Soak the fryer pan and basket in warm water and cleaning liquid for ten minutes. After that, scrub as needed using a non-abrasive sponge or brush. Rinse then wipe dry using a paper towel. As for the exterior of the fryer, it usually do not need much cleaning since no oil is used. Just wipe to remove dust or anything that got stuck on it.
Aside from keeping your air fryer in good working condition, keeping it clean will also ensure that you are not forfeiting the product warranty. Just like most products, air fryers comes with a warranty that allows you to get replacements on parts and free repairs. However, if your appliance becomes damaged because of your negligence then the warranty becomes invalid. In addition, the air fryer does not come cheap so good maintenance ensures that you do not need to buy a new one sooner than you expect.
Consider investing in special cleaning tools specially designed to clean air fryers. These tools will allow you to clean the pan and basket with ease. This is often separately by the manufacturer of the air fryer. If the manufacturer does not offer the special cleaning tool, you can purchase those that were offered by other brands. This is an additional investment on your part, but it is worth it.
