The Following Ingredients are Required to Prepare Onion Rings in a Nuwave air fryer:

Cook onion rings with the following ingredients on a Nuwave Air Fryer to achieve the real test:

  1. Large sweet onions (Vidalia or any variety suitable for onion rings)
  2. All-purpose flour
  3. Eggs (beaten)
  4. Breadcrumbs or panko (seasoned or plain)
  5. Cooking spray


I’ve listed all the simple step by step instructions for using a Nuwave Air Fryer to make Onion Rings:

Step 1: Preheat the Air Fryer:

Turn on your Nuwave Air Fryer and preheat it to around 375°F (190°C). Preheating usually takes a few minutes.

Step 2: Prepare the Onions:

Peel the onions and slice them into rings of your desired thickness. Separate the rings and set them aside.

Step 3: Set Up a Breading Station:

Set up a breading station with three shallow dishes. In one dish, place the all-purpose flour. On another dish, add the beaten eggs. In the third dish, place the breadcrumbs or panko.

Step 4: Bread the Onion Rings:

Dip each onion ring into the flour, shaking off any excess. Then, dip it into the beaten eggs, making sure it’s coated all over. Finally, coat the onion ring with breadcrumbs or panko, pressing gently to adhere the crumbs.

Step 5: Repeat the Breading Process (Optional):

For an extra crispy coating, you can repeat the egg and breadcrumb coating process. Dip the breaded onion rings back into the beaten eggs and roll them in breadcrumbs once more.

Step 6: Arrange in the Air Fryer Basket:

Lightly spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray to prevent sticking. Place the breaded onion rings in the basket in a single layer, ensuring they are not touching each other to ensure even cooking.

Step 7: Air Fry the Onion Rings:

Cook the onion rings in the Nuwave Air Fryer for approximately 8-10 minutes or until they turn golden brown and crispy. Cooking times may vary based on the size and thickness of the onion rings.

Step 8: Check for Doneness:

Halfway through the cooking time, flip the onion rings to ensure even browning. The onion rings are done when they are crispy and golden.

Step 9: Serve:

Once the onion rings are cooked and crispy, remove them from the air fryer basket and let them cool for a minute before serving. Serve them with your favorite dipping sauce, such as ketchup, aioli, or barbecue sauce.

Enjoy your homemade and crispy onion rings cooked in the Nuwave Air Fryer! Remember to follow the manufacturer’s instructions and guidelines for your specific model for the best results.
