How to cook frozen onion rings in a hot air fryer

The most frequently asked question about cooking frozen onion rings in a hot air fryer is how long to cook your onion rings. The short answer is that it depends on a number of things. A) Your air fryer model and B) how crispy you like your onion rings to be.

Generally, it takes about 8-10 minutes to cook frozen onion rings in the air fryer. To get the best crunch from your onion rings, you need to leave your distance. This allows the air to circulate the best, allowing the onion rings to cook faster and more evenly.

To begin, depending on the model or type of air fryer, start the preheat cycle or set the temperature to 400ºF (205ºC). Let your air fryer preheat while you prepare the onion rings.

Cook The Onion Rings At 400oF (205 oC)

  1. Cover your hot air fryer basket or tubs with non-stick cooking spray or your favorite spray oil (olive oil, avocado oil, etc.).
  2. Divide the onion rings with spacing and try to keep them in a single layer as much as possible.
  3. Transfer the onion rings to your hot air fryer and start the cooking cycle for 8 minutes.
  4. After 4 minutes or after your air fryer indicates ‘TURN FOOD’, flip onion rings. If you are using a hot air fryer, rotate the shelves from top to bottom and vice versa. Return to your air fryer and continue the cooking cycle.
  5. Check the onion rings after 8 minutes of cooking time and serve immediately. Or continue cooking for another 2 minutes or more depending on the desired crispness.

  4. For crispy onion rings, increase the hot air roasting time by 1-2 minutes per side.
