Here are some tried and true Air Fryer Hacks, that will have you an air fryer master in no time.
- Shake Your Basket: This is one of the easiest ways to ensure that all of your food is cooked to perfection.
Why shake you ask?
This is really important when you are cooking smaller sized foods, such as french fries or chips. The reason behind this tip is that the heat in the air fryer comes from above,
(in most air fryers) so if you don’t shake the food, the heat will hit the same spot over and over again, this will cause the food to burn or at least turn a darker shade. By shaking it,
you encourage all of the food to be cooked at the same time. Since you are moving the food around, you are encouraging the hot air to touch all of the food you are cooking.
How Much Should I Shake The Basket:
I recommend every 5 minutes, will ensure that you get nice and crispy textured food.
To Shake The Basket: Pull the pan out of the air frey, both the liner and hte basket. Then GENTLY shake the basket.
