However, if they are made of plastic, avoid using them in an air fryer, as plastics usually are not good at handling air fryers’ hot temperatures.

As a precautionary measure, always check if there is a sign beneath your ramekin for an “oven-safe” symbol.

It is also recommended that you use aluminum foil or some kind of tray below the ramekins. This can prevent any sort of batter from overflowing and falling on the air fryer tray. This is especially helpful if you are using it to make cakes or souffle.
