Cut small slits. Add little slices to the top of each hotdog to prevent them from splitting while cooking.
Single layer. Only cook them in a single layer, do not stack them or they will not cook thoroughly.
Read your instructions. Some air fryers will require you to use cooking spray when you are using them, others don’t so be sure to check the specific directions for yours.
