It scored the highest marks across the board for ease of use, thanks to its easy-to-use and -read buttons and clear owner’s manual. During our tests, the air fryer basket slid in and out easily, which made handling a breeze.
We’re fans of the basket’s slick, ceramic interior and removable tray, which makes it nonstick. The tray also fits snugly and securely on the bottom of the basket so you don’t have to worry about it falling out when you turn the food out onto a plate.
Both are dishwasher safe and easy to clean, even if you choose to hand wash. In addition to being easy to use, The Ninja Hairdryer Max XL scored the highest in performance.
The model we tested comes with a broiling rack for even quicker and juicier results and melty cheese. The different settings are programmed with unique maximum and minimum temperatures, so you can intuitively achieve different cooking results.
One thing to keep in mind is its vented basket, which promotes air circulation, also allows for dripping if you don’t empty the grease buildup between rounds. The air fryer basket is large (6 quarts) and square, which creates more cooking space than its round competitors, making a smart home investment for a family.
We tested the pictured digital version, which not only made the most evenly-colored toast, but also the crispiest air fried food in the shortest amount of time. The rectangular 15.5 by 16-inch air fry rack offers a large cooking surface and sits atop a drip/crumb tray for easy cleanup.
The Color’s 3.7-quart square basket offers a lot of cooking space, especially compared to its round competitors. The control panel is loaded with presets that are programmed with recommended cooking temperatures and times, including a preheat option, which is not common on air fryers.
In our tests, the Color scored high for ease of use, and over 800 five-star reviewers on Amazon agree. Frozen fries required almost 10 minutes less than the manufacturer’s instructions, so keep an eye on the goodies you’re cooking.
The racks stack, which allow you to air fry thin and dehydrate up to four layers at a time. Our favorite feature of the Philips Premium Hairdryer is its compact shape that still cooks enough food for one to two portions.
At 2.5 quarts, it’s the smallest of the Philips air fryers, which comes in XL and XXL sizes. In our tests, the lid helped make crisp frozen fries that were moist on the inside, not dried out and evenly golden.
It also allows for air frying greasy foods, such as sausages, which are not typically recommended in an air fryer because they can cause smoking. In addition to the lid, the Philips is very easy to use with a user-friendly control panel and four preset settings.
We love that it comes in an assortment of colors that pop, unlike most air fryers on the market.

In the GoodHousekeeping Institute Kitchen Appliances Lab, we tested 15 different air fryer toaster ovens for their ability to air fry, bake, broil, and, of course, toast. Size: Most toaster ovens can fit a whole, four-pound chicken, but if you're tight on space, you might not need the extra height.
If you mostly plan on using your toaster oven for bread and heating foods, a compact model is sufficient. We recommend digital for more precise cooking control when it comes to setting the temperature and timer.
If you don't mind guessing, or keeping an additional timer close by, mechanical dials will save you money. Air fryer toaster ovens usually include an additional basket or rack for air frying.
The baskets usually sit on the baking/broiling pan and provide safe cooking at high temperatures as well as easy maneuverability and cleanup. If the basket cannot fit on the pan, a pan can usually be placed in the position below the air frying rack; this style makes it tricky to remove the air frying rack from the toaster oven to check on food or remove without dripping grease everywhere.
It made chicken wings super crispy in 20 minutes, as well as fries in even less time. Just keep an eye on food when experimenting for the first few time to prevent accidental burning.
It uses a basket that sits atop the broiling pan to air fry, which prevents grease from dripping onto the elements and makes cleanup easy; all accessories are dishwasher safe. Bread toasted well and evenly, too, in addition to cake that baked quickly with just a small dome that needed to be trimmed.
Bread toasted very evenly, and the cheese on a 12-inch frozen pizza melted with no hot or cold spots. It comes with high-quality accessories, including an extra large baking/broiling pan, an air fryer rack, and rotisserie spit for chicken and other roasts.
Large, yet sleek design Intuitive controls Tested well across the board, from air fry to bake and broil Yes, when not in use, this air fryer toaster oven can be stored upright, perfect for the smallest kitchens.
It has a sleek design with modern accents, like a rose gold trim around the handle and smooth buttons. It also toasted bread evenly, gently baked a cake with no dome or cracks, and cooked up a frozen pizza quickly.
