Sharing is caring!

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.

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.

3. Air Fryer Liners– I love these parchment liners. Some foods, especially those with a flour or breadcrumb coating, are known to stick to the bottom of the Air Fryer. I’ve never had that problem when using these liners and they make clean up so much easier.  The liners are also good for when you are cooking items that could stick or slide through the racks while baking, like cookies. Just remember to put the food on the liners before you turn on the Air Fryer. If not, your liner will fly around and possibly get caught in the heating element and burn.

4. Calibrated Instant Read Thermometer– This goes without saying, you’ll aways want to cook your foods, especially meats, to the right temperature. Investing in a good quality quick read thermometer is key to cooking perfect foods in the Air Fryer. The best quick read thermoeter on the market is the Thermapen 4k hands down. It comes with a 2 year warranty and is an investment that is worth every penny. The thermometer can read a temperature in less than 2 seconds flat.

I’m able to get my Air Fryer Steaks perfect by checking the temperature with my Thermapen 4k quick read thermometer.

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.

Having just begun to research the purchase and use of an air fryer, I believe Tanya's site will prove invaluable to me with its plethora of information.

My neighbor's fryer came with a little short basket, mine came with a basket on the rotisserie rod. I like to have the basket that just sets on a shelf.

Are you kidding? You are recommending a thermometer that cost more than the air fryer??!!! And I have had mine for over a year, using it almost every day, with no problem so it's not a cheap one.

@Patty, I second Tanya's "No I'm not kidding"...Thermapen is the best out there,...it just is. Mine is probably 13-15 years old and still going strong. These are professional thermometers that are extremely accurate and outlast inferior thermometers. (I've owned plenty of those duds before Themapen) I have given many Thermapens for gifts to many who didn't know about them. Each and every one of the recipients have fallen in love. Hope you have many years of longevity with yours, but if it fails, endulge yourself with the best. For me, it's worth paying the extra price for a thermometer that is going to give me years of accurate performance, instantly.

I'm not kidding you. I love my Thermoworks thermometer and I use it for more than just the air fryer, my husband uses it for grilling, and he's left it outside...in the rain, and it still works great lol. Which thermometer do you use? I'm sure there are many fine ones on the market.
