But how does the air fryer fare with foods that don't require oil to cook due to their high-fat content, like say, bacon ? Don't get me wrong, I love the air fryer as much as the next person, but here I'll argue that there are simply better methods for cooking bacon.
Instead, they work by circulating hot air around food, much like a convection oven. Food is gloriously crisped on the outside and cooked through on the inside without the added oil.
But what's more problematic about cooking bacon in the air fryer is the fact that it's highly likely you'll end up with a burnt, smoky mess. Here's why: Bacon doesn't require any excess oil or butter to cook because it's so full of fat.
Some folks suggest adding water to the air fryer drawer to help reduce any smoking, but adding water to hot oil is a safety hazard, as it can expand and cause hot oil to spray in all directions. All this being said, I understand the appeal of cooking bacon in an air fryer, since you would expect to have far less of a mess than you would with the traditional stove top method.
But if you're looking to avoid a greasy mess, I'd suggest going with the oven method, especially for large batches. Open the air fryer basket and check for any burning oil that may need to be dumped.
Transfer cooked bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to soak up the excess grease. The bacon crisped up perfectly, and I think the best part was realizing that you didn’t have to worry about splatting as you do when cooking bacon in a pan.
I cut mine in half for these photos, but probably could have left them in long strips, since once they started cooking and shrinking they would have been just fine. The air fryer is pretty forgiving in terms of opening it to test for oneness, and then closing it and turning it back on, since it requires no preheating, and no changes in pressure.
Some air fryers allow you to see inside while the machine is running, but most don’t so you’ll have to open it up and see. And not only is cooking bacon (and everything else) in the air fryer generally much faster than in a conventional oven, you also save the reheating time, which is about 15 minutes shaved off the preparation.
To reduce the smoke, you can place a piece of bread under the basket or insert to soak up some grease as it drips down. Remember that the bacon will shrink as it cooks, so that a bit of overlap is fine.
Set your air fryer to dual heat for 7 minutes. After the 7 minutes is up, check, and if it is done, remove it to a paper towel lined plate.

The Farberwareairfryer is a versatile, multi-functional kitchen gadget whose rapid air circulation system allows me to bake, roast, fry and grill with little to no addition of oil. Today, I’m going to cover a couple of Farberwareairfryer recipes that I personally have tried and tested.

I start this recipe by cutting the block of cheddar cheese into 6 portions of equal sizes. To ascertain that the cheddar bacon bites are firm enough, I place them in the freezer for 5 minutes.
Combine the breadcrumbs with oil and whisk until the mixture is loose and crumbly. Coat each block of cheddar with the flour, followed by the eggs, and finally the breadcrumbs.
The crispy potato skin wedges recipe has been one of my favorites since I bought the Farberwarecooking appliance. To prepare this recipe, first scrub the potatoes under running water to clean.
After the 40-minute timer lapses, remove the potatoes and cool them in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Slice cooled potatoes into quarters and lightly toss in the spices and oil mixture.
In a large-size mixing bowl, toss carrot and cabbage together to blend. Add the dressing to the cabbage mixture and flip up to mix well.
Preheat the Farberwareairfryer to 360 °F (equivalent to 182 °C) and put a wire rack over the baking sheet. To prepare the conceits, place sesame, flour, pinko and eggs in separate shallow bowls.
Put the lid back, and adjust the temperature to 400 °F, equivalent to 200 °C. Once the cutlets are cooked, transfer them onto the wire rack on the baking sheet, and warm them over the oven.
As the second half of cutlets continue to cook, drain the coleslaw to discard the liquid. 01/16/2019 This has potential but as written you will end up with very burnt bacon.
I went ahead and experimented with the entire pound package. The basket only holds a few pieces at a time so this was quite a lengthy test.
Another helpful hint is to cut your bacon pieces in half prior to putting them in the basket. 07/14/2019 this recipe makes Almost Burnt Bacon.
350 cook 6 flip then 4 more I feel is perfect. Not gummy at all crispy without the meat overcooking and becoming tough.
Add water to the bottom to prevent the smoke detector from telling your neighbors it's bacon time. After several tests, I settled on 3 minutes on each side at 390 degrees.
I'm sure time cooked varies based on different air frying ovens. Still, quicker easier and less mess than conventional pan frying.
08/22/2020 This was demolish and the perfect method for the air fryer ! The only thing I switched up was that I sprinkled some brown sugar on top of the bacon about halfway through.
I also recommend cutting package in half and placing the 1/2 strips around the basket with minimal overlap. Check with 2-3 min remaining and turn, toss, or shake up as needed for most even cooking.
Making Crispy Air Fried Bacon in the air fryer is a game changer for so many reasons. Don’t crowd the basket with bacon or you will have excess oil burning.
There're several schools of thought for cooking bacon and every air fryer guide or manufacturer has their own recommended temperature. We have some quick and easy temperature guidelines to follow for general results for bacon crispness.

My only recommendation is to watch the time and check on it occasionally to be sure it’s not overcooking. But, you can play with seasonings, herbs, spices, rubs and marinades, making your bacon flavor choices, endless.

An air fryer is so versatile and will cook nearly anything that can be fried the traditional way, without the mess. I have heard for best results, don't let the bacon touch, but that was NOT my experience at all.
At about the halfway mark, I opened the basket to be sure everything looked stellar. If bacon has moved or adjusted from the air, use tongs and readjust.
