If you think you love your air fryer now, wait until you try out some of my favorite air fryer accessories. After cooking for and writing two best selling air fryer cookbooks, I've used A TON of air fryer accessories. Let me share some of my favorites to make your time in the kitchen even easier.
Do I Need Air Fryer Accessories?
Whether you need air fryer accessories or not is entirely up to the user and what they intend on cooking. If you're just using it sparingly to make things like egg rolls, french fries, or to warm up pizza, the answer is likely no (although you will want to at least grab a pair of tongs or some silicone mitts to save your fingertips).
If you're a more advanced air fryer user, love trying new recipes, or want to give your oven or deep fryer a rest, you're going to want to pick up some of these air fryer accessories to take your air fryer experience to the next level.

Can I Use Aluminum Foil In The Air Fryer?
In a pinch, yes. You can fashion a small tray or inner basket out of aluminum foil. I've even been known to use some small pie plates or mini aluminum loaf pans in my air fryer.
A lot of other cooks I talk to like to use metal air fryer accessories when they're making some of my recipes.
I would recommend using silicone to use for cooking inside of the air fryer when possible. Metal and aluminum foil have a tendency to get hotter when cooking than silicone. Plus, it can cause your food to cook unevenly if you're cooking at an extremely high temperature or for a long period of time.

What Are The Best Foods To Cook In An Air Fryer?
The most common foods to make in the air fryer are frozen, prepackaged foods, as it reheats them very quickly and easily.
A lot of people prefer to use it as an alternative to deep frying for a healthier food choice.
If I were you, I would pick up a copy of one of my two air fryer cookbooks. This will give you some even healthier (and way more delicious) recipes to make in your air fryer with your new air fryer accessories.
