Always read the manufacturer’s instructions about the amount of heat that the air fryer can withstand. That makes it easier for setting the time on the equipment
  • The recipe can do absolutely well without a drop of oil.
  • If you are going slow on starch you can also do away with extra ingredients like the all-purpose flour
  • Keep in mind that, a preheated air fryer reduces the length of time that your hash browns will cook, be on the lookout not to overcook your hash browns.
