How to Reheat Stromboli in an Air Fryer

Reheating stromboli in an air fryer is a great way to achieve a crispy crust and warm, gooey interior, much like when it was freshly made. The air fryer circulates hot air around the stromboli, reheating it evenly without making the crust soggy, which often happens in a microwave. Here’s how to perfectly reheat your stromboli in an air fryer:

Instructions for Reheating Stromboli

1. Preheat the Air Fryer

  • Begin by preheating your air fryer to 350°F (about 175°C). This step ensures that the stromboli starts reheating immediately, contributing to a crispy exterior.

2. Prepare the Stromboli

  • If your stromboli is large, consider slicing it into smaller, more manageable pieces. This will help it heat more evenly and make it easier to check for doneness.

3. Lightly Oil (Optional)

  • For an extra crispy crust, you can lightly brush the stromboli with a small amount of oil. However, this is optional since the air fryer will naturally help crisp up the exterior.

4. Place in the Air Fryer

  • Arrange the stromboli or slices in the air fryer basket, ensuring they are not touching. This spacing allows the hot air to circulate freely, ensuring even reheating.

5. Reheat

  • Heat the stromboli for about 3-5 minutes. The exact time will depend on the size of your stromboli slices and your air fryer model.

6. Check for Warmth

  • After the initial time, check if the stromboli is heated through to the center. If not, continue reheating in 1-minute increments, checking after each to avoid overheating.

7. Serve Immediately

  • Once the stromboli is heated through and the crust is crispy, remove it from the air fryer and let it sit for a minute before serving. This short rest allows the heat to distribute evenly throughout the filling.

Tips for Best Results

  • Avoid Overcrowding: Reheat in batches if necessary to ensure there’s enough space around each piece for optimal air flow.
  • Use Parchment Paper: If you’re concerned about cheese or fillings sticking to the air fryer basket, you can use a piece of parchment paper cut to size with holes in it for better air circulation.
  • Monitor Closely: Since air fryers can vary in their heating efficiency, it’s important to monitor the stromboli closely, especially the first time you reheat this way, to find the perfect timing for your appliance.


Reheating stromboli in an air fryer is a quick and effective method to enjoy a delicious meal with minimal effort. By following these simple steps, you ensure that your stromboli comes out hot, with a crispy crust and deliciously melted interior, almost as if it were freshly baked.
