DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) - Dietitian Katie Schaeffer, RD, LD demonstrates how to use a newer kitchen gadget, the air fryer!

What can an air fryer be used for?

Cook recipes from scratch, provide friend texture to foods with a fraction of the oil, reheat foods, and cook frozen foods.

Tips on using air fryer:

  • Remember to preheat the air fryer
  • Use oil on foods unless manufacturer instructions specify not to; some air fryers prohibit aerosol spray cans due to chipping
  • Do not overcrowd the air fryer basket
  • Shake the basket during cooking for even baking
  • Use a thermometer to test the temperature of food
  • Reheat foods in the air fryer instead of the microwave for crispier texture
  • Cook foods in a single layer
  • Make sure there is at least 5-inches of space around air fryer
