I have been having so much fun cooking in my air fryer. I am sad that it isn’t super helpful for large families as it is amazingly convenient. (It doesn’t hold much at one time, which is why it is hard to cook for a family in it. It is a quick 12 to 15 minutes for homemade French fries for two or three, but if you need to make that for six or eight or ten, it is extremely time consuming.) However, I would have to say that the air fryer is THE perfect kitchen appliance for empty nesters. Super fast to just toss foods in it and go. Seriously, I LOVE it. I had four roast-an-ears to fix for dinner one night with some bbq beef and stir fried veggies, so I thought I would give it a try in my fryer. Twelve minutes later, after simply brushing them with butter and sprinkling with salt and pepper, I had four perfect ears of corn. They tasted and looked like they had been cooked on the grill. Yum!
As a matter of fact, they were so easy that I almost wasn’t going to write about it here. I mean a couple of simple steps and done. Does this even warrant a blog post? But then I thought that I was glad that I found a video showing how to do it, so I would pay it forward! 🙂 (Check out my other air fryer recipes so far–“Air Fryer Tips and Croutons” and “Air Fried Chicken Drumsticks (Or Tenders.“)
Oh, and have I mentioned how much I am enjoying eating corn and potatoes again since we started Daily Intermittent Fasting? Check out my podcast/videocast here to learn more!

I would do the same except put my cobs in foil to cook the butter would stay in the foil !
This was the best and easiest I’ve ever done in my air fryer. I just love using it more now. I omitted the salt since i used salted butter. The taste was superb.
Donna FYI the new Cuisinart toaster oven air fryer in one has a larger capacity and we are using ours everyday.
My daughters bought me (It must be the biggest air fryer on the market) I roasted a whole 5 lb chicken in about 35 min… I have also baked muffins and cakes in it so I think you can cook for a family with no problem… I will be trying corn what a great idea as soon as summer returns… Thanks for the tip…
I believe you can get a family sized one. It’s a convection oven, isn’t it?
Our grandson got us the Gowise air fryer and we love it, but our daughter got us the crusinart air fryer/ toaster oven and it is great also. We love baking biscuits in the air fryer.
Can you cut the amount of butter/oil? I never butter my corn. It doesnt need it.
Sounds wonderful. I will try this soon.
