How Do I Cook Burgers in the Air Fryer?
I like to use the pre-made burger patties from the butcher section of my local grocery store. If you prefer to create and mold your own burgers, use ground chuck 80/20 fat.
Here is a Step By Step Guide on How to Make Burgers.
How Long Do You Cook a Hamburger in the Air Fryer?
Cook the burgers for 12 minutes total. Cook for 8 minutes, flip the burgers and cook an additional 3-4 minutes.
How Long Do You Cook Frozen Hamburger Patty in the Air Fryer?
Frozen burgers need about 15 minutes to cook.
How Do You Cook Steak in the Air Fryer?
Steak needs 7 minutes cook time for medium doneness using the Power Air Fryer. Check out my Marinated Air Fryer Steak recipe!
Is the Air Fryer Really Healthy?
The air fryer cuts the fat. Air frying cuts up to 80% of the fat of traditional deep frying. Most deep fried foods require 2-3 cups of oil. You will only need a tablespoon with most air fryer recipes. Also, most deep-fried oils use canola or vegetable oil.
I typically use olive oil with the air fryer, which is much healthier.
Can you put aluminum foil in the Air Fryer?
Yes, you can use aluminum foil in the air fryer.

- Season the ground beef with the liquid smoke, Worcestershire, burger seasoning, salt, and pepper to taste. Form 4 burger patties
- Place the burgers in the air fryer. I cooked mine two at a time.
- Cook the burgers for 8 minutes on 360 degrees.
- Open the air fryer and flip the burgers. Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes.
- Check the inside of the burgers to determine if they have finished cooking. You can stick a knife or fork in the center to examine the color.
- Top each burger with a slice of cheese. Cook for an additional two minutes or until the cheese has melted.
- Serve on buns.
I cooked the burgers two at a time due to the size of my air fryer basket.
Total cook time will vary based on how done you like your burgers. You can also use a meat thermometer to gauge: 125 degrees (rare), 135 degrees (medium rare), 145 degrees for medium, 155 degrees for medium well, and 160 degrees for well done.
I like to serve my burgers on toasted buns. After cooking the burgers, you can let them toast in the air fryer for a couple of minutes.
If you are using turkey burgers, the cook time should remain the same.
You will notice grease in the bottom of the air fryer pan. This did not cause any smoke during the cook process. You should clean the pan right away.
Here is the order in which I load up my burgers:
Bottom Bun (toasted)
Lettuce: Fold up the lettuce and form a circular shape so that it covers the bun
Slice of Tomato
Top Bun (toasted) with ketchup
Secure with a toothpick
