    Set to 375°F; cook 10 to 12 minutes or until crispy. Remove from basket; cool basket and base slightly. Carefully wipe out basket and base with paper towels to remove all grease. Repeat with remaining 4 bacon slices.

Expert Tips

  • Air fryer temperature control settings vary according to brand and model. If your air fryer does not have the exact temperature setting called for in the recipe, consult your manual for suggested temperature settings.
  • Our recipes do not call for preheating your air fryer. Just set the temperature, and start.
  • Be sure to wipe down the air fryer basket and base with paper towels between batches to remove grease. If grease accumulates in the base, it can create large amounts of smoke.
  • We used regular bacon in this recipe. For thick-cut bacon, add 1 to 2 minutes to cook time.
