1 teaspoon of butter and a pinch of salt is all that's needed.

Using an Air Fryer is a ridiculously easy way to roast buttery corn on the cob and get it perfect every time. The corn cobs need to be cut in half to fit in the air fryer, but this is also how they are often sold (in the UK).

The Tefal ActiFry AL806040 Air Fryer is still my favourite cooking tool. It's so ugly it needs to be stored in the conservatory but it's still brought into use a couple of times a week. It is also a must-have for the motorhome!

Chef's notes

The start photograph shown 1 tablespoon of butter, but that was far too much. A teaspoonful is all that's needed. Any more just gets left in the air fryer when the food is removed.
