Yes you can. I love to cook roast beef roasting joints in my air fryer and they come out perfect every time. I have cooked rump roasts, topside and silverside in the air fryer.
Just so, can Aluminium foil be used in air fryer?
Yes, you can use aluminum foil in an air fryer, as long as you use it safely, and avoid covering critical components of your machine that could cause uneven cooking and even damage. Be sure to use a small amount to cover the bottom of your basket, or wrap your food with it.
Likewise, people ask, can you put a roast in an air fryer?
Yes you can, but don’t expect it to be like a slow cooker pot roast or an instant pot pot roast. You see the air fryer is not meant for tenderising meat like a slow cooker does, instead it roasts your food. I have found the best way to achieve a tender air fryer pot roast is to use a top round roast in air fryer.
Can you put liquid in an air fryer?
Yes, you can add a few drops of water at the bottom of your air fryer below the basket. But remember that Air Fryer is not meant for steaming the food, so only add a few drops of water (not more than that).
Yes. An air fryer and a slow cooker are vastly different. But, simply adjusting the cooking features can allow you to slow cook in an air fryer. Newer models, such as the Hamilton Beach 2-in-one air fryer, double as slow cookers.
The amount of electricity that an air fryer consumes is relatively low. This is in comparison to the traditional oven, deep fryer, and microwave. Most air fryers that are currently available in the market (Philips, Nuwave, GoWise) use energy in the average measure of 1500 watts.
How to PreHeat an Air Fryer?
- Set the temperature at which you are cooking the food. Or at the temperature that the recipe states.
- Click “on” and let the air fryer heat for 3-5 minutes. We suggest 2 minutes for small air fryers less than 3 qts. And for larger air fryers, we suggest about 5 minutes.

With your beef all seasoned and your air fryer preheated, you can go ahead and place the roast right into the air fryer basket. Allow the beef to cook for 30 minutes total, but be sure to flip it halfway through. Keep in mind that cooking the beef at 360 F for 30 minutes will give you a well done result.
Preheat air fryer to 320 degrees F for 5 minutes. Dab roast with paper towels to remove moisture from outside of the meat. Rub seasonings of choice all over the meat. Set protein inside preheated air fryer basket and cook at 320 degrees for 30-40 minutes cooking time, flipping halfway through the total time.

The Difference Between Roasting and Broiling
When roasting, your air fryer will default to a higher temperature and cook for a shorter amount of time than air frying, which makes it suitable for cooking beef or poultry (hello, chicken wings!) like you would in a traditional oven.

The hindquarters and shoulder area are both well-used parts of the cow, so these two cuts of meat are naturally pretty tough. Most people agree that roasted rump is the more tender of the two.
