When you want the comfort that only crispy French fries or southern-style chicken can bring, but really want to avoid all that bad-for-you fat, one of the best air fryers could be just the ticket. These countertop appliances let you cook up chicken nuggets, wings, mozzarella sticks, onion rings and more while using barely any oil in the process.
The Smart Wifi Air Fryer is the best air fryer for most people. It consistently browned and crisped everything from frozen crinkle cut fries to brussels sprouts. It also quickly and superbly roasted a chicken and broiled hamburgers with a lot less of the fuss and mess you get from a traditional oven. The Cosori has electronic controls with preset programs for commonly cooked foods. During cooking it stays cool enough to touch without risking a burn. The baskets are not only nonstick, they can be popped in the dishwasher. If you like technology, you’ll appreciate the ability to control this appliance and search for recipes from your mobile device or give it orders with a digital assistant.
We think The Air Fryer Toaster Oven is the best air fryer if you want the functionality of several appliances in one package. In addition to air frying, it can crisp up bagels, roast a 4-pound chicken, and bake a 12-inch pizza. There’s no preheat required which adds to the cooking time but saves you a step. As it cooks the Cuisinart is very quiet so it won’t prevent you from chatting in the kitchen or having a phone conversation.
