  • Air fryer


  • 3-4 ears sweet corn on the cob Fresh or frozen


  • Remove the husk and silk from the ears of corn. Rinse the corn under cool water to remove any dirt.
  • Additionally, you can cut the ends off if the stalk remains attached. If you wish to cut your corn in half, you can do so now.
  • Place the ears of corn into the air fryer basket. Turn the air fryer on to 380°F/190°C and cook for 8-10 minutes.  At the four minute mark, remove basket, shake and return to cooking.
  • When air fryer stops, remove corn carefully from basket (it will be HOT!)  Slather with salt and pepper and butter if you wish!



  • There is no need to preheat the air fryer when making corn on the cobb. 
  • If making frozen corn on the cobb, allow it to thaw for 30 minutes at room temperature first. Air fry as directed in the recipe, adding 2-4 extra minutes of cooking time. 
  • It is not necessary for you to use oil. You can give it a spray of olive oil or avocado oil to help it crisp up, but it is not needed.
  • Pro Tip: This recipe can be made in the air fryer unit with a basket or the air fryer oven. If you are using the air fryer oven, use the middle rack and select the "Air Fry" function.
  • Pro Tip: Check your food as it cooks. Each air fryer runs a bit differently. Sometimes air frying is a trial and error process. Check your food as it cooks to learn your air fryer better! When cooking a new recipe or food items be sure to check your food often to help avoid over/under cooking.
