Easy Clean Up Options

If you’re looking for easy cleanup after making one of these quick dinners, I recommend one of these two options inexpensive options.

Parchment Paper Rounds

Parchment paper rounds come in the shape of your air fryer with holes inside of them to keep the air flowing.

They help tremendously with clean-up and allow you to remove the round and cook vegetables in the air fryer while your meat is cooking.

Silicone Basket

I use a silicone basket in my air fryer constantly. Stick the entire silicone basket in the air fryer and cook your dinner inside.

Most times the air fryer doesn’t need to be cleaned right after at all and the silicone basket goes directly into the dishwasher!
