Tips for converting recipes for the air fryer

Preheating your air fryer

Recipes for the conventional oven almost always require preheating. Some brands of air fryers state that no preheating is required. However, I have found that I do usually get better results when cooking in a preheated air fryer, and since it only takes a couple of minutes to preheat an air fryer (just turn it on while you are finishing the prep).

Using oil

The action of the hot air when air frying helps food to crisp up more easily than when cooking in a regular oven. For this reason you can often get away with using less oil when roasting compared with what you would need for an oven. I often spritz food with oil for air frying rather than coating it with oil as you might for a traditional roasting recipe.

You can check on the food halfway through cooking, and add an extra spritz of oil if it looks like it needs crisping up a bit more.

Don’t overcrowd the basket

Another difference between cooking in an air fryer and cooking in a conventional oven is that air fryers require air to be able to circulate freely around the food you are cooking.

For this reason, don’t overcrowd the basket. If the food is piled up, the remember to shake the food one or two times during cooking to redistribute the food and allow all surfaces to cook evenly.
