The Complete Air Fryer Cookbook by LInda Larsen

Released in July 2016



Forget any other air fryer cookbook. This is the book you need. I have an air fryer. I also hate it. I've tried making fries. They were limp. I tried making fried fish. It was lousy. I put it away after that.

The Complete Air Fryer Cookbook had me pulling it back out. A recipe for healthier scotch eggs caught my eye. I love scotch eggs. With the ingredients in hand, eggs boiled, and air fryer ready to go, I gave the recipe a shot. These were the greatest scotch eggs. They were crispy, moist, and delicious.

There's a good guide to get you started with an air fryer. I used the Power Air Fryer XL while testing these recipes. Recipes and information are divided into these categories:


  • Fast Food or Good Health
  • Breakfast
  • Lunch
  • Appetizers
  • Fish and Seafood
  • Poultry
  • Meat
  • Vegetables and Sides
  • Desserts


I had temperatures of 95 F at my house yesterday. The heat index reached 125 F. I was a little worried about using the air fryer, but it didn't heat up the kitchen at all. The oven would have. I liked the air fryer for that reason.

After making scotch eggs, I tried a few more recipes. Arancini worked wonders with some of the short-grain rice I'd cooked a few days ago and set aside for making California rolls this week. The Roasted Potato Salad was also great.

I'm not sure the air fryer will get constant use, but The Complete Air Fryer Cookbook has shown me that the machine is better than I thought. The recipes in the product guides were lousy. These are worth the cost of the book. It's a win. Thanks to Callisto Publisher's Club for pointing it out.
