Reheat Onion Rings

My love affair with onion rings started in my teens. Out for dinner with my vegetarian cousin and she ordered an onion rings tower. It was absolutely delicious and came with this amazing dipping sauce.

I binged my way through these beer battered onion rings and realised that this was a perk of being a vegetarian.

Then next time I ordered a takeout when my parents were out, my tradition became a cheese pizza, fries and onion rings.

But even with my teenage appetite I never quite managed to finish it all and would reheat in the microwave the next day leftover pizza, fries, and onion rings.

But we have an air fryer now for reheating. So, after showing you how easy it is reheat pizza in the air fryer and reheating air fryer fries, now is the day of the onion rings.

Can I Reheat Onion Rings In Microwave?

Yes you can and like I mentioned above, I would do this with fries and leftover pizza at the same time.

Even though it does taste nice, your onion rings are rather soggy, but it’s a great option when all you have available to you is a microwave.

But the modern alternative is to reheat onion rings in the air fryer. The air fryer is like a deep fat fryer and can make your onion rings crispy again and stop that soggy problem.

You can also dump your leftover pizza and fries in the air fryer too.

Can You Reheat Onion Rings The Next Day?

Yes you can. When you have finished eating and have your onion ring leftovers, place them in the fridge on a small plate or in your takeout box.

Then the next day load your cold onion rings into the air fryer for reheating.

Reheat Calamari Rings

As well as onion rings, you can use these same cook times and tips to reheat calamari rings. After all, the only difference is squid instead of onion. But they are often the same size and have the same batter.

Only thing to think about, is that calamari rings can only be reheated once and must be refrigerated after eating.

How To Reheat Onion Rings To Make Them Crispy?

The secret to reheating onion rings to make them crispy is the extra virgin olive oil spray and ending on a higher temperature.

You can also make your onion rings even crispier by adding a couple of extra minutes cook time at the end, if you feel they are not crispy enough for you.

From my nine years using the air fryer I have found that not all air fryers are created equal and some less powerful ones need an extra couple of minutes.

Best Temperature To Reheat Onion Rings?

The best temperature for reheating onion rings is 160c or 320f. This is because you want to reheat your onion rings and not cook your onion rings.

Then the temperature goes up to 200c or 400f to get your onion rings crispy.

Notes

Turning. I recommend turning your onion rings otherwise they can end up sticking to the air fryer basket or being crispy on one side and soggy on the other.
Types. You can use battered or breaded onion rings in this recipe, the choice is yours.
Oil. I recommend spraying with extra virgin olive oil or your onion rings will not get as crispy as it reheats back through.
Frozen. If reheating frozen onion rings, I recommend you follow our air fryer frozen onion rings recipe instead as it will be more accurate to your needs.
