Air Fryer Frozen Corn On The Cob
I LOVE corn on the cob. Its one of my all-time favourite dinner sides. With a little salt and pepper and some melted butter and I am in.
It’s like a lot of foods that is loaded up with butter, add in the butter and you forget that it is vegetables, as it tastes just so, so good.
But I often find that fresh corn on the cob can be expensive, plus Dominic doesn’t care for it. So, I end up not buying it.
I am a frugal mum and often think that if everyone doesn’t eat it, then what is the point in buying it?
Why Air Fryer Frozen Corn On The Cob
I love bags of frozen corn on the cob. They don’t stick together, and you can grab a frozen corn on the cob whenever you want one, place it in the air fryer and then let the air fryer do the hard work for you.
If you also have an Instant Pot (like we do), then you can be cooking a whole rotisserie chicken in the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker, while your corn on the cob cooks from frozen in the air fryer. Then pair it up with some other vegetables or some potatoes and you have dinner on the table.
Air Fryer corn on the cob also works well as Air Fryer Party Food, if you saw our feature that we did yesterday, then you will know, we feel it is essential for pulling off an air fryer party.
After all, who doesn’t love the melted butter smothered over a corn on the cob?

Can You Reheat Corn On The Cob In An Air Fryer?
Yes, you can, and we did on the day that these frozen corn on the cob pictures were taken.
You see we were making you a video (see it here) to go with the recipe and we had loads of corn on the cob leftover that we were too full to eat.
So, what we did instead was reheat the corn on the cob in the air fryer for supper. We set the temperature to 160c/320f and the cook time to 5 minutes and had perfectly reheated corn on the cob.
Then I looked down at my plate and realised while I was tidying the kitchen my four year old had stolen my corn on the cob!
