#6: Avalon Bay Digital Air Fryer 220SS
This air fryer is 3.7 Quart capacity, temperatures ranging from 180 to 400 Degrees, non-slip feet, 30-minute Digital timer, 1400 watts of power, non-BPA plastic and a detachable basket for easy food transfer. Plus, it includes a non-stick baking dish, multi-use rack, and a 52-page Avalon Bay cookbook for Air Fryers. Unfortunately, the included bake pan is significantly 6 inches in diameter and 1 inch high fries will get burn closest to heating and leaves those on the bottom of the basket raw.
#5: GoWISE USA GW22621
This air fryer has an adjustable temperature of 175°F – 400°F allows you to prepare a variety of food from crispy fries to juicy wings with little to no oil. It has touch screen accessibility to manually program cooking time, or select from 1 of 7 built-in smart programs: Chips, Meat, Chicken, Steak, Shrimp, and Fish. However, this fryer can burn the top and undercook the bottom of your french fries. Also, weight or grip is not enough to stay in place, it can slide across the counter when you reinsert the basket.
#4: T-fal ActiFry FZ7002
This air fryer can cook all your favorite fried food up to 2.2 lbs with only a tablespoon or less of oil with food capacity of 1kg. It has a unique paddle that rotates food while it cooks but it can mutilate and break apart fish sticks and breaded chicken fingers. Also, it lacks temperature control and its large size is unnecessary.
#3: Black+Decker HF110SBD Air Fryer
This air fryer is a budget-friendly model but has the smallest max-fill capacity among the fryers on our list. Its temperature control ranges from 175-400°F. Plus, its circulating hot air adds a crispy touch to your fried foods without drenching them in oil and the instruction manual includes tips on cooking times, temperatures, and quantities. However, it can cook only about one serving of food at a time.
#2: Philips HD9240/94 XL Airfryer
This air fryer has a digital touchscreen interface that lets you adjust the temperature up to 390 degrees. Also, it has a 60-minute timer with ready signal and auto shut-off. Unfortunately, the size is impractical and the included booklet guidelines are not reliable at all.
#1: Philips HD9641/96 Airfryer
This air fryer has the smallest footprint that measures approximately 14¼ by 10½ by 11 inches, length by width by height. This fryer can cook evenly brown fries by using a ½ tablespoon of oil but showing a dried-out texture. It features preset functions for french fries, chicken, fish, and chops. This is not quite a recommended fryer but still deserves to be on topof our list for the best air fryers you can buy.
