The air fryer is one of the most useful kitchen appliances that is definitely worth the investment because it’ll save you time and energy in the kitchen. In case you’re new to air frying,  here are some common beginner mistakes to avoid.

Using Too Much Oil

For most air fryers, only one or two teaspoons of oil will be enough to cook tasty meals, so don’t make the mistake of using too much oil.

Only Using it to Make Fried Food

Most people don’t know that the air fryer can be used for so much more than just frying food. Use this kitchen appliance to make hard-boiled eggs, gnocchi, ravioli, or tasty desserts such as lava cakes or chocolate chip cookies.

You Don’t Preheat Your Air Fryer

Don’t forget to give your air fryer at least five minutes to heat to the proper temperature in order to cook delicious and crispy dishes.

Not Reheating Food in the Air Fryer

Keep in mind that your air fryer is much more versatile than you think and it can save you a lot of time and trouble in the kitchen. The air fryer can be pretty useful for reheating leftovers like meat or fries in just a few minutes.
