This sleek 4th generation Air Fryer made by GoWise USA features a user-friendly digital touchscreen interface with 7 built in presets allowing you to easily cook steak, fish, meat, shrimp, chips, chicken and bake cake. Temperature and cooking time can be manually adjusted as well. The unit is equipped with a 30-minute timer, which is adequate for most uses, however we’d prefer it to be a standard 1-hour timer like the ones offered in other brands and models.

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.
I saw a commerical about an air fryer. I wanted to buy it so bad but it was over $150. Im in my early 20s and thats not my budget. I checked reviews on WalMart and seen this fryer. The reviews are true!! And the price is a steal. The appliance itself is beautiful. Fits perfectly on your counter top and matches any kitchen scheme. Its self explantory and easy to use! I tested almost everything within moments I got it. Fries, nuggets & raw seasoned chicken! My famous broiled chicken no longer needs to go in the oven! This quart fit all 5 pieces of chicken breast in there!! I flipped a few times for even cooking but its like a mini oven. Eating healthy is hard and this makes me so happy. I dont have to sacrifice my fav foods. A lot of chicken! Seasoned w/ pepper & cajun. No oil added or anything special.

Thankfully, all those functions are pretty easy to use -- the SimpleTaste 1400W Multi-Function Air Fryer features dedicated buttons for each mode on the front, along with a display to tell you exactly what temperature the air fryer’s at, in case you want a little more manual control. Speaking of temperature, the fryer can circulate air at between 170 and 400 degrees.
Piece of trash. I was so excited to buy this oven, thinking it would be healthier, convenient & faster way to feed our family. The oven on tv isn’t the same version, so we upgraded. Food looked so delicious on tv wrong wrong! I used the rotisserie for a whole chicken but can only have a chicken weighing 4 lbs. To return it you must insure & sent usps or ups $105 later we sent it back. What a rip-off.
Perfectly flaky pies from your air fryer? You bet! Store-bought piecrust is a smart shortcut; it bakes up nice and flaky in the air fryer. Naturally, fresh peaches will make the best filling, but you can use thawed frozen peaches if the fresh kind aren’t in season. Don’t toss out the leftover peach juice—simmer it down in a small saucepan until thickened for a fantastic ice cream topper.
Of course, there's nothing wrong with treating yourself every now and then, in moderation. The issue with these fatty food options is that eating them too frequently can sometimes lead to health issues. And even if that's not the case, the guilt we feel after giving in to the temptation of a greasy meal was enough to send us searching for an alternative.
Ideal cooking temperatures are hard to maintain. The secret to successful deep frying is maintaining a proper oil temperature. When cooking oil falls below a certain temperature, the food's internal moisture does not repel the oil as well, resulting in greasy, undercooked food. Simply putting a bag of frozen food into a hot deep fryer will affect the oil temperature, and the heating elements of many deep fryers take a long time to recover from the shock. This is not a concern with superheated cooking methods such as convection or air frying.
I have had this product for about 1 week now, and am overall pleased with my purchase. I've read multiple reviews prior to purchasing and knew what I was getting into prior to its arrival, and was able to try a few things out to make my own conclusions. Also there are many more reviews from the UK/Australia, but I use the US version and have cooking times in farenheit etc.
The T-fal was the only model we tested that stayed room-temperature across the entire surface, which helps keep children’s curious hands safe. It also requires two steps to open: Instead of simply pulling the handle to access the cooking bowl, we had to push and lift the handle and then press another side button to release the top. It wasn’t a complex maneuver, but it gave us a little more peace of mind when thinking about young ones trying to get to their fries early.
If you plan to buy this tool now, do not waste your time – because its price is quite affordable, while the quality is really high. But let us talk about the product first! Philips air fryer exists in the black and white color – you can decide what fits better to your kitchen interior. Were you aware of the fact that Gordon Ramsey teams up with this particular model to prove that making healthy and delicious food is possible? When you buy this tool, you get the recipe book with 150 amazing recipes for you.

Okay, yes, the small appliance was invented as a way for French-fry maniacs in France (and the rest of Europe) to make fries in their small home kitchens. And sure, the air fryer does an exceptional job of crispifying vegetables and chicken wings alike, without vats of sizzling oil. But to think of the air fryer as a, well, fryer is to both sell it short, and set yourself up for disappointment.


