Features to Consider

Types of air fryers: There are three best-rated air fryer types: Basket models crisp up food in a pod-style machine, toaster oven models are larger and fit more food, and fryer combos come with other built-in capabilities (like a pressure cooker).

Capacity: Basket fryers can whip up a batch of fries or a few pieces of chicken, while some toaster-oven styles can handle an entire chicken or a small turkey.

Temperature range: Air fryers typically cook between 100˚F and 400˚F.

Programmable settings: The top air fryers come with easy preset buttons for meat, chips, fish and more, while others have functions like warming, roast, broil, dehydrate and even pause.

Cleaning: Less cooking grease also means less cleanup time. Many air fryers come with dishwasher-safe parts.

Warranty: Small appliance warranties typically range from one to three years.
