Air Fryer Temperature
This might seem like an unnecessary section, but one thing I have learned from running a food blog and using the oven every single day is that all ovens very in how hot they get and quickly they cook something. The air fryer is no different.
We have the Ninja Air Fryer and we absolutely love it. However, I will say that the basket is a little on the small side, but works for two people. If you have a bigger family or prefer to batch cook things for meal prep I would splurge for a bigger basket. Our Ninja also runs really hot compared to others so this air fryer cookie took only 4 minutes where it could take up to ten minutes for you!
The more you use your air fryer the better in tune with it you’ll become to understanding if you need to cook something longer or shorter.
Baking In The Air Fryer
We cook tons of different meals in the air fryer. Steaks, chicken thighs, wings, salmon and all sorts of veggies tossed in animal fat. However we are pretty new to baking in the air fryer, and I must say, it’s going really well! I never would have imagined biscuits and desserts were possible. You can get by without an oven and a microwave if you the air fryer.
Some tips I have for baking (and general use) in the air fryer are:
- Preheat the air fryer for 2-3 minutes
- Line the bottom with parchment paper or grease
- Don’t over crowd
- If cooking meat or veggies flip half way through

Any dessert that allows you to stay on your diet and makes your diet more sustainable is worth making and consuming regularly.
