Using the air fryer is a great way to save time in the kitchen during the school year when you’re already so busy with schooling, the kids’ activities, and the upcoming holidays. Not only will you cut down on dinner prep time, but in many cases, these dishes can help you cut fat, too. 

The next time you make burgers, steaks, or meatloaf, reach for your air fryer basket instead of a frying pan or grill. This appliance will quickly become your favorite thing in the kitchen.

Tips for Cooking in the Air Fryer

  • Use minimal oil. When it’s required, make sure your oil has a high smoke point and can withstand high temperatures. Avocado oil and regular vegetable oil are good choices. We don’t generally recommend olive oil for this purpose, but some recipes do call for it in small amounts.
  • Choose lean ground beef when possible to minimize grease spatter, which can cause your air fryer to get a little smoky.
  • To prevent smokiness, add a couple of tablespoons to the bottom of your air fryer basket when cooking something that involves grease draining off. Adding bread underneath the basket to catch the grease is another option.
  • Use a meat thermometer. This is so important, especially when you’re getting to know your air fryer. Ensure that your beef recipes come to a safe temperature of at least 145°F for steaks and roasts or 160°F for ground meats.
