Here’s Your Air Fryer Cooking Time Cheat Sheet

No more second-guessing the cooking time!

Air fryer owners know that cooking in this appliance is fast and easy. It’s meant to be since hot air can be as effective in cooking your favorite food as cooking it in an oven or even on the stove in hot oil. You just need to know the air frying cooking tips and tricks to prepare your food properly to use in it.

Cooking food will always be dependent on what you’re using to cook so if you’re using an air fryer to cook food on a regular basis, you need to know how long to cook anything. Whether it’s French fries from a bag for merienda or a half chicken for lunch, it can be tricky figuring out how long each would take and at what temperature. 

If you are always wondering how long to cook the food you just placed in your air fryer, here is the cooking cheat sheet you need so you don’t have to second guess yourself every time:

If you need to reheat food, set the temperature to 150 degrees C or 300 degrees F and the timer to about 3 to 5 minutes depending on how big the piece of food you’re cooking.  


If you’re worried about heating food at high temperatures, you can still use your air fryer to cook food at 120 degrees C or 250 degrees F. However, note that it will take longer to cook the food than if it were cooked at a higher, hotter temperature.
