Preheat your air fryer

  • First up, punch that preheat button and set your unit to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. You’ll also want to set the cooking time for 8 minutes.

  • When the unit is preheated, lay a single layer of onion rings in the bottom of the basket without overlapping. This will make sure the hot air can circulate and evenly cook those delicious rings.

Air fry them onion rings!

  • Let the machine start air frying away for the first 4 minutes, then open the fryer and flip the onion rings over.
  • Allow the machine to finish cooking. When done, the onion rings should be steaming hot and golden brown.


This recipe should work with any brand of onion rings. However, air fryer temperatures and times can vary slightly depending on the model. If this is your first time making air fryer onion rings, adhere to the temperatures and cook times listed in this recipe, but check your onion rings at 6 minutes and go from there. Alternatively, you can start with a lower temperature and check every 4 minutes to determine when they’ve reached perfect doneness.
