Although air fryers from 19459003 (19459004) consume significantly less oil than conventional fryers, they can still be messed up by splashing water and droplets.
A sticky, oily film can make cleaning this device a bit difficult. To clean your air fryer inside and out, do the following:
Rub it off
First, you need to absorb oil that could solidify on your deep fryer. Pull the plug out of the socket, grab some newspapers and wrap them into a ball. Allow the device to rub well inside and out. This removes most of the oily residue.
Next, go over the outside of the device with a disinfectant wipe or magical eraser. Wiping removes residual oils and dust. Do not worry about removing the inside with a wiper or magical eraser. We will take care of the interior in the next steps.
Wash pan and frying basket
Now remove the pan and basket (some models also have a tray that you can clean) and wash thoroughly. Normally, you can put these two items in the dishwasher, but check your manual in any case. If they are dishwasher safe, always place them on the top rack during a normal cycle.
Soak the pan and basket by hand in warm water with a few drops of dish soap. Then wipe with a sponge or dishcloth and rinse with warm water. Set pan and basket to dry.
Use a magic eraser or disinfectant cloth while drying to clean the heating element and the areas where the basket and pan are located.
You can also clean the areas with hot water and a cleaning cloth. Just make sure that you do not use a detergent that needs to be rinsed, as you can not put your air fryer under running water, and "rinsing" by wiping with a damp cloth will not remove all detergent residue.
If there are sticky remains on the heating element, scrub it with an old toothbrush or a soft brush. Do not touch it with some abrasion, otherwise you can leave scratches.
When everything is clean and dry, you can put the pan and basket back in their place.
