Air Fryer Frozen Onion Rings

Frozen Onion Rings in the Air Fryer are fantastic!! Frozen foods were created with the air fryer in mind. Cooking frozen items in the Air Fryer Has Transformed My Life! Easy and delicious are two of my favorite words.

Frozen onion rings were one of the first things I ever made. I was very disappointed the first time I cooked them. I put my air fryer away for a week and then returned to them, mainly because my youngest said, “Please mom, may I have some onion rings?” I obviously agreed, and the rest, as they say, is history. But, after all, who doesn’t enjoy a delicious Air Fryer Frozen Onion Ring?


Preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Preheating your air fryer ensures that everything cooks uniformly, which is especially crucial when cooking from frozen.

Take your favorite onion ring brand from the freezer. In your air fryer, place 6 to 7 ounces of frozen onion rings. This turned out to be half of a bag of Alexia Onion Rings.

This recipe was cooked in my Cosori Air Fryer. It has a square basket and is ideal for preparing enough food for my four-person family.

Cook the onion rings in the basket for 4-5 minutes, shaking halfway through.

  • Regardless of the brand, we have a time range for crispy onion rings that you can count on. You’ll get a delicious batch that tastes like it came straight from the deep fryer if you adjust the timing as needed.
  • The best part is that you didn’t have to use any oil. It’s difficult to resist creating a second batch of onion rings because the crunch is so fantastic!
  • Don’t defrost the meat first. When onion rings are cooked straight from the freezer, they are the crispiest. There’s no need to thaw it first.
  • The more you fill the air fryer basket/tray, the more you’ll need to shake it to ensure that everything cooks evenly.
  • Don’t overfill the basket/tray. The maximum you should fill it with is around 1/2 full.

By coating onion rings in flour, egg, and breadcrumbs, I attempted to produce my own handmade onion rings. While they do turn out acceptable, the breeding doesn’t seem to stick, and they aren’t as good as I’d like.
