Mrs Hinch fans share 11p air fryer cleaning tip which ‘works wonders’

Express shares how to clean air fryers in five minutes

Although air fryers don’t use oil to cook the food, the grease dropping from the food can spoil the basket and pan over time.

If this isn’t cleaned regularly, it can become stubborn, making it really hard work to remove.

Taking to the Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips Facebook page online, Trish Davidson said: “My air fryer is so dirty.

“I use liners for some items but often just shove the food in there to cook. I’ve tried washing up liquid but it hasn’t worked, does anyone recommend anything else?”

The post attracted more than 30 comments from fellow cleaning enthusiasts, with the most common response recommending dishwasher tablets.

Magella Rourke wrote: “I soaked mine overnight with hot water and a dishwasher tablet.

“Then gave it a good scrub after using Elbow Grease. Mine is a glass one, it’s ideal.”

Elizabeth Davis wrote: “While you think soaking should work, it often doesn’t, you need to take it up a notch and use something like a dishwasher tablet.

“Using a dishwasher tablet with some hot water works wonders to remove grease and grime.”

Avril Scott added: “Dishwasher tablets are great to get rid of grease, I use them to clean pots and pans as well as stained dishes too.”

Britons should make sure they are using the hard dishwasher tablets, rather than the pods for this trick.

Dishwasher tablets can be picked up from Asda at £4 for 30 tablets, working out to be very affordable.

Lidl also sells dishwasher tablets at £3.39 for a pack of 40, working out to cost 11p each.

Simply put hot water into the air fryer basket along with the dishwasher tablet and leave it to work for just 10 minutes.

If scrubbing is required, lightly scrub the stubborn marks before rinsing under clean water and drying.
