How can you tell when air-fryer mozzarella sticks are done?

How long can you freeze air-fryer mozzarella sticks?
It’s best to eat these mozzarella sticks fresh and hot, but they also last 1-2 days in a sealed bag or container in the fridge. Simply toss them back into the air fryer for a few minutes to reheat.
