  • Battered foods – you should avoid putting raw batter in your air fryer, it will make a mess (and let’s face it, who wants extra mess?) and will cook unevenly.

  • Leafy greens – spinach, kale and all those other deliciously leafy greens tend to cook unevenly in the air fryer. They also have a tendency to go flying whilst inside the machine due to the use of high speed hot air. Leafy greens in the air fryer also have a tendency to burn, if youtube wanting delish veggies in the air fryer stick to broccoli, zucchini, eggplant or anything with a bit of weight.

  • Cheese – unless you’re coating your cheese in something, think these cheesy dumplings for example… raw cheese put in the air fryer will melt into a puddle and create a big mess. Stick to a toastie machine or the humble grill if you’re wanting melty cheese sans mess.
