Cooking Tips

Instant air fryer ovens cook all your favorite fresh and frozen oven-baked and deep-fried snacks—fast!

  • Use the preset Smart Programs as a starting point, and experiment with cooking times and temperatures to get the results you prefer.
  • Rotisserie-cooked foods and rotisserie accessories must be placed in the oven before touching Start.
  • With the exception of rotisserie-cooked foods, most foods benefit greatly from a preheated oven. Wait for the display to read Add Food before inserting food into the cooking chamber.
  • When cooking coated food items, choose breadcrumb batters over liquid-based batters to ensure that the batter sticks to the food.
  • For crispy, golden fries, soak fresh potato  ticks in ice water for 15 minutes, then pat dry and spray with cooking oil before adding them to the air fryer oven.
  • When baking cakes, pies, quiches, or any food with filling or batter, use an oven-safe baking dish and cover food with foil or an oven-safe lid to prevent the top from overcooking.
  • The drip pan doubles as a flat cooking tray. Use the drip pan when cooking fragile or filled food.
  • When cooking pizza, insert both cooking trays into the oven and place the pizza on the bottom cooking tray.
  • Pat moistened food items dry before cooking to prevent smoke, splatter, and excess steam.
  • Air frying can cause oil and fat to drip from foods. To prevent excess smoke, carefully remove and empty the drip pan periodically throughout cooking.
  • To ensure seasoning adheres properly, spray food items with cooking oil before adding seasoning.
  • All oven-safe cookware is safe to use in the air fryer oven.
