Very in-depth book I was very impressed with the information and recipes. If you are interested in or own an air fryer oven I highly recommend this book. Very informative and well written.

The first line in the description of this book is misleading - it makes it sounds like these are recipes that can be made in an air fryer. No. The whole book is recipes specifically for an air fryer OVEN, which is a completely different countertop appliance. The book has info on how to use this. Recipes are in chapters on Breakfast & Brunch, Snacks & Appetizers, Vegetarian, Beef & Pork, Chicken & Turkey, Fish & Seafood, Vegetable Sides, Desserts, and Pantry. The recipes sound good, and I'm sure the book would be useful if you had the proper appliance, but I just have a normal air fryer and requested this book thinking the recipes would work in that.

I absolutely love our air fryer and use it almost daily. This book included various simple recipes to help someone get the most out of their appliance. Although it did relate to a specific brand of air fryer and not all may have some of the options most of the principles can be utilised on many devices. It includes an array of chapters and covers most bases. The recipes are easy to navigate and contain simple ingredients. 
Nutritional value is included at the bottom of each recipe which I find a vital addition that not many books include. The book is well presented with appealing photography. 
Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for the ARC in return for an honest review.

The market is saturated with Air Fryer books and so when I see a new title it better be packed with mind blowing recipes and easy. For me, this book missed the mark, for me pereonally. The air fryer recipes I gravitate toward are things like Bulgogi and scallops, smaller things that fit into a basket.The recipes in this book seem like theyre made for a full size oven. Dont get me wrong the recipes are lovely, I just dont see myself making them with my air fryer. For that reason, I gave the book 3 stars. 

Thank you to Netgalley and publishers for this free e-arc in exchange for my honest opinion.

The Utimate Air Fryer Oven Cookbook is a machine tutorial guide with recipes developed and written by Coco Morante. Due out 12th Oct 2021 from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt on their Mariner imprint, it's 304 pages and will be available in paperback format. 

I'm a real fan of new kitchen gadgets and machines, but many of them get bought and never used, at least in my family. Of the "new" kitchen machines in the last decade, the two that get used almost daily in my kitchen are my Instant Pot pressure cooker followed closely by my air fryer oven. I had some trouble in the beginning finding appropriate tested recipes which suited my air fryer oven. This compendium not only collects together a plethora of tasty and family-friendly home cooked recipes, but it also contains a primer for utilizing the Instant Pot air fryer oven that is better and much more comprehensive than the scanty instructions in the manual which came with my machine. 

As stated, the intro/primer on use is comprehensive and very well written. The recipes themselves are grouped into chapters thematically: breakfast & brunch, snacks & appetizers, vegetarian, beef & pork, chicken & turkey, fish & seafood, vegetable sides, desserts, and pantry staples/partial ingredients. Recipes contain a title, yields, and description, ingredients in a bullet list sidebar, followed by step-by-step directions. Ingredients are given with American standard measures only. Tips and alternative presentations are given in a text box in the recipe. Special labels such as gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian are highlighted in a header in the recipe. Nutritional information is given and includes calories, fat, carbs, fiber, and protein. Ingredients will be easy to find at any moderately well stocked grocery store. 

Roughly 1/4 of the recipes include a color photograph. I am a very visual cook and would have benefited from more comprehensive photos, but I know that photos and layout increase the cost of book projects very quickly. The photos which were included were attractively and professionally styled and serving suggestions were appealing. 

The author has included a general chart with cooking times and temps (including temps in Celsius and Fahrenheit) for a number of different items, from asparagus to whitefish as well as an index. 

Four stars. There's a lot to like here. 

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.

This is an excellent beginner to escort book on the basics of an air fryer, equipment needed, basic techniques, then breaking into recipes. I highly recommend to all who are new to air fryers. My only criticism is it does d focus on over specific air fryer company, yet the basics are applicable everywhere.

I love to be in the kitchen and I have all of the kitchen gadgets to prove it! I haven't utilized my little air fryer I have too much, but I just upgraded to an air fryer oven because it is definitely more versatile and I anticipate it will get a lot of use so I wanted a book with tons of recipes to get me started on the right foot. The Ultimate Air Fryer Oven Cookbook has a great introduction explaining the difference between and air fryer and an air fryer oven, and how to use it, and then it is filled with chapters of great recipes. I love that in addition to air frying, you can also dehydrate food, and even make rotisserie items. This is a great book for anyone interested in or getting started with an air fryer oven.

