    1. A set of magnetic air fryer cheat sheets for ensuring your foods emerge perfectly cooked instead of still raw or burned to a crisp because you guesstimated the cook time.

    Promising review: "So glad that I came across these very handy sheets. I love having this information handy and easy to use. The magnetic sheets are strong and stay in place well, even with the fridge door opening and closing a lot. It's handy having them right in view for quick reference. It helps us to use the air fryer more, as it's easy to glance over and time things correctly. I like that it is a dark color so it doesn't get messy as easily, and it has all the things we are most likely to use the air fryer for. The envelope the magnetic sheets come in is cute and would make a nice gift, perhaps in a basket or bag of related items. Happy to have these!" —Small~Town~Girl

    Get them from Amazon for $11.45 (also available in white).

    2. A set of reusable liners because they're less wasteful than single-use paper liners. Not only will they make cleanup a breeze, but they'll also protect the coating on your air fryer basket from chipping since you're not abrasively scraping it with a spatula trying to unglue your food that's stuck to the bottom.

    Promising review: "These silicone mats are a game changer (and you all know not to use non-stick spray on your AF, right? It takes the coating off). Food doesn't stick (not even that ooey, gooey cheese that melts off slices of pizza) and cleaning is a snap. I just pop it in my dishwasher and voila! If you have an air fryer, get these mats!" —Karen G. Pedercini

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in two sizes).

    3. A silicone egg bite mold so you can enjoy easy-to-eat egg bites for breakfast or as a snack. You can also use the mold to make ice cubes, chocolate treats, mini cheesecakes, cake pops, brownie bites, muffins, pancake bites, and more.

    Promising review: "Great tool for air fryer. I have used several times for making egg bites and love it. Makes nice size cups, larger than appears. Works great for muffins too. Dishwasher clean in a snap!" —Frequent Flyer

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful collection on Amazon for $9.99.

    4. An air fryer accessories set if you want to use your new appliance to its fullest extent. This set works for a variety of air fryer brands and sizes, and can help you whip up mind-blowingly delicious cakes, pizzas, french fries, onion rings, roasted veggies, baked goods, breakfast foods, and even crispy kabobs. 

    The set

    It comes with one cake pan, one pizza pan, one metal holder, one multipurpose rack with five skewers, one silicone mat, and one egg bites mold with a lid.

    Promising review: "Just all around what I needed. These gadgets are great and they totally come in handy with my air fryer!! Thanks for making such great products and for helping to make my life so much easier!" —Sharnalei

    Get a six-piece set from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in two sizes).

    5. An oil sprayer to guarantee your air fried foods emerge from the basket looking so crispy and delicious that you could start a food ASMR TikTok.

    Promising review: "I bought this to spray oil on foods to go in my air fryer. It works great for that with a fine mist spraying out. So far I've used it for coking fried fish, fries, baked potatoes, and okra. Would recommend." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    6. A pair of silicone oven mitts that'll protect your fingies and are less bulky than traditional oven mitts so you can securely grab the hot air fryer basket. 

    Promising review: "We recently got a new air fryer/toaster/oven combo and MAN does that thing really heat up. Since it’s not incredibly big, our big oven mitts were a bit cumbersome to use. We’re really happy with this purchase. The mitts fit perfectly on the handle of the air fryer so no need to find a new spot to store. They are easy to slip on when food is done, and perfectly protect your hands from the heat. Note: I wouldn’t use these for a full oven.. they don’t seem like they would protect your hands in that scenario (not thick enough) but that’s not what we purchased them for." —Michelle K

    Get it from Amazon for $3.99+ (available in six colors).

    7. A silicone pot for cooks who want the reusability of a silicone liner as well as the support of high walls to keep their food contained. Plus you can easily remove it from the air fryer thanks to its easy-to-grab handles.

    Promising review: "My wife and I enjoy cooking with our air fryer even more now with this air fryer pot. Before using this silicone pot it was a hassle to clean all the oil from the air fryer after each cooking. But this pot made all the difference. No more mess inside the air fryer! Also, It allowed all the oils to drain to the edge of the pot making foods more crispy and less oil. This one is a major go!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in two sizes).

    8. A nonstick grill pan because sear marks are 100% achievable — even in an air fryer. Reviewers especially like it for cooking meats because the vent openings allow grease and excess oil to escape so your sausage and burgers are perfectly crispy instead of soggy.

    Promising review: "If you have an air fryer get this; it will save you a lot in frustration trying to clean the bottom of your fryer. This sits perfectly in the bottom of mine and once cool, cleaning it is easy. I got tired of the frustration in disassembly of my fryer so this item here has saved me." —M. Hammerstrom

    Get it from Amazon for $20.39.

    9. An instant read thermometer so you don't cut into your golden brown roast bird only to find that you're actually about to have chicken sashimi for dinner.

