TOP TIPS ON USING AIR FRY MODE

Tips for getting the best results with air fry mode in your GE Profile oven

Air frying is the big buzz for cooking enthusiasts. When you air fry, you use less oil and end up with a healthier, crispy, crunchy dish. And now, you can do this in select models of GE Profile ranges and ovens. Using our in-oven air fry mode may work slightly different than regular baking or even using a countertop air fryer. To help you create your crunchiest, tastiest air fried foods, we’ve compiled a list of tips to help you get the best results. So, read these pointers, grab your favorite recipe, and start air frying.

COOKING WITH NO PREHEAT AIR FRY

  • With air fry mode, you won’t need to preheat. Just put your food directly in a cold oven and start cooking. If you're air frying multiple batches, keep a close eye on those cooked after the first batch. They may cook more quickly and can burn.

  • If you’re using a recipe meant for a countertop air fryer, you may need to cook your food a little longer or at a slightly higher temperature.

  • To cook packaged foods using the air fry mode, use traditional oven cooking instructions for the temperature and cook time. But remember, don't preheat!

  • We recommend using a rack position that places your food in about the center of the oven. For thicker foods, or if you notice foods cooking too quickly, try a lower rack position.

  • While cooking, if you notice your food is browning too quickly, move it to a lower rack position and/or lower the temperature slightly.

RECOMMENDED BAKEWARE

  • Dark baking or sheet pans are recommended for in-oven air fry. They absorb more heat and promote better browning and crisping.

  • If you do use a baking basket or grid, make sure you put a broil-safe pan on the rack underneath it to catch any drippings.

  • No need to grease your baking sheets—doing this may actually create a greasy film that bakes onto your pan.

  • Lining your baking sheet with parchment paper also works well when air frying in your oven.

PREPARING YOUR FOOD

  • Place your food in a single layer on your baking sheet. Try not to overlap if possible and don’t crowd the pan.

  • Spritzing your food with a light coating of oil will help it crisp up. You can use either aerosol oil in a spray can or even try a spray bottle. Use a high-heat tolerant oil. We used avocado oil with great results. Note: Foods with breading and panko may require a more liberal coating of oil to cook and crisp properly.

  • When making breaded foods, panko breadcrumbs crisped up the best for us when we made our recipes. They are lighter and airier and crisp quickly in the air fry heat.

  • If your dish requires a sauce, we recommend applying it AFTER cooking. Sauces may heat too quickly in air fry and will likely burn—especially sugary sauces like BBQ sauce, teriyaki, etc.
