How to clean your Air Fryer after cooking eggs
Immediately clean out fryer basket using paper towels, a brush, and warm, soapy water.
Eggs can leave an oily residue on dishes and utensils, so coating your paper towel with distilled white vinegar or grease-cutting solution will make for easier clean-up.
If the air fryer has sat for a significant amount of time, then allow the fryer basket to soak inside the sink filled with warm soapy water and half a cup of distilled vinegar for approximately 30 minutes.
