Can You Reheat Rice in an Air Fryer?

Yes, you can reheat rice in an air fryer! Here’s how:

  1. Put the left-over rice to an air fryer or cake pan.
  2. Cover the pan using aluminum foil.
  3. Place the rice inside the air fryer.
  4. Allow the rice to cook at 320F for 5-6 minutes, or until it’s hot.


Can you reheat any type of rice?

Yes! You can use any type of rice in an air fryer, from white rice to brown rice to sushi rice. The key is to make sure that the rice is cooked before you attempt to reheat it in the air fryer.

If you have leftover cooked rice, simply place it in the air fryer basket and set the temperature to 320-350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook for 5-6 minutes, or until the rice is heated through.

If you don’t have any cooked rice on hand, you can cook rice in the air fryer from scratch. Just add the desired amount of uncooked rice to the air fryer basket, along with some water. Cook at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes, or until the rice is cooked through.

So there you have it! You can absolutely use any type of rice in an air fryer, and it’s actually quite simple to do. Just make sure that the rice is cooked before you attempt to reheat it, and you’ll be good to go.

What if you don’t have an air fryer?

If you don’t have an air fryer, you can still reheat your rice using a convection oven, toaster oven, or range oven. Convection ovens work by circulating hot air around the food, so the rice will reheat evenly and quickly. Toaster ovens and range ovens with convection capabilities also have fans that circulate the hot air, so they can be used to reheat rice as well.

Can you add other ingredients to the rice before reheating?

You can certainly reheat rice in an air fryer, but can you add other ingredients to the rice before reheating? The answer is yes! You can add just about anything you want to the rice before reheating it in the air fryer. This includes vegetables, meats, sauces, and spices. Simply add whatever ingredients you want to the rice and then reheat it in the air fryer. The rice will come out hot and flavorful, and the other ingredients will be cooked to perfection.

What is the best way to store left-over rice?

The key to preserving leftover rice is to quickly cool it and then refrigerate it. Spread the rice in a thin layer on parchment paper or a baking tray to allow it to cool quickly. Once the rice is cool, place it in a container and cover with plastic wrap. Then chill in the refrigerator. The rice should be kept for no longer than one day before being reheated.
