Can we use tinfoil in air fryer?

The answer is definitely YES. And it’s a good method to use tinfoil in air fryer when there isn’t an additional container. Wrap up the whole tray in it with tinfoil. It will prevent food to be burned in roasting, and reduce the greasy burst on the inner wall of air fryers, which can save your time to clean it. It’s very useful when you roast chicken wings or steaks.
