Yes, There’s an Easier Way to Clean Your Air Fryer
Anyone who owns an air fryer knows how much of a game-changer it is. Because it's essentially a miniature convection oven, the user-friendly device offers a shortcut to crispy, crunchy snacks, last-minute dinners, and fluffy baked treats. But it turns out, Amazon shoppers have discovered a simple cleaning tool that makes air fryers even better: Airware's Reusable Liners.
The Airware liners are designed to keep food from sticking to your gadget's racks without interfering with airflow or heat distribution. Made of 100% silicone, the perforated mats are food-safe, naturally nonstick, and heat-resistant up to 430 degrees Fahrenheit. No matter if you're preparing gooey cinnamon rolls, juicy meatballs, or saucy wings, food will effortlessly release from the liners without any extra oil.

Best of all, the mats are dishwasher-safe, so there's no need to spend time soaking or scrubbing stuck-on foods. Users rave about how their Airware liners cut down on the frustrating mess of air frying, with one saying it "makes cleanup a breeze."
"These silicone mats are a game-changer," a second wrote. "Food doesn't stick (not even that ooey, gooey cheese that melts off slices of pizza) and cleaning is a snap. I just pop it in my dishwasher and voila!"

Many Amazon shoppers say they've converted from single-use parchment paper liners to the "wallet-friendly" liners, gushing about their superior results: "I hated using parchment paper because edges of the paper would fly up and burn, even with food on them. These silicone mats don't fly up and they are safe at high temperatures."
In addition to assisting with air frying, the flexible mats also work as pot holders, steamers, or trivets to protect your countertops. Basically, you know the versatile tool will earn its keep.
Available in both round and square shapes, the Airware Reusable Liners come in four different sizes that fit a variety of popular air fryers, including Cosori, Ninja, Instant Vortex, and Dash devices. And with prices starting at just $11, there's no reason why you shouldn't add this affordable kitchen accessory to your Amazon cart.
