Preparation – 5 minutes

Remove the husks and silks from the corn cobs if necessary. Place baking parchment in the basket of the air fryer.

Mix the chilli powder, garlic powder, paprika and olive oil. Use a brush to spread the mixture evenly over the corn cobs. If you have some leftover, you can pour them over the corn cobs while baking.

Air fryer corn on the cob: frequently asked questions

Where can I buy corn on the cob?

Depending on the season, you can buy corn on the cob at any grocery store.

How do I peel corn on the cob?

Corn cobs are very easy to peel by pulling off the husk from above. Then remove the silks and cut off the bottom of the cob.

To make it even easier, you can briefly boil the whole corn on the cob, husk on, in water. You can remove the husk and silks even faster and more easily after cooking for a short time.
