Summer is in full swing and we’ve really been enjoying this warm weather in the Midwest! Over the 4th of July we’ll be hosting lots of family and friends up at our lake cabin and when it’s hot out, the last thing you want to do is turn on your oven or stove burners when preparing meals.
We grill out a lot when we’re up at the lake, and lately, I’ve been using the air fryer to help prepare side dishes. This Air Fryer Corn on the Cob is the perfect side to burgers, pork chops, chicken and more!
And, in my opinion, corn in the air fryer is even better than grilled corn!
PREPPING THE CORN
You’ll want to start with husked and trimmed ears of sweet corn. I’ve found that four ears of corn are the perfect amount to cook at one time. You don’t want to stack the cobs. They should all lay flat and have their own space in the fryer.
Liberally spray the ears of corn with a nonstick cooking spray like Pam. I looked in my pantry to see if I had the butter-flavored Pam but I didn’t, so I just opted to use the original.
Season the corn with salt and black pepper to your taste and then place the ears in the air fryer basket.
In less than 10 minutes, you’ll have sweet, crisp ears of roasted corn! And once you add the melted butter, it will take things over the top!
Corn on the cob is such a gorgeous representation of summer and a great choice when you’re serving a larger group of guests.

Tried this recipe tonight. Delicious! The air fryer almost gave it a ‘right off the bbq grill
kind of taste.
Yum! And I love that you can use it year round!
Salt and pepper on a big plate before you put them into air fryer. Don’t use pam to spray them unless you do it before you put them IN the airfryer. You don’t want pam inside the unit. Trust me. Olive oil in sprayer does the trick or reg. oil Yummy
Absolutely perfect. Up until now I have been enjoying COTC in the instant pot but this is so much better. Thanks for sharing.
So glad you enjoyed it, Dale! I have a feeling I’ll be making lots of corn come August!
It is an awesome recipe. I like oily food. Can I add here a little bit more oil in this recipe?
Not sure about adding more oil. Maybe just put more butter on the corn before you eat it! Enjoy!
can you used thaw out from frozen corn?
I wouldn’t see why not!
Perfect! I love the texture and browned edges
Super simple and easy to make. The cobs came out perfectly cooked and delicious, just like grilled !
