How to Clean Your Air Fryer in 4 Easy Steps

by jyoti singh digital marketer

Introduction

Air fryers are amazing at cooking all kinds of delicious snacks and meals, but one thing they're not great at is keeping themselves clean. If you let the muck pile up in your air fryer without taking care of it, you'll have a lot of stuck-on crumbs and debris, which can lead to funky smells or even smoke when you turn it on later. Luckily, cleaning your air fryer doesn't have to be hard or time consuming if you know how to do it right. So break out that sponge and follow these easy steps for a shiny, clean air fryer that's ready for all your future deep-fried cravings:

Step 1: Unplug the air fryer and allow it to cool down.

  • Unplug the air fryer and allow it to cool down. It’s important to let your air fryer cool down before cleaning it, as you don’t want any residual heat from the device causing damage to any surfaces or materials you might use for cleaning.

Step 2: Remove the basket, shake off any excess crumbs and wipe it down with a damp cloth.

  • Remove the basket, shake off any excess crumbs and wipe it down with a damp cloth.

  • Dry the basket with a clean, dry rag before re-inserting into the air fryer.

Step 3: Wipe down the inside of the air fryer with a soapy sponge or cloth.

To wipe down the inside of your air fryer, use a damp, but not soapy sponge or cloth. Do not use a scouring pad or abrasive cleaners on your air fryer. Make sure to clean off all food particles and oil residue from the basket, interior walls and vents. Do not use cleaning products that are not specifically designed for air fryers, as they may damage the appliance or compromise its performance over time.

Step 4: Dry the air fryer thoroughly with a clean, dry rag before turning it back on and using it again.

Now that your air fryer is clean, let's make sure it stays that way.

  • Use a clean, dry rag to dry the inside of your air fryer thoroughly. Don't use a wet cloth or a dirty cloth to wipe down your appliance; this can cause damage and mess up the taste of whatever you're cooking next time. Also avoid using any rags with chemicals or detergent on them; these things could damage the metal surface of your appliance and even cause it to rust.

  • Once you've dried off all of the surfaces in your air fryer, turn it back on and run an empty batch through until everything gets nice and hot again (this will evaporate any moisture). Then cook something tasty!

You can keep your air fryer clean in just four steps.

You can keep your air fryer clean in just four steps.

  • Step 1: Unplug the air fryer and allow it to cool down. You’ll want to do this before you remove the basket so that you don’t burn yourself on any hot parts of the appliance. (Hint: If there are still crumbs inside, they will be hot!)

  • Step 2: Remove the basket and shake off any excess crumbs. This might seem like a silly step, but trust me—it helps! If there are still some left over after removing them from their packaging, then they may have fallen into nooks and crannies of your air fryer during storage or use. The best way to get at those bits is by tapping out all loose pieces onto a plate or bowl first (or another surface where you won't mind having stray breadcrumbs land).

Conclusion

Now that you know how to clean your air fryer, you can keep it in tip-top shape.
