Some things that you might want to consider if you are not getting the perfect burger;
How long to cook frozen hamburger patty in air fryer
Depending on the size of the burger, you need to cook them for 6 – 8 minutes on each side. However, make sure that side is cooked before you flip them. Extend the time if you think it needs more.
What to do if your frozen burger patty is soggy
It may well be that you have not cooked them long enough. Simply put them back in the air fryer and start it up again. You also need to flip them over at the halfway point to ensure it is evenly cooked. Not doing so will mean one side is more cooked than the other. You need to let the air circulate freely, so don’t put place them on top of each other. If you follow this advice, you should have few issues.
Should I preheat my air fryer before I cook frozen burger patty in my air fryer?
Preheating your air fryer always results in better results. Think of it as if it was a conventional oven…you don’t oven cook from a cold oven. Some air fryers have the preheating function built in to them, but it is just as simple to do it manually. Your burger patty will cook much better and the end result will be better.
Do all air fryers cook burger patties the same and take the same time?
Different brands will cook things slightly differently. This is nothing to worry about but it does mean that you might have to adjust the cooking time and temperature. Therefore, get to know your air fryer. You’ll soon be able to judge what works best. Read more here if you want to learn about using your air fryer to make fries.
