Aluminum foil can be used in an air fryer?

We recommend avoiding aluminum foil in air fryers when you can. It can block airflow and cause uneven cooking. It should only be used when the recipe calls for it.

Cooking times for air fryers

 We found that air fryer cook times vary significantly between brands. Due to this, we suggest cooking times that are wider than usual. Start checking at the first time listed and adjust as necessary.
