Use a sponge or cloth as well to scrub them as clean as you can.
Don’t forget to dry these parts completely before placing them back into the air fryer.
Wipe Down the Exterior
Grease or food stains on the exterior of your air fryer shouldn’t be ignored.
Use a sponge or wet cloth to take care of any stains like these that may have splattered on the surface of your air fryer during cooking.
You can wipe it clean with another dry cloth after wiping your air fryer clean.
Clean the Interior
You can use a soft brush or toothbrush to reach into the air fryer to clean oil and food stains. But be gentle to avoid damaging any non-stick coating.
Mix baking soda with water to create a paste to put on your brushes before scrubbing them on the affected areas.
If you have a clean air fryer, it means you get to continue having delicious, guilt-free dishes.
