We Reveal the Top 5 Air Fryers Your Money can Buy

Finally, Healthy Fried Food That Tastes Amazing!

For years the only way to get deliciously moreish fries at home was to have a greasy deep fryer lurking in the corner of your kitchen. But no more! Now guilt-free and delicious fried foods can be yours whenever you desire. Check out the best bread machines if you’re interested in making healthy, home-made bread, too!

How do air fryers work?

Air fryers cook by coating food in a very thin film of oil and circulating hot air. This produces that tasty, crispy layer that’s so synonymous of traditionally fried foods, but with an incredible 80% less fat, depending on the fryer. It doesn’t have to be fries, either. Air fried chicken, fish, burgers, and even donuts can all be successfully cooked in a fryer, and taste delicious. There are several points to consider when choosing your power air fryer ovens:

  • Capacity – The average fryer can cope with approximately 2lbs of food in one go; however some models have a larger capacity, suited to a large family.
  • Controls and Features – Does it have a timer, or temperature control? Can you switch between different cooking modes?
  • Multitasking – Many air fryers do a whole load of other things than cook fries and chicken. Some grill, steam and even bake cakes!
  • Is it dishwasher safe?
  • Will it fit in the space available?
  • Smart Enabled? – A few manufacturers are designing air fryers with smart features, controllable through Alexa products and other smart devices. You select the recipe you want from an app, which then sends instructions to the air fryer, which cooks the food to perfection, alerting you when it’s done.

It’s been a real hardship to review these fryers – how many healthy fries can we eat? Actually, more than we ever thought possible.

Introducing the best Air Fryers on sale in 2023:

1) Chefman Air Fryer

Chefman TurboFry 2 Quart Air Fryer, Personal Compact Healthy Fryer w/ Adjustable Temperature Control, 30 Minute Timer and Dishwasher Safe Basket, Black


We’re wowed; there’s not much this popular airfryer can’t do. It roasts, fries, re heats, and bakes, all viewed through a handy window to wake up the taste buds.

It’s sleek, and although it bears more than a slight resemblance to something worn by a Storm Trooper, it is well worth giving this more-than-just-an-air-fryer space in your kitchen.

What We Like

Sometimes when a gadget attempts to multi task, it’s merely a jack of all trades; however, the Chefman masters everything thrown at it.

Our roast chicken was moistly delectable, with an evenly browned crispy skin. Everything seemed to have a lot of more flavor than the other fryers (we used the same oil throughout). Even the chocolate cake that we whizzed up out of sheer desperation for a chocolate fix cooked quickly.

What Needs Improving

The Chefman itself exceeded our expectations; however, after 40 or so uses, the coating started to come off the basket. This isn’t a deal breaker for us at all. The food was still delicious, and the fryer still performed perfectly.

9.8Expert Score
The Final Verdict

This is an excellent product, with abilities beyond just deep frying. No wonder so many air fryer reviews are crazy about it.

2) DayPlus Air Fryer

Image 5 - XL 5.8QT Digital Electric Air Fryer with LED Touch Display 6 Functions + Recipes


Unpacking this fryer, we were positively surprised by how much was included. DayPlus have thought of everything. There are baskets, an extra grill, tongs, cake moulds, and even replacement little rubber feet so that it never marks your surfaces. The recipe booklet is glossy and full of yummy looking ideas. First appearances count and in this case, they were impressive.

What We Like

We remained impressed as we put it through its paces. First, the fries – crispy outside, fluffy in, and cooked to perfection using the timer. Next, chicken. The large basket can hold enough for several hungry people, and again, delicious.

We tried several recipes, giving it a full workout, and this fryer performed well every time, and was easy to clean afterwards.

That this fryer is sleek and stylish is obvious, but it works well too, with the ability to create a lavish feast for guests, or a quick guilt free supper for one.

The timer is really useful and easy to set. If you want to check how your food is doing, just pull out the basket, there’s no need to alter the timer as it automatically adjusts once the basket is slotted back.

What Needs Improving

The instructions could be a little clearer – sometimes we had to guess what to do. Luckily, it’s simple to use, so we got along just fine, but maybe, DayPlus, they could be a little better.

9.7Expert Score
The Final Verdict

This fryer produces awesomely crisp and tasty food. It tackled everything with ease, looks great, and can multitask like a pro. Happy to recommend!

It cooks in 360 degrees and the perfect crisp system ensures that everything comes out crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. On top of that, you get +100 recipes to inspire your air cooking.

What We Like

The features possessed by this Fryer perform up to expectations. It produced the perfect roast chicken, we have fried eggs, made kebabs, chips and muffins – every single item has come out just as we desired, and in half the time of a conventional oven.

What Needs Improving

The basket is a little smaller than anticipated. It may not be able to cater for a huge family but if that’s not an issue, you’ll love it.

4) Secura Air Fryer


This is one of the cheaper models we tried, but don’t let that put you off. It doesn’t come with the impressive extras of the Holsem, or the disco lights of the Power Air Fryer, but this is a user friendly, no frills fryer. It does what it says on the box, and it does it well.

What We Like

We like this air fryer – it’s honest, very simple to use, and doesn’t take up much room, yet still has a decent family-size capacity. It’s also quiet to use, and easy to clean. It’s the fryer we would happily gift to someone special.

The longer length cable makes for easy positioning, and it never gets even the tiniest bit warm on the outside.

What Needs Improving

Ideally, the knobs should be ridged or ribbed, for easy turning and positioning, but this isn’t a major issue for us.

9.6Expert Score
The Final Verdict

As you may have guessed, we're big fans. It’s unobtrusive, makes great food, isn’t full of self importance and sticks to its promises.

5) GoWISE USA Air Fryer


This happy little fryer is one of Amazon’s Best Sellers year after year. We tested this model in a shiny, slick black with brushed steel fittings. It’s stylishly good looking, and satisfyingly rotund. It comes with a non-stick FDA-certified and PFOA free pan and detachable basket. A lot of thought has gone into this design.

What We Like

This fryer is so simple to use – with a range of pre-set programs it can fry, bake, grill, or roast. It also does a mean sautéd zucchini, which some others fryers fail on. The instruction manual had plenty of easy to follow diagrams making it practically impossible to go wrong.

The Air Fryer’s looks are more than just skin deep though, and its performance is equally admirable. Putting it through its paces, we were impressed with how simple it was to use, and to clean afterwards.

We like the fact that the manufacturers have considered the environmental impact when designing this fryer – the only one we tested that appeared to do so.

What Needs Improving

We would recommend buying the larger capacity from the get go. You’ll only end up upgrading when everyone starts dropping round for your delicious fried chicken or doughnuts.
