Air fryer: so you can easily clean yours | Digital Trends Spanish

Air fryers have become almost essential in homes. These devices are capable of frying and baking all kinds of food in a healthy way, consuming much less than conventional ovens.

A few days ago we told you about our experience with Xiaomi’s air fryer, the Xiaomi Mi Smart Air Fryer (very good, by the way) and now we are going to tell you some tricks so that, if you get this air fryer or with any other model, you can easily clean it and make sure it lasts a long time.

You can only submerge the fryer basket in water.

With warm water and detergent

This is one of the best tricks par excellence and not only because it is effective, but because you will hardly have to make an effort to carry it out. The only thing you need is very hot water and a little dishwashing detergent.

Let the fryer cool down completely before you do anything with it. Once it is cold, take out the drawer and add the water and detergent to it. Stir and let it soak for 10 minutes so that the cochambre comes off. Finally, empty the drawer and clean with a cloth to remove any traces of dirt.

Never use metal instruments, abrasive sponges or wire brushes to clean the air fryer, as you could damage its nonstick coating.

With baking soda

If you have tried the first step, but the dirt is still well attached to the basket of your air fryer, it is time to try a more powerful product. One of the most used for years in homes around the world is baking soda.

Take a little bit and make a paste of baking soda with water, consistent enough to apply it to areas with more resistant dirt. Scrub with a very soft bristle brush (a toothbrush works well). Rinse the basket and dry with a clean cloth.

How often should I clean my air fryer?

It is recommended that every time you use the air fryer you wash its tray and basket with soap and warm water. You can also put these parts in the dishwasher as long as the device manual states that these parts are dishwasher safe.

It is recommended to clean the interior (once cold) and the exterior with a damp cloth with a little dish soap. Before putting each piece back in place, make sure they are dry.

In the event that it has a lot of dirt attached, you can try the methods that we have mentioned a few lines above.