    Promising review: "I like everything about this product. It is very easy to use and the first digital thermometer I have purchased that has given me an accurate reading. I have used it to check the temperature of food cooked in my air fryer and a steak I recently cooked. I am happy with this product and would recommend it to all." —Carol A. Christensen 

    Get it from Amazon for $13.97.

    10. An air fryer cookbook if you got an air fryer because all your friends were getting air fryers and you didn't want to feel left out. It's time to test drive your new baby with some mouthwatering recipes that are perfect for beginners (and pros!) alike.

    11. A trio of tongs to flip and scoop whatever is cooking in your air fryer. The nice part about getting three is that you don't have to worry about cross-contamination if you touch raw meat with one of them. Just grab a clean one!

    Promising review: "These tongs are the perfect addition to my kitchen. They are sturdy and well made. I love the locking mechanism so that stored away in a kitchen drawer they take up less space. The red tongs are beautiful in color and match my kitchen decor. I have managed without tongs for many years, but now with an air fryer tongs became a must. And I made the right choice with these. Love them!" —Oregana

    Get them from Amazon for $15.99 (available in three color combos).

    12. A set of silicone baking cups that'll be kinder to Mother Nature when you're baking in your air fryer. These reusable liners don't need grease and rinse clean in the dishwasher.

    Promising review: "Perfect for using in my air fryer (Chefman brand)! I was afraid of the silicone melting on the rack inside the air fryer but they held up perfectly. I baked cupcakes using these silicone cupcake liners; my cupcakes had even baking and made it so easy for me to frost my cupcakes with how thick the material is, making it easy to hold while decorating my treats. Love the bright colors and they add a nice, small touch of color to my kitchen shelf." —Beth K

    Get 12 from Amazon for $8.30.

    13. And a pack of silicone donut pans for treating the family to homemade bagels, donuts, and mini cakes. You can also use 'em to mold soap, jello, ice cubes, candies, and more.

    Promising review: "I bought these so that I could make donuts with my new air fryer and they're perfect. Easy to clean — just turn them inside out to get into the nooks and crannies. Nothing sticks to them. I did find I needed to lightly spray them in order to get the dough to go in evenly. The donuts were the perfect size for a little treat." —Jessie

    Get 24 from Amazon for $9.99.

    14. A nonstick baking pan because you want a single serving of baked mac 'n' cheese without having to wait for your clunky old oven to preheat.

    Promising review: "I must say I'm extremely satisfied. My air fryer only had a basket. I was surprised that Amazon had an air fryer baking pan. I ordered this particular air fryer baking dish and cooked macaroni and cheese. This is a great dish for two servings. My next recipe will be a mini cake." —K DREAMS

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95.

    15. A set of two mini loaf pans so you can blow everyone's mind by telling them, "That tea loaf you're eating...yeah...I made it in my air fryer."

    One empty pan and one pan with a cake loaf in it

    Promising review: "I use these in both my Instant Pot and my Instant Pot air fryer. I have made little corn bread loaves along with cake and single serving meat loaf. They work anywhere and I use them in my regular oven. I sometimes give these little loaves to neighbors and they love them. No need to cut slices of a large loaf or cake so more sanitary as gifts." —DMAdam47

    Get them from Amazon for $6.41.

    16. A 7-inch deep dish pan if you can't quite get the thickness right for regular oven-baked pizza. This pan is compatible with a variety of air fryers and pressure cookers and is tall enough for quiches, fruit tarts, deep dish pizza, cheesecake, and more.

    Promising review: "Bought them to make pizza in my air fryer. It worked great. I need more practice on the pizza but both were good. Pans are easy to clean with no sticking of the pizza was easy to remove." —Gary

    Get it from Amazon for $9.59+ (also available in silver).

    17. A set of two air fryer racks to help you fit more food in your air fryer at once. (Two tiers of chicken nuggies coming right up!)

    Promising review: "We bought this as an accessory for our Ninja AF 100 Air Fryer which we love. The skewers were great for cooking a couple of Italian sausages. They crisped up all around and cooked faster than just laying it on the crisper plate. Easy to clean up. We recommend this item. The only con is that one can only fit about three sausages on the rack when using the skewers. Not a deal breaker just an FYI overall great and fast delivery too using Prime." —JM Orton

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    18. A mandoline that'll slice your vegetables into whatever shape and thickness you desire. Homemade pickle chips? Done! Sweet potato fries? Easy! Roasted carrots? You're just scratching the surface! On a more serious note: The blade is very sharp so be careful. You may also want to invest in some cut-resistant gloves

    Five blade attachments showing the different kinds of cuts you can achieve with the mandoline

    Promising review: "We recently purchased an air fryer and wanted to make our own french fries. After several attempts cutting the potatoes I couldn't get a consistent size. With the julienne feature and the adjustable thickness it worked perfectly. Love the holder for all the different sizes and my young son loves the wavy pattern. Definitely recommend." —Scott M Evans

    Get it from Amazon for $29.97.

    19. An air fryer cover for protecting your precious bb when it's not in use...which isn't often but you'll still be glad to have this.
