Want to make crispy air fryer frozen spring rolls? Air frying spring rolls from frozen is so easy to do in the air fryer!
Using some of your favorite spring rolls – vegetarian, chicken, or pork-filled – you can have a delicious finger food in just 10 minutes (that’s a lot quicker than making them in the oven). Don’t forget a dipping sauce!
Before you make frozen spring rolls in air fryer, have a look at these recipe tips so that you have the best spring rolls!
- The size of the spring rolls you have (and the size of your air fryer) will dictate how many you can cook. Make sure that your air fryer tray is not overcrowded so that each roll gets a chance to get crispy.
- Spring roll and air fryer size will also dictate the cooking time. Keep an eye on your spring rolls when making them the first time so that they end up crispy and golden brown and not burnt or losing their inner filling.
- We usually make vegetarian spring rolls but rolls with chicken or pork can also be cooked in the air fryer. Again, make sure the inside is cooked through and the outside is crispy!
- We do not add any extra oil to these spring rolls because the spring roll wrapper on frozen rolls is often saturated with oil (to make them crispy). Check the packaging for your specific spring rolls if you are unsure. Ours felt oily to the touch so we knew we were good to air fry without more oil.
We use this air fryer for our recipes and it has been great.
Step by Step Instructions
Cooking spring rolls in the air fryer is simple. But if you’d like to see visuals, have a look at the recipe process photos in this section.

First, preheat the air fryer to 380 degrees Fahrenheit.
When the air fryer is preheated, add the frozen spring rolls. Make sure that they are in one even layer and there is space between them.
If your air fryer is relatively large and fits more than 4 large spring rolls, feel free to add more if you need to.
Cook the spring rolls for 5 minutes, then flip them, and cook them for 4-5 more minutes (for a total of 9-10 minutes).
If you want your spring rolls to be extra crispy, you can cook them for slightly longer but keep an eye on them so they don’t burn or burst and lose their filling.
As mentioned above, keep in mind that cooking time can vary depending on the brand of spring rolls and their size as well as your air fryer – so watch them closely when you make them in the air fryer for the first time.
When they are cooked and have your desired level of crispiness, remove the spring rolls from the air fryer and let them sit for 1-2 minutes.
Then serve them hot with your favorite dipping sauce.
When you make spring rolls from frozen, plan to not have leftovers. This is because once these kinds of spring rolls just taste best when they are hot, crispy, and fresh.
Leftover spring rolls can get quite soggy once they cool. While they can be reheated, they just aren’t the same as when their outer shell is nice and crispy.
What to Serve Air Fryer Frozen Spring Rolls With
Frozen spring rolls make a fantastic finger food or an appetizer. Regardless of which type of spring rolls you have, they always go great with an Asian-inspired dipping sauce.
Off the top of our head, a Hoisin sauce works really well. If you like things spicy, you can always grab some sriracha or even sriracha with a sweeter sauce for a new blended one!
