Do I have to remove food from an empty Gourmia air fryer before using the next time?
You do not need to empty or clean any parts before using it again.
You can place food inside your air fryer and use it immediately.
If you do not want to use the air fryer again, you would like to remove all parts except for the basket, lid and base. You can then wash this with warm water (up to 2 cups of water) and let it dry on its own prior to storing in a safe location out of reach of children.
How do I properly clean the Gourmia air fryer?
Remove all parts from the air fryer and rinse them in warm, soapy water. Next, put on a paper towel or cloth to dry all parts including the basket, lid, and base.
First, let your air fryer cool down completely. Then hold it upside down over a sink with handles so that it can drip out any excess water.
Next, fill the air fryer with 2 cups of warm water to create a soapy solution. Place all parts, except for the base in warm water. You can leave the lid off while you clean. This will let you clean the lid separately in cleaner water.
Let parts soak for several minutes if they are very dirty or if there is extra grease on them. If not, you may only need to soak them for 10 seconds.
After soaking, you will want to remove as much as the water as possible by letting small amounts of water drip out.
Then clean each part with a soft, non-abrasive sponge and wipe off any remaining water.
Air dry the parts and then store them in a clean, dry place.
