Cleaning your airfryer per part

You don't have to use frying oil with an airfryer. This makes cleaning an airfryer a piece of cake. There are 3 parts that you have to clean to make sure your airfryer stays in mint condition. This article will explain how to clean each part step by step. As a finishing touch, you also clean the exterior of the airfryer.

The 3 parts you have to clean

1| Clean basket

You put the snacks in the basket, which means some food will remain there. That's why you first have to soak the basket for 10 minutes in a tub with hot water and some detergent. Afterwards, you can clean the basket on all sides with a soft sponge or brush. You could also use a soft brush. We don't recommend using abrasive sponges or degreasers. These will damage the non-stick coating.

Duration: 15 minutes

2| Clean inner pan

The inner pan is beneath the basket and collects the juice that comes from the food. You can clean the inner pan with a soft sponge, hot water, and basic detergent. Here, too, you shouldn't use an abrasive sponge to prevent the coating from damaging. After cleaning, you can dry the pan with a cleaning cloth.

Duration: 5 minutes

3| Clean heating element

To prevent your airfryer from spreading a burnt smell, remove the grease stains from the heating element. Remove the connector from the socket and put the airfryer on the table upside down. Open the drawer of the airfryer so you can access everything. Dampen a soft sponge with hot water and some detergent and squeeze it well. Clean the element. You can scrub more difficult corners with an old toothbrush. Dry the element with a cleaning cloth.

Duration: 5 minutes

Clean the outside

Wit an airfryer, you won't be bothered by splashes of oil on the casing, as there is no oil inside the machine. This means it's sufficient to wipe the exterior with a damp cloth, and perhaps with some cleaner. Don't use an abrasive sponge, as this will produce scratches. Dry the outside with a tea towel to prevent drying up.

Dishwasher-safe parts

Think the above steps are too much effort? If so, you can also clean the basket and inner pan in the dishwasher. Keep in mind that the non-stick coating wears more quickly and that some parts may become dull. On top of that, you also need to manually clean the heating element and the casing, since these are not dishwasher safe.

Tips for an extra fresh result

Doesn't the Airfryer smell very clean after you're done with it? If so, gently rub the basket and the inner pan with some lemon juice. This makes the frying odors disappear. Cut a lemon in half and rub the basket with one half and the inner pan with the other half. Let the part sit for half an hour so the lemon juice can do its job. Afterwards, rinse the parts with lukewarm water and dry them with a cleaning cloth.
