Mealthy Tip

The water in the base will keep the air fryer from smoking too much when the hot oil drips through and heats up. Air fryers heat your food with hot air mixed with high speed air circulation so you don't need as much oil in your cooking to achieve the same result as deep frying!

never cooking bacon another way. i put foil down on the base of my air fryer which made clean up super easy. don't know if that's possible with all AF models.

Honestly I thought this was much easier than cooking bacon in the skillet or in the oven. I cut the slices in half and used my air fryer racks instead of the basket to make this. Perfect for busy mornings.

I never cook bacon any other way. If you like this, wait until you've cooked sausages in the air fryer! Perfect.

Loving this! How many slices are in a serving? I did this in my Kalorik Maxx on the highest rack and it was done in 6 minutes :)
