I’ll show you precisely how to prepare bacon in an air fryer if you didn’t know it existed.
If you try this method for cooking bacon, you might never cook bacon in any other way again—and I’m not even a big fan of bacon.
Why? It’s straightforward, largely hands-off, and the grease just falls off into the lower reservoir, making it much easier and less messy than cooking on the stove, in the microwave, or in the oven.
Additionally, if you want to, you can wash the two fryer parts in the dishwasher. Double-check your model for the dishwasher part.
However, my Avalon Bay Air Fryer (Amazon affiliate link) is dishwasher-safe. I chose that model because it has received a lot of positive reviews and wasn’t too expensive.
