  • 6 pieces bacon


  • Place the bacon in the air fryer basket. Some folding is okay, but try not to overlap too much.
  • Cook at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.
  • Check for desired doneness. I like mine extra crispy, so I usually cook it for 1-2 minutes more.
  • Transfer to a wire rack with paper towel to cool/ drain excess grease.


If you are doing more than one batch, be sure and empty the grease from the lower basket before cooking the second batch.
I like thicker bacon.  If you are using thinner cuts, watch closely because you may need less time.
