It is recommended to lift the basket out by its handle. You can then fill it up and put it back into the air fryer without having to touch down on the cooking surface. This will help you avoid burning your fingers. When taking food out of the basket, we recommend using a spatula or tongs to avoid accidentally damaging your air fryer through misuse. For detailed instructions on how to use this unit, please refer to your recipe card that comes with this product.

We hope you can understand our stance on this!

How do you make sure food is cooked evenly?
We recommend only using tongs to remove your food from its cooking surface without touching down on the baking surface itself. This means that you can take a finger off of your finger after removing it to prevent the popping sensation that occurs at times when you touch down on hot surfaces such as pans, fryers, etc. The popping sensation occurs when heat is still trapped in contact with your skin’s surface.

You will want to watch your food at all times while you are cooking so that you can see when it is done cooking without having to cut into it!
