Air Fry Frozen Potstickers

When I write the words “frozen potstickers in air fryer” I see another opportunity to share with you a) how good the air fryer is for frozen food and b) another way to cook delicious Chinese food in the air fryer.

I have already done air fryer Chinese chicken wings, air fryer frozen egg rolls, air fryer spring rolls and air fryer frozen butterfly shrimp. But lets not forget how to cook breaded chicken in the air fryer, which reminds of the battered chicken you get at the Chinese buffet.

Talking about the Chinese buffet, that is where I am at when I am thinking about potstickers.

Whether you refer to them as air fryer frozen potstickers or air fryer frozen dumplings, it is one of those Chinese treats that you can cook at home and create your own Chinese takeout.

You can also do your favourite Chinese buffet food in batches and then create an amazing Chinese buffet at home.

Plus, unlike at the Chinese you are air frying your Chinese food which is keeping the calories down.

  1. In your pdf air fryer favorites cook times, are the cook times the same for any size roast or food item? I.e. the pork loin roast is 80 minutes @360f. Is this per pound, or any size roast?

    1. Hi Don,

      The 80 minutes cook time is for the whole roast. So for the pork loin roast in the air fryer our roast was 1.2 kg roughly 2.65 lbs and it cooked in 80 minutes. So if the pork is bigger add more time on and vice versa if the pork is smaller 🙂
