Spray the bottom of the air fryer pan with non-stick cooking spray for easy clean up.

What kind of air fryer do you use?
We actually have 2 types of air fryers that we use and love!
If you are looking for a free-standing air fryer, we love the Cosori Air Fryer.
If you are looking for an air fryer lid that can attach to your Instant Pot, this Instant Pot Air Fryer Lid is the lid we love and use ourselves.
Both air fryers are great and will work with all air fryer recipes.
