Where do you put the oil in an air fryer?

The beauty of an air fryer is that you don’t use oil in the air fryer.

You’ll simply sprinkle some olive oil on your ingredients and place them in your air fryer.

The air fryer allows you to enjoy a healthier option to deep-fried foods since you won’t be dipping your foods into the hot oil.

Hot air will move around your buffalo cauliflower bites to air fry them to the perfect temperature and texture.

Follow my instructions below to use an air fryer properly with this recipe.

Some have opted to serve their air fryer buffalo cauliflower with a side of bleu cheese and celery or dip it into more buffalo sauce for an added kick!
