  • Step 9

    Select AIR FRY, set the temperature to 360°F, and set the time to 3 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin. 

  • Step 10

    Once the unit is preheated, spray the crisper plate with cooking spray. Working in batches, place the  frozen waffles into the basket. Do not stack them. Spray the waffles with cooking oil.

  • Step 11

    Select AIR FRY, set the temperature to 360°F, and set the time to 6 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin. 

  • Step 12
