Air Fryers are amazing kithcen devices and there is so much you can do with them. I bet you’re wondering which accessories for your Air Fryer are worth it and which ones aren’t really useful. I’ve got you covered with this list of Air Fryer Accesories that are worth your money.

- An Air Fryer Accessory Kit – Rather than buying accessories piece by piece, this kit has a ton of pieces in one package to get you started. There are a ton of kits like these on Amazon to choose from. Just make sure you check out the specs to ensure that the pieces will fit the size of your Air Fryer. I also use some of the pieces in my Instant Pot Pressure Cooker and my Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker with Air Crisp.
2. A Spray Bottle for Oil – I love love love my spray bottle. I bought this bright blue spray bottle a while ago and it works wonders, although it’s been hard to find lately. However, the Evo brand spray bottles work just as well. Most commercial sprays aren’t good for your Air Fryer. Overtime, these can fade the protective coating on most Air Fryer baskets. I recommend investing in a good quality spray bottle for spritzing your food. Great thing is, you can use the spray bottle for other kitchen cooking. I use it for spritzing my regular pans when I am cooking on the stove.
5. Grill Tray Attachment – Some Air Fryers brands come with a grill tray attachment (Phillips and GoWise have one). Rather than placing the whole basket in the Air Fryer, you can place food on the grill attachment. Admittedly, I first thought this was useless…but it’s the best thing ever when cooking steaks, burgers, and fish. It’s also easier to clean than the basket and makes food flipping easier. Check out my Air Fryer Steak Kebab or Air Fryer Meatloaf recipes to see it in action.
If buying, make sure you are purchasing the right grill tray that matches your Air Fryer brand.
6. Heat Resistant Tongs – Most food cooked in the Air Fryer will need to be flipped halfway through. Having a set of quality tongs is helpful. I like to use plastic ones that are heat resistant to avoid scratching the surface of my Air Fryer basket.
7. Pie Weight Chain – Since the Air Fryer has a strong fan that circulates air within the device, some smaller lightweight items are known to fly around. A great suggestion given to me by one of my readers is to invest in pie chain to hold the smaller items down in the Air Fryer. It’s pretty genuis. You can see that tip and other helpful ones on this 10 Air Fryer Tips Post.
8. A Good Air Fryer Cookbook –I love having a good quality cookbook that I can use with my appliances. Here’s two cookbooks that I think are great for new owners to have, Air Fry Everything by The Blue Jean Chef and The Super Easy Air Fryer Cookbook: Crave-Worthy Recipes for Healthier Fried Favorites by Brandi Crawford. Both books have a ton of great recipes for trying with your Air Fryer.
9. Platinum 4x More Dawn Dish Soap – If you’re like me and cook a lot of meats in your Air Fryer, the grease can be a nightmare to get off. I like to soak mine in this strong Dawn to get the grease to come right off.
10. An Air Fryer Cooking Chart – A handy reference chart is helpful when figuring out cooktimes. This is great for when deciding how long to cook certain meats and vegetables in your Air Fryer. The fact that it’s magnetic is another plus.
