Air Fryer Tips For Success

Do I need to preheat the air fryer?

My air fryer recipes don’t require preheating, with a few exceptions. The air fryer cooks much faster than an oven so it’s really not necessary unless you’re cooking something that doesn’t take long to cook, such as a seared tuna steak. In most cases, the total time it takes to cook food started in a cold air fryer is pretty close or the same as when it’s preheated, so skipping the preheating saves time.

Don’t Overcrowd the Basket

It’s best to cook food in a single layer so the air circulates and browns your food. If it doesn’t fit, cook food in batches to avoid overcrowding the basket preventing it from turning crisp.

Flip Halfway

In most cases, flipping your food over halfway is essential to evenly cooked and browned food on both sides, since the heating element is usually at the top. Smaller foods like French fries or vegetables, shaking the basket a few times rather than flipping, will get everything evenly browned and crisp.

This Air Fryer Chicken Parmesan recipe comes out crispy, golden and delicious. So much healthier than deep frying!
