Air fryers are known for their ability to create a crispy texture, and bacon is no exception. The circulating hot air in the air fryer helps to evenly crisp up the bacon, giving it a satisfying crunch.

Air Fryer Bacon

Air fryer bacon

The air fryer has truly been a game changer in my kitchen. I love cooking chicken wings and french fries in it. But today, I’m excited to introduce a revolutionary recipe: air fryer bacon.

The leaner nature of air fryer bacon, with excess fat dripped away during air frying, creates a satisfying crunch. The savory and smoky notes characteristic of bacon are intensified. I must say air fryer bacon is the most perfect, most delicious bacon I have ever had.

Moreover, the reduced greasiness of air fryer bacon compared to traditional frying methods allows the true flavors of the bacon to shine through without being overwhelmed by excessive oiliness.

Compared to traditional frying methods, air fryer bacon is faster. Air fryer bacon offers a hassle-free and less messy cooking experience compared to traditional methods like stovetop frying, microwave, or oven baking. It is well-suited for family use.

How Long to Cook Bacon in Air Fryer

The cooking time for bacon in an air fryer can vary depending on factors such as the thickness of the bacon slices, desired crispiness, and the specific model of the air fryer.

The recommended bacon air fryer time is 8 to 12 minutes at 400°F (200°C). You can check the bacon around the 8-minute mark to assess the level of crispiness and adjust the cooking time accordingly.

If you prefer extra crispy bacon, you can continue cooking for an additional 1 to 2 minutes, but keep a close eye on it to avoid burning.

Which Air Fryer is Best?

While air fryers generally follow the same cooking principles, different models may vary in performance, temperature accuracy, and cooking times. It’s important to become familiar with your specific air fryer and make adjustments as necessary to achieve the best results.

Choosing the best air fryer depends on your specific needs, preferences, and budget. Two popular options are the basket-style air fryer and the toaster oven-style air fryer.

Basket-style air fryer: We have the Typhur Dome Air Fryer which is big enough to feed the whole family. And it features a unique, self-cleaning mode for easy cleaning. It supports work with the Typhur App to keep an eye on the progress of your meal.

Toaster oven-style air fryer: it takes up a little more space compared to basket-style air fryers. A toaster oven-style air fryer’s larger cooking capacity and additional functionalities result in a slightly larger overall size.
