Q. My food didn’t cook?
A. Make sure the basket is fully inserted during cooking. For consistent browning, make sure ingredients are arranged in an even layer on the bottom of the basket with no overlapping. Shake basket to toss loose ingredients for consistent crispiness. Cook time and temperature can be adjusted at any time during cooking. Simply press the TIME or TEMP buttons and rotate the dial
Q. My food is burned?
A. For best results, check progress throughout cooking, and remove food when desired level of brownness has been achieved. Remove food immediately after the cook time is complete to avoid overcooking
Q. When should I use Max Crisp instead of Air Fry?
A. For best results, use Max Crisp when cooking prepackaged frozen foods such as French fries or chicken nuggets.
