How To Clean Sur La Table Air Fryer Door?

The Sur La Table air fryer has several components. One of them is the door or the drawer, and is the most active function of this appliance. Depending on the air fryer model, the door can be a pull-out, swing-open, or drop-down. The pull-out is the basket-type, while the drop-down is common in oven air fryers. If you have the swing-open door, it opens sideways to the right or left. 

The air fryer door is susceptible to dirt due to touch while closing and opening. It can, thus, breed germs and spread diseases, so cleaning is essential after every cooking session. Here is the step-by-step process for cleaning the Sur La Table air fryer door.

You will need several items:

  • Warm water
  • Dishwashing soap
  • Toothpick
  • sponge/tablecloth


  • Detach your air fryer from the power source.
  • Remove any food from the cooking chamber.
  • If it is the oven type, remove the rotisserie, rack, and other accessories and keep them aside. You can soak the items in warm, soapy water to wash later or clean them in the dishwasher. Do the same for the basket type.
  • Open the oven door and rub it with a wet sponge/tablecloth dipped in warm soapy water. Clean both sides until there are no food residues. 
  • Use a toothpick to remove the sticky residue on the hinges.
  • Rinse the door with a clean cloth dipped in clean water and rung. 

Is The Sur La Table Air Fryer Dishwasher Safe?

Sur La Table air fryer accessories are dish washable, but the machine is not. The reason is simple: all electronic gadgets are not water-friendly as moisture damages their controls. When cleaning the air fryer, you must be keen not to let water into the controls.

  • Crisper basket
  • Rack
  • Grill tray
  • Pan
  • Skewers
  • Rotisserie spits
  • Forks
  • Kebab Set
  • Drip tray
