How Long To Air Fry Corn
Corn on the cob takes a while to cook – and cooks best when not directly over the heat to prevent burning.
This is solved well by air frying to get a bit of crispy charred crunch, without overcooking the corn.
Aim for 10-18 minutes in the air fryer, checking occasionally, for doneness.
Flip corn when in air fryer to make sure corn is cooked on all sides.
How To Tell When Corn Is Done
Grilled corn is done when the kernels look slightly wrinkly, are soft to the touch, and have a lovely golden char to each side (be sure to flip your corn and rotate it often so it’s evenly charred on all sides.)
