How to Reheat Spring Rolls in an Air Fryer

Reheating spring rolls in an air fryer is a fantastic way to revive their crispy texture and ensure they’re as enjoyable as when they were freshly made. The air fryer’s rapid air circulation heats the spring rolls evenly, crisping up the exterior without drying out the filling. Here’s how to achieve perfectly reheated spring rolls using an air fryer:

Instructions for Reheating Spring Rolls

1. Preheat the Air Fryer

  • Begin by preheating your air fryer to 350°F (about 175°C). This step ensures the spring rolls start reheating immediately and helps to restore their crispiness more effectively.

2. Arrange the Spring Rolls

  • Place the spring rolls in the air fryer basket. Space them out in a single layer, ensuring they’re not touching. This arrangement allows the hot air to circulate around each spring roll, promoting an even and crispy texture.

3. Reheat

  • Cook the spring rolls for about 4-6 minutes. Since air fryer models can vary in their heating elements and fan strength, it’s a good idea to check on the spring rolls halfway through the reheating process.

4. Check for Crispiness

  • After the initial reheating time, check the spring rolls for your desired level of crispiness. If they’re not as crispy as you’d like, you can continue to reheat them in 1-minute increments, checking after each minute to avoid overcooking.

5. Serve Immediately

  • Once the spring rolls have reached the perfect level of crispiness, carefully remove them from the air fryer and serve immediately. They are best enjoyed hot and crispy.

Tips for Perfectly Reheated Spring Rolls

  • Avoid Overcrowding: Reheat the spring rolls in batches if necessary to ensure they’re not overcrowded in the air fryer basket. Overcrowding can lead to uneven reheating and less crispy spring rolls.
  • No Need to Thaw: If reheating frozen spring rolls, there’s no need to thaw them first. You may need to add a couple of minutes to the cooking time for frozen spring rolls.
  • Use a Light Spray of Oil (Optional): For an extra crispy exterior, you can lightly spray the spring rolls with oil before reheating. However, this is usually not necessary, as the air fryer will naturally crisp up the spring rolls.


Using an air fryer to reheat spring rolls is a quick and efficient method to enjoy this delicious appetizer with a texture that’s close to freshly fried. By following these simple steps, you ensure your spring rolls are evenly reheated, crispy on the outside, and warm on the inside, making for a delightful snack or addition to your meal.
