Your air fryer can do anything, right? It'll do even more with these clever accessories

Six different air fryer accessories, including a pizza pan, egg bites mold, cake pan, skewer rack, metal lifting rack, and a silicone tray.
These accessories will make your air fryer even more useful!

Air fryers are the latest hot kitchen craze, and I have to admit, I’ve given into the madness as well. I’ve had my Instant Vortex Plus for months now, and I absolutely love it. It crisps food wonderfully and it’s a lot more efficient than my oven! It’s a lot easier to clean, too.

And yet, there are ways to make your air fryer even more wondrous, with a few ingenious accessories, especially if you plan on using it daily or if you plan on using it as an oven replacement. That’s an especially great idea in the summer, as an air fryer won’t heat up your whole house like a regular oven will!

So here are a few of my — and soon to be your — favorite air-fryer accessories.

COSORI

Cosori Air Fryer Accessories, Set of 6

$32 at Amazon

Get more-i from your Cosori with this accessorizing array.

If you want to outfit yourself in one fell swoop, this is the perfect bundle or you. It includes a pizza pan, a skewer rack (and skewers), a cake pan, a silicone mat, a metal rack for elevating pans and a seven-cup egg bites mold (which you can also use to make muffins!). Cosori sells these accessories in two different sizes — for their 3.7-quart and 5.8-quart models — but they'll likely work with similar-sized models of any brand.

"I love the accessories!" said one five-star review. "Great to use the rack when you have an overflow of what you are making (like chicken or burgers) in the basket. You have to figure a way to get it in there with food in the bottom, but it will work. I saw other reviews that said these accessories are too small but they are not.... Highly recommend!"

katbite

Katbite 8.5 Inch Heavy-Duty Air Fryer Parchment Paper, 200 pcs.

$9 $14 at Amazon

If you hate cleaning up your air fryer (and who doesn't?), you’ll love these parchment paper liners!

If you use your air fryer every day, you’ll want to minimize cleanup as much as possible. That’s why I think these pre-cut parchment paper liners are a great idea. They come in a variety of different sizes to fit the air fryer of your choice, plus they’re made out of an extra thick paper, so they won’t fly around like regular parchment. On top of making it easier to clean your air fryer, the parchment paper also makes it easier to slide food out of the basket.

A happy shopper claimed it's even improved their air fryer's performance: "Have used it several times already, and the baked potatoes, fries, veggies, etc. seem to come out even crisper — not to mention the cleanup is as easy as taking it from the air fryer and into the trash. LOVE THESE!! And at this price point, even better!"

WAVELU

Wavelu Air Fryer Silicone Pot liner

$20 at Amazon

Silicone beats paper for those who'd like a forever-reusable option.

Want to protect some trees along with your air fryer? This silicone tray is an eco-friendlier alternative. Not to mention that its raised lines allow for increased air circulation and even heat distribution. And of course you can just pop this in your dishwasher for easy cleanup!

One shopper said this is worth every penny. "I am a huge lover of air fryer. I use this for my meat, fish, chicken, sweet potatoes, dessert, etc. Since I use the machine on a daily basis, I wanted to get something that I could put inside of the air fryer's bottom so I don’t have to clean every single day. Guess what? This product is legit, and the best!"

Instant Pot

Instant Vortex Official Grill and Lifting Rack with Skewers, 6-Piece, Stainless Steel

Instant Pot
$18 $22 at Amazon

Searing and skewering have never been easier (and charcoal-free) with this handy grill.

This pop-in grill/rack comes with five stainless steel skewers for making homemade kebabs, plus it elevates foods while cooking. It's stainless steel — tough enough to last a lifetime with proper use and care. Plus, the rack itself is perfect for roasting chicken in your air fryer, as it allows for crisp skin all the way around. It fits in the Instant Vortex, but should work with with similar-sized fryers as well!

"This fryer accessory together with the shish kebab handles is just another perfect accessory that will be used a lot," said a five-star review. "Tested it right after it arrived and am very pleased with all it's functions. Used it for lamb, and it came out great. Super item."

Instant Pot

Instant Vortex Official Nonstick Grill Pan, 2-Piece, Gray

Instant Pot
$25 at Amazon

Roast away...and keep those delish drippings and/or yucky fat right where you want them.

This two-piece set features a perforated pan plus a solid tray underneath to catch any fat or drippings. Not only is this nonstick, but it’s dishwasher-safe too, making cleanup a breeze.

One Amazon shopper said it's the best air fryer pan: "OMG, is this pan the best I've ever used. It's sturdy, solid, and very easy to clean. In using it in the air fryer I decided to cook sausages on it, and the top part with the vent openings helped drain all with the oil drippings. It cooked the sausage crispy on the outside, and done on the inside."
