How do You Use Liners for Air Fryers?
It’s advisable to use precut perforated parchment paper that’s made for your air fryer. If you can’t find one, measure the air fryer liner and cut to fit. It shouldn’t cover the whole bottom of the air fryer or go up the sides. It’s best if the liner is smaller than the basket. This will keep the food surrounded by hot air and liner from getting too close to the heating element. It’s also important to make sure whatever you’re preparing weighs down the air fryer paper liner to avoid it from flying around and hitting the coil. The same might happen if you preheat the air fryer with a liner on. In addition, check to see the maximum temperature the air fryer disposable liner can withstand.
