How Long to Cook a Hot Pocket
It can take as little as a couple of minutes or as long as a half-hour to cook a Hot Pocket, depending on how you choose to cook it. The microwave is certainly faster, but if you have time to spare, an oven or air fryer will produce a crisper exterior.
In The Microwave
To cook one Hot Pocket in the microwave, put it into its crisping sleeve and pop it in for 2 minutes. If you're making two Hot Pockets at once, let them cook for 4 minutes.
In the Air Fryer
Preheat your air fryer to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and then put in your Hot Pocket without the sleeve and let it cook for 11 to 13 minutes.
In a Convection Oven
Preheat your convection oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, then put in your Hot Pockets without the sleeve for 12 to 15 minutes. For the best results, thaw them before baking them.
In a Traditional Oven
Set your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, put your Hot Pocket on a baking sheet, and cook it for 28 minutes.
