Why Do Air Fryers Smell?

Air fryers use a heating element to circulate hot air around food, cooking it evenly on all sides. However, when you first start using an air fryer, it is common for it to release a strong smell. This is due to the fact that the air fryer is new and the plastic components are still settling. After a few weeks of use, the smell should start to fade away.

How long will it take for the smell to fade away?

It really depends on how strong the smell is and how often you use your air fryer. If you use it frequently, the smell should fade pretty quickly. However, if you use it only occasionally, the smell may linger for a while. There are a few things you can do to help get rid of the smell:

  • Place a bowl of white vinegar inside the air fryer and let it run for a cycle.
  • Place a bowl of baking soda inside the air fryer and let it run for a cycle.
  • Clean the air fryer basket and pan with soapy water and a scrub brush.
  • Leave the air fryer door open for a while to air it out.

If the smell is really strong, you may want to try one of these methods a few times until the smell completely goes away.
