10 Mistakes Almost Everyone Makes with Their Air Fryer 

Overcrowding the Basket: Putting too much food in the air fryer basket can prevent proper air circulation, resulting in uneven cooking and potentially undercooked food.

Not Preheating: Just like with traditional ovens, preheating your air fryer helps ensure that your food cooks evenly and thoroughly.

Using Too Much Oil: While air fryers require less oil than traditional frying methods, using too much oil can still lead to greasy or soggy results.

Not Shaking or Flipping the Food: To ensure even cooking, it's important to shake or flip your food halfway through the cooking process.

Using the Wrong Temperature: Different foods require different cooking temperatures in the air fryer.

Not Using Parchment Paper or Aluminum Foil: Lining the air fryer basket with parchment paper or aluminum foil can help prevent sticking and make cleanup easier.

Neglecting to Clean the Air Fryer Properly: Regular cleaning is essential for maintaining your air fryer and preventing the buildup of grease and food residue.

Not Checking for Doneness: It's important to check your food for doneness before serving, especially when cooking meat or poultry.