There are so many things you can make in an air fryer, in fact, the possibilities are endless. I know my kid’s would love these Air Fryer Chicken Nuggets. And who wouldn’t love a batch of these Air Fryer Spicy Sweet Potato Fries? And who would have thought Air Fryer Roasted Corn would turn out so perfect.  And holy wow these Copycat Taco Bell Air Fryer Crunch Wraps sound over the top. But these Air Fryer Reuben Egg Rolls also sound crazy addictive.
It is recommended to get a hot air frying device which has an auto shut off function and if possible an alert system when the cooking is done. This will keep you and the appliance safe from overheating and damage and will ensure that your food is not overcooked. An alert system will allow you to immediately proceed to serve the food after it is done
So, what can you make in an air fryer? The possibilities are limitless—and you can use an air fryer to make comfort food favorites that are normally deep-fried, sauteed, baked, or grilled. So whether you've craving onion rings, French toast, or cheesy loaded potatoes, here are 35 delicious air fryer recipes to show you how to make the most of this amazingly versatile kitchen tool. 
When it comes to the “latest and greatest” kitchen gadgets, I’ll be the first to admit I have some baggage. A few years ago, my brother nearly ruined Christmas dinner by using an “As Seen On TV” infrared oven (a gimmicky predecessor to the air fryer) to “re-fry” my mom’s Vietnamese imperial rolls. Not only did it take forever, but the rice paper wrappers emerged from the “miracle machine” with an extremely unappetizing plastic-like texture. It was a grim meal that my mother has never let him forget.
One year ago I shared my Grapefruit Cranberry Martini with you, have you made it yet? Five years ago this quick dinner of Loaded Sausage and Gravy Baked Potatoes came into my life and is still a quick dinner for us. Seven years ago I learned to make Chicago-Style Hot Dogs at home and shared them with you. Eight years ago these Cornmeal-Blueberry Scones made me feel like spring in the middle of winter. And nine years ago this Asparagus Popover won me over.

T-fal may not be as well-known as the likes of Philips or Black and Decker, but the ActiFry has a lot to offer -- namely the fact that it solves the issue of flipping over your food with a built-in paddle that slowly rotates the food while it cooks. That can be pretty hand -- it means you can set your air fryer and then forget about the food until it’s literally ready to eat.
Tristar held an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, based on 17 reviews (100 percent of which were negative) and nearly 750 closed complaints, as of 10/30/17. Where details were available, most of these appeared to revolve around lower quality than expected and customer service difficulties. In each instance, a company representative responded with a proposed solution.

I have precious little counter space in my little kitchen, but this has a permanent home! I absolutely adore this thing. Best thing I've gotten since I got the Ninja 3 in 1 cooker. Those are the two appliances that have a home on my counter. Chicken wings in the fryer are awesome. You can also make some awesome brats or dogs in it and get a nice crispy crunch to the skins. I've done a few roasted veggies that are awesome. The quiche I made got a little over done but was terrific. I had bought the NuWave from QVC and absolutely hated that thing. I sold it before my convenient 5 pay option was over. It was so cumbersome and awkward to use in my small kitchen. The clean up on this one is so easy. you basically just rinse it out and dry it off. Attaching a picture of some wings I did today with some homemade blue cheese.
With every year that passes, more and more doctors are urging people to consume less fat in their diets, what with the alarming growth of food-related illnesses that were not seen decades before. Many people find it difficult to change their eating habits and even refuse to do it because it would mean giving up their favorite dishes. However, technology has made it possible so that you can stay healthy while cooking all your favorite “fatty foods” without the guilt!
"It was called an air fryer for marketing purposes, but it's a little unfortunate, because, first, people think they can only do fried food in it and that it's a gimmicky single use appliance," Ben Mims, author of the new book Air Fry Every Day, says. "Second, people think that things can be thrown into it just like a deep fat fryer and will come out the same. That is a hundred percent not the case."
Like most everyone, I care about what I put into my body, and I know enough about nutrition science to understand that french fries should not be a diet staple. But even with my health in mind, I subscribe to the Chrissy Teigen philosophy of eating—if I’m going to be counting calories or limiting entire food groups, I’m going to make sure every single thing I eat is as delicious as possible.
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.

