Exactly how long it takes for your frozen egg rolls to cook in the air fryer will vary depending upon your specific air fryer, and how many egg rolls you are trying to cook.

Using an Air Fryer Oven or Convection Oven
A variation of this recipe is to prepare your frozen egg rolls in a convection oven rather than in an air fryer. To bake a cross in your oven, your first want to preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
Once the oven is preheated, and the egg rolls to a cookie sheet, and if desired you can brush them with a bit of oil. Add the cookie sheet into the oven and bake your egg rolls for approximately 20 minutes or until they are warmed through.
Tips for Success
Cook Frozen. We strongly recommend that you cook your egg rolls directly from the freezer. This will allow them to become nice and crispy, and you do not have to worry about them becoming mushy as they thaw.
Adjust the Cook Time. Depending upon your specific air fryer, you may need to slightly adjust the air frying time for the egg rolls. Feel free to set the timer for slightly less time than you think it will need, then add more time as needed.
Brush with Oil. Although not required, we do recommend that you brush the egg rolls with a bit of olive oil before they are air fried. This allows them to become extra crispy on the outside and turn a lovely golden brown color.
Room temperature. Your egg rolls should be left at room temperature for no more than two hours before they go bad.
In the refrigerator. For longer storage, please store egg rolls in an airtight container, or save them in a plastic storage bag. Then place into the fridge for up to 3 to 4 days.
How to Reheat Egg Rolls
