The oven or the toaster oven is the best method to use when reheating churros.

While it generally is difficult to reheat fried foods, the oven does a good job of getting the churro to taste almost the same as when it was freshly made.


  1. Preheat the oven to 300-400 degrees Fahrenheit or 204 degrees Celsius.
  2. Place the churros on a baking sheet or tray, ensure that they are spread out evenly.

5.  Air Fryer

The air fryer is another good option to consider when reheating deep fried foods like churros.

While it won’t be the same as when it was freshly made, the end result will have it tasting pretty close.


  1. Preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 177 degrees Celsius.

2. Microwave

” Can the microwave can be used to reheat churros?” is one of the common questions people ask.

While the microwave is pretty effective at reheating different types of food, it honestly does not a good job with churros.

When you use the microwave to reheat fried foods, it will get it them warmed up, but the crisp exterior will often come out very soggy and mushy.

If you are just looking to warm up the churros, then the microwave can be used, but please be aware that it won’t have that crispy exterior that you have come to know.


  1. Place a paper towel on a microwave-safe plate.
  2. Use another paper towel to cover the churro, then place it on the plate.
  3. Microwave for 10 seconds and see if it is warmed up to your liking, if not, microwave in 5 second increments till reheated.
  4. Remove, allow to cool and then serve.
