Content creator glowwithella has garnered attention for her cleaver Air Fryer cooking hack, with more than 600,000 views - and growing - on her TikTok video.

"If you use an air fryer for cooking, or even if you don't use an air fryer for cooking, this is a really important rule of thumb you should know," she begins.

"I learned this from everyday family cooking... if you have a recipe that calls for something to be baked... to transfer it from oven to the air fryer, you should reduce the cooking time by 20% and reduce the temperature by 25% Fahrenheit."

Her temperature conversion tip went viral across TikTok, with 263 commenters sharing their scepticism, advice and criticism.

"Listen. Everything goes in the air fryer at 400 for 10-15 minutes and 5 more minutes until it’s done enough. I don’t make the rules," one fan posted.

"But increasing by 20% doesn’t give the same result as decreasing by 20%. 100 minutes would be down to 80, but 80 would only be up to 96," another added.

More scepticism continued, with another pointing out this cooking hack is for the side of the world that operates in Fahrenheit.

With a commenter pointing out, "What about in Celsius? Like the rest of the world," another commenter replied,

"Convert into Fahrenheit, do the calculations, then convert back to Celsius," they said.

Another commenter wrote, "Everything at 400 lol," they joked, with glowwithella replying:

"Wait, I lowkey do that for a lot of things too," she said.
