Get on TikTok. Search for air fryer and you'll have an abundance of recipes to follow made into short videos. I love TikTok for finding new ideas to try.

Put 'air fryer' into a you tube search and watch hundreds of videos to your heart's content.

Any freezer food cooks quicker!!

Very versatile and cooks most other things just google "How to cook X air fryer"

Makes great arancini from leftover risotto, also bhajias, pakoras, aloo tikki and little pasties. Roasted vegetables are great, as are tandoori chicken wings. Crispy bacon is fabulous.

Thanks everyone. I realise I could search on YouTube (don't do TikTok) but was hoping for tried and tested ones.
We did oven chips in it last night and they were lovely so will definitely do other freezer things.
Roasted veg is a great idea as it's something we love but we only have a small oven so if something is in there we wouldn't have room for veg too.

Not a recipe but a good tip.
But the air fryer lines, they are about £5 for 100 from Amazon. Saves lots of cleaning.

I've just got one too and have just made a successful chicken fried rice tonight.

2 bags of microwave rice
Couple of handfuls of frozen mixed veg
Packet of ready cooked chicken breast
Tablespoon sesame oil
Couple of glugs of soya sauce

Air fried for 6 minutes
Cracked 2 eggs in, air fried for 4 more.

Worked a treat!

Not very exciting but chicken legs are amazing in the air fryer. I rub a bit of oil on and Chinese 5 spice.

I use a silicon pot inside the basket for some things, straight in the DW after use & basket stays clean.
Try "air fryer silicone pot" on Amazon as they come in various sizes & shapes.
