  • 12 oz Bacon or, as much as you want


  • Place a single layer of bacon in the air fryer basket.
  • Set the air fryer to 350 and cook for 10 minutes.
  • Check for crispness and cook 1-2 more minutes if needed.
  • Drain bacon grease between batches.



  • Readers have shared that if you place a little water in the bottom of the air fryer (where the grease catches) it will reduce any smoking you might experience. LOVE this tip!
  • The more bacon you use in a batch the longer you may have to cook it. The same is true if you cook less than a full batch-- it will take less time.
  • Air fryers may cook differently. Always first test in your unit attended.
