June here, reporting from the Delish test kitchen. I recently took it upon myself to put all the most popular air fryers on the market to the test—and boy, was it a challenge. To choose the best ones, I tested two dozen recipes, each in three different models using the same temperature and time in order to determine each model’s efficiency: How does it cook? How easy is it to operate and to clean? Is it worth the price tag? Overall, I was impressed by how many of these performed: Several models excelled in evenly heating, cooking, and creating a nice, crunchy, golden crust on different foods.
Scroll down to see my top picks ranked in order of how well they worked overall. Each has a descriptor, too, from the best budget buy to the best air fryer for small spaces, meant to help you find the best fryer for you.
