So very sleek

Ooooh baby this fryer looks like something out of a futuristic movie and much like science fiction it can do more than you'd ever believe. It fries, bakes, grills, and roasts, lets you change temperature mid-cycle, and cooks up delicious meals quickly with minimal fuss. Not only that it also comes with a recipe book to get you started. This is a great option for someone who wants their first air fryer.

Double the options!

I love love love the divided basket on this fryer. It means that you can cook up two different foods, one in each half, at the same time. Make a full meal with just the air fryer and almost no work. I'm drooling thinking about fried chicken and french fries.

From the makers of Instant Pot...

If you love your Instant Pot, you might be excited to know that the same company makes an air fryer. People are very into it: "I have tried the Bake and Airfry features so far and I LOVE IT! The air fryer heats up very quickly! So there's no need to "reheat" when you're going to use it because it normally heats up in less than 5 minutes."

Dehydrate or deep fry

This may be the highest rated air fryer available: it's got a perfect 5 star rating with over 13,806 reviews. It should be impossible, but the Ninja Air Fryer does it. You can heat it anywhere from 105 degrees to 400 degrees to meet your needs. It's incredibly easy to clean, and and the reviews rave about how delicious the food is: people are very into the chicken with this one.

More options

You might be noticing that almost all these air fryers come in the wide variety of one color: black. This option from Cosori gives you a few more choices, including a beautiful bold red that I am lusting after. It's also bigger than most other air fryers, which only have a 4 quart basket: this baby holds 5.8 quarts. This is a great choice for a larger family.

Just a little guy

On the other hand if you're cooking for one or need to conserve counter space, this cute lil egg of a fryer holds 3.7 quarts and couldn't be more adorable. It also has an auto-stop to go with its timer so you don't forget your food and end up with something inedible: perfect for forgetful goofs like me. It also allows you to set any temperature and time rather than only relying on presets, so it's great for more creative chefs.

How about a rotisserie spit?

You may notice that this fryer looks more like a tiny oven, and that's because it has a rotisserie basket that allows you to keep your food moving inside the fryer. You can get a perfectly even cook all the way through, and it's absolutely great for roasting meat. If you don't want to use the rotisserie basket or spit, it also has two pans so you can fry up multiple foods at once.

Quiet and satisfying

Cuisinart is a well-respected brand, so it's no surprise that their entry into the air fryer world is high quality. It's incredibly quiet, but still quite powerful, and can fry up to 2.5 pounds of food at a time. You can adjust the time or temperature as you please, then pop anything you'd like into the basket for a quick and easy meal.

The big one

via: Amazon

This baby can fry 6.3 quarts at a time, which is so much food. It takes just 30 minutes for most meals, and all you have to do is pop it in and press a button. The big feature here is the air circulation, which cooks your food incredibly quickly and makes sure you get an even fry all the way around.

You could probably just replace your oven

via: Amazon

This air fryer oven is 12.7 quarts, and honestly I'd just ditch my main oven and move to this one because it offers so many options. 11 full accessories, including rotisserie options, trays, and baskets. Tons of cooking options from frying to roasting to dehydrating. Unless you're cooking a full turkey, this fryer will meet basically all of your needs and more.
