I will never make hot dogs any other way. This is pure genius. The hot dogs in my Philips air fryer needed about 5 minutes. I made slits in them to give more crispiness. I also used gluten free buns, which needed more time. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

Got a new air fryer and had to try it out. Figured before I tried something more substantial, I couldn't possibly ruin a hot dog. I was right. The hotdogs tasted just like we had grilled them outside and the toasted buns were wonderful. Great first outing with the air fryer. Now I have some confidence that I can make something more expensive and not ruin it. Thanks for all the reviews that gave me the angst to try it myself. Kathy Acord Read More

I love them in the air fryer too, but I cook the dogs first for 6 min. Then I put them in the buns and cook everything for another 3-4 minutes. Read More

I cooked turkey hot dogs in my air fryer oven I checked them after three minutes and they weren't done so I continued cooking them for another three minutes. I did rotate them and made slits in them. They came out great! We normally make in microwave or frying pan. This is the best way! Next time I m going to try using the rotisserie option on the skewers. Read More

I just made my second meal with my small air fryer. I had 2 long all-beef wieners that were frozen. I put them in the microwave on defrost for 2 minutes, which thawed them just enough for easier cutting. I cut them in half and placed them in the air fryer at 400 degrees. I set the timer for 5 minutes. Then because I really like them really browned, I turned them and cooked them for another 3 minutes. They were perfect for me and my husband. Read More

8.20.20 A horrendous thunder, lightening, rain storm blew through yesterday evening dumping 7” of rain, so cooking out was not an option. Potato salad and baked baked beans were done, and instead of frying hamburgers and making yet another mess to clean up, decided to try this recipe for hot dogs using the air fryer. It works folks, enough said! Seriously, I don’t know that you get that much more flavor grilling hot dogs, and it’s doubtful I’ll even bother again. Being able to toast the buns in the air fryer also is a plus, it makes a difference. Admittedly, this one surprised me, it’s simply good! Read More
