Quick and easy hamburgers in Air fryer

We like to eat Danish beef patties. It’s something that all 4 of us really like, and you can vary the side dishes endlessly.

It’s always nice to have a Danish beef patty with soft onions, but a with fries and béarnaise is also just lovely.

We are pretty excited about making hamburgers in our air fryer. Because it’s just easy and they take care of themselves once they’re put on.

In addition, it does not mess up the stove and surrounding walls, and it is easy to just throw the air fryer basket in the dishwasher.

So absolutely perfect everyday food for a busy family with children like ours.

In addition, the hamburgers are perfectly cooked every time, and you can easily fry them so that they are still pink in the middle if you also prefer to have a beef patty like that.

Ingredient notes

Beef – We must of course use minced beef. We usually choose something with some fat in it to get the juiciest steaks.

Salt and pepper – Classic patties just need to be well seasoned with salt and pepper, but you can of course experiment with other spices if you like.

How to make Air fryer hamburgers?

It is actually quite easy to make air fryer hamburgers.

First, of course, they must be shaped, and this is exactly the same as if you wanted to fry them in the frying pan.

After that, they get oil spray, and then they have to have salt and pepper before they are placed on the rack at the bottom of the air fryer basket.

Then the patties just need to be put in and the machine switched on, and then they need to have approximately 10 minutes at 180 degrees Celcius. Then they are as we would like them to be. Delicious and juicy. If you want them to be a little pinker, try to cook them for 8 minutes, to begin with.

It depends a lot on the type of machine you have, so the first time you make them, you have to experiment a bit until you find the right cooking time. Of course, it also depends on the thickness of the patties.

  • Air fryer


  • 800 g ground beef
  • Olive oil preferably a spray
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste


  • The ground beef is divided into portions of 200 g. Shape the meat into patties of approx. 2 cm in thickness.
    – I use a steak press for that, it works quite well. You can buy them in many shops. They can also easily be shaped by hand.
    800 g ground beef
  • The patties are sprayed with a thin layer of oil and seasoned on both sides with salt and pepper to taste.
    Olive oil, Salt, Pepper
  • Preheat your air fryer for a few minutes at a temperature of 180 degrees Celcius.
  • When the air fryer is hot, put the steaks on the rack and cook them for approx. 10 minutes at 180 degrees Celcius.
    – If you want them to be slightly red, you only have to give them 8 minutes.
  • When the steaks are ready, take them out of the air fryer and serve them immediately.
  • Attention:
    Not two air fryers heat the same way, so the first time you try the recipe, it is important that you keep an eye on the patties and adjust the time if needed. Our air fryer is a Cosori Dualblaze, and 10 minutes is perfect for that machine.



If you have leftovers, you can store the steaks in the fridge for the next day, or you can freeze them for another time.

Air fryer

We use a Cosori Dualblaze Air fryer, we are really happy with it, and it can only be recommended if you are looking for a user-friendly air fryer that cooks food quickly and is easy to clean.
