If you’re looking for a new healthy cooking method that uses very little or no oil and produces crispy foods, an air fryer can be a great option

Here are some air fryer cooking tips: 

1. Preheat for optimum cooking. Preheating ensures that the temperature and air flow will be at right levels and foods will cook well.

2. Don’t overcrowd the basket
and shake foods halfway through cooking time to ensure equal heat distribution and prevent unevenly cooked ingredients. 

3. Add the right amount of oil.
You only need 1-2 teaspoons for most recipes or 1-2 tablespoons for breaded items. Choose an oil that contains monounsaturated fat (which is healthier for your heart) such as olive, peanut or canola oil. 

4. Make fried veggie dishes that are tasty and packed with vitamins and minerals.

5. Prepare “from scratch” recipes. Convenience foods like frozen fries, fish sticks and chicken fingers are already fried, so cooking them in the air fryer doesn’t save any fat or calories.

6. Wash frequently. Wash your air fryer after each use. For easier cleanup, spray the basket with nonstick cooking spray prior to use
