This is one of the questions, often asked in my air fryer group.
You actually need very little to accomplish this task:
Step 1-The first thing you need to do is was the basket. Even if it is new, you need to wash it down. So, remove the basket, the pan and wash it with warm water, soap, and your sponge. Use a dishtowel to completely dry it.
Step 2-Put the pan and basket back into your air fryer (this will vary, based on what model you own), and set the temperature for 400 degrees (or the highest temperature on your air fryer) and air fry for 5 minutes.
Step 3 -After the 5 minutes, let it cool down slightly, so you can easily touch the basket.
Step 4-Take about 1/8 cup of coconut oil, and rub it all over the pan and basket. Just a thin layer, heat it up again (400-390 degrees F, based on what settings yours has. And heat for another 3 minutes.
Shut it off, and now it’s ready for use.
