If you are having problems with your Black & Decker air fryer, it can be quite frustrating. There are a few things that you can do to fix it. However, it is important to work methodically so that you do not accidentally energize something else.
Start by unplugging the appliance and examining it for damage. This may be as simple as a receptacle that has been damaged by grease or a power button that has become dislodged.
What are the air fryer functions
Air fryers are small kitchen appliances that circulate hot air to cook food. They work like a mini convection oven and are much faster than conventional ovens, often eliminating the need to preheat. They can also preserve flavor and make food crispier than conventional ovens, while avoiding soggy textures.
Unlike deep frying, which involves submerging foods in oil, air fryers use very little or no oil and still give foods a crispy finish. They are also healthier than regular ovens and microwaves, as they reduce fat content by up to 80%.
Many air fryers have additional functions beyond air frying, such as roasting, reheating, and baking. Some models even include a built-in multi-cooker that can also pressure cook and slow cook. This means you can finally retire your other small appliances!
However, it is important to note that not all foods are suitable for air frying. For example, fresh, leafy vegetables can easily lose their crunch and may burn. Also, if your food is covered in wet batter or cheese, it may drip onto the bottom of the appliance and cause a sticky mess. The same goes for bacon — it can ooze oil and end up in the nooks and crannies of your appliance.
