If you are regularly on Facebook, then the chances are, that you have seen the ads for the Crimpit.

The idea that you can make delicious pasties, calazones, warm toasties and such like and then use the Crimpit to create the perfect shape before air frying.

I have had the same super cheap pasty maker for more than ten years, I am well overdue an upgrade and jumped at the chance to try out the Crimpit. I did so first with the sandwich thin version and then purchased the wrap version.

Today, I wanted to share with you all about the crimipt, crimpit in air fryer, how to use a crimpit and if you can use a crimpit without a microwave.

Beyond our recipes we are sharing with you today we have many recipes with wraps including…. Air fryer tortilla chips, air fryer slimming world sausage rolls, air fryer KFC twister, pie maker quiche, and of course air fryer taquitos.

What Is A Crimpit?

A Crimpit, or as many people call it a Crimpit tool is a kitchen gadget accessory to shape your bread or your wraps.

You can get the sandwich thins version which is our favourite as well as the Crimpit wrap.

Just like a pasty maker or a empanadas, you add the pastry (or wraps or thins) and it perfectly shapes them ready for you to air fry.  

Where Can I Buy A Crimpit?

We bought both the sandwich thins Crimpit and the wraps Crimpit from Amazon and with our prime membership received next day delivery.

Your Crimpit then comes in a cute box to keep it nice in between use.

Can You Use A Crimpit Without A Microwave?

Yes, we have experimented thoroughly with the Crimpit and felt it did a better job WITHOUT the microwave.

Using the microwave for the wraps was a surprise to us. When we read the instructions for the Crimpit for wraps it recommends a little microwave time to soften the wraps. But the wraps pressed down and shaped, then cook so perfectly in the air fryer its not necessary.

Can I Use Normal Bread In A Crimpit?

Yes you can use normal bread in a Crimpit. It’s all about the thickness of the bread, so if you are using a different bread product, roll it with the rolling pin to flatten it, if it is too thick.  

How To Use A Crimpit?

With the Crimpits the easiest option is to layer your wrap or pastry or sandwich thin over the Crimpit.

But do so in a way that you don’t overfill the wrap and so that the wrap will fold over without all the filling leaking out. Just like when you are folding over a sandwich.

Then you transfer the just created Crimpit with its filling to the air fryer basket and air fry.  

Best Air Fryer Crimpit

We have tried many different fillings and many different shapes and have found that our two favourites are a cheese and bean filling using the sandwich thins or making a wrap with a pizza style filling.

Though you might find your own Crimpit recipe that you love.

Crimpit Air Fryer Ingredients

Crimpit Air Fryer Ingredients

Wraps – We love Weight Watchers Wraps they are of the perfect size and if doing the Crimpit sandwich thin, then you can usually make two out of each WW wrap.

Filling – For Crimpit ideas I am sure we all have different ideas for perfect fillings. We love baked beans with cheese. It’s a simple cheap filling and its amazing how many you can make from one can of beans. You can of course do any pizza filling, or how about your favourite toastie filling?

Can You Recommend An Air Fryer?

I often get asked which air fryers I recommend and which one I use. In 95% of our air fryer recipes, we use either the Philips Air Fryer XL or the Cosori XL because they are the best ones, we have found out of many air fryers we have tried over the years. You can click on the links above and read up on them.

But if you would rather have a dual air fryer we recommend this Ninja Dual (make sure you order the right one as not all are good) or the Philips Dual.

How To Cook Crimpits In Air Fryer?

  • Load. Place the wrap over the Crimpit and half fill the Crimpit with your chosen filling. Fold the wrap over the filling so that none of the filling is exposed. Then use the lid of the Crimpit to press down and create the crimped look.  
  • Brush. Egg wash the top of the wrap using a pastry brush and then your air fryer crimpit is ready to be cooked.
  • Cook. Then place the Crimpit thins into the air fryer basket and air fry for 6 minutes at 180c/360f.  

And that is how easy Crimpits are to use and how you can follow our Crimpits air fryer recipe.

How Long To Cook A Crimpit In An Air Fryer?

The recommend Crimpit air fryer time is JUST 6 minutes. This is based on cooking four of the Crimpit thin.

But if you are making Crimpit wraps in the air fryer instead cook for 6 minutes at 200c/400f because they are bigger.   

For Crimpit air fryer temperature we recommend for the sandwich thins 180c/360f and then for the Crimpit wrap maker we recommend 200c/400f for an even crisp.

Crimpit Wrap Leftovers

I find that if I am using the Crimpit sandwich thin and making cute little toasties from the wraps that I have an overhang.

What we do with the leftovers is air fry them and then we can turn them into air fryer tortilla chips and then use them for our instant pot tortilla soup. It is so good!
