The length of time to preheat will depend on the temperature you want to cook at and the size of your air fryer. Most air fryers will take less than 5 minutes to preheat.
This will differ depending on what cut you are using, but generally speaking this means seasoning your meat and rubbing in a little oil. See below more specific methods for common cuts.
Cook for the calculated time using the estimates below. As all air fryers are different sizes and wattages, you may need a little more or less time. Being a relatively new cooking method, it’s important to recognise this and to treat the first trial with each cut as an experiment that can be perfected.
Rest your meat as you normally would. For a pork belly or roast, we would recommend approx. 10 minutes. For a steak or chops, 2 – 3 mins should suffice.
