There are many things, in many cases more than we can imagine, that we can put in air fryers. However, there are many others that we should avoid. This is because it can give rise to many headaches. So let’s tell you what you should really avoid putting in hot air fryers.
Hot air fryers: attention has to avoid placing it!
Water can be used sparingly in the fryer, however you will often find that there is little or no need to do this. In most cases it should be avoided as in combination with circulating air it can cause significant damage to the machine. Furthermore, it can lead to the appearance of rust.
Plastic is not suitable. If you put plastic of any kind in the Air Fryer it is likely to melt and cause a real mess or significant damage to your machine.
Sauces should also be avoided unless it comes from a marinade. If it’s consistent even better. It’s just that otherwise it can start to spread everywhere. As would happen with water.
However, sheets of kitchen roll paper or similar burn and can even cause a fire if you put them in the Air Fryer. So there are some alternatives I mentioned above that are more suited to your needs when using the machine.
If rust appears…
If, due to any of the behaviors mentioned above, rust starts to appear, there are some things we can do.
Put lemon or lime juice and a salt solution on the rust
Lemon or lime juice is highly acidic and can do an excellent job eating rust. Salt is quite harsh and abrasive, so the two combined can make an excellent homemade rust removal solution!
Cover the rusty area with salt. Pour lemon juice over top. Let the solution “marinate” on the affected area for several hours. Use the lemon peel for scrubbing.
Use white vinegar and water
Mix half a cup of distilled vinegar with 1 cup of water. Pour it into the fryer. Let this solution stand for about 10 minutes. After these 10 minutes have passed, let the fryer run for 5 minutes with this solution in it. When you reach the end, pour out the liquid and wipe the fryer with paper towels.
