Have you tried using an air fryer yet?  I was hesitate to try it as I thought surely it can’t be as good as a traditional fryer but I think it might be even better!  Now I love cooking in the air fryer.

Do air fryers make food crispy?

Essentially, the air fryer moves air quickly over food similar to broiling it in an oven that it gives the food a similar tastes to food that has been fried in oil. It is crispy and delicious without all of the oil!

The air fryer doesn’t require a large amount of oil like a traditional fryer requires so foods cooked in the air fryer generally have less calories and less fat than fried foods.

This air fryer is the one that I currently have and I really like it.  It works great and clean up is easy too.

We recently made this Air Fryer Salmon Recipe and it was amazing!

Can I stack wings in Air fryer?

You can stack them but more skin that is exposed the crispier the chicken wings will be. Due to this, I suggest you cook them in two batches.

Remember, the air fryer works by moving air quickly over the food. So in order for it to work correctly, you’ll want to keep as much part of the food exposed to the air as possible.

How many wings can you cook in an air fryer?

This recipe calls for 18 chicken wings and while you can stack them, I wouldn’t recommend it. It would be best to cook 9 wings at a time and do 2 batches. If you want crispy wings, this would be the best option.

Can you put foil in the air fryer?

The general rule for the air fryer is that if something is oven safe, it’s air fryer safe as well.

You CAN put foil in the air fryer.  However, I recommend not covering up the complete bottom of the air fryer basket.

The holes in the bottom of the basket help the air move freely around the food in the basket so you don’t want to cover them all up or it will reduce the effectiveness of this cooking process.

The foil does make clean up even easier once you have already enjoyed your food.
