Everyone and their mother appears to be enamored with their air fryer these days.

Even I, a former cynic, must admit that I now adore my air fryer. I mainly use my air fryer for roasting vegetables rather than cooking frozen items — but that’s another story for another day.

Another advantage of an air fryer is that it is extremely easy to clean.

Before we get into the details of how to clean an air fryer, here’s the TL;DR: dish soap and water. That is the best and most basic method of cleaning your air fryer, and it will remove any grease and filth.

That’s all there is to it. All you have to do now is clean your air fryer with dish soap and water. However, we’ve included some additional tips below to assist you with the technicalities.

1.Take out the basket and clean it.

Each air fryer is a little different, but they all have a pull-out drawer with an inset basket or grate to contain the food. Nonstick materials are commonly used for these components. Remove the drawer and basket/grate, then hand washes everything with soap and warm water. It’s critical to use a sponge or a soft cloth rather than anything abrasive. You don’t want any of the nonstick substances to come loose.

Now for the good news: this is usually a very straightforward procedure. The meal should come up easily because the components are nonstick. If something is truly stuck, I try to remove it with a fingernail or a paper towel, being careful not to touch the nonstick surface. This entire process takes no more than a couple of minutes for the model I own. To avoid muck build-up, I make sure to clean it after each use.

Then all you have to do is dry the basket and drawer and you’re ready to air fry again.

You might be able to put these air fryer parts in the dishwasher as well. Make sure to look into your exact model to see if it comes highly recommended. If you do use a dishwasher, make sure to load the components carefully to avoid damaging the nonstick surface.

2. Clean the heating element and the interior of the house.

This isn’t something you’ll have to do every time you use the device. However, you’ll want to clean the interior of your air fryer where the cooking drawer is put every now and then. While the drawer is out, wash the inside with mild, soapy water using a soft sponge or wet cloth. This will remove any stuck-on food from the cooking process as well as any remaining moisture. There shouldn’t be anything stuck on the top heating element of your air fryer, but if it does, wash it down with a moist cloth and dry it once the element has cooled down from the frying process.

3. Clean the air fryer’s exterior.

How do you clean an air fryer’s exterior? A big surprise awaits you: soap and water, applied with a sponge or towel. Simply wipe it down, dry it, and go about your business. If I don’t have any disinfecting wipes on hand, I use them instead. It doesn’t hurt because it’s only the outside of the appliance and not where you’ll cook.

That’s all there is to it when it comes to cleaning your air fryer.
