Air Fry Cooking Chart

NOTE: Don’t see the food you’re looking for in the charts below? Find a similar food, and decrease cook time by 25%. For frozen foods, decrease the cook time on the packaging by 25%. For best results, check on food often, increasing cook time if necessary.

After cutting potatoes, allow raw fries to soak in cold water for at least 30 minutes to remove unnecessary starch. Pat fries dry. The drier the fries, the better the results.

For best results, shake or toss often.
To pause both zones while using SMART FINISH press the START/PAUSE button. To pause an individual zone while both zones are cooking, press the zone you would like to pause, then press the START/PAUSE button. To resume cooking, press START/PAUSE again. Use these cook times as a guide, adjusting to your preference.
Shake your food
We recommend shaking your food at least twice during the cooking cycle for best results.

OR
Toss with silicone-tipped tongs

NOTE: Don’t see the food you’re looking for in the charts below? Find a similar food, and decrease cook time by 25%. For frozen foods, decrease the cook time on the packaging by 25%. For best results, check on food often, increasing cook time if necessary.

NOTE: Be sure to follow recommended temperatures. Cooking ingredients at higher temperatures than recommended may result in smoke.

Dehydrate Chart

Using DualZoneTM Technology: SMART FINISH

SMART FINISH eliminates the need for back-to-back cooking. Now you can cook two different foods with two different cook times, and watch as they finish at the same time. Simply program each zone, and let the SMART FINISH feature do the rest.

NOTE: For all recipes in this chart, season with salt and pepper as desired.

NOTE: For your own best results, start checking food for doneness 2 minutes before cook time is complete. Stop cooking at any time if the desired level of crispiness has been achieved, but make sure any raw proteins have reached a food-safe temperature.
