I love cooking in my Vortex Air Fryer.  Using the air fryer helps me get dinner on the table a lot faster.  I love the flexibility that comes with an air fryer.  While reviewing my favorite air fryers, I sat down and came up with a list of all my favorite accessories for you to help you get more use out of your Air Fryer.

When you get an Instant Vortex Plus air fryer the first thing you want to do is grab all of your small pans and see if ANY of them fit. If they do, then you are way ahead!

I got lucky and had a few that fit. The trick is, you need specific pans for cooking specific things. Like pizza, you need a shallow pan but that shallow pan won’t work for cakes and quiches. A few tools can greatly increase the number of things you can cook in your Vortex Air Fryer. You can buy the ones you need individually or there are great Air Fryer Accessory Kits available that can be more cost-effective if you need a lot of items.

Here are my must-have accessories for a Vortex Air Fryer!

Glass Pyrex Baking Dishes

Glass baking dishes work great in your air fryer.  They can help you bake casseroles or meals with wet ingredients. I use these to make my famous Seafood lasagna and my low carb Zucchini Lasagna!

  1. Hi, are you aware of any liners or silicon products to suit the Instant Vortex Mini. I am in Brisbane, Australia and can’t find any. Thanks.

    1. I have not looked at products specifically for the mini so I can’t say for sure Gil.

    1. Hi Melody, I would take a look at your air fryer manual but I imagine most accessories would be fine in your air fryer as long as they fit.

    1. Hi Katherine, I would check the measurements before you purchase to make sure they will fit well in your air fryer.
