Then we have a solution to your cooking woes: a multi-layer rack for your air fryer.
It proves to be an incredibly handy tool to cook multiple items simultaneously in an air fryer, allowing you to save time, energy, and electricity bills. You won’t regret investing in this valuable tool, but it can be complex if you haven’t encountered it already.
Don’t worry! In this step-by-step guide, we’ll walk you through setting up a tray and preparing food so you can make the most of your multi-layer rack for delicious, crispy, and varied food.
Let’s get started!
What You Need:
- Air Fryer
- Multi-layer rack
- Food items (e.g., chicken, French fries, vegetables, fish, etc.)
Step 1: Preheating
First, you must preheat the air fryer to your desired temperature and according to the recipe you plan to cook. It should take 2 to 3 minutes.
Step 2: Rack Assembling
When putting together the multi-layer rack, start by positioning the base tray on a level surface. After that, stack the extra layers on top of the base tray. Check that each layer is firmly attached before proceeding.
Step 3: Get Together the Food
Prepare the food items to cook. Wash them carefully to get rid of any potential debris. After washing, ensure to dry them and then season them as you like.
Step 4: Food Arrangement
Arrange the food items on the multi-level rack in a way that there must be adequate space between each of them to allow air to circulate around them.
Step 5: Place the Rack in Air Fryer
Place the multi-layer rack into the air fryer carefully, ensuring it is level and centered before starting the air fryer.
Step 6: Set the Timer
After setting the timer for the required time according to the recipe recommendation, you can kick back and take it easy while your air fryer does its job. Obviously, the cooking time will vary depending on the food items and the recipe. Generally, it shouldn’t be more than 20 minutes.
Step 7: When Cooking Time is Up
When the air fryer rings the bell for completing cooking time, carefully remove the multi-layer rack. Don’t forget to use oven mitts to avoid burning and any inconvenience.
Step 8: Serve the Food
Now your food is ready to serve. Transfer the food to your trays, serve the evenly cooked, delicious food, and enjoy.
If you want to significantly cut the time and effort you spend in the kitchen, investing in an air fryer with a rack accommodating multiple layers is a game-changer.
You can now cook many dishes at the same time without compromising the quality or taste by following these straightforward instructions. The time it takes to cook can change based on the recipe and the ingredients you use, but it usually takes between 10 and 20 minutes.
So, get the rack, sit back, and relax when preparing multiple food items at once.
