PSA: To all our air fryer enthusiasts out there. If you’ve been wasting precious time cutting up and punching holes in your baking paper, air fryer liners are going to change your life — or at least make it easier to clean your fryer. If you already know what we’re about to tell you, we apologise, but the good air fryer-loving people need to know that air fryer liners exist, and they’re going to save you plenty of cleaning time.
Yep, that’s right. You can now buy yourself parchment paper (aka liners) that fit perfectly in the basket of your beloved air fryer and will keep your delicious food from sticking to the basket. You can purchase single-use ones that come in a range of different shapes and sizes, or you can get yourself a reusable one.
Just make sure you check the guidebook on your specific air fryer to make sure it’s safe to line with baking paper. It’s also worth noting that users don’t recommend putting the liners in your fryer while it preheats, as it could be a safety hazard.
If you’re keen to give them a whirl, we’ve rounded up a range of affordable options that’ll fit most air fryers.
