Let’s Talk About My Favorite Air Fryers and Accessories
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.
The Air Fryers and Accessories listed here are ones that I’ve tried so far, but more come out everyday.
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.
How Big Should My Air Fryer Be?
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.
Since I started cooking in the Air Fryer the number of brands and models have exploded. I couldn’t even count the number I saw at the International Housewares Show this year.
Many of these are made by the same manufacturer, but done with private label branding.
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.
At the International Housewares show there were dozens of this style in smaller sizes. I think these will be showing up on Amazon and in stores soon.
My Latest Recommendations Over At Amazon
You can find many other air fryers on Amazon and the number keeps growing!
You Can Bake in Your Air Fryer?
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.
There are many collections of air fryer accessories you can get on Amazon, but the one above is from Go Wise and has a rack for toast and that’s why I just ordered it.
If you don’t want a whole set, here’s an air fryer baking pan with handle that’s sold by its self.
Air Fry Without All the Mess!
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.
You Do Need a Sprayer Accessory for Your Air Fryer
One more thing you need is a refillable spray bottle for oil, or aquafaba if you’re oil-free.
