Tips to Cook Hot Pocket in Air Fryer

  • The Hot Pockets should be transferred from the freezer to the Air Fryer for the finest results. You’ll wind up with mushy Hot Pockets if you thaw them first.

  • There’s no reason to use cooking spray on these, and they will crisp up properly without any oil.
  • Since each air fryer is slightly different, check your Hot Pockets In the Air Fryer periodically during the cooking process.

How to Cook Hot Pocket in Air Fryer

It is quite easy to make a hot pocket in an air fryer. Follow through with these steps, and you’re good.

Preheat The Air Fryer

Preheat the air fryer for 5 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. If your air fryer does not get automatically warm, simply turn it on to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and let it run for 5 minutes.

In the air fryer, arrange the hot pockets in a single layer, leaving space between them. Cook them in batches if you’re making more hot pockets than your unit can hold.

Cook The Hot Pockets

Air fry the hot pocket on one side for 11-13 minutes – until it is crisp and cooked through.

You can serve it warm and enjoy the delicious dish.

Save Recipe


  • 1 package of Hot Pockets.


  1. Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Remove the crisper from the Hot Pocket sandwiches and gently place them in the air fryer. I don’t think you will be needing it after all.
  3. You can keep the crisper sleeves on hand to hold the pizzas once they’re done cooking.
  4. For 11-13 minutes, air fry the hot pockets. It’s not necessary to flip them halfway through.
  5. Allow them to cool for at least 5 minutes after removing them from the air fryer. This is because they will be really hot on the inside, much like when you microwave them.
  6. Go ahead to place them inside the crisper sleeves and enjoy as you please.
