For (reasons), I have an extra inner basket for this model of air fryer. I have completely removed the handle assembly; what I'm left with is a single piece of non-stick coated metal. I've been grilling a lot recently and experimenting with ways to cook different types of veggies on the grill I came across the concept of a 'grill basket'. I was wondering if I could use this air fryer basket on the grill. I use a Weber kettle charcoal grill and I'd have the basket on top of the grate, not directly in the coals.
The air fryer itself maxes out at 400 degrees Fahrenheit, but I couldn't find any information about the temperature rating of the actual basket or even specifics on the coating used.
- I couldn't find any good information about this online except for fairly common assertions that 'one shouldn't use non stick cookware at very high heats' without much in the way of specifics.
- Looking through this stack I found Why would a portable barbecue warn against using pots on the grill? which actually didn't include any info on my topic and also Cooking temperatures with non-stick cookwear which (surprisingly) didn't either.
- What potentially deleterious effects might result from using this air fryer basket with a non stick coating on a charcoal grill?
- Specifically what might be the possible negative outcomes from simply throwing some veg in there and trying it at least once?
