Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • Be sure you create bite-size pieces that are all the same size. This allows them to cook evenly. 
  • Cook in batches. When cooking cauliflower bites they can touch a little bit because they will shrink as they cook, but you want to leave plenty of room in the Air Fryer so that the air can properly circulate and become crispy. 
  • Be sure to toss your basket halfway through cooking.
