AirFrying is a healthy alternative to deep-frying in oil. A high-velocity fan and an upper heating element circulate air to prepare a variety of foods that are both delicious and healthier than traditional fried foods.
– AirFrying doesn’t require oil, but a light spray of cooking spray or drizzle of oil tossed with food can enhance browning.
– Toss Reminder is recommended when cooking large quantities that overlap and larger foods like chicken cutlets. Do not overload the basket; more surface area will result in faster cooking and better results.
– Foods will cook more evenly when they are cut into equal-size pieces with minimal overlap.
– An assortment of coatings can be used on AirFried foods. Some examples of different crumb mixtures include breadcrumbs (plain, seasoned, and panko), crushed cornflakes, potato chips, and graham crackers. Various flours (including gluten-free) and other dry foods like cornmeal work as well.
– When cooking proteins, marinades and juices will drip to the bottom of the basket. This is a great base for a gravy or pan sauce.
– When AirFrying greasy foods (e.g., bacon), grease will drain into the bottom of the AirFry basket. As a precaution, allow hot grease to cool in the basket before cleaning.
– Use tongs or a silicone spatula to remove food from the basket.
– Use the light/window feature to check on cooking food. The basket can also be removed to check on the food (this will pause the cooking until the basket is reinserted into the unit).

The chart lists recommended cooking times, temperatures, and portions for various types of foods that can be AirFried in the Cuisinart Basket AirFryer. If portions exceed recommendations, you can toss or flip foods occasionally while cooking to ensure the crispiest, most even results. Smaller amounts of food may require less time. For best AirFry results, periodically check on food through viewing window.


In addition to AirFrying, the Cuisinart Basket AirFryer can be used for baking, broiling, roasting, and more. To cook using these functions, simply select the function and use the time/temp arrows to select the desired time and temperature (up to 60 minutes). Some tips and recommendations on temperature and time are listed below.

When using the Cuisinart Basket AirFryer, cooking times may need to be reduced because of the convection fan’s high speed. Start checking foods about 5 to 10 minutes before the end of the suggested cooking time.

When making baked goods in the unit, we recommend:
– Using a heat-safe baking pan (not included) on the crisper plate.
– For recipes not specifically developed for this Cuisinart Basket AirFryer, we suggest cooking at a lower temperature (25°F to 50°F lower) than what the recipe indicates.

The Cuisinart Basket AirFryer can be used to broil beef, chicken, pork, fish, and more.

Use Broil to top-brown casseroles and gratins. For best results set the temperature to the highest setting (450°F). Keep a close eye on food as it browns quickly.

To roast vegetables and cuts of meat, set the temperature to 400°F.

– Always unplug the AirFryer from the electric outlet and allow it to cool completely before cleaning.
– Do not use abrasive cleaners, as they will damage the finish. Simply wipe the exterior with a clean, damp cloth and dry thoroughly. Apply the cleansing agent to a cloth, not directly onto the Basket AirFryer, before cleaning.
– To clean interior walls, use a damp cloth and a mild liquid soap solution or a spray solution on a sponge. Remove any residue from cleaners with a clean, damp rag. Never use harsh abrasives or corrosive products. These could damage the Basket AirFryer surface. Never use steel wool pads on interior of Basket AirFryer.
– AirFry basket and crisper plate are dishwasher safe. They can also be hand-washed in hot, sudsy water with a nylon scouring pad or nylon brush and thoroughly rinsed.
– Remove the crisper plate from the AirFry basket to easily access the bottom of the AirFry basket.
– Any servicing should be performed by an authorized service representative.


Why won’t my unit turn on?
– Make sure your unit is plugged into a functional outlet.
– Make sure the AirFryer basket is securely in place in the unit.
– Call Consumer Service

Why are fried foods not crispy or fried evenly?
– Some foods may require more oil than others. If not crispy enough, lightly spray, brush, or rub more oil on the food.
– Make sure food is spread evenly in a single layer in the AirFryer basket with no overlap. If food still overlaps, toss or flip food halfway through cooking cycle; use the Toss Reminder for an audio alert.
– Put the food in for additional cooking time. Make sure to check frequently until food reaches desired brownness.

Why is my food undercooked?
– If you put too much food in the basket, it may not cook in the suggested time. Try using smaller batches of food and single layers, rather than stacking food items on top of each other.
– If the temperature is too low, the food may not fully cook. For AirFrying, the ideal temperature is around 400ºF.

How do I clean tough-toremove food residue from the basket/crisper plate?
– To remove baked-on grease, soak the accessories in hot, sudsy water or use a nonabrasive cleaner. We recommend hand-washing these parts in hot, sudsy water with a nylon scouring pad or nylon brush and then thoroughly rinsing them, or washing in a dishwasher.

Why am I seeing an “out” error code on the display?
– If “out” is flashing on your display, make sure the AirFry basket is securely in place before selecting a function or preset.
