WHAT ARE PERFORATED PARCHMENT SHEETS OR LINERS?
They’re pre-cut parchment paper that have holes (perforated). The holes allow air to circulate through the paper and helps food crisp better or steam without sticking to the air fryer basket or steamer basket. These parchment sheets are great for what ever cooking surface you have for your air fryer or bamboo steamer (especially if you have a wire basket or tray – we find they tend to stick the most). The perforated parchment sheets come in different sizes, shapes and styles. Some are white, while other brown ones are unbleached. In the case of air frying, the holes in the parchment sheets allows food to circulate under the food, which helps food cook more evenly throughout the whole cavity of the air fryer.
AIR FRYER PARCHMENT SHEET HELPS FOOD FROM STICKING AND MORE
These parchment sheets are a game changer for your air fryer! If you have a wire air fryer basket or wire air fryer oven racks, you probably have had sticking issues. No matter how much you spray with oil, some foods will still stick to wire surfaces. But if you use these papers under your food, you’ll have much less food sticking and tearing. Even if you have a non-stick or ceramic base, delicate foods like fish can often tear. It’s always good to have a batch of these air fryer sheets in your kitchen. They come in handy for easy cleaning too!
BENEFITS OF USING THESE AIR FRYER PERFORATED PARCHMENT PAPER

Safe up to 400°F-450°F (205°C-230°C). These liners can cook up to pretty high heat which allows the food to get extra crisp. But still be cautious especially if your air fryer heating element is too close to the food. This can cause the parchment to burn! Yes, it has happened so keep checking the food to make sure the parchment doesn’t burn when you’re cooking. Don’t put the parchment in your air fryer when preheating. It will just blow around and often blow up against the heating element and start to burn.
Affordable. These liners are pretty affordable and worth the cost for all the benefits.
