The Biggest Mistakes You Make With Your Air Fryer
In today’s world, convenience rules. Who wants to stay in the kitchen all night when you can scroll through Twitter or watch all 16 episodes of “The Witcher”? There are far more important things in life than making sure dinner tastes good.
Unfortunately, if you’re one of those people who wants to get the most out of your air fryer, you’ll have to put your phone down for a few seconds or walk away from the TV. All air fryers are a little different, and just because a recipe says it will take 15 minutes at 400 degrees doesn’t mean you can just boot up, go, and be sure your food will be perfect when the bell rings.
According to TV chef Meredith Laurence, one of the great benefits of the air fryer is that you can open it, check its progress, and close it again if the food doesn’t seem ready. And, you can do it as often as you like – opening the fryer doesn’t interrupt or slow down the cooking process. The visual feedback is also quite simple to read. If it’s golden, it’s done. If not, give it a few more minutes. (An obvious exception: chicken and other meats. Always check the internal temperature of meat before considering it “done”.)
