FAQs about Cinnamon Rolls in the Air Fryer:
Why make cinnamon rolls in the Air Fryer?
If you've made cinnamon rolls as much as we have, it takes a little extra time in a standard oven. Instead of preheating the oven and cooking the cinnamon rolls, use the Air Fryer! It's a quick and easy way to make a deliciously prepared breakfast.
How long do you cook Cinnamon Rolls in the Air Fryer?
We cook Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls for 8 minutes in our Air Fryers with perfect results every time. If you are using a different brand of cinnamon rolls, we suggest running a test batch first and setting the cook time to 6 minutes.
This will ensure you don't overcook the different brand and allows you to add additional cook time if needed.
You can always add time, but you cant do anything if they are overcooked!
Should you use Parchment Paper for Cinnamon Rolls in the Air Fryer?
I prefer to use parchment paper when making my cinnamon rolls. It also makes for easier cleanup.
Make sure you don't add the parchment paper until you have already preheated the Air Fryer and only when you're ready to add your foods.
What should I use if I don't have parchment paper?
If you don't have parchment paper available, use a non stick olive oil based cooking spray.

I don’t know when to use the bake setting and when to use the air fry setting. Please help!
I ALWAYS use the air fryer setting. I don't even use the other settings because this is the setting that I use to make sure I am achieving the right time and temperature. 🙂 Hope that helps!
Can a silicone basket be used for cooking? Like the ones on Amazon.🤗
Do I preheat first and then put the parchment paper and spray in or do I put the paper and spray in first then preheat?
Always preheat first! the parchment paper can blow up into the fan and burn.
8 minutes was too long for mine. i should have checked before. i will next time.
