Air Fryer Frozen Dinner Rolls

Air fryers are small appliances that consume much less energy than full-sized ovens. Many air fryers use around 1,500 watts. By contrast, a full-size oven uses between 2,500 and 5,000 watts. This makes air fryers doubly efficient in terms of energy consumption. It also makes air fryers less expensive to use. A typical gas oven costs $0.30 to $0.40 per hour of cooking, while an electric oven costs about $0.52 an hour. An air fryer, meanwhile, uses about half as much energy and costs $0.25 an hour.

Besides potentially saving you money on electricity, air fryers can cook up to twice as quickly as your average oven. Plus, the average oven takes 10 to 15 minutes to preheat, while air fryers generally don’t need to be preheated at all or for nearly as long. Remember, all air fryer models are different, so experiment a bit until you find what’s best for yours.

Let rolls rise if instructed.
Preheat the air fryer to 350°F. (Whether your air fryer has a setting for this or not, giving it a 5-minute head start will help the rolls cook faster.)
Cook rolls for the time instructed on the store-bought packaging.
Don’t crowd the basket.
Cooking the rolls in a single layer will help them cook evenly.
Fewer rolls will cook more quickly.
Check for doneness before declaring them finished; slice one open to double-check.
Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with flaky salt, then pop them back in the air fryer for a final minute.
