When you're getting used to a new appliance, a cookbook is a great place to start. There are plenty of air fryer cookbooks on the market that offer inspiration, tips and tricks, and that teach you things about your air fryer you may have never known otherwise. "The Super Easy Air Fryer Cookbook" by Brandi Crawford includes 100 recipes for "healthier fried favorites,” from cinnamon sugar donut holes to chicken and waffles.
Yes, you can make pizza, bread and even cake in your air fryer — with the right accessories. This five-piece air fryer accessory set comes with mini cake and pizza pans, a skewer rack for kebabs and more. (Note: Each piece measures a maximum of 7 inches in diameter, so make sure your air fryer has the right dimensions for this set.)
Who doesn’t love a mini pizza? These 9-inch aluminum pizza pans will help you make perfectly sized personal pies in your air fryer. The aluminum material conducts heat evenly and efficiently, according to the brand, while the perforations are designed to let the bottom of your crust get nice and crisp.
These 7-inch serving tongs are essential for placing things in and taking things out of your air fryer with ease (no oven mitt needed). They’re compact and have a convenient locking system for easy storage.
Consider reusable, non-stick silicone liners to protect your air fryer and prevent food from sticking to the bottom. They’re easier to wash than the air fryer itself (read: dishwasher safe!), they won’t affect the taste of your food and they're designed to heat evenly. These liners are round and 9 inches in diameter, but they also come in a square version.
If you’re looking for air fryer liners that make clean-up a breeze, consider these bamboo steamer ones. They’re waterproof and anti-stick to protect your air fryer from food residue. When you’re finished air frying, simply toss them.

Thinly sliced vegetables made in the air fryer are a game-changing way to get your veggies in. This mandoline slicer has five sharp, interchangeable blades for all different kinds of slicing techniques for fruits, vegetables, potatoes and more. The thinner, the crispier.
Air fryer brands often tout that the gadget allows you to make healthier versions of fried foods without all of the oil used when deep frying, but most still recommend using a small amount of oil for best results. This aerosol-free sprayer holds your cooking oil of choice (olive, canola, avocado, coconut, etc.) and sprays in a fan-shaped mist. It’s a great tool for giving vegetables or potatoes a light, even coating before throwing them in the air fryer.
We can all agree that there’s just something about grill marks on salmon or chicken. Add these pans to your collection for that fresh-off-the-grill taste (and look) straight from your air fryer.

There’s nothing wrong with using a cheat sheet every so often. These magnetic tables include air fryer cook times and temperatures for vegetables, frozen foods, seafood, chicken and more. Stick them to the side of your air fryer so you can quickly reference them instead of searching for answers on your phone.
For those of us who can never be too safe with cooking meat, this digital meat thermometer is the gadget you need. The long probe will keep you from burning your hand, and it folds away for convenient storing.
These ramekins are oven safe up to 482 degrees, and they're also dishwasher and freezer-safe — making it super easy to take your air fryer game up a notch. Use them to bake egg bites, mini apple crumble, lava cakes, perfectly circular cookies and more.
