Sur La Table Air Fryer Cooking FAQs

Does the Sur La Table Air Fryer Need to Preheat?

Yes, the Sur La Table air fryer oven should preheat before cooking. The preheating time may vary depending on the temperature required for your recipe, but it typically takes 3-5 minutes.

Preheating ensures that the oven reaches the intended temperature before you add the food, which helps to ensure even cooking and browning.

Can I Put Foil in the Sur La Table Air Fryer?

Yes, you can use foil in the Sur La Table air fryer oven. However, it is important that you don’t fully block the entire tray or rack with the foil, as reducing air flow will lead to foods not cooking correctly.

Avoid placing foil over the heating element or covering the air fryer completely with foil. Best practice is just to wrap the food in foil, and then place that on the tray instead of wrapping the tray itself.

Can I Bake in My Sur La Table Air Fryer?

Yes, the Sur La Table air fryer oven is capable of baking. To bake in the air fryer, select the appropriate temperature and time for your recipe, and use the baking function.

This air fryer actually has a variety of cooking functions, including air frying, baking, roasting, broiling, and dehydrating.

Some baked goods can be cooked on either the air fry or bake setting, so make sure to check your recipe for details.

Can You Toast Bread in the Sur La Table Air Fryer?

Yes, you can toast bread in the Sur La Table Air Fryer oven using the air fryer basket or tray. Simply place the bread in a single layer and set the air fry setting for 5 minutes at 400°F.

You may need to flip the bread halfway through cooking to ensure even toasting. Make sure to not overlap the edges of the bread or they won’t toast correctly.

Can You Use Parchment Paper in a Sur La Table Air Fryer?

Yes, you can use parchment paper in the Sur La Table Air Fryer oven. Parchment paper can help to prevent food from sticking to the air fryer basket or tray and can make cleanup easier.

Make sure to cut parchment paper to size to fit well in the basket or tray, and weigh it down with the food. This should prevent it from coming into contact with the heating element, which could cause a fire.

Can You Cook Bacon in a Sur La Table Air Fryer?

Yes, you can cook bacon in a Sur La Table air fryer. Air fry at 400°F for about 8 minutes, flipping the bacon halfway through cooking.

Cooking time may be adjusted based on preference for how crispy you like your bacon. Make sure to clean the grease out well afterwards to avoid smoking.

What Are the Functions of the Sur La Table Air Fryer?

The functions on the Sur La Table air fryers vary between models. All models have an air fry setting. Other options can include roast, bake, broil, reheat, dehydrate, or rotisserie.

Often there are presets which set the time and temperature for certain foods. Common presets include chicken, meat, vegetables, fish, fries, toast, or pizza.

How Do You Cook Frozen Pizza in a Sur La Table Air Fryer?

To cook frozen pizza in a Sur La Table air fryer, preheat the air fryer to 400°F to ensure the bottom gets warm. Then, place the frozen pizza in the air fryer and cook for approximately 7 minutes until browned and the interior reaches 165°F.

This assumes a round, personal-sized pizza. The cooking time can vary slightly based on your specific air fryer model, as well as the brand, size, and shape of your frozen pizza, so adjust as needed.
