Making toast in the air fryer is super easy and the clean-up is a breeze! If you’ve been waiting to ditch your toaster or toaster oven, here is your sign!

How Long Do You Put Toast in the Air Fryer?

Place the bread in the basket of the air fryer. For a texture that is mediumtoasted, cook for 3 minutes at 320 degrees F. If you like crispy toasty, cook for 4 minutes. If you want it just lightly toasted, 2 minutes is perfect. That’s it!

For an absolutely delicious variation, when the bread has finished toasting, spread a bit of butter on it and then toast it at 310 degrees F for an additional minute. It’s SO good!

PRO TIPS/RECIPE NOTES

  • There is no need to preheat your air fryer.
  • You can still make toast in the air fryer even if your air fryer doesn’t have a “toast” setting. You can use the “bake” or “air fryer” settings.
  • There is no need to flip the bread during cooking.
  • You can put butter on the bread before toasting it, but I find it creates more cleanup.
  • Occasionally, lighter bread may move around in a basket-style air fryer due to the powerful fan. You can place a wire rack on top of the toast if this happens in your machine.
