The air fryer has quickly become a staple in many kitchens, winning people over by offering a healthier approach to cooking without compromising on taste.

This versatile appliance can cook crispy fries, chicken, vegetables, and even bake goods to perfection. Its simple operation and ability to prepare a wide range of dishes make the air fryer indispensable in the kitchen.

Experts now have an important warning: You must never leave your air fryer plugged in when not in use.

Many people are unaware that air fryers, like many other kitchen appliances, continue to draw power even when they are not actively in use if they remain plugged in.

James Longley, CEO of Utility Bidder, explains to LADbible: "Like many other kitchen appliances, air fryers continue to use power even when not actively in use if they remain plugged in."

Lydia Mallinson, Marketing Manager at ZWILLING, adds: "As long as the plug is inserted in the socket, there is live voltage in any appliance."

This includes air fryers.

It is important to unplug your air fryer when it is being cleaned or not in use to prevent electrical issues or even a fire hazard.

This way, you can continue to enjoy all the delicious dishes your air fryer can prepare without worrying about safety.
