Which Air Fryer is the Best?
If you don’t have an air fryer yet, or are looking to upgrade the one you currently have, I recommend checking out the Ninja Foodi Grill. I love the flip top opening and using the grill setting during the cooler months.
The GoWise Air Fryer is another one of my favorites. You can’t beat the price point! It’s a great product and would make a nice gift for a wedding, bridal shower, or birthday.
How to Clean an Air Fryer
Just like your pots and pans, you want to make sure you’re cleaning your air fryer after each use. Depending on what you cook, you might even be able to wipe down the basket and grate with a wet towel.
Most air fryer baskets are dishwasher safe, but check your manual first. I always clean mine with warm soapy water after each use.
To clean the air fryer:
- Turn the air fryer off or unplug it from the wall to let it cool down.
- Wipe the outside with a sponge or cloth.
- Wash the outer basket and inner basket with soap and hot water.
- Clean the inside of the air fryer with a warm cloth or sponge.
- Gently wipe the heating element, if there’s food stuck to it, use a brush.
