The cooking time depends on multiple factors, from the type and quantity of food to the cooking temperature. Luckily, the air fryer comes with a pause button, which you can use to check for doneness and to flip the food.
🧅 Why It Works
Almost any recipe that calls for an oven can be adapted to the air fryer. The air fryer circulates hot air, which cooks food faster compared to a conventional oven.
Even better, the air fryer is excellent at achieving the finger-licking crispiness we’re all craving with just a small amount of oil. It’s definitely a healthier way to enjoy crispy food!
🥩 How It Works
The basic formula for converting a recipe from oven to air fryer is to reduce the cooking temperature by 25°F and the cooking time by 20%.
I recommend you check for doneness half way and adjust the cooking time if needed.
Our printable oven to air fryer conversion sheet offers the temperatures and cooking times for various popular foods so you can skip the math and start prepping your meal.

One of the best ways to enjoy chicken meat that’s crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside is cooking it in the air fryer.
When possible, you should definitely brine your chicken, regardless if you’re using a dry rub or a liquid marinade.

All of them will turn out great if you stick to the recommended cooking temperatures and times.

All the different cuts of beef have their own appeal and the air fryer is an easy way to cook them perfectly.
Perhaps the most important thing about beef is to not overcook it as it can end up being too dry.

These are for medium well to well done. Cut down the time if you want it cooked less.

❗ Expert Tips
Using an air fryer may not be rocket science, but you still need to pay attention to a few things.
Preheating the air fryer is definitely one of them. Some air fryers advertise no preheating is required. That can work for recipes with longer cooking times, but anything under 10 minutes will come out better if you preheat your air fryer.
It takes about 3 minutes to preheat it. I would say it’s totally worth the effort.
The air fryer will crisp up food way better if you add a little bit of oil. Spraying or brushing it is the best way to ensure an even coating while keeping the oil amount to a minimum.
One thing that can have a big impact on the total cooking time is how much food you put in the air fryer basket. The hot air needs space to circulate, so don’t overcrowd it. When air frying, it’s better to cook food in batches.
Otherwise you will need to check for doneness often and/or flip the food at least once to ensure it cooks evenly.
