There are many brands of air fryers on the market. These are what we love best about these air fryers.
This air fryer has the biggest capacity: Hanabishi
When it comes to air fryers, the biggest complaint might be the size. While it may be a small kitchen appliance, there is such a thing as too small. Most times, the basket is too small to comfortably fit a whole chicken. The hot air may evenly cook the chicken but the top is usually too close to the heating rod that it burns faster than the rest of it.
This Hanabishi air fryer solves that problem by introducing this combo appliance. It’s an air fryer that doubles and looks like an oven. It even has an air-fryer basket that allows excess oil and other liquids to drip onto the drip tray below. Plus, besides air frying, it can also boil, bake, toast, convection broil, and convection bake, too. No more wondering how to turn a recipe into an air fryer recipe!

This air fryer is easy to operate: Imarflex Turbo Fryer
There’s no need for appliances to be too complicated. Cooking can be complicated enough for reluctant cooks. That’s why this Imarflex air fryer doesn’t have any of the bells and whistles that might make other air fryers more attractive. Just a good old-fashioned dial for the temperature and another for the timer to make cooking with this new age appliance as easy as can be. A Power light indicates it’s plugged in and the Heat light tells you when it’s heating up and getting ready to cook.

This air fryer comes in a standout color: Kyowa
Sometimes it’s hard to choose which appliance is the best one for you. The choices may all have the same features and all cost around the same price. The one feature that may tilt your favor toward one instead of the other air fryer can be either of these but sometimes, looks do have the advantage. When all the other choices are plain black or white, this standout red Kyowa air fryer is the stunner that you want in your kitchen. It does everything else all the other air fryers do while looking like it’s the runway model of the barkada.

This air fryer will safely turn itself off automatically: Midea
Most air fryers are simple to use. There is a timer that acts as the On button, a temperature control, and a basket that is easy to pull out and push back in. Easy-to-use is a great feature. However, what the other air fryers may not have is an automatic shut-off response when you pull out the basket. This Midea air fryer will automatically turn off when the basket is pulled out. That’s a great safety feature since hot air can become superheated.

This air fryer slides to cook food at the right temperature: Tefal
When it comes to cooking at the right temperature, the temperature control of many air fryers is simple enough to understand. What’s hard to understand is knowing at what temperature you should be cooking at. How hot should you be cooking a chicken? What is temperature should you set it for frozen French fries and chicken nuggets?
While many air fryers have a handy table to tell you the right temperature, this Tefal air fryer gives you a sliding bar instead of a dial. All you have to do is slide the bar under the picture of the food you’re cooking and it’s set at the right temperature for it to cook it right.

This air fryer has gone digital: Philips
When all the other air fryers continue to feature the simple dial, the Philips air fryer goes digital. Gone is the analog and inaccurate dials that may or may not be heating up to the right temperature you need for the time that it needs to cook. By going digital and having a computerized panel, this air fryer assures you that it’s cooking at 180 degrees C for exactly 25 minutes exactly.
