We had the other one and it worked great, gave it to me daughter after we got this one. Wish we had it back : this is good tor wings and fries but you try and use the skewers they are to short to reach on both sides, as far as the rotisserie part you have to use baby capons, not a chicken. ( joke ). Friends got the Nuwave air oven and its twice the unit ours is. Guess I ll just give this to someone else and get one of them. To bad I m out all that money! So don't waste your money.

I preheated the air fryer and my oven, prepped the birds and immediately ran into trouble. I had to cram the tiny chicken into the air fryer basket, and as soon as I closed the door, I could smell something burning. I'd clearly exceeded the height limit for this ride, and now dinner was running late. I fished the slightly singed chicken out, set it on a cutting board and—getting a little desperate since people were on the way over—did what must have looked like man-on-chicken chest compressions in an attempt to break the backbone, or at least flatten the thing out a bit before performing some innovative re-trussing. Surprisingly, it worked.

We soon found that the majority of air fryer brands on the market carry essentially the same internal cooking technology — circulating hot air around the food — only really differing in their external designs and features. Philips and T-fal were the exceptions, and we discovered that both companies hold patents on air-frying technology. From there, we narrowed down our search by researching the technology, reading cooking blogs, and sifting through customer reviews to find top-performing brands and top air fryer models. That left us with a list of seven products. Philips dominated the list, but we brought in a few other recommended brands to see if anything could stand up to Philips’ models.
Ease of use. If you are a tech minded millennial, you will most likely be looking at air fryers with a digital touch screen interface. Personally, that’s always my choice, as I’m always afraid to break the control knob. On the other hand, for those of us more traditionally inclined in our gadget choices, there are air fryers with an analog interface.
“Finally bought one of these and have not regretted since. One of the best kitchen tools on my countertop. Easy to use, easy to clean, and the best thing are all the healthy foods. No more greasy French fries. One of the nice features of this fryer is that the basket is quite large compared to the other brands I was looking at. It will easily hold enough fries for three to four people to eat. I’ve been experimenting with food items I thought I would never fry. Just add one to two teaspoons of olive oil, add the items, timer for 20 minutes, and you’re done. I’ve done eggs, wings, fries that you would ‘normally’ fry. But I’ve also done egg noodles (like pan-fried noodles in Chinese restaurants). I tried deep-fried Twinkies even. Didn’t come out exactly like the deep-fried Twinkies from the fairs, but it wasn’t horrible either. Overall, my family enjoys having this fryer. It really is a good way to make the normally unhealthy fried foods less unhealthy.”

There’s no denying it—the air fryer is awesome. It gives you crispy, salty French fries in a matter of minutes with half the fat and calories you’d expect in a traditional restaurant order or McDonald’s run. And, there’s no comprising on the taste. In fact, you can even add in your own herbs and spices and use out-of-the-box ingredients to shake things up.
CR’s take: The most expensive of the group, the Philips TurboStar HD9641/96 has a capacity of 3.1 quarts, which puts it in the middle of the pack in terms of size. The electronic controls are fairly easy to use and read, and there’s a handy knob to set the cooking time and temperature. Preprogrammed settings for commonly cooked foods eliminate a step. Cleaning the nooks of the basket can be a chore, although the rest of the fryer cleans up easily, earning this air fryer a Good rating in our cleaning tests. The warranty is one year.
You’re best to go with the top 5 air fryers listed, but all of them are fairly strong in what they do.  Overall, it’s up to your individual requirements that will determine what appliance will suit your needs.  We hope you enjoyed our best air fryers reviews for 2018!  Below you will find a buyer’s guide that will point out some aspects of air fryers that you should be aware of.

This was delivered yesterday... already love It. Wanted something that was quick and this is it. So far made potato skins and pizza rolls (from frozen) spayed a bit of Pam.. and cut some foil to cover just the bottom. Came out perfect and crispy. The skins cheeses was bubbly and the skin crisp and inside steaming (10 minutes. Pizza rolls 9 minutes flipping half way , crispy and brown. Can't wait to try with chicken wings and fries tomorrow.

Traded in my Big Boss Air Fryer for one of these and I absolutely love it. I cooked bacon the other day. You need to rotate the racks every now and then because the top cooks faster than the others and you need to spritz them lightly with cooking spray. Two days ago I used the rotisserie. Took me a while to find the spit because it was on the bottom of the styrofoam packaging. Good thing I didn't throw it out. It's a great little oven. It would be perfect for a student in college or a senior. I just love it.
Unfortunately we didn’t get our hands on this model but from reading dozens of reviews one thing consistently props up and it’s to do with hear.  Let’s say you’re cooking chips and then you need to turn them over.  It has been reported that the drawer expands due to the high temperatures, making removing and re-inserting it extremely difficult.  It gets so bad that some users have reported waiting for the appliance to cool down so the drawer regains its original shape.

