There are many sizes and types of air fryers, so you want to look carefully at the descriptions to make sure you’re getting the right accessories for your air fryer.

There are so many air fryers to choose from and more are coming on the market everyday. I’m going to talk about a few that I’ve tried out so far, but know that these are not your only choices. I recommend to keep your eye out for the Amazon warehouse deals on air fryers. They are most used, returns, or refurbished models, but they are a bargain.
My first air fryer was a 3.7 quart Go Wise and I’m still using it to this day! It’s a great size for a 2 person household. I sent my friend a larger Go Wise model that’s 5.8 quarts, it’s a great size for 4. I just got myself a Red Go Wise 5.8 quart air fryer and it’s even bigger than the Phillips extra large.
Phillips models are usually more expensive but they have a few perks that I like a lot. They don’t measure by quarts though, but by pounds of food.
The white Phillips model above (HD9641/56) holds 1.8 pounds and is good for 1 or 2 people. If you want to cook a large quantity of fries, you’ll need to cook them in multiple batches.
Please note that if you get this model from Williams Sonoma it has a removable top screen that is great for cooking kale chips and other light foods that can fly up and burn on the upper heat element.
The Phillips that I have are all digital, but you can get older models with dials in all sizes cheaper. I would just warm you to not pay more for these older models. In some stores they cost the same as better models.
There are also a few combination convection toaster oven and air fryer like the Breville model above that Chef AJ swears by. I have the Cuisinart model myself and love that you can cook even more food at one time in them.
You can find many other air fryers on Amazon and the number keeps growing!
Once you have your air fryer you’ll quickly find yourself want to bake in it. It is a convection oven after all! Don’t forget that you probably have some ramekins or mini baking dishes in your cabinet that you can use. Also tea cups work great too if they are oven-safe.
The size of your air fryer will determine what size ramekins you get. I get a ton at thrift stores and even sell some in my Etsy store when I find extras.
If you don’t want a whole set, here’s an air fryer baking pan with handle that’s sold by its self.
While I’m not keen on those plastic slow cooker liners, I love these parchment liners for air fryers. It makes clean up a breeze and is great to use with battered foods.
One more thing you need is a refillable spray bottle for oil, or aquafaba if you’re oil-free.
