What is the function of an air fryer?
1. Fried food
The air fryer can be used to fry food, like fried chicken, french fries, fried meatballs, etc. can be made in the air fryer. We put the food to be fried into the air fryer and set the temperature and time. The air fryer can also be used to fry steaks, fry meats, and more.
2. Baked food
The air fryer is equivalent to a small oven, which can be used to bake food. For example, we can use the air fryer to bake pizza, bake egg tarts, bake chicken wings, bake cakes, bake sweet potatoes, etc.
3. Heat food
The air fryer can also be used to heat food, for example, the air fryer can be used to heat food such as bread, hamburgers, egg rolls, fried chicken, etc. When we use the air fryer to heat food, it should be noted that the air fryer usually cannot eat food with high water content such as leftovers, unless the product has a tender steam function.
4. Other functions

What to pay attention to when using an air fryer?
1. When we use the air fryer to cook food, we need to preheat the air fryer a few minutes in advance to heat the air in the air fryer to the temperature required for cooking. In this way, when we fry food in the air fryer, the food is heated more evenly and tastes better.
2. When cooking food with an air fryer, if you need to flip the food, you don't need to suspend the air fryer, we can directly take out the frying pan and flip the food. When taking out the frying pan, grab it by the fryer's insulated handle, and not touch the air fryer directly with your hands. Take out the frying pan on a heat-resistant countertop, not directly on a wooden table, etc.
