Does your air fryer also face the problem of excessive smoke emission? As a seasoned air fryer manufacturer, HYSapientia understands the various troubles users encounter when using air fryers. Every time you prepare to enjoy the healthy and delicious food made with an air fryer, only to find the kitchen filled with thick smoke, the feeling of frustration and helplessness is overwhelming. Smoke not only affects the kitchen environment but can also have adverse effects on health. We often receive feedback from users seeking ways to reduce smoke emissions. Don’t worry! In this blog, we will delve into how to effectively reduce the smoke emissions from your air fryer. We will provide a series of practical tips and tricks, whether you are a novice or an experienced user, to make your cooking experience more pleasant and healthy.


Choosing the Right Air Fryer Ingredients and Oils

Choosing Low-Fat Ingredients

Choosing low-fat ingredients is key to reducing smoke emissions from your air fryer. High-fat ingredients tend to produce a lot of smoke at high temperatures, so it is recommended to choose some low-fat ingredients such as chicken breast, fish, and vegetables. Chicken breast, with its low-fat content, is ideal for air frying. You can cut the chicken breast into chunks or strips, marinate it with a small amount of oil and seasonings, and then cook it. Selecting fish varieties with lower fat content, such as cod and salmon, can also help. You can sprinkle some lemon juice and pepper on the fish to enhance the flavor while reducing smoke. Vegetables like broccoli, carrots, and eggplant can be cut into appropriate sizes, tossed with a small amount of olive oil, and placed in the air fryer. Low-fat ingredients won’t release excessive oils at high temperatures, effectively reducing smoke production.


Using Healthy Oils

Selecting the right oils is also crucial. Using healthy oils such as olive oil and coconut oil can reduce smoke and enhance the taste and nutritional value of the food. These oils are more stable at high temperatures and are less likely to produce a lot of smoke. Olive oil, with its excellent stability at high temperatures, is suitable for use in an air fry oven. You can lightly coat the ingredients with olive oil before cooking, which not only reduces smoke but also makes the food crisper. Coconut oil is also a healthy choice, particularly suitable for desserts and Asian cuisine. You can use coconut oil when making fried banana slices or coconut shrimp, reducing smoke while adding flavor.


Cooking Techniques to Reduce Air Fryer Smoke Emissions

Pre-treating Ingredients

Properly pre-treating ingredients before cooking can significantly reduce smoke emissions. For example, removing excess fat from the ingredients and patting them dry with paper towels can reduce the release of oils and moisture during cooking, thereby reducing smoke. When handling chicken thighs or pork chops, you can use a knife to remove visible fat, so that it does not melt excessively during cooking, reducing smoke. Particularly for frozen ingredients, defrost them first and pat dry with paper towels or cloth to prevent moisture from evaporating and forming smoke.


Cooking in Batches

Avoid placing too many ingredients at once to ensure that hot air can circulate fully. Overloading the air fryer can hinder airflow, leading to more smoke. For example, when making french fries, you can cook them in two or three batches, each time placing only a thin layer of fries. This ensures that each fry is evenly heated and effectively reduces smoke. If you need to cook multiple types of ingredients simultaneously, start with those with less oil, such as vegetables, and then cook the oilier meats, avoiding an increase in smoke.


Reducing Oil Splatter

Using low-temperature preheating and gradual heating techniques can reduce oil splatter. Do not start cooking at high temperatures directly; instead, preheat at medium-low temperatures and gradually increase the temperature. Before cooking, preheat the air fryer to a medium-low temperature (about 150℃), allowing the ingredients to heat slowly and reduce sudden oil splatter. After placing the ingredients in the preheated air fryer, you can gradually increase the temperature by 20-30℃ every few minutes until reaching the desired cooking temperature.


Closed Cooking

Using lids or aluminum foil to cover the ingredients can effectively reduce oil splatter and smoke. During cooking, you can wrap the ingredients in aluminum foil, which retains moisture and flavor while reducing oil splatter and smoke. Some air fryers come with specialized lids; using these lids can reduce smoke escape and better control cooking temperature and time.


Attention to Ingredient Pairing and Low-Smoke Seasoning

Choosing the Right Seasonings

Some seasonings can produce more smoke at high temperatures, so choosing low-smoke seasonings can effectively reduce smoke. High-sugar seasonings like honey and syrup tend to caramelize and produce a lot of smoke at high temperatures. You can opt for low-sugar or sugar-free seasonings such as lemon juice and vinegar. Wet seasonings like soy sauce and cooking wine can evaporate and produce smoke at high temperatures, so you might choose dry spices like black pepper and rosemary.


Ingredient Pairing Techniques

Reasonable ingredient pairing can reduce the use of oils during cooking, thereby reducing smoke. Cooking vegetables and meats together can allow vegetables to absorb some of the oils released by the meat, reducing smoke. For example, you can cook broccoli with chicken. Using whole grains (like whole wheat bread and brown rice) with protein ingredients (like eggs and fish) reduces the reliance on oils.


Proper Use of Auxiliary Equipment and Materials

If you really can't stand the thick and pungent smell of smoke from your kitchen appliances, HYSapientia       may be able to recommend some highly efficient smoke-cleaning equipment.

Installing Smoke Filters

Installing smoke filters in your air fryer can effectively filter out smoke generated during cooking. There are various smoke filters available for air fryers on the market. When choosing, pay attention to their high-temperature resistance and filtering effectiveness. Smoke filters need to be replaced regularly to ensure continuous effective filtering. Based on usage frequency, it is recommended to replace them every 3-6 months.


Using Cooking Paper or Silicone Mats

Cooking paper and silicone mats can absorb excess oils, reducing smoke production. When cooking, you can place a layer of cooking paper at the bottom of the air fryer basket to absorb extra oils and reduce smoke. Silicone mats are heat-resistant and easy to clean, and can be reused. Placing a silicone mat under the ingredients can effectively reduce oil splatter and smoke.


Appropriate Ventilation Equipment

Opening the kitchen range hood or using portable ventilation equipment while cooking can effectively reduce smoke accumulation in the kitchen. Ensure the range hood is on and set to high while using the air fryer to maximize smoke extraction. Placing a portable air purifier in the kitchen can help filter smoke and odors from the air.


Regular Maintenance and Cleaning

Cleaning the Air Fryer Interior

Regularly cleaning the interior of the air fryer can prevent the accumulation of food residues and oils, thereby reducing smoke emissions. After each use, let the air fryer cool down, then remove the basket and tray and clean them with warm water and detergent, drying them before putting them back. Conduct deep cleaning periodically, including cleaning the internal heating elements and fan parts, to prevent oil buildup.


Regular Maintenance

Maintaining the air fryer in good condition through regular maintenance ensures its proper functioning and reduces smoke emissions. If the air fryer has a filter, check and replace it regularly to maintain its filtering effectiveness. Regularly check the fan’s operation to ensure it functions correctly, preventing smoke problems caused by fan malfunctions.
