Are Air Fryers Safe?

The first time someone asked me, are air fryers safe, I kind of assumed they were kidding.

Air fryers have always been safe, and I never realised anyone was doubting the capabilities of the air fryer.

But to set the record straight I wanted to talk to you today about:

  • Are air fryers bad for you?
  • Are air fryers dangerous?
  • Does air fryer cause cancer?
  • What is bad about air fryers?

Then you can decide if an air fryer is right for you.


Plus, as well as our free newsletter, we also have a free air fryer mini course. It is ideal for air fryer beginners or those that want to get more confident with their air fryer. The free course runs for 5 days with a new lesson delivered each day to your inbox.

Does Air Fryer Cause Cancer?

No, it doesn’t. I had ovarian cancer back in 2012, caused by a contraceptive pill that has since been banned. I had treatment and made a full recovery.

If I thought that the air fryer caused cancer, there would be no way I would have got one or that I would continue to use them when cooking for my family.

If you are worried that that the air fryer is toxic, please don’t.

Are Air Fryers Dangerous?

No, air fryers are good for you and air fryers are not dangerous. Of course, this depends on how you use your air fryer.

If you follow the instructions in our air fryer recipes and in your air fryer manual, then there is no reason for your air fryer to be dangerous.

Are Air Fryers Bad For You?

No, air fryers are not bad for you. In fact, there are no side effects to using the air fryer, and there are no safety concerns when it comes to the air fryer.

What the air fryer does have are disadvantages to the air fryer, which I recommend you read or listen to. None are about the safety of the air fryer and are more about things people don’t like about air fryer cooking.

One thing that the air fryer excels at is create your food with less oil and will tell you if you are cooking something that is too fatty in the way of smoking. This will just teach you to eat healthier with the air fryer and help you follow a healthier lifestyle.

My advice is to get an air fryer (we recommend this one) and then see what you think of it, and see how it can help you embrace a healthier lifestyle.
