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
80% 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.

|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.
