What air fryer accessories are available and how can they be used?
Silicone mat – a silicone mat is placed on top of the cooking surface to prevent food from sticking. It also helps with browning, crisping and searing. The best ones are made from non-stick material so that you don’t have to clean them as often. They come in different sizes and thicknesses, but the most common size is around 30 x 40cm (12″x16″).
Cooking rack – this is an optional accessory for your air fryer. A cooking rack allows you to cook multiple foods at once, without having to move the basket or place it directly on the heating element. This is useful if you want to cook more than one item at a time. You can choose between wire racks and mesh racks.
Baking tray – baking trays are great for making cakes, cookies, bread and other baked goods. They’re usually rectangular in shape and come in various sizes. Some models even include handles for easy lifting.
Bread pan – a bread pan is another optional accessory for your air fryer. It’s designed specifically for making bread, pizzas and other flatbreads. These pans have sloped surfaces which make it easier to remove the finished product.
Air fryer liners – these are thin plastic sheets that fit inside your air fryer basket. They help keep your food warm while keeping the oil temperature down. They’re removable and reusable so there’s no need to throw them away when they get dirty.
Cake tin – cake tins are ideal for making cakes, muffins and cupcakes. They come in many shapes and sizes, including square, round and heart-shaped.
