BEST TIP: Test 1 piece of bacon first so you can see what your preferred timing and crispness is based on your air fryer mode. Everyone has a personal preference for bacon crispness. If you find that your Air Fryer can cook it better when it's hotter, then go for it. Timing varies with different size air fryer styles and models. Here's our general guidelines: For crispy bacon - 380-400°F for about 8-10 minutes, flip halfway. For a less crispy soft bodied bacon - 340-360°F, 10-12 minutes, flip halfway. Set your timer and don't forget to flip!

GOOD VENTILATION: Make sure to cook the bacon in a well ventilated area. Turn on your kitchen exhaust fans and open up a few windows. You will get some smoking because that's the nature of grease cooking at hot temperatures. Please Read the full recipe write up about excess smoking and best practices for cooking air fryer bacon.
