The Perfect Air Fryer Hamburger

Why would you ever make an Air Fryer Burger when you could grill? I asked myself this exact question. After tasting an air fried hamburger, my whole perspective has been changed.

As if anything could be better than a grilled hamburger, this air fryer hamburger is so juicy and delicious. It cooks up in 15 minutes with no flipping required.

No Flipping Required?

When air frying your hamburgers you want to make sure you have your crisper in the bottom. Not sure if you have a crisper? It’s the piece that sits in the bottom of your air fryer to keep the food just barely off the bottom.

If you don’t have a crisper you may need to flip your burgers halfway through. I never have and they’ve always turned out perfect – Less hassle is always a win at my house.

Advantages to air frying your hamburger over grilling:

  1. It’s so easy. No tending, no flipping, you just drop the patties onto the crisper, add your favorite seasoning, set the time and you’re done.
  2. Air fried burgers are SO JUICY! Burgers on the grill can dry out or potentially get charred. I was shocked at the juiciness and flavor of the air fryer burger.
  3. If you don’t like to see the pink in the middle of your burger, then air fried burgers are for you!!! They will be juicy and cooked evenly. I’ve gotta be honest, the no pink is what really sold me.
  4. Hand-molded burgers don’t fall apart in the air fryer. When using my grill I always have to buy the pre-molded burgers. Maybe it’s just me, but every time I’ve tried to mold that perfect cylinder and thrown it on the grill it turns into a crumbled mess.
  5. If it’s cold outside it’s so hard to control the temperature of your grill. Stay inside and enjoy your burger in the comfort of your home.

Common Questions asked about a Air fryer Hamburger:

How long does it take to cook a hamburger in an air fryer?

It only takes 15 minutes to cook! That is the perfect no pink burger.

Are hamburgers good in air fryer?

They come out juicy and delicious every time. The seasoning doesn’t burn off like it can do on the grill making the hamburger so flavorful.

Can you cook a frozen hamburger in an air fryer?

Absolutely! Just add an additional 2-4 minutes of cooking time to allow them to cook through.

If the burgers are too big for the air fryer to fit 4 at once, make them in batches. They will stay warm on a plate covered with foil and if they get cold, just add them back into the air fryer for a min before serving.

How To Make The Perfect Air Fryer Hamburger

  1. Preheat air fryer to 350 degrees.
  2. Lay four quarter pound patties on top of the crisper in the bottom of your air fryer.  I prefer 85/15 fat content in my ground beef.
  3. Coat liberally with seasoned salt or your favorite hamburger seasoning.
  4. Some people flip their burgers halfway through.  I’ve never done that and they cook both sides evenly on the crisper.
  5. Dress the burger with all the condiments you like. Enjoy!

How to make the Air Fryer Hamberger into a Cheeseburger
