How Does Dash Air Fryer Works:

The Dash air fryer takes air from its backside and utilises a heating element and a powerful fan to circulate hot air throughout the food in its basket. This unique circulation method enables you to achieve crispy results with minimal oil, which is far better than traditional oven cooking. Additionally, the air fryer’s browning effect enhances the flavour of the food, especially on the caramelised edges.

Let’s start with the basics! The Dash Air Fryer offers some easy-to-use features that make cooking very easy. To adjust the temperature, simply click on the left side upper arrow or down arrow sign to increase or decrease it. Once you’ve set the desired temperature, it’s time to set the timer. Just tap on the Time button and adjust the time using the right upper and down arrow. Once you’re all set, hit the start button and you’re good to go! It’s that simple and easy.

But sometimes there will be some common foods that you always try at your home. In that case DASH air fryer comes with its 3 Presets. You can save 3 different temperatures and time in each preset. Trust me it will make your life very easy.

How To use DASH air fryer’s 3 Presets:

Frequent preparation of the same dish in the air fryer can be made more efficient with the use of presets. These three presets serve as a time-saving tool by allowing you to save specific temperature and time settings for easy access.

To save a preset, simply adjust the temperature and time according to your desired settings. Once set, press the preset button to save these values. When you want to use the preset again in the future, simply select the corresponding preset button, and the air fryer will automatically apply the saved temperature and time.

For instance, if you often prepare french fries in your DASH air fryer at 400°F for 15 minutes, you can save this as a preset. This way, you won’t need to manually set the temperature and time every time. Just place the potatoes in the air fryer and choose the saved preset. The air fryer will automatically set the correct temperature and time, allowing you to relax and wait for 15 minutes before enjoying your perfectly cooked fries.

So I hope, now that you have a good understanding of the basics and presets, you’ll be able to make the most out of your Dash Air Fryer. 

Note: If you still have any confusion about the presets, please leave a comment below.
