Air fryers are a "healthier" alternative to deep frying as you won't use excess oil. But in terms of health it all depends on the recipe you are making.
Select the temperature you are wanting, and then turn the air fryer on. Let it heat up for a few minutes. Air Fryers don't have to preheat, it all depends on the recipe in what it requires.
You can put foil in the air fryer, it just needs to be on the bottom of the air fryer. If you place it on the grate then make sure to poke holes so air can flow through it.
The air fryer is similar to an oven but the texture of the air fryer can provide a crispy texture like deep frying. The air fryer circulates hot air which is what cooks your food.
I cooked my fried pickles for 7 minutes. But depending on the size of your pickles, the cook time will vary.
