Cooking tips for air fryers

Make sure your air fryer’s frozen meatballs come out just right by following these quick tips. They will come in handy as you prepare each recipe in the air fryer!

  • Do not overfill the basket: Whenever you load your Airfryer basket with food, you always want to make sure that your food does not overlap with others. Make a layer below. When you do this, your food will cook more evenly and won’t have particularly wet or particularly crunchy parts. If you cook more batches with less in them, your meal will turn out better!
  • Shake: Shaking your food halfway through cooking will cook it more evenly. Don’t skip this step!
  • Clean up: Make cleaning easier by spraying it with some oil before putting your food inside. They also make parchment paper with holes specifically for the air fryer if you don’t want to use the oil!
