If cleaning your Philips Air Fryer XXL basket every time you use it feels like a pain, Korean brand Balsang’s silicone pot is a great solution. It sits on top of the basket, collecting the oil from air frying instead of letting it drain to the bottom of the pan. There are grooves in the tray to keep your food slightly raised, allowing the oil to pool in the center as well.
- 22 cm x 22 cm x 6.5 cm
- Medical grade silicone
- Temperatures up to 220 degrees Celsius
Made of medical grade silicone, the Balsang Air Fryer Square Silicone Pot fits in the largest of air fryers. I managed to get it to fit into my Philips Air Fryer XL — the basket size is about the same size as the 22cm by 22cm square pot. It’s a tight fit though, but it does work, as you can see from the pictures below. You can also use it in the microwave and oven as it can withstand temperatures of up to 220 degrees Celsius.
The Balsang pot is perfect for those who want to stop using paper liners or aluminum foil to heat up their food. It’s also dishwasher safe, and can be cleaned easily with just soap, water and a bit of vinegar.
The Balsang Air Fryer Square Silicone Pot to be a great buy, making cooking with the air fryer cleaner. You don’t need to clean the bottom basket after. My only issue, of course, is the fit, as the seller doesn’t offer refunds. My recommendation is to buy a size smaller (especially if you’re buying the round versions).
You can get the Balsang Air Fryer Square Silicone Pot and its round versions online pretty easily and for a pretty good price too.
