Air Fryer Carrots Tips

  • To make sure your carrots are perfectly cooked, insert a fork or toothpick into a carrot slice. It should easily pierce through, indicating that they are tender inside and crispy outside.
  • Overcrowding can lead to uneven cooking. Make sure your carrots are in a single layer for the best results.
  • Preheating the air fryer is crucial for achieving that crispy texture. Don’t skip this step.
  • The cooking time for your carrots depends on their size. Smaller carrots will cook faster, whereas larger ones will require a bit more time. To gauge their readiness, be sure to check your carrots when they’re halfway through cooking.
