Air fry a turkey in your Samsung oven

Air Frying the turkey on Samsung oven

Air frying is more popular than ever, and you may be wondering if you can use this method to roast your holiday turkey in your Samsung oven. The answer is yes! With an oven or range that has Air Fry mode, you'll be able to crisp up your turkey in just a few hours on Thanksgiving morning. Air Fry mode will also save you tons of time, giving you a chance to work on all your other delicious side dishes, such as green beans, stuffing, and pumpkin pie. 

Prepare your turkey and oven

Preparing your turkey for air frying is a little different from using other cooking methods, such as oven roasting. Read below for our air frying tips:

  • For an extra flavorful turkey, brine it in advance. There are wet or dry brining methods, so browse some recipes and decide which works best for you.

  • If you want to bake the stuffing inside the turkey, don't put the stuffing in the cavity until right before the bird goes in the oven. This will help avoid bacteria growth.

  • Check if your oven is large enough to accommodate your turkey. You can test this out by placing the turkey in your oven before cooking, or by checking the oven's dimensions and cubic feet in your user manual. You can also find your oven's cubic feet using the our website.

  • Do you have a turkey injector? Use it! If you don't, regular basting will help keep the turkey nice and juicy too. Be sure to save some of the drippings that collect in the pan to make a delicious gravy.

Cook your turkey with Air Fry mode

Note: Preheating your oven is not necessary when using Air Fry mode. To check if your oven has this feature, please consult your user manual.

To begin cooking your turkey, you’ll need an Air Fry tray. Some models come with one included, however some models include the Air Fry feature but sell the tray separately. You'll also need a baking sheet, which will catch any drippings from your turkey.

You should also calculate how long it will take to cook your turkey using this method: the estimated cook time is around 8-10 minutes per pound. So, a 20-pound turkey will take around 3 hours to cook using Air Fry mode.

  1. Place your turkey directly on the Air Fry tray, using rack position 3 (the third rack position from the bottom of the oven). If your turkey is very large, you can use a lower rack position.

    Note: For models with twin cooking, single oven mode is required for Air Fry mode.

  2. Place your baking sheet on the rack just below the Air Fry tray to catch the drippings. Feel free to use these to baste your bird while air frying. You can also save some drippings to make the perfect gravy for some mashed potatoes!

  3. Use the dial knob to select Air Fry mode, and then set the temperature. Air Fry mode supports temperatures between 350-500°F.

  4. If desired, set the oven to Cook Time so it stops at a specific time. Or, tap START and push the knob to begin cooking.

  5. Keep an eye on your turkey as it cooks. When cooking is complete, tap OFF. Carefully remove your turkey using oven mitts.

  6. When you’re finished enjoying your Thanksgiving meal, make sure to clean your Air Fry tray so it’s ready for more holiday cooking.
