Yes, you can put air fryer in dishwasher as recommended by most manufacturers. However, if you want to protect the non-stick coatings on your air fryer, we recommend handwashing the basket.
Can you put air fryer in dishwasher?
It is a question that we get asked quite a lot, a result of some conflicting information found online.
Where does this confusion come from? It is a result of claims made by manufacturers against the views of real world users. The manufacturers obviously want to emphasize how convenient air fryers are…simply use them and put the parts into the dishwasher…sounds so simple right!
This conflicts with the ‘real world’ advice of real users of air fryers. Users want the convenience that air fryers offer…but they also want to prolong the life of them.
The general consensus is that you should not put any parts that have a non-stick coating into the dishwasher. We absolutely agree with this and this is the advice that we give our readers.
Is the air fryer basket dishwasher safe?
Although you should always refer to your manufacturers guidelines, in principle, most manufacturers state that you can put your air fryer basket into a dishwasher.
As we stated above, it is not necessarily a good idea to do so. The abrasive nature of dishwashers, the high temperatures and the cleaning agents make them a ‘perfect storm’ towards damaging the non-stick coating on your air fryer basket.
What is the best way to clean an air fryer?
It may take a little longer to do, but if you want your air fryer to last longer, we recommend that you soak and clean your air fryer by hand. By this, we are obviously referring to the basket and tray.

Yes, you can put your air fryer basket into a dishwasher…but, just because you can doesn’t mean that you should. Hot water in air fryer and abrasive cleaning can really damage non-stick surfaces.
So, in light of that, get your dishwashing gloves out and hand clean them!
