How to cook corn on the cob in the air fryer:
This is almost as easy as making air fryer frozen french fries.
Just brush the oil over your corn cobs. Get it evenly all over the corn.
Put the corn in the air fryer basket, but don’t stack them.
Cook for 8-10 minutes at 400 degrees F. Flip after 5 mintues.
Answer a question:
No. We encourage you to use con that have husks and silks removed. After coating with oil, the roasting effect that takes place in the air fryer will make your corn a delectable texture!
You definitely can leave the husks on, but you’ll need to soak the corn in cold water for a half hour to an hour. This will let the husk absorb water and help “steam” the corn on the cob while it cooks. This is a bit of extra work, but it is still really easy to do.
Tony’s Creole seasoning is very popular in my family. Even my extended family loves it. We also love our air fryer street corn (linked above).

Comments & Reviews
I prefer to leave husks on when cooking corn so I tried soaking as suggested. Also I did another ear without soaking but tightly wrapped it parchment paper. Both ears had white kernels and were the same size. I cut off a little bit from both ends and peeled back several of the outer husk leaves. I pre-heated my Sur la Table air fryer at 400° for 2 minutes then set it to cook at 400° for 10 minutes. The results were similar but I liked the one wrapped in the parchment. It was more juicy and bouncy than the other one.
Thanks for sharing your tips!
Just a suggestion, an edit button would be nice to have. My comment was submitted before I could correct some typos. Wanted to adjust name that got mangled to only initials.
thanks done perfect
