½poundthin-cut/regular baconsee notes for thick-cut bacon
Pre-heat air fryer on hottest setting for 5 minutes.
Carefully place a single layer of bacon in hot air fryer basket (my 5.5 quart basket holds 6-8 slices, depending on their size).
Air fry bacon at 350°F for 5 minutes. Flip, then cook at 350°F for another 2-4 minutes, until desired crispness is reached (check regularly during second cooking interval and remove bacon as soon as it is done to your liking).
If cooking several batches, drain grease from air fryer drip tray and thoroughly wipe off all grease from basket and tray between batches; in order to keep your air fryer from developing smoke.
Make sure to stick to a single layer of bacon. I have a 5.5 quart Corsori air fryer, and I can fit about 6-8 slices of bacon in the basket.
Thick-cut bacon needs about 10-12 minutes of total cooking time.
Check on your bacon regularly towards the end of the cooking time, and remove it as soon as it is well-browned and fully crispy. Depending on the exact thickness of your slices, the air frying time may vary a little.
If you are cooking several batches, make sure to de-grease your air fryer between each batch: Drain the grease, wipe the basket and grease tray with paper towels. If you experience smoking, check your air fryer’s user manual for cleaning the inside of your air fryer – grease left on the heating element may cause smoking.
