The Best Air Fryer Review

We review the best air fryers on the market and bring you this guide so that you can make an informed decision on whether you should buy an air fryer and if so, which one is the best for you.

Why should you buy an air fryer?

Well first of all, what is an air fryer? An air fryer is a kitchen appliance that cooks your food with hot air rather than oil. This is particularly interesting if like me, you love chips!
Each of the models reviewed here will us a single table spoon of oil, or less, to cook up to 1.5 Kg of delicious freshly cut chips. The health benefits are obvious.

80% less fat

best selling airfryer80% less fat at a minimum! Not only that, the little oil you use is fresh and not recycled as is often the case with conventional fryers.
There is little doubt that eating too many chips prepared in the traditional way is a health hazard but now with the new air fryers you can eat healthy and mouth watering chips guilt free!

Another added bonus is that it is far safer than the oil fryers, no more boiling oil in the kitchen!

So should you buy one? If you eat chips, YES! You should.

Our favourite!
Easy to use, easy to clean, fast, maybe a little noisy. One more advantage over others: the food separator. Only 800g of chips though!Easy to use, easy to clean but it is also on the slow side. It doesn't have the capacity of the Actifry Family or the speed or the AirFryer.Easy to use, easy to clean.

OUR RECOMMENDATIONS: If you want to feed 2/3 people the Philips AirFryer is a great option.

If you are cooking 3 or more people you will need the The Philips AirFryer XL or the Tefal Actifry Family. Both models are very good, easy to use, safe and make great tasting chips but the XL is faster and that’s why it gets our No1 vote.


Here are 3 products that will supercharge your AirFryer and greatly enhance its usability! With these trays and grills you will be able to cook a wide range of foods and make the most of your appliance.

Air Fryer, the Healthy Frying Option

Hot Air Fryer, the Healthy Frying Option written by: angelinajones

oil less fried chips that make you smile inside and out!As more people are getting concerned about health and the increasing threat of calories and cholesterol, it is becoming clear to many people that food that is low in calorie and low fat is good for the body. Deep fried food tastes great, but the long-term effect they leave on the body is definitely bad. Fast food groups use the same cooking oil to fry batch after batch of munchies, making the oil unfit for consumption, and most people eat those junk without realizing how much damage it can do to the body because it tastes good. The fact that deep fried food tastes good is true, but it is definitely not healthy. So what can be done to reduce the amount of oil in the food, but at the same time, not compromise the flavors of the dish cooked as well?
This is where an Airfryer steps in. Many people are still unaware of this wonder product, which actually has helped countless people eat healthy and tasty food every day. Air fryer, the healthy frying option, cooks food in hot air rather than oil, so that food tastes just as good but has way less calories and cholesterol than deep fried food.

With exceptional new technologies, jets of hot air bursts inside the hot air fryer and cooks the food. It is a fascinating procedure, and it results in food fried in little or no oil whatsoever. That makes this product perfect for the times when one needs to reduce the calorie count of a particular dish while not compromising on the taste of it.

Apart from cooking in virtually no oil, another very big benefit of using an hot air fryer, the healthy frying option, is the reduced usage of fuel. Generally, Airfryers consume a low amount of electric while cooking, and it has precise instructions that say clearly how the procedure reduces the usage of cooking gas or other forms of fuel which helps in cooking food barring electricity. When it comes to electricity, even the usage of that is significantly lower than cooking in oil.
Air fryers are definitely easy to clean up. They can be cleaned with minimum effort, and storing them is no major hardship. There are control knobs which can adjust both the time as well as the temperature. So, if you want to cook something for 5 minutes at 200 degree centigrade, then these knobs can be used to adjust the same.
Most Airfryers are now able to grill, roast, bake and fry at the same time, and grilling food, rather than frying it, is good for the health. With Airfryer, grilling, frying and baking becomes very easy, and new experiments about recipes can be made. The design of the Airfryer has been made that prevents sudden shock or power-related issues. Also, this opens up a world of possibilities who love to drink and eat. There is a nonstick pan inside the fryer which can be washed pretty easily and the rest of the fryer is dishwasher safe most of the times. Air fryer also disallows the concept of adding oil which has been the reason why many people can follow the recipes so easily, and accurately.
Top chefs have used the gadget for making healthier and tasty dishes which would be also very heart-friendly and cholesterol conscious. This way, you can “deep fry” food everyday and eat it without feeling guilty about eating too many calories, or eat the same oil in which many batches of fries have been fried. The oil is harmful, as after frying for 10 hours or so carcinogenic properties develop in cooking oil left heating over high heat. In an Airfryer, no oil is necessary, and the user can use a few drops of oil on the food they want to fry, and put it in. Within a scheduled time, the food is cooked to one’s perfection and the taste is the same as fried.
So, the airfryer is definitely a very useful gadget. On one hand, it helps cook food without oil. On the other hand it is dishwasher-safe and consumes less fuel than other brands. That makes this product a very beneficial one for those who are worried about their bodies and would want to take care of himself/herself.
