If you’re still sceptical about getting an air-fryer, know that it’s a cooking craze that’s here to stay. Fans of this ingenious cooking tool love it for its healthier promise: oil-less, mess-free “frying”. That’s because the neat “health-fryer” as it’s so-often called, whips up hot air to “fry” food to a delicious cracking crunch, that means, fries, eggs, veggies, golden fried chicken and more. Here are 8 air-fryers to consider.

On first look, the Airbot 3L Air Fryer blends in perfectly with designer kitchens with a sleek and classy design. There are 4 styles of cooking available: fried, barbeque, dessert and baking. That’s right, you can create versions of your favourite donuts, cinnamon rolls and even cheesecake with this Air Fryer! Many of its features come with a 10-year guarantee, including its easy-to-operate dials on the top. It comes with triple laminated coatings of non-stick frying, which makes it a breeze to clean. You don’t have to wait long for this Air Fryer to heat up – it gets from 0 to 200°C in just one minute. Hungry for some Sweet Potato Fries yet?

2. Mayer 5.5L Air Fryer

Mayer is a homegrown household brand in Singapore and it’s no surprise they have 10 different air fryers under their name alone! We’ve picked out their most futuristic looking Mayer 5.5L Digital Air Fryer, which has a sensor touch control panel and 60 minutes timer. At 5.5 L, its large size is great for whipping up a Crispy Fried Chicken with Sambal or Prata Curry Puff for bigger families. The steeper price point compared to its competitors does come with added functionalities. You can expect 7 different presents for cooking, including ones to cook your poultry, seafood and fries to perfection. Safety-wise, we like their overheating protection (who wants to clean out a burnt air fryer?!) and the automatic cut-off switch.

3. Cornell 4L Air Fryer

Another well-known cooking appliance brand is Cornell from USA, which has a mid-range Cornell 4L Air Fryer for your healthy cooking needs. Compared to other low-wattage Air Fryers, Cornell’s 1300W coil-like heating element allows better and even heat distribution. That’s right think of your Pisang Nuggets, which are made to be crispy on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside. There’s a detachable basket to unload all those goodies, which also makes it easy to clean once you are done.

4. Philips 800g Air Fryer

Did you know Philips was the pioneer of the Air Fryer? That’s right – In 2010, they introduced this amazing new technology to the world. It won the top five inventions award at the prestigious Internationale Funkausstellun (IFA). It has received rave reviews from households all over the world and is considered one of the best in terms of the evenness of cooking and crispiness. We picked out this little Philips Air Fryer from their expansive range as it works well for smaller families or individuals who don’t have as much kitchen space. Their patented Rapid Air Technology was the initial invention that led to all of us being able to enjoy deep fried food without the health costs. Their Air Fryer circulates hot air around a metal mesh cooking basket and its starfish design on the bottom ensures air circulation. You definitely get what you pay for with the trusted quality from Philips. We are ready for some crunchy snacks now! Are you?

5. PowerPac 3.5L Air Fryer

The PowerPac Air Fryer 3.5L is definitely made for the lazier cooks, as many of its parts are dishwasher safe. This low to mid-range Air Fryer is really well-reviewed by many home cooks online, with most of them praising it’s ease of use. We would love to try out the infamous Korean Fried Chicken on this affordable Air Fryer – as many past product reviewers have done!

6. Roman 10L Deli Air Fryer

With a 10L capacity, this behemoth of an Air Fryer will definitely serve all your party needs. Yes, this Roman 10L Deli Air Fryer can fit 25-30 Vietnamese Spring Rolls for your celebration needs, and feed up to an average of 15 people when used at max capacity. Throw a small whole chicken or turkey in there to make an XL version of Soy Fried Peppery Chicken even! We singled out this Air Fryer as unlike its drawer compartment competitors, it pops open just like a modern rice cooker, and you can watch your food being cooked. It is more difficult to check on your food for drawer-type Air Fryers as you have to remove the drawer entirely to determine how cooked the food is. So while this open-top Air Fryer is less portable, it makes up for it with a see-through cover.

7. Joyoung 3.5L Air Fryer

The Joyoung 3.5L Air Fryer embodies the classic round design of the latest Air Fryers. Like many other Air Fryers, Joyoung markets this as a multi-cooker, one that can be used to bake, grill and roast. Praised by internet users for its near silent cooking, you could easily whip up a Lemongrass Roasted Chicken or grilled Thai Gai Bing in the comforts of your home.

8. EuropAce 3.5L Air Fryer
