Can You Put Paper Towels in an Air Fryer?

You should not put paper towel into your air fryer. The heat in an air fryer can be very high and the paper towel can catch on fire.

What can you use instead of paper towel in your air fryer?

If you’re looking for an alternative to paper towels in your air fryer, there are a few options available. Parchment, baking or wax paper can all be used to keep your oven clean and prevent food particles from sticking to it. These towels are resistant against high temperatures and will not be burned like a regular paper towel.

Other things you shouldn’t put in your air fryer

We recommend only using your air fryer for frozen food, baking cookies, or cooking bacon. This is because air fryers can have problems with overcooked food, wet batters, and cheese. If you try to cook any of these in your air fryer, you may end up with a mess or even damage your appliance.

How do you know if the heat in your air fryer is too high?

If you’re not sure whether the heat in your air fryer is too high, there are a few things you can look for.

  • Check to see if the food is cooking too quickly. If it’s browning or burning too quickly, the heat is probably too high.
  • See if the food is sticking to the basket or the sides of the air fryer. If it is, that’s another sign that the heat is too high.
  • If the air fryer is making too much noise, that’s also an indication that the heat is too high. If you notice any of these things, turn the heat down and see if the problem improves.
