Recipe notes and expert tips
- Don’t overcrowd
Resist the temptation to put too many mushrooms in at once; the air needs to be able to circulate around the mushrooms.
- Keep a watch
Different air fryers cook at different times, so keep a watch on your mushrooms; they may need more or less time. Larger mushrooms will also need a longer cooking time.
Keep your mushrooms in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
How to store air fryer mushrooms
You’ll want to ensure that the mushrooms have cooled to room temperature; if they are still hot, you’ll get condensation which will make them soggy.
Place a layer of ever so slightly damp paper towel in the bottom of an airtight container and store them in a single layer for up to 4 days.
You can freeze them for up to a month, but they don’t keep their texture and we don’t recommend this.

What are the best mushrooms to cook in an air fryer?
You can use many different types of mushrooms, but the best way to cook them is to use fresh mushrooms.
We use baby Bellas (baby chestnut mushrooms).
But you could use regular button cremini mushrooms or white button mushrooms also.
Naturally, you can air fry most mushrooms, but the flavors and timings change.
Portobello mushrooms are lovely but need slightly longer in the air fryer.
Once you air fry mushrooms, you’ll never go back to the traditional way of cooking.
What is the best air fryer to use?
There are so many different makes and models of air fryers around these days, and we can’t claim to have tried them all.
This is the air fryer that we use and love.
Our favorite air fryer is the Instant pot Vortex and we like this for its intuitive display, the filter stops lasting food smells, and you can see your food cooking through the glass panel and light function.
We love it because it cooks perfectly, is very quiet, and has a window so you can check on the food without having to open the air fryer.
