How To Clean
Your Air Fryer
Air fryers have revolutionised the way we cook, offering a healthier alternative to traditional frying methods. But even the finest of kitchen gadgets can fall prey to the build-up of grease and grime if not maintained properly. Here's your go-to guide to keep your air fryer in pristine condition!
What is the Easiest Way to Clean an Air Fryer?
For those who dread kitchen clean-up, the air fryer is a blessing. Its parts are typically non-stick and dishwasher safe, making the process straightforward. Start by unplugging the appliance and letting it cool down. Next, remove the basket, pan, and any other removable parts. Since our air fryers are dishwasher safe, pop them in on the top rack. Or you can use warm soapy water and a non-abrasive sponge, which’ll do the job nicely. For the main unit, a simple wipe with a damp cloth suffices – avoid immersing it in water.

How Do You Clean a Greasy Air Fryer?
Tackling a greasy air fryer needn't be a chore. For an appliance that's seen a bit too much action, you'll need to roll up your sleeves. Mix baking soda with water to create a paste. Apply this to the greasy areas and let it sit for about 20 minutes. Then, use a soft brush or sponge to gently scrub the grime away. This should lift the grease without damaging the surfaces.
For the exterior, a kitchen degreaser can be used sparingly, followed by a polish with a microfibre cloth to make it shine. Just remember, harsh chemicals or abrasive sponges can do more harm than good.
When to Clean an Air Fryer?
Like any kitchen appliance, the best time to clean your air fryer is immediately after use – once it's cooled down, of course. A quick clean prevents residue from sticking and odours from settling in. A deeper clean, including a thorough scrub and inspection, should be performed weekly or after heavy use. Keeping a consistent cleaning schedule will ensure your air fryer continues to function efficiently and lasts longer.
