Air Fryer Capacity – What Does It Really Mean?

When shopping for an Air Fryer, you’d probably seen the capacity of the machine as either in liters or quarts. Some have pounds as their stated capacity but what does this really mean?

When you cook food you’re dealing with solid objects as ingredients while the capacities listed are units for liquids.

In simple terms, what the manufacturers is describing is the volume of liquid the cooking or frying basket will hold.

When they say 2 liters that means the basket will hold 2 liters of water (imagine that the basket has no holes in it). Same goes when they say quarts.

To find out how much approximately the basket will hold you need to some calculations.

Instead of giving you an equation, here is an online conversion tool you can use.

One thing to remember that you will not be able to maximize the use of the whole basket.

A good thing to keep in mind that since an air fryer cooks by circulating hot air around the food, there needs be spaces between the ingredients for the air to flow properly. You may even flip the food half way through to make sure even cooking.
