It takes about 10-12 minutes to fully cook in the air fryer. You can double check with an instant read thermometer. Burgers are done when the center reaches 160 degrees F.

I like to use a leaner ground beef at least 85/15 to reduce the grease.

Yes, just like a normal method of cooking hamburgers we will be flipping these halfway through the cooking process.

How do I store leftover hamburgers?

If you have any leftovers they can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container where they will keep for up to 3-4 days. These can also be frozen, place cooled hamburgers in a freezer container or bag and they will keep in the freezer for up to 3 months.
