Our Top 8 Air Fryer Accessories Every Home Cook Needs
Look out, Gordon Ramsay. There’s a new chef in town.
1. Juvale 4-Piece Set Silicone Pot Basket with Handles, Brush, & Tongs
This silicone basket for air fryers ($14.99, Target) is a great alternative to foil or parchment paper. It helps you save money, time, resources, and stress from cooking.
The 4-piece set includes one 6.3 x 2-inch silicone air fryer basket and one 5.25 x 0.5-inch removable silicone air fryer liner to give you more than sufficient space to cook different kinds of food. Plus, the set comes with an oil brush and food tongs.
The silicone liner and basket are versatile and can be used to fry food or filter oil, while the tongs and oil brush will definitely come in handy when you need to flip your food or slap on a thin layer of oil for extra crispiness. Also, this air fryer accessory is so easy to clean: simply wash the air fryer silicone liner and basket with soap and water and let them dry. Because of the material, gunk and crumbs will slide right off. Bonus!

2. 50-Piece Air Fryer Disposable Paper Liners with Holes on-Stick Parchment Papers
These air fryer liners ($16.29, Bed Bath & Beyond) are made of 100% pure food grade material with double-sided silicone oil. They’re constructed of safe, nonstick, oil-proof, and waterproof material that can withstand up to 428 degrees Fahrenheit.
Similarly, the liners are designed so you don’t have to bend, cut, fold, or tear them when in use. Simply put them in when you’re ready to cook and dispose them after use. This takes away the need to clean the air fryer after cooking. Who has time for dirty dishes? (Not I.)
The multifunction paper liners can be used for air fryers, cookers, microwaves, ovens, and steamers. When used with air fryers, you can conveniently bake, fry, or roast any food that you like. BRB. Gonna go put these in my cart.
3. Oil Sprayer for Cooking
One of the best things about air fryers is that you need little to no oil when cooking. If you do want to add a touch, this oil sprayer ($7.69, Amazon) will be your best friend.
With a rotary nozzle and nonslip push handle, you can control how much oil you spray into your air fryer basket, allowing you to be much more precise than if you were to just pour it straight from the bottle.
It also uses food-grade glass material with high-temperature resistance, so it won’t shatter even if it falls on the counter. The clear dispenser shows you how much oil is left, and because it’s clear, you won’t mix it up with other liquids you might cook with, like soy sauce. How unfortunate that would be.
4. Air Fryer Master Cheat Sheet
Not sure how long you have to cook your food in the air fryer? These magnetic cooking time cheat sheets ($9.99, Amazon) take the guesswork out of cooking. Each sheet shows the cooking time, temperature, and size of food for easier referencing.
These cheat sheets feature over 100 common foods — from beef and chicken to frozen foods and vegetables. They’re conveniently classified and labeled, with reasonable-sized fonts so you can read them at a glance even if you’re mid-cooking.
The cheat sheets for air fryers are made of durable materials, making them waterproof and oilproof. They have a magnetic backing so you can easily stick them to your fridge or any other magnetic surface. They also come with double-sided, heat-resistant tape so you can stick them onto your appliances if needed.
5. Digital Meat Thermometer
Perfectly cooked meals used to be difficult to achieve. Have you ever cooked a piece of meat that was flawless on the outside but raw on the inside? No? Just me? Anyway.
No more! This digital meat thermometer ($12.99, Amazon) takes temperatures in as quick as three seconds to ensure your food is neither undercooked nor overcooked.
This digital thermometer features a large LED screen, clearly displaying the temperature when you’re cooking chicken, steak, fish, turkey, you name it. Whether you’re cooking in the kitchen or outdoors in the dark, you can conveniently see the figures on the thermometer screen.
Beyond meat, the Kizen kitchen thermometer also works well with baking bread, candy making, and heating up your oil.
6. 10-Piece Cord Organizer for Appliances
Looking to make your kitchen tidier and safer? These 10-piece cord organizers ($12.59 with 10% off coupon, Amazon) can help. Simply put the cord organizer stick-on on any appliance and then wrap the cord around it to keep it organized and tangle-free.
With an all-new design, these cord organizers are more durable so they won’t crack after several uses. They also come with a bigger adhesive area so they’re sturdier and easier to use.
The cord organizer can work with multiple appliances, from air fryers, blenders, and coffee makers to juicers, microwave ovens, and rice cookers.
7. Air Fryer Recipe Card Collection
Running out of air fryer recipe ideas to prepare for yourself or your home? Worry no more!

8. 2-Pack Air Fryer Silicone Pots
If you want to save money on parchment paper or replace your air fryer basket, these air fryer pots ($15.29, Amazon) are the answer.
These are perfect for 3-quart to 5-quart air fryers, and they can also be used as accessories in microwaves, ovens, or pressure cookers.
These pots use premium BPA-free, food-grade silicone that can handle up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. They won’t deform or damage, so you can reuse them as many times as you want. Plus, they help to reduce the amount of residue that can form in an air fryer so you can enjoy healthy and delicious foods without the added gunk and grease.
Air fryers have the power to turn the most ill-equipped chef (hi, me) into someone that might sort of, kind of, possibly, maybe, potentially be a half-decent cook. And with these accessories, you can use your air fryer like even more of a pro. From brushes, pots, and tongs to liners, parchment paper, and recipe cards, you can cook a range of dishes with this highly valuable kitchen gadget.
Now, get to frying.
