Where exactly can I use this air fryer?
This air fryer is intended for household use only. Please refrain from using this appliance in staff kitchens, hotels, and other non-residential environments.

2. Wipe the outside of your Air Fryer with a damp cloth. Never use an abrasive cleaner or harsh pad.
3. Clean the pan and basket using hot water, mild soap, and a non-abrasive sponge (the pan and basket are also dishwasher-safe). If necessary, use a degreasing liquid to remove any remaining dirt.
NOTE: If dirt is stuck to the basket or the bottom of the pan, fill the pan with hot water and a mild liquid soap. Put the basket in the pan and soak for about 10 minutes.
