My Favorite Air Fryer Recipes
These crispy wings are coated in a sauce of mustard and cowboy butter for loads of flavor.
(You could also use our cowboy butter dipping sauce).
I adore using my air fryer to make baked potatoes. They always turn out with crisp skin and fluffy potato inside. So good!
The hot air circulation in the air fryer ensures even cooking and locks in the flavor, resulting in a perfectly cooked steak every time.
Homemade Air Fryer Chicken Tenders
While I'm not above using frozen chicken in a pinch, I love making my own tenders when I have the time.
Serve them up with spicy ketchup, honey mustard, or even our avocado ranch dressing.
Frequently Asked Questions
An air fryer is a countertop cooking appliance that isn't actually a fryer. It's a small convection oven that circulates hot air to cook food.
Because there is less oil (and sometimes none at all) involved in air frying, it is a healthier option than deep frying.
In general, air fryers need less time to cook food than a regular oven. It is also more economical as air fryers use less energy than a large oven.
While French fries and other typically deep-fried foods like chicken nuggets, empanadas, mozzarella sticks, or even a blooming onion, you can also cook things like bacon, chicken breast, salmon, burgers, and more!

I have experience with two different air fryer models.
The Hamilton Beach Air Fryer is a small appliance with a basket big enough for 3-4 large baked potatoes. It's simple to use (my kids love it) and doesn't take up much space on the counter.
Our new air fryer is the Cosori Air Fryer Toaster Oven. I like the larger size because you can fit a lot more food in it. My husband's favorite feature is that you can cook a whole chicken rotisserie-style on a spit. (recipe coming soon!)
Air Fryer Cooking Tips
- For best results, don't over crowd the food in the air fryer basket or tray, make sure it's in a single layer so the air can circulate all around it.
- Do not use cooking sprays. I recommend using a small olive oil sprayer bottle to add oil when needed.
- About half way through, flip food so ensure even cooking.
- Check the internal temperature of meats with a digital thermometer. (I like this inexpensive meat thermometer).
- Some home cooks may find these air fryer accessories helpful.
- Select the highest print quality under your printer settings.
- Check that the printer is not running low on ink.
- This handy reference sheet may use a lot of ink so take care removing it from the printer so as not to smudge it.
Printer Recommendation: I have used Canon printers for many years, and now have a Pixma model that I love. It is simple to use and produces good quality.
