  • Air Fryer


  • 2 large white onions Note 1
  • spray olive oil


  • Turn the air fryer on to 180°C/350 F (allow 5 mins to preheat if your model requires it)
  • Use a knife and chopping board to slice the onions into rounds. Peel the skin off the outside and separate the rings.
  • Add sliced onions to Air Fryer basket or lined tray. Spray with cooking oil (optional, but recommended)
  • Cook onions for 8 mins, stir (Note 2), the cook for a further 7 mins


  • Note 1 For a 7 litre Air Fryer, you can use between 1 to 4 onions at the same time. More and it is best to work in batches. 
  • Note 2 Just like cooking on the stove top, when cooking in the Air Fryer you can 'stir' the ingredients. Simply pull the Air Fryer basket handle towards you (Air Fryer will shut off), use a silicon based utensil to stir the onions around then push the basket back in again using the handle. Or if using a tray style Air Fryer, push the tray back in and continue cooking.
