Well when I first started creating Ninja Foodi recipes I was kinda’ starting from scratch since it was such a new machine.

I wondered a lot how long should I air fry? certain foods that it was easier to write them all down. 

  • After I collected a lot of air fryer times that worked well for me I decided to create a list to keep on my fridge.
  • Since I am all about sharing I thought I’d share with all of you too because I couldn’t be alone in this journey.
How long does an air fryer take to cook?

Well that depends on what you’re making. I will say that everything I have cooked has taken a lot less time than in the oven. It takes 5 minutes to preheat, so add that to your total cook time.cosori air fryer

Can you put battered food in an air fryer?

Yes, in a way. You cannot use a wet coating like tempura batter, but rather a nice egg and breadcrumb coating works well like with our air fryer zucchini.

What temperature do you air fry?

Again, that depends on what you’re making. If you want air fryer tilapia it would be set lower than air fryer baked potatoes for example.  Typically though the temp. will be between 325 and 400 degrees F. Higher will create a crispier exterior but you want enough time for the insides to become tender.

How do you convert baking time to air fryer?

It is hard to say exactly but typically you are looking at half as long. I usually will use the same temperature suggested for baking in the oven. It is just a smaller area therefore it heats contents quicker.

You can grab a copy of our printable when clicking on the link at the very bottom of this post. Here are a few air fryer recipes you should try out once you have the timing sheet:

It’s been invaluable to know how to cook my air fryer cauliflower so it was the right texture, and ensure my air fryer zucchini chips came out perfectly.

Do you preheat an air fryer?

I almost always do at the temp. you need for 5 minutes before adding any food inside the basket.

  • If you do not preheat your dish may take a bit longer to cook.
  • Preheating takes about 3 minutes and I would recommend it if you remember, but if not don’t fret.

My Cosori has a preheat button which I love which makes things easier.

Thanks Mom for all you recipes! I have a Ninja Foodi Flexdrawer. It has the following settings for cooking: Max Crisp, Air Fry, Roast and Bake. Should all of your recipes be cooked using the 'Air Fry' function? Many thanks, Sarah (air fryer newbie)
