Types of Food for Hot Air Frying
Types of Meats and By Products
Packaged and premade meat items like breaded fish and chicken, premade meatballs and patties, hams, cured and deli meats, packaged bulk sausages or seasoned ground meat mixtures can all be cooked in the Air Fryer.
Frozen and fresh meat types including different cuts of beef, pork, poultry, fish and seafood can also be cooked in the Air Fryer, but make sure to only use small and thin cuts of meat ingredients and varieties that are low in fat. Avoid greasy meat items like sausages and patties with high fat contents, and any cut of meat with thick fat.
Fresh or packaged meat items can be fried, roasted and grilled in the Air Fryer.
Fruits and Vegetables
Fresh fruits and vegetables can all be cooked in the Air Fryer as long as the right attachment or accessory is used.
Use the fryer basket in roasting or air frying fruits and vegetables such as making crispy potato and apple chips, roasting fresh produce like potato wedges and bell peppers, and other non-greasy varieties.
Fruit and vegetable items that are prepared with marinades, sauces and other liquid ingredients can be cooked using the grill pan or baking dish accessory.
Packaged, Premade or Ready to Cook Foods
The Air Fryer can also cook ingredients like frozen potato hash browns, potato fries and cheese sticks. Thawing is not necessary when frozen goods are cooked with the appliance, but extended cooking time is needed.
Ready to bake or oven ready foods are also suitable for air frying. Premade crust for pies, dough for pizzas and breads can all be cooked using the Air Fryer.
Premade Baking Mixes
Baking mixes for pancakes, cookies, cupcakes, muffins, brownies, breads and pastries are also suitable for air frying but baking time is usually reduced compared to conventional cooking. When baking, you can also line the fryer basket with foil or parchment paper and can also use oven-safe containers in baking cupcakes, muffins, pies and cakes.
