TIPS:

  • Shaking smaller ingredients halfway during the cooking time optimizes the result and can help prevent unevenly fried ingredients.
  • For perfectly fluffy fries, it is recommended that potatoes be parboiled before frying.
  • Add some oil to fresh potatoes for a crispy result. Fry the potatoes in the air fryer as soon as possible after adding the oil (ideally within a few minutes).
  • Be cautious of using extremely greasy ingredients such as sausages in the air fryer.
  • Snacks that can be prepared in an oven can also be prepared in the air fryer.
  • The optimal amount for preparing crispy fries is 500 grams.
  • Use pre-made dough to prepare filled snacks quickly and easily. Premade dough also requires a shorter preparation time than homemade dough.
  • Place a baking tin or oven dish in the air fryer drawer if you want to bake a cake or quiche, or if you want to fry fragile ingredients or filled ingredients.
