    1. That’s great to hear, thanks for letting us know it worked out well, we love those tenders! Cook them many times each month 🙂

      1. I figured out a simple way to test mine today. I filled a mug with water and left to come to room temperature for about 2-3 hours. I then tested the Harbor thermometer in the water and found it matched the ambient temperature in the room within 0.5 degrees. Seemed spot on to be honest. I tried a couple more times in the day, when the ambient temperature varied and the thermometer kept up.

        I don’t know how rigorously scientific this is, but it makes sense in my mind. With that in mind, it sounds like you might have got a lemon John? A 20 degree variance is pretty big!

  1. Just made these in the air fryer you recommended … they came out great! I’d probably increase the time another minute or two, as they were barely crispy at all — but that’s probably personal preference. Thanks for these pages; a vegetarian life saver!

    1. Glad this helped Martin and thanks for your feedback! I agree they won’t hurt to cook a little longer at all. We just got happily accustomed to the texture at eight mins 🙂 I can for sure see how they’d need to cook longer for more crisp. I actually do that when I cook them at the same time as the Alexia Sweet Potato Fries 🙂

  2. Might be a silly question.. But my Ninja air fryer has an air fry and roast setting.. Which would be best for these Gardein tenders? Does it matter?

    1. I’ve not used the Ninja Alex, but my guess would be that the roast setting disables the circulating fan, and the air fryer uses the fan. Essentially an air fryer is a small oven with high speed fan to circulate the air. Toe roast option probably results in a less crisp finish with the fan off. This is my best guess only I am afraid.