“Love this thing! First off, the food tastes amazing! Second, it’s so easy to operate, even my hubby uses it (and he can’t boil water — sorry, Joe). Third, it cuts cooking time in half of baking time — and you don’t have to preheat! And last, it cleans up so easily! I never leave appliances out on my counter — except for this baby. Can’t imagine not having one for the rest of my life!”
I followed the Leah Chase's Oven-Fried Chicken recipe to test the second batch of chicken. After dredging, I brushed each piece of chicken with a light coat of olive oil in order to soak up the flour and prevent it from caking up and not “frying” correctly. I set the airfryer to 410°F for 30 minutes and preheat the oven at 425°F. However, 10 minutes into baking, the oven started to smoke really bad, so I turned the temperature down to 400°F. (I suspect the excess flour on the pan was burning.) Halfway through cooking, I flipped the chicken in both the oven and air fryer and noticed the bottom breading stuck to the basket in the air fryer, so I would definitely recommend spraying the basket with cooking spray. Naturally, the oven batch took 15 minutes longer (45 minutes total) to cook since I turned the temperature down. The air fryer chicken again cooked quicker, was crisper, and did not smoke up the kitchen. In fact, the air fryer batch was delightfully crispy and the breading was fully cooked through—no soggy bits to be seen. The drawback, again, was that it could only hold a few pieces of chicken. That said, though the oven batch may not have been quite a crisp in the breading, I will say, the flesh was much juicer. 

The “fryer” baskets on the models we tested have a nonstick coating. As we’ve learned from researching and testing nonstick skillets, the coating will eventually deteriorate with regular use and exposure to high heat. Additionally, our testers found each air fryer’s perforated basket and tray to be far more difficult to clean than the single sheet pan we used in the oven or toaster oven.
Sure, there’s something nice about the crispiness of a fry right out of the deep fryer. However, if you’re looking to make a chicken, a steak, or an apple pie, you’re not going to turn to a deep fryer. More than likely, you’ll be turning to the conventional oven for those things. With an air fryer, you get the best of both worlds, so you can cook all of those things in one appliance.
As is with MOST As Seen On TV junk, this item is exactly that. I am taking a pretty good guess that 50% of their units are junk even before they leave their factory. Kind of like fall-apart Kmart junk. After unit internal parts fail even before the warranty expires, you have to pack it and return it at YOUR cost. There are absolutely NO phone numbers to call for ANY assistance for purchasing even the light bulb for it, which a majority of the machine needs to be taken apart just to get to it. Parts rust within a few weeks even when hand washed. SquareTrade's extended warranty backed by Allstate Ins. Co. is also just as worthless!

Because it offers so much, the device is quite a bit larger than other air fryers. That may not be a bad thing considering it can replace more than one device on your counter. The TOA-60 boasts a 0.6 cubic foot interior, an adjustable thermostat, 60-minute timer, and the necessary accessories to make use of all its functions. Most users love it too -- it currently has a 4.5-star average on Amazon, across 225 reviews.

Add half of your cauliflower to air fryer (no need to oil the basket). Cook for 12-14 minutes, shaking halfway, or until you reach desired consistency. Repeat with remaining cauliflower, except lower cook time to 9-10 minutes. Cauliflower will keep tightly sealed in the refrigerator up to 4 days. To reheat, add back to air fryer for 1-2 minutes, until warmed through and slightly crispy.
The chicken was not only crunchy on the outside, it was also tender and juicy on the inside. The subtle flavors of the wet dredge can be tasted in the crunchy crumb topping. I served these with a side of Ranch Dressing, but you could also serve these with honey mustard, barbecue sauce, or Polynesian Sauce. All are very good options for these lightly flavored chicken tenders.
Ultimately, I was really pleased with the results from the air fryer. The chicken was beautifully browned, with crispy edges, but still very moist inside. And it was ready for the table before the oven batch (which took around 35 to 40 minutes). When I pulled the chicken from the oven, it was a little less crispy, but was still quite moist on the inside. I tossed both of the batches in a sweet peach barbecue sauce to finish. For me, the takeaway pro of the air fryer in this round of “frying” was that it technically cooked the chicken faster; the big con is that I could only fit half the amount of chicken as compared to using the oven.
We’re sad to say that after more than 35 hours researching and testing air fryers, we don’t recommend them for most people. The air fryers we tried didn’t cook food better than a regular convection oven or convection toaster oven. Though we were genuinely excited to test air fryers, we think they’re far too expensive for what they give you. However, if you’re determined to get an air fryer, the Philips HD9641/96 Airfryer was the best of the models we tested—but we still don’t recommend it.
The HighYa team has reviewed several of the most popular air fryers over the years. And during our research, we’ve learned that capacity (cooks greater amounts of food), the wattage (cooks faster and more evenly), and number of available features (adds convenience) often have the biggest impact on customer satisfaction, according to their online reviews.
Will it be frozen fries, chicken wings, chips, and other simple dishes, or more complex recipes that require different heating options, like grilling, steaming, and baking? Air fryers like the Philips XL AirFry are perfect for people who will need an appliance with different modes so they can make a large variety of meals. The downside to it is the steep learning curve you have to go through in order to understand the machine fully, but once you do, you’ll be making mouth-watering cuisine in no time.
The way this device works is that in order to cook your food efficiently and uniformly, there is an in-in-built exhaust system that controls the temperature and pressure at which the food cooks. This exhaust system releases the necessary air in order to do so, but ensures that this air is properly filtered first. As a result, this device is not only safe to use for yourself, but also for the surrounding environment too.
Avalon provide a digital and analog version of the product.  The core difference is that the digital comes with pre-programmed settings for cooking meat, fish or chicken and allows for greater control of the temperature and time.  Although the analog model is the cheaper option, the trade-off is using dials that don’t provide as much precision as a digital display.
This wasn’t the cheapest of appliances (close to $200 USD), which is why it took me 2 years to finally bite the bullet. There are several options on Amazon though, but the Philips and T-Fal models seem to be the most popular. However, with as much as I’ve already used it and the fact that we’ll be going through a kitchen remodel soon where I won’t have an oven, I think I will definitely get my money’s worth.
And not only did I think we were not going to use it, I especially did not want another “thing” on my kitchen counter. Extra stuff on my kitchen counters is really one of my pet peeves. I really despise anything being dumped on them, whether it’s mail, car keys, computers…take them to your room and keep them there! But that’s a rant for another day.

