When you want the comfort that only crispy French fries or Nashville-style chicken, but really want to avoid all that bad-for-you fat, air fryers are perfect. In one of these nifty countertop appliances you can cook up chicken nuggets, wings, mozzarella sticks, onion rings and more while using barely any oil in the process.
An air fryer is unlike a traditional deep fryer, where food is submerged in a hot tub of oil. Rather it’s like a souped-up convection oven with a fan to circulate hot air around the food to crisp it up as it bakes.
Not only do you avoid adding excess fat to your diet, you don’t have to lug home gallons of oil, preheat it slowly, and then worry about disposing of all that hot grease after you’ve finished cooking. However, it has a fairly small capacity of around 3 quarts, so when you're cooking for a crowd, you'll have to fry up your food in batches.
If you're looking for a larger capacity, the Nowise USA Digital Hairdryer comes in sizes ranging from 5 to 7 quarts. Unlike many air fryers, the Cuisinart is not oddly shaped but rather looks like a large stainless steel cube.
It competes well with the Philips for top-notch air frying results but costs a lot less. Anyone who is looking for a really versatile appliance, should consider the Ninja Food, which not only air fries but pressure and slow cooks, dehydrates, sautés and more--and does it all well.
While it only holds about 2 ½ pounds of food, it doesn’t take up much countertop space relative to other air fryers. Just shy of $200, the TurboS tar Digital is not the cheapest option, but you can depend on it to give excellent results and consistently turn out food that tastes like it came out of a deep fat fryer.
Keep in mind however, that it only has a capacity of 3 pounds of food so you could just about fry a whole small chicken cut in pieces at once. The unit is relatively compact and unlike many big and bulky models, will easily fit under standard cabinets when it’s not being used.
Type: Digital | Size: 13.5 × 12.5 × 11.5 inches | Capacity: 5.8 quarts | Dishwasher-Safe Parts: No | Easy to Clean: Yes | App Control: No / Recipes-book included | Amazon Rating: 4.0 out of 5 With eight preprogrammed settings for a variety of foods, a wide temperature range and an affordable price, the Nowise 8-in-1 Digital Hairdryer is our top budget pick.
In addition to being an air fryer, it’s a convection toaster oven so it can be used to crisp up bagels, roast a 4-pound chicken, bake a 12-inch pizza and broil hamburgers. Unlike most other air fryers, it’s not made of plastic and shaped like a space capsule or giant egg.
Type: Digital | Size: 13.6 × 11 × 13.3 inches | Capacity: 4 quarts | Dishwasher Safe Parts: Yes | Easy to Clean: Yes | App Control: No / Recipes and book included | Amazon Rating: 4.8 out of 5 And rightly so, according to the pro testers, who claim it rivals the Philips for frying up crispy potatoes and chicken nuggets.
Type: Digital | Size: 14.2 × 16.8 × 13.1 inches | Capacity: 6.5 quarts | Dishwasher Safe Parts: Yes | Easy to Clean: Yes | App Control: No / Recipes and book included | Amazon Rating: 4.6 out of 5 Let’s face it, kitchen appliances can totally dominate your countertop, leaving you with little valuable prep space.
You can even combine them so for example, you can pressure-cook a whole chicken, and then switch to the air fryer lid to crisp and brown the skin, while keeping the inside nice and moist. And this odd-shaped machine is heavy so you’ll want to plan on clearing space for it and not lifting it in and out of a cabinet on a regular basis.
Krupp Fry Delight (Image credit: Krupp) Type: Analog | Size: 16.5 × 13.6 × 13.5 inches | Capacity: 2.6 quarts | Dishwasher Safe Parts: Yes | Easy to Clean: Yes | App Control: No / Recipes-book included | Amazon Rating: 3.5 out of 5 The Krupp Fry Delight is the lowest-rated air fryer on our list but its performance and compact size makes it a good alternative to some of the more expensive models here, particularly if you have a small family or limited countertop space.
Customer reviews on Amazon praise the Krupp for producing crunchy and great-tasting food in small quantities. But a number of critical reviews complained that the handle fell off their units after a relatively short period of use.
Those machines that cook enough for a whole family tend to be large and oddly shaped so will eat up some space on your countertop and aren’t easy to take in and out of a cabinet or closet. Typically, the best ones come with a relatively steep price, but they are likely to come with digital temperature settings for precise control.
Don’t forget to check how much room you have from the counter surface to under your cabinets if you want to be able to move the fryer out of the way when you’re not air frying. While digital controls can take a little more work to figure out, they are exact and allow for special settings for various types of food so you don’t have to guesstimate what temperature to use and how long to cook.
This gives you more versatility and means you’ll have fewer products taking up space in your kitchen. However, it also adds to the price of the air fryer so be realistic about whether you also need, let’s say a toaster oven or a pressure cooker.
Today we are asking the million dollar question for many Americans….what air fryers are made in America? When you live in a country, you often like the idea of supporting your local workforce.
So let’s ask Google what air fryers are made in America? Interestingly, two relevant results show up. There is an Amazon page labelled ‘ air fryer made in USA and a video titled ‘5 Best Air Fryers Made in USA 2020’.
Let’s find out for ourselves. My first port of call would be the Nowise USA website, surely this is the best place for reliable information on the brand. After a bit of searching, I came across the ‘FAQ’ or frequently asked questions section of the website.
Good on Nowise USA to be the only ones so far that are clear about this on their website……. I suppose they do have USA in their name though soyet again I had to scour the question section of the Instant Pot Vortex’s Amazon listing. Again their website didn’t bring up any useful information, so I found myself on the Amazon listings page, and the question and answer section (again!!).
And yes, several customers confirmed that their Ninja was made in China. I am starting to lose all hope…. Are you? On to Inn sky, a rather obscure air fryer brand. This will be fun Their website was the worst yet, with very little useful information and a guy fixing a washing machine on the warranty page….even though they only sell air fryers….call me confused.
Maybe I am wrong Well, this time both the official website and the question and answer section of Amazon didn’t have much information, just one guy saying he thought it would be made in China because of the price.M Moreresearch is needed then! Actually, all I can find out is that they have their headquarters in Los Angeles and the President is Bobby Djavaheri.
You might find some premium coffee makers and the like made in America, but air fryers are not really in the same league. Unless air fryer manufacturers come up with a good reason to take on that extra cost, they are always going to use the cheaper option.
