Recipe Tips

  • You may need to adjust the cooking time. If you prefer super crispy bacon, then I recommend cooking for longer. If you prefer it soft, then reduce the cooking time.
  • I recommend cutting super long slices of bacon in half.
  • Better quality bacon will always produce better results.
  • Add water to the bottom of the air fryer if it starts to smoke, or you can add it before you start cooking. A slice of bread is another option if you do not want to use water.
  • Empty the grease from the bottom of the air fryer after each batch of bacon to avoid having the bacon swimming in grease.
