*Versus AF150
Do I have to shake the air fry basket while cooking?
Yes. It is important to shake or rotate your food for consistent browning and crispiness. For best results, follow the recipe or cooking chart to find out how often you should shake or rotate ingredients while cooking.
What materials are the air fry basket, crisper plate, and unit's exterior made of?
The basket and crisper plate are made of aluminum with a nonstick ceramic coating. The unit's exterior is BPA free and uses FDA-approved food-safe plastic.
Will the outside of the unit get hot?
Although the outside of the unit will heat up during the cooking process, the control panel and air fry basket handle will remain safe to touch.
How many cooking functions are included with the unit?
The unit has 7 different cooking functions: Max Crisp, Air Broil, Air Fry, Dehydrate, Air Roast, Bake, and Reheat (Max Crisp and Air Broil not included in all models).
How do I clean the unit?
To clean the main unit and the control panel, wipe them clean with a damp cloth. The air fry basket, crisper plate, and any other accessories can be washed in the dishwasher. If food residue is stuck on the basket or crisper plate, place them in a sink filled with warm, soapy water and allow to soak. Thoroughly air-dry or towel-dry all parts after cleaning.
Can I pull out the air fry basket to check on food during cooking?
Yes. We recommend checking on your food regularly throughout the cooking process. Simply pull out the basket and shake or rotate the food. The timer will pause automatically and the heater and fan will shut off when the basket is removed. When you are done, slide the basket back into place. The timer will start and the unit will automatically resume cooking.
When should I use Max Crisp instead of Air Crisp?
For best results, use Max Crisp when cooking prepackaged frozen foods, such as french fries or chicken nuggets.
How do I convert conventional oven temperatures to the Air Fryer Max XL?
Reduce the cook temperature by 25°F.
