Why You Should Own Silicone Liners For Your Air Fryer
If you use parchment paper to line an air fryer basket, you could create a fire or just a big mess, so it's important to get familiar with safer alternatives. Some air fryers do come with a set of paper liners, and parchment paper is heat resistant until about 420 degrees Fahrenheit, but silicone is a more durable and safe choice overall.
Silicone mats are often punctured with holes that allow hot air to properly circulate through them, preventing your food from sticking to the air fryer basket. Silicone liners are also reusable, can be washed in the dishwasher, and act as a better buffer between the food and the air fryer basket to prevent your device from wear and tear.
Silicone liners are also heat resistant up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit, so you can safely cook most foods without worrying about the inside of your device catching on fire. These liners are also affordable — a three-pack runs as low as $10.95 — and you won't have to keep buying them over and over, since they're so durable.
