    1. Hi Jean,
      Getting sweet potato fries crispy is a bit of a challenge because of the moisture content in sweet potatoes. The key is to cut them into relatively thin sticks, spritz with oil at the beginning and part way through cooking and cook in small batches so that the fries are not sitting on top of one another. It’s a little more challenging than with regular potato fries, but it can be done.

  1. Hi meredith, I would like to say thank you for all the formation you share here and your cook books I would be lost with them. The one thing would like to pass on that I have learned the hard way is when cooking food in the air fryer that has far in it like hamburger or bacon is a good idea to add some little water too the pan, if not you will smoke up the kitchen real guick! I also learned to watch while cooking for any hint of smoke, is time for more water. I really in joy your web site and cook books. Thank you for all you do meredith. Ron

  2. I love your site Meredith. I have the 5 .3 Air Fryer and two of your cook books. I use Air Fryer three or more times a week. Your recipes are so easy and 😋. Miss you on tv. I know you will do well here on blue Jean chef. I will follow you. Thank you 🙏

    1. Hi Fran. I’ve tried popcorn in the air fryer and it does work IF YOU HAVE A MESH BELOW THE AIR FRYER ELEMENT. That is important. If you don’t have a mesh below the air fryer element, the popcorn can pop right up into the element and catch on fire. I have to admit that I prefer popcorn made on the stovetop or in a popcorn maker to the air fryer, however.

  3. I bought a pressure cooker and still don’t know how to use it. I would like to cook baby back ribs in itDiann

    1. Hi Donna. I’m not 100% familiar with the Greville Toaster Oven/Air Fryer, but I’m sure it uses the same convection technology that other air fryers use, so I will venture to say yes – the chart should work with any air fryer that hold the temperature.
