It is good to know that mushrooms that have an opening under the cap, will have a deeper flavor, while mushrooms with closed caps will be more delicate. And white mushrooms in general have a milder flavor.
How to store and keep mushrooms fresh?

When you are ready to cook your mushrooms, rinse them lightly under the sprayer of your faucet. Gently dry with a towel.

How to make air fryer marinated mushrooms?
Mushrooms have their own savory flavor but they do take on some of the flavors they are cooked with. Marinating them in the same sauce that steak is marinated in with give them a really deep flavor and compliment the beef.
Mix the worchestire and soy sauces, sugar, oil, vinegar and spices. Slice the washed mushrooms into thirds or quarters, depending on how large they are. Put mushrooms into a bowl or plastic bag and pour marinade over and leave for about 30 minutes.
Preheat air fryer @375°F. Air fry the mushrooms for approximately 10-15 minutes. Check the mushrooms at about halfway, stir to allow even cooking. They will be done when the mushrooms are browned and tender.
