Experts have revealed the six foods that you should keep clear from your air fryer, with some drying instead of frying and others creating a huge mess…

Rice

Raw rice needs to be cooked in boiling water and air fryers aren’t typically designed for this.

Even placing water containers inside isn’t effective as the machines won’t reach a high enough temperature to boil the water.

Instead, cook the rice in a pan as normal, and then add to your air fryer to crisp it up.

Popcorn

Movie nights aren’t complete without a bowl of popcorn, and it is tempting to want to create this in your air fryer.

However, they can’t reach the high temperatures needed to pop the kernels.

You’ll need to use your microwave or stove for this one.

Bacon

If you are looking for a fry-up or bacon butty, you may also have to set your air fryer aside.

According to the Food Network, cooking bacon inside the machine can cause a huge mess.

Air blows the bacon fat all over the inside of the device, and you’ll be left dealing with the clean up.

Burgers

If you are looking to tuck into a delicious burger, you may wish to grab a frying pan instead.

Although you can get a medium-rare cook on the inside of the burger, the outside won’t have time to brown, claims Business Insider.

It’s best to use the oven or pan to achieve the perfect end result.

Raw vegetables

Most meals are enhanced with a side of vegetables on the side, but it can be tricky to cook raw veg in your air fryer, says Stephanie Pixley, deputy food editor of America’s Test Kitchen.

Chicken wings and a full chicken

Chicken wings sadly also don’t fare well inside an air fryer, as it dehydrates the meat.

Some have found it can lead to a “cracked and leathery mess.” Not ideal.

Stephanie also said that full chickens aren’t advised either.

This is because the sides closest to the heat source can “dry out or burn” before the other side cooks thoroughly.
