Alice's Top Tips


Buy the ready peeled canned potatoes and put them in the air fryer with some oil and seasoning. They will produce the best roast potatoes. 


Air fry chickpeas - A quick and easy quick recipe for a simple snack. Just get a tin of chickpeas and that's all you need! 

Air fryers are known for being great at a chip, fries and wedges however did you know you can also make your own crisps. 

After the kids have carved your pumpkins, take the seeds and pop them in the air fryer for a crispy snack. 


The whole point of a hack is that it makes a job easier, cleaner, faster, cheaper. Frying halloumi is a pain, constantly watching it and turning it until suddenly it burns. I just stick halloumi sticks in the fryer and press a button and they are perfect.


Not only can you add moisture to your food you can also take it away, by being able to dehydrate foods such as fruit, veg and meats. Meaning you can dry them out and keep them for longer. 


You can make a hard boiled egg! No need to boil the kettle or use water.


Air fryer brownies in half the time, donuts, cookies, fritters, pies, and churros and even cake is possible in an air fryer.


If the cleaning is the reason you haven't got an airfryer - this is the answer.