Overall, I think this is a good product and best suited for 1-2 people who are looking for easy ways to cook frozen foods that turn out as good and way less oil compared to deep frying, and would be great for kids who want to eat frozen foods and maintain that high quality crunch. Some foods you cannot substitute for deep frying, and there is a whole range of items of fresh foods that I have not tried yet due to time constraints. However, the price point remains high for this product, and think that it would sell better if it was around $150.

Those dials are on there for a reason, so pay attention to them. “Take the time (about 3 minutes) to set the air fryer to the proper temperature before you get cooking,” says Dana Angelo White MS, RD, ATC author of the Healthy Air Fryer Cookbook, “Preheating the air fryer is best for optimum cooking, the temperature and air flow will be at right levels and food can cook to crispy air fried perfection,” she explains.

We loved the super simplistic design.  We know that air frying doesn’t require too much temperature monitoring, and it’s apparent that T-fal have implemented this knowledge in the design.  There is only an on/off button and a timer control that displays a digital countdown which can be set up to 99 minutes.  There is no temperature dial with this unit heating up to 338 °F and staying there.


This Air Fryer is one of the best! I read some reviews of others before buying and I have had no trouble with it at all. I have used it numerous times since getting it for Christmas. Most things you have to shake halfway through as stated in the instructions. Frozen or precooked anything comes out great, except precooked greasy hamburgers. I like it because it removes some of the grease from the frozen items that you cook in it. I am extremely happy with it.!
There are plenty of air fryers out there, but there are also plenty of reasons why the Philips HD9641/96 is the best one. For starters, most users argue that the device is able to cook food nice and evenly, which is pretty important. Not only that, but the interface of the Philips HD9641/96 is relatively easy to use thanks largely to its so-called “QuickControl” dial, and features a relatively small footprint compared to many of the other air fryers out there.
While the Krups Fry Delight won’t give you quite as crunchy results as the Philips, it also won’t empty your bank account. We love its square design, which not only looks more attractive but makes it easy to fit in a cabinet. While this is one of the smaller models, it can still hold up to a pound and a half of fries, four chicken pieces, or a pound of meat.
This recipe was absolutely delicious!! I just got my air fryer for Christmas and this is one of the first things I have tried.  Not only was it easy but a recipe  I am sure I will go back to many times.  I served it to my husband and son and they both loved it.  I had no left overs so now I need to find another Skinny taste recipe for dinner tonight.
From the reviews, we noticed many consumers were not using their air fryers on a regular basis. Even though it's an air fryer, it creates grease during the cooking process. People would get a messy surprise when opening their air fryer after not using it for some time. This often happened due to the difficulty of cleaning the areas where grease accumulates.
Specialty root chips can cost $5 to $6 per bag at the grocery store; save big bucks by whipping up a couple batches in your air fryer. The secret to crispy beet chips is to slice the beets super thin; if your knife skills aren’t Top Chef level, use a mandolin to get wafer-thin slices. Don’t overcrowd the air fryer basket; air flow is crucial to getting the chips nice and crispy.
Then I was told it was on my dime to return it - NOT HAPPY! I called two more times to complain that they should pay for the return shipping because it was false advertising. They refused, so I mailed both packages back at MY COST of $51. I was fuming when I got home and called again for reimbursement, THEN they offered to send a return label. I said "can't you read? I just paid $50 to return it." They gave me another number to call and I got nowhere again trying to be reimbursed for shipping.
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.
It's an oven, dehydrator, rotisserie, air fryer and can even do your taxes. Ok maybe not the taxes part. What I love about this unit is how easy it is to use. The settings allow you to do so much. It's spacious enough for a whole chicken, yet compact enough to have on your kitchen counter space. The dehydrator is perfect for making healthy fruit and veggie chips. The air fryer is great for french fries, fish sticks, and chicken nuggets without the guilt. You can even stick a whole chicken in it, set it, and it'll do it's thing. Cleaning is also a breeze where you can take out the racks and trays to wash separately. Love this great addition to any kitchen. * I am writing this review as part of a contest.