The Philips HD9240/94 XL Airfryer is basically a larger version of the Philips HD9641/96 Airfryer. In our tests, the two devices performed similarly, but we think the larger model is impractical for most people because it takes up a lot of counter space and costs $300. The booklet guidelines are not reliable, either: The directions say to cook 4 ounces of chicken breasts at 290 °F for eight minutes and then at 360 °F for six minutes. Unfortunately, 290 °F isn’t a temperature option on this model.
As a congenitally blind 65-year old cook, I’ve used all sorts of deep-fat fryers, and even pan fry. However, being a double widower, with no one to impress and cook for, I very rarely deep fry because of the setup and cleanup time. The 9220-28 or TFal seem like good candidates for me. I’ll probably use the timer on my Talking Magic Chef microwave, and can’t use digital beasties sans speech output, so analog is better than good. However, wondering which of the two might have more easily markable dial? Usually either notch outer edge of dial, or if nothing to aim notches at, mark the dials with loc-dots or highmark. Suggestions please?
Would not recommend this product. The basket is VERY hard to get in and out. Purchased one and returned it for that reason and got a new one, this one worked for a bit but started having the same problem. Then the outside part of the basket broke off, making it impossible for the unit to turn on without holding the basket in place. Have had for 9 months and the company will not replace the basket outside part and told me I would need to buy another one instead. Very very disappointing.
It worked great and I loved it for the first 100 days, until the fan quit working. I got a replacement and the second one lasted 20 days and the fan went out again. Power Air Fryer is a joke and a huge piece of junk. I will not spend money to send something back a second time to get fixed. Two in a row with the same issue, a big waste of money. Don't buy, don't buy, don't buy.
Do you just want to place the food in the basket and sit down and relax knowing that your food will be ready in a bit, or do you mind checking on it every once in a while? Air fryers like the T-fal Actifry, which has a stirring paddle, were made so that you can rest easy knowing that you won’t have to do much to eat. Other air fryers products require a little more attention if you want some food in your stomach. Checking out air fryers with specific functions that best fit your needs is important before making a purchase.

Only worked less then 5 months. The oven will not shut off even with the door open. The only way to stop it is by pulling the plug. You don't even have to have the door on it and it will run. There is strong burning smell coming form it. And when I called about it, they said that my 60 days to return it was over. I ask if there was any kind of recall because of this safety issue and I was told no.
Power Air Fryer Oven is an oven that superheats the air inside using Rapid Air Technology, thereby enabling it to cook your food with practically no oil at all. Without the need to add any extra calories or fat to your food, you can still get the same taste, yet with a much healthier output. Enjoying your favorite snacks such as onion rings, French fries, and much more, can all be produced in more healthily.
Fresh Chicken wings - this is what sold me on this machine. Just take fresh wings from the grocery store and brush with some olive oil, cook for 18 minutes on 350-390 with a shake half way, plate and pour on your favorite warmed wing sauce. Definitely as good as doing it in the deep fryer in terms of crisp on on the outside and tender inside, superior to baking as well (conventional baking). However, this does create some smoke but if you pour out the oil (the extra oil just from the chicken itself that comes from cooking) at the time you shake you will avoid the smoke. This makes 8 wings easily, could probably make 12 easily as well without stacking. and I am also thinking of getting the layering rack when the price goes down.
CON: The trays came a little warped, though I later when I used the trays for chicken wings, the heat helped straighten the trays a bit. The little plastic channels for the trays are very difficult to use. It takes me a couple of tries of very careful insertion in order to catch the grooves correctly. This is incredibly difficult when you have super hot trays, heavy with food on them.
