10 Best Air Fryers for 2021 - Best Rated Air Fryers on Amazon

When we talk about deep fried, we are talking about litres of greasy oil and messy splatters, right? Well, not anymore! The new age of deep frying now involves a mere tablespoon of oil (if that), and a set-it-and-forget-it attitude. They are called Air Fryers, and they are taking the world by storm – making meals crispy, but easy on the fat content. Everyone I know who owns one has great feedback about the product, but the question is: Which brand is the best?

According to Best Reviews Guide, the top four placings in which the fryers are voted are as follows:

4) T-Fal Actifry

This low ranking totally caught me by surprise because this fryer is usually the one I often hear about. It comes in two sizes and has a cool to the touch body for easy manipulation. The heat pulse system is for even temperature distribution while cooking, and a removable basket that is also dishwasher safe. All you do is throw in a tablespoon of oil into the uncooked food, close it and set the timer. There are different settings for the various foods that you put in – keeping cooking pretty straightforward.

3) COSORI Smart 12-in-1 Air Fryer

This fryer is a bit of a cheat as it has many different functions: Rotisserie, pizza roast, toaster, broiler, and a cookie baker, just to name a few. The oven can be connected to a smartphone to adjust temperature and time, to find recipes, or to simply turn the light on and off. You could access over a hundred chef-inspired recipes that are updated frequently, and also allows you to share and save. Pretty neat, huh?

2) Chefman 6.3-Qt 4-in-1 Digital Air Fryer

The fact that this fryer needs no time to preheat before use is pretty fancy to me! It has a huge 6 litre unit that can make more than enough food for the whole family. The fryer comes with 2 air flow racks, rotisserie spit and forks, rotating basket/retrieval tool and drip tray. Removable drip tray and dishwasher safe parts make cleaning easy breezy. The internal temperature has a range of 90-400 degrees and 8 pre-set options make any meal easy – from frying and roasting to dehydrating and baking!

1) COSORI 5.8Qt Oil-Free XL Electric Hot Air Fryer

It’s all in the name – an oil-free fryer that does the same job as the rest? I’m truly impressed! COSORI has 11-in-1 pre-sets, and overheat protection that makes your cooking a safe task. A “shake” reminder is also present to ensure that you remember when to move your food around in the basket, preventing an overcooked meal. The 5.8qt basket serves 3 to 5 people, and fits a whopping 5-6 lb whole chicken! Sounds like a one-stop-shop to me.

What are your thoughts? Do you currently use the number one brand in the world of air fryers? If so, I want to hear what you think. Send a photo of your fryer and delicious food to me, and I will feature your story in another addition of Product Talk. That’s a wrap everyone. Remember to cook healthy, and happy Wednesday everyone!
