    1. This recipe is meant for the air fryer lid, or you can bake it in the oven at 375 (it will take a bit longer to cook through).

  1. Hi, I'm new to this. You just add the dish right into the pot, with no surrounding water? It doesnt hurt the machine or explode the dish? Should you only use a pyrex dish?