I just got a new air fryer, and now I am trying to learn new skills with this kitchen appliance. This cookbook gave me such a great starting foundation of good recipes to try in my air fryer. If you are new to air fryers or an air fryer super fan, then you will LOVE this one! Thank you to NetGalley and Mariner Books (formerly HMH Books) for a copy of this book for an honest review.

I have been wanting to use my air fryer more, so when I had the opportunity to see this book I got excited. The book has an introduction part which included cleaning tips and how to convert oven recipes, which I thought was great. When it comes to the recipes, I was left disappointed since not all of them include pictures. Some recipes do have many ingredients and I do tend to shy away from those; however, those are not the majority in this book. Overall, even though it does have a variety of recipes, it is not a book I will be using too much.

This cookbook gives comprehensive instruction and recipes for the Omni Air Fryer Oven. Air Fryer Ovens are different than your regular Air Fryer as they have both top and bottom heating elements. The Air Fryer Oven referenced in this cookbook is the 18-26 -liter sizes The recipes will work in either size. 
This cookbook has so much great information on how to use the Omni Air Fryer Oven and, how to use the different options on the machine in addition to the recipes. Such as the dehydrator, slow cooker, rotisserie, etc. each option on the Omni Air Fryer Oven is covered. 
The cookbook also includes tips on what tools to use. Author Coco Morante then goes over sample questions you may have and provides the answers. 
It is more than a cookbook! This book gives you valuable information on air fryer oven cooking.
The author has 100 recipes with tips on how to adapt to another oven or adapt your oven recipes to the Air Fryer Oven, with quantity and cooking time changes noted. 
Starting with your first meal of the day to the very last she has recipes.  Coco also includes vegetarian recipes and how to adapt all of the recipes for Gluten-free needs, even Dairy-Free variations. The nutritional information is also included for each recipe. Many recipes also include ingredient changes for adding variety.
Delicious recipes for breakfast/brunch, snacks and appetizers, meats and poultry, and desserts are covered that Coco created. Each recipe has detailed instructions that are easy to follow. 
I am a picky eater and found many of the recipes very good. My testament to a recipe is if I make it a second time. The ones I tried I'll make again! There are ones I plan to try yet that sound very good. 
In the back, she has a pantry section that gives you recipes for sauces, rubs, and seasoning mixes, bread crumbs and more. This is a section that will be used over and over. There is also a time, temperature, and rack position, chart for fresh or frozen foods. 
I learned so much from this cookbook and even though I don't have that type of Air Fryer Oven I could adapt the recipes I tried to use in my Air Fryer. They were flavorful and not complicated. I will use the book as a reference over and over and I plan to try more recipes in the future. 
I do recommend this cookbook and I thank NetGalley, Coco Morante, and the publishers HMH for allowing me to read and review this ARC. This is my honest opinion. I gave it 4 stars not 5 because it is so specific to the one Air Fryer Oven you do have to use your judgement when adapting to a regular air fryer but with so much other valuable tips and recipes it's well worth getting.

I had very few things that I would cook with our airfryer and still I mainly use it to just reheat things here and there. This opens up a whole new world of recipes to try with an airfryer and if you are like me and have a hard time figuring out the uses of an airfryer then pick up this book and get all you can out of your airfryer!

Fantastic formatting and photos. Love the way the recipes are presented and I am eager to try out more of the recipes. There are some in here that has never occurred to airfry so I'm excited to try it out! Recommend for all air frying beginners and advanced chefs alike!

Great book with accessible ingredients and manageable recipes :) We've had an air fryer for years, but I know a lot of people have recently got their first. Sometimes they're great for frying chips/fries and nuggets, but sometimes you want a little more in it! This book gives you that :)

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley... I can not give this book a fair review as I have an air fryer dual (2 drawers) and not an air fryer oven, so there were many recipes in this book that I was not able to try... That said, the recipes that I did try were early to make and delicious...my daughter made the blueberry scones and we all loved them.  The pictures in the book all looked great, and I wished I could have tried a few more of the recipes...I do prefer recipe books that have pictures with every recipe, but this one actually had quite a few pictures, which was appreciated...I would recommend this to anyone with an air fryer oven...

Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for sending me an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review!

I have a hard time with cookbooks. More often than not, I find one or two recipes I love while the others are either too "gourmet" or full of food I can't stand. This one does a great job of having several recipes I really enjoyed. I haven't made everything in this cookbook, but the things I have made have all been good. This is also an Instant Brands book, which means that if you have an Instant Brand Air Fryer, it will make it that much easier. I have tried the Scotch Eggs, which are fantastic, as well as the baked oatmeal. The recipes that include the rotisserie helped a lot, as I struggled using it with just the owners manual. I would definitely recommend this for air fryer owners, new and old alike!
