How to Clean an Air Fryer the Right Way

Clean the Air Fryer Right After Using

After using, disconnect the machine, turn it off, and let it cool. It will only get stuck on if you put off cleaning it.

Wipe the Basket and Pan with Soapy Water

After removing the detachable inner basket and pan, wash it in warm, soapy water and give it a thorough cleaning.

For Stubborn Messes, Soak or the Basket and Pan

You can soak and submerge the pan and basket in soapy water. Dishwasher-safe baskets and pans are available from certain brands.

 Wipe the Bottom Chamber

Although it can be a little more difficult, the machine's bottom chamber is the most crucial component to maintain clean.

Wipe Down the Heating Element

Only after the machine has fully cooled down can the heating element be cleaned. For easy access, it might be best to tilt or invert the machine.

Dry Before Reassembling

After the components have dried fully, reassemble and store.
