Preheating - Air Fryer

Using the Preheating Function

Preheating your Air Fryer is important for consistent and even results. Once you select your desired cooking mode or any other settings and press START, the light ring around the Start button will be on, and the Preheat indicator will show on the LCD. Once the oven has reached the set temperature, a tone will sound to let you know that you can insert food and begin cooking. Preheating is NOT necessary for all cooking modes.

To skip the Preheat and start the timer directly, push the START button a second time.

NOTE: Automatic Preheat is not programmed for Dehydrate, Keep Warm, Reheat, Toast and Bagel functions.

Additional Information

  • Old products used to shut off automatically after preheat was finished. To fix that, this product starts selected cooking mode as soon as preheating ends, with time counting down. This is done to avoid an extended waiting time with the oven running if the start was not pushed.
