An air fryer is at the top of everyone's list of must-have kitchen gadgets at the moment — and for good reason: It can quickly crisp up veggies, bake banana bread and help you meal prep a week's worth of eggs. We even tested a bunch to find our very favorites. (Psst! If you're not in the market for a whole new appliance, check out the Instant Pot Air Fryer Lid we tested, too.) In order to make the most of the air fryer you already own (or the one you're purchasing soon), you might want to add a few more items to your cart. We've rounded up some accessories that make an air fryer even more worth the investment.

This article has been reviewed since its original publish date for accuracy, pricing and availability. We stand by our list of top air fryer accessory picks and are hopeful that the Food Network Reversible Air Fryer Rack, which was sold out at the time of review, will restock soon.

If you want to grill, sear, roast or fry in a larger air fryer, you'll want to add this grill pan to your accessories list. Make sure you pick one that fits your model!

Items coming out of the air fryer can be very hot to the touch, so make sure you have a set of tongs on-hand to pull out loose foods like chicken nuggets or other accessories including a cake pan or silicone mold. A nylon or silcone head on your tongs is important here to avoid scratching up your fryer's interior or cooking accessory.

If you're using your air fryer to turn sliced veggies like zucchini or potatoes into chips, you'll want to add a mandoline to your kitchen cabinets. This tool, which should be used with a glove since the blade can be very sharp, can produce uniform slices of vegetables, so you can count on evenly cooked chips every time.

You don't need oil to cook your food in an air fryer, but a little spritz can make your food crispier. You can also give your air fryer basket, cake pan or any other accessories a quick spritz before cooking to prevent food from sticking.
