Air Fryer Apple Chips
The air fryer is the secret to the crispiest apple chips. Tossing the apple slices in cinnamon and nutmeg before frying them gives them warmly-spiced flavor (and makes the kitchen smell delicious).
Air Fryer Fried Chicken
This fried chicken is basically the number one reason that you should own an air fryer. It delivers on all the crispy, juicy flavors you’re craving.
Easy Air Fryer Donuts
When it comes to desserts, it doesn’t get much easier than these donuts. They have a super smart shortcut: Take canned biscuit dough, slice it into rounds, and cut the center out. Top them with a cinnamon-sugar mix or your favorite icing, and voilà!
Air Fryer Sweet Potato Chips
These golden savory chips are a favorite snack from the air fryer. Sweet potato slices get super crisp without much added oil and definitely without frying or roasting.
Air Fryer Steak
Air Fryer Steak
Air frying combines the ease of baking with all the deliciousness of pan-searing. The hot, circulating air quickly browns the outside of the steak, resulting in golden brown edges that mimic a hard sear.
Air Fryer Latkes
This super-simple air fryer latkes — made with grated potatoes, onion, matzo meal, and eggs — are just as crispy and delicious as traditional fried latkes.
Crispy Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts
All veggies in the air-fryer are so good — thanks to the super-hot circulating air, they’re sweeter, crunchier, and more flavorful than roasted vegetables — and Brussels sprouts are no exception.
Air Fryer Mini Calzones
These mini calzones use prepared pizza dough to make delicious pockets filled with cheese and pepperoni, though you can choose any filling you like.
Air Fryer Chicken Wings
These are some of the juiciest wings you’ll have outside of a restaurant. They’re also some of the crispiest — thanks to being cooked twice. Don’t forget the dipping sauce!
Air Fryer Pork Chops
Ready for super juicy but also tender-crisp pork chops? The air fryer is here for you. This recipe uses a shake-and-bake style coating and is a snap to cook and clean up — no pan frying required.
Air Fryer Churro Bites with Chocolate Dipping Sauce
Because the classically fried dessert is made with a pâte à choux batter that can either be baked or fried, it’s perfectly suited for the air-fryer.
Air Fryer Mozzarella Sticks
Never greasy and always satisfying, these mozzarella sticks actually start in the freezer, which helps keep the cheese from melting away in the air fryer.
Air Fryer Apple Cider Donuts
These super delicious cakey donuts are an Autumn New England treat — but you can enjoy them any time of year, and anywhere you are. All you need is a little apple cider, and some baking ingredients. One bite and you’re strolling through an orchard, picking apples!
Air Fryer Salmon and Brussels Sprouts
Thanks to the air fryer, you can leave the oven off and dig into tender, flaky salmon and super-crispy brussels sprouts in a fraction of the time.
