Tips & tricks: How to ripen avocados using an air fryer

An Australian woman has proved how versatile an air fryer can be, using it to help turn a hard avocado into a ripe one. On the Facebook page Air Fryer Recipes Australia, she explained how the trick took just 10 minutes.

“Air fryers, is there anything they can’t do?!” she wrote in the post. “Tonight we had tacos for dinner and I couldn’t find a ripe avo for the guacamole. I’d heard you can ripen them in the oven so I googled it and did it in the air fryer instead.”

She said that while the fruit wasn’t “super hard” it was still too hard to mash and admitted that the taste and texture had changed “a bit”.

“I’d recommend that you let it cool in the fridge before using, but it bloody works!” she continued. “I’d always rather a normal ripe avocado, but this works in a pinch.”

As reported on, she confirmed that the flesh of the avocado stayed a “normal green colour” and didn’t go brown inside after being cooked in the air fryer.
