Get the best possible results from your air fryer and discover the best ways to use it (not just frying!) with 75 fast, convenient, great-tasting recipes.

Air fryers promise crisp fried food without actual deep frying. Was it too good to be believed? And what can you cook in them besides French fries? In truth, air fryers cook food by blasting it with circulated hot air. The method is fast, convenient, and can be surprisingly good—if you have the right recipe. We cooked more than 70 pounds of potatoes to create the perfect air fryer French fry, with an evenly crisp exterior and creamy center. But what really drew us to this appliance was the variety of what you can make in it, effortlessly and without having to enlist numerous pots and pans.

In addition to crispy fried chicken and fries, you’ll turn out evenly cooked steaks, such as Spice-Rubbed Steak with Snap Pea and Cucumber Salad (the spice rub gives them a bold crust), Sweet and Smoky Pork Tenderloin with Roasted Butternut Squash (the pork cooks directly on top of the squash to save time), and Tandoori Chicken Thighs. Many of the recipes yield both a main and a side for a complete meal. Most recipes take only 45 minutes or even less time, and all come with complete nutrition information.

Frozen foods cook up crisp in the air fryer, but the results are so much better when you start with homemade. So we offer freeze-it-yourself Chicken Nuggets, Southwestern Beef Hand Pies, and more that go straight from freezer to air fryer and cook to perfection. And we share plenty of kid-friendly meals and snacks, from Better-Than-Boxed Fish Sticks to Zucchini Fries.

ATK expertise on a hot trend: Home cooks are drawn to the promise of crisp-cooked fried and roasted foods using minimal oil, plus the appliance’s speed and convenience. But based on our surveying, consumers are unsure of what to make in them and are not happy with the existing recipes. We dispel the myths and show what to make and how to make it for tasty, convenient meals.

Kitchen-tested recipes: Recipes show the best foods to cook in an air fryer, how to properly cut and prepare foods to be sure they fit and cook evenly (without too much fuss), and time everything just right.

Takes convenience to the next level: When you’re popping a meal into the air fryer, dinner is all about convenience, so we started by ensuring that each recipe takes 45 minutes or even less from start to finish. From there, we found other ways to ensure ease: 2-in-1 recipes where main dish and sides cook together. Simple vegetable side dishes that cook in just a few minutes. And some recipes can go straight from the freezer to the air fryer.

Full Nutrition for Every Recipe: A big promise with air fryers is getting crispy results with minimal fat. So we made sure to include complete nutritional information for every recipe.

Discover the best air fryer to buy: We tested our way through brands that were easy and intuitive to use and models that were hard to clean, far too big, or downright frustrating to use. Find our winner and a full review in the front of the book.
