Clean the Basket

The first step to preventing sticking in an air fryer is to make sure the basket is clean. Grease and food particles can build up in the basket, which can cause food to stick. To clean the basket, use a soft cloth and warm, soapy water. Rinse the basket thoroughly and dry it before using it again.

Use Non-Stick Spray

Using a non-stick spray or oil can help prevent food from sticking to the air fryer basket. Spray or brush a light coating of oil onto the basket before adding the food. This will create a barrier between the food and the basket, which can help prevent sticking.

Avoid Overcrowding

When adding food to the air fryer, make sure not to overcrowd the basket. If the food is too close together, it can cause it to stick together and make it difficult to remove. Make sure to leave enough space between the pieces of food so that they can cook evenly.

Flip the Food

Halfway through the cooking time, flip the food over to ensure that it cooks evenly. This will also help prevent sticking, as the food will be exposed to the hot air from all sides.

Use a Spatula

When removing the food from the air fryer, use a spatula to gently lift it out. This will help prevent the food from sticking to the basket and make it easier to remove.
