No matter your experience with an air fryer, there are a number of accessories which are must-haves for beginners and experienced users alike. These general Air Fryer Accessories are: 

Air Fryer Tongs: Everyone needs a good pair of tongs, however, these air fryer tongs have a silicone end rather than a metal end, meaning you won’t scratch your air fryer. 

Oven Mitts: There is nothing worse than buying your hands when trying to handle a hot tray or draw, these silicone air fryer oven bits are perfect to use, won’t make or damage your air fryer and most of all, they will prevent you from burning your hands. Stop using a tea towel. 

Food Thermometer: If you want to make extra sure that your food it at the right temperature, then get yourself a food thermometer. I would suggest using a digital one, as that will give you an accurate reading of the internal temperature of your food. 

Silicone Baking Cups: If you’re making egg muffins or cupcakes, one of the best pieces of equipment that I can advise you to get is silicone cupcake/muffin cases. They can be re-used and always make your muffins and cakes turn out lovely (unless you overcook them). 

Silicone Pots: These pots make perfect servicing sizes for sizes for meals or even the main part of the meal itself. Whether you’re air frying potato gratin or cooking a chicken breast in a sauce, these pots are perfect. The fact that they are silicone means they are reusable, sturdy and well worth it. 

Air Fryer Cleaning Brush: As I’ve mentioned previously, you want to make sure that your air fryer is cleaned after every use, as you want it to be kept in the best condition that it can be. The air fryer brush will allow you to clean the racks and parts of the air fryer that are a little tricky, with ease with this cleaning brush. 

Air Fryer Storage Container: No matter what you make your air fryer, there is always a need for food containers. Whether that is the raw ingredients or the cooked final recipe, food containers are a must for every air fryer owner. 

Air Fryer Stand: The stand will allow you to stack food in your air fryer, allowing you to cook more in your air fryer. If you’re cooking fish, sausages or nuggets and chips, a rack will mean you can cook enough for the whole family, without the need for any more space.

Air Fryer Lid Holder: Depending upon which air fryer you have, if you have one that has a detachable lid, then you need this lid holder. This will keep the lid out of the way, means you won’t injure yourself and helps keep the kitchen all tidy. 

Air Fryer Basket Organiser: This basket will give you the perfect chips and french fries every single time. This basket will give enough space for the heat to get around the fries to cook them all evenly and give them that perfect crispness that we will know and love. 

Here are some additional tips for using Ninja Foodi accessories:

  • Read the instructions that come with each accessory carefully. This will help you to use it safely and effectively.
  • Clean the accessories after each use. This will help prevent food and grease build-up, making them difficult to clean later. Always keep on top of cleaning the air fryer and accessories. 
  • Store the accessories in a safe place when they are not in use. This will help to prevent them from getting lost or damaged.

With a little care and attention, your Ninja Foodi accessories will last for many years.
