Cookbook Review: “175 Best Air Fryer Recipes” by Camilla Saulsbury

Air-frying is a method of cooking that is healthier than traditional frying methods because it produces similar results with a lot less oil. With Camilla Saulsbury’s 175 Best Air Fryer Recipes, you can easily get started using an air-fryer a variety of fried foods with much less oil, as well as some other recipes you might not expect.

Summary of 175 Best Air Fryer Recipes

If you don’t the first thing about air frying, you’re in good hands with this book. It starts off with the basics: What air frying is, how to select and care for an air fryer and a guide to ingredients you’ll want in your pantry.

Then come the recipes, starting with the “Top 20 Fried Favorites” such as Classic French Fries, Onion Rings, and Buttermilk Fried Chicken. The rest of the book is organized much like other cookbooks:

  • Breakfast and Brunch
  • Appetizers and Snacks
  • Entrées
  • Vegetables and Sides
  • Desserts
  • Sauces, Dips and More

Because an air fryer is simple a self-contained convection oven, you can do a lot more than fry foods in it and Saulsbury gives you plenty of options, such as omelets, seafood, roasted vegetables, and even brownies.

What Worked for Me

175 Best Air Fryer Recipes is meant to be used. The recipes are well organized and in a larger font. The cover and pages are soft enough that most pages stay open, and the color photography, which is printed on thicker, less flexible paper, is kept to a minimum.

What I’d Love to See in the Second Edition

Not everyone can afford — or has the space for — an air fryer, but these recipes look so good. It would be nice to either have alternative methods for each recipe, or at least a section on how to translate the recipe to use a more traditional oven. Research showed me that getting the same results as an air fryer can be possible with other, more common kitchen appliances.


If you have — or are planning to get — an air fryer, this is an excellent cookbook to get you started. I’d be willing to bet that all the recipes you had in mind for your air fryer, are in here. And the book is easy to use, so beginners can use it effectively.
