Easy Air Fryer Corn on the Cob

 Air fryers are a wonderful tool to have in your kitchen. If you don't have an air fryer consider making room on your kitchen counter for one. From main dishes, and side dishes to desserts, there isn't anything you can't do with an air fryer.

Our daughter got us a Ninja Foodi Grill for Christmas a few years ago. It is a combination grill and air fryer, and we use it all of the time to make so many easy meals.

Summertime is corn season and grilled corn is a favorite of ours. If you don't feel like firing up the grill just for corn or boiling water to heat up the kitchen try the air fryer.

It's so easy to make in the air fryer, in just 15 minutes you will enjoy that delicious toasted corn flavor with your favorite garnish for added flavor.

I started with five fresh ears of corn and brushed them with olive oil on all sides, or you could use melted butter. 

Then, I coated them all around with Hidden Valley Ranch Seasoning. I preheated the air fryer to 375 degrees and set the time for 15 minutes. We added melted butter and salt for a delicious side dish. My air fryer basket easily fits five ears of corn.

This works well for fresh or frozen corn, but I prefer fresh corn on the cob. If you have an air fryer give this a try, your family is going to love it.

Other Topping Ideas for Corn on the Cob:
  • Sour cream
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Crumbled bacon
  • Chili powder
  • Paprika 
  • Old Bay seasoning
  • Cajun seasoning
These are just a few more ideas for garnishing corn on the cob. I'm sure everybody has their favorite.

  1. My favorite food is corn, cooked just about any way it can be served alone. Corn on the cob is one of my all time favorite sides. How awesome to be able to cook it in an air fryer, something I never even considered. I like the way your air fryer opens on the top. I need to seriously consider a Ninja air fryer so I can make all of the fabulous air fryer recipes you share.

  2. I LOVE corn-on-the-cob - especially covered in (real) butter. I always thought New York State corn was the best growing up, but after living in Iowa for 3 years, I have to admit they are the BEST corn state. LOL. Anyway, my daughter recently got a Ninja Air Fryer and she is having a ball trying out different things in it. I will send this review of Air Fryer Corn on the Cob to her for her next dish to try out. Sounds terrific.

  3. There aren’t many high carb Foo I still have a hankering for after four years of a low carb lifestyle, but corn on the carb is one of the few I really miss. Your air fryer corn on the cob recipe sounds wonderful and easy! Thanks for sharing it, Sam. 🌽

  4. I love my air fryer and use it most every day. I had never tried corn yet, so I will definitely give this a try. Thanks for the recommendation.

  5. Sam, I have to try this! Our oven has a built in air fryer and this would be a hit - what a great idea for a small family gathering

  6. We love corn on the cob and your recipe sounds great! We do not have an air fryer but it sounds a very useful item to have. Thank you for your review, recipe and recommendations.
