Air Fryer Roasted Corn is a great way to use your air fryer when it isn’t making crispy french fries. Take those ears of corn frozen or fresh on the cob and turn them into masterpieces!
I have been an owner of an Air Fryer for quite awhile. Maybe like you, I know my air fryer does a great job on things like frozen French fries, Tator Tots, Air Fryer Hot Dogs, and fish sticks. Many people have been using their air fryers for so much more than heating up frozen food.
I love roasted corn, living in Texas means roasted corn is sold at fairs, at sports events, and even outside some grocery stores. Roasted sweet corn is divine. I found that I can’t quite get it just right in the oven, or even on my grill. I found that roasted corn inside of an air fryer is simply perfect.
There are many different models of air fryers.
I personally have the BLACK+DECKER HF110SBD 2-Liter Oil Free Air Fryer, Black / Stainless Steel, I think it is a great well-priced model to see if you would like to try out one of the larger ones. The Philips Digital Airfryer, The Original Airfryer, Fry Healthy with 75% Less Fat, Black HD9230/26 has a much larger capacity, and would be great if you have a larger family.
How does an air fryer work?
You may wonder how do they work, an air fryer works well because it circulates very hot hair around your food with a minimal amount of oil. Having an air fryer, means you have a mini convection oven on your countertop. Foods don’t taste deep-fried, but they do taste really good. You get most of the crunch that you would with foods being deep-fried. The hot air circulating works like a convection oven, on steroids, and it is through this that I could roast corn on the cob so effectively.
I can’t tell you if an air fryer is a great investment for you personally, but I can tell you I have made jalapeno poppers and hamburgers in there and they have been quite good. You may want to check out these other air fryer recipes.
