FAQs

How do you clean a dual air fryer?

Some air fryers are dishwasher safe, so check this before you start giving it a scrub, as it will save you a lot of time. If it is, then pop it in upside down with the tray and basket drawer facing downwards. If it’s not, then just wash the tray and drawer in warm soapy water and use a brush to get off and hard bits. Pop it on the side afterwards to air dry or dry with a towel and then pop the tray and basket back once finished.

What can you cook in one?

You would have heard many people claim to be able to cook just about everything in their air fryer — and it’s pretty accurate. Air fryers were traditionally renowned for cooking foods that you would otherwise deep fat fry, such as fried chicken or chips. While they still are brilliant for cooking these types of foods, there’s plenty more you can cook in them too. Meats, potatoes, vegetables and frozen foods are ideal for cooking in an air fryer, and these air fryers are great for families of four and up.

Some air fryers even come with a ‘bake’ function, so that you can make cakes and brownies; a ‘dehydrate’ option to make healthy snacks, like dried apple, and you can even pop eggs in there too for your brekky. We have a whole host of healthy air fryer recipes that you can give a go.
