How many frozen pot stickers can I air fry at once?

That really depends on the size of your air fryer. Whether you are cooking 2 pot stickers or 12 pot stickers, the cook time will stay the same. However, as with most air fried items, it is best to have the pot stickers spaced apart. They can touch but they won’t get quite as crispy.

Can I stack pot stickers in an air fryer?

No. You want your pot stickers in an even layer. Plan to flip them once while cooking.
