Ninja DZ201 Foodi 8 Quart 6-in-1 DualZone 2-Basket Air Fryer with 2 Independent Frying Baskets, Match Cook & Smart Finish to Roast, Broil, Dehydrate & More for Quick, Easy Meals, Grey

Ninja DZ201 Foodi 8 Quart 6-in-1 DualZone Air 2-Basket Fryer with 2 Independent Frying Baskets

by Ninja

SMART FINISH & MATCH COOK: DualZone Technology allows you to choose between the Smart Finish feature, which unlocks cooking 2 foods 2 ways that finish at the same time, and the and a Match Cook button to easily copy settings across zones for full 8-qt capacity.

The Ninja DZ201 Foodi 8 Quart Air Fryer offers plenty of cooking options, including air frying, convection roasting, convection baking, air convection grilling, dehydrate, and reheat. It has a 10-minute preheat time, which is slightly shorter than the 12-minute preheat time of the air fryer in our former top pick, the GoWISE 8-Quart Air Fryer. One feature we're particularly excited about is the separate two 4-cup-capacity fry baskets. This lets you cook 2 different dishes simultaneously in the same air fryer, eliminating the need to rotate your food halfway through the cooking process. There's also a separate 4-cup-capacity crisper plate, so you can fry or dehydrate foods, and, when it's dirty, you can quickly toss it in the dishwasher. The Air Fryer has 6 cooking programs: Air Fry, Air Broil, Roast, Bake, Reheat, and Dehydrate. The Air Fry program uses 360-degree air circulation to fry foods quickly and evenly. The Air Broil program uses convection heat to crisp up foods like french fries, chicken nuggets, and beef jerky, and the Roast, Bake, and Dehydrate programs use 220 and 390-degree heat to roast, bake, or dehydrate foods, respectively. The Air Fryer has 6 temperatures, ranging from 105 to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. The DZ201 Air Fryer has a 4-star rating on Amazon, with nearly 1,000 reviews and an average rating of 4.6 stars. Its 4.6-star rating on Amazon is better than the 4.2-star rating of the air fryer in our former top pick, and the air fryer in our former top pick's successor, the GoWISE 8-Quart Air Fryer, has a 4.4-star rating. The DZ201 Air Fryer's 4.6-star rating is also better than the 4.3-star rating of the Oster Air Fryer, which received a 4-star rating, and the 4-star rating of the NuWave Precision Induction Air Fryer.

EASY CLEANING: The ceramic basket is both nonstick & dishwasher safe.

The Ninja Max XL Air Fryer is an impressive machine that performs exceptionally well. The Max XL's 5.5-quart capacity is slightly larger than our pick, the Ninja Air Fryer AF1320, and its crisp technology gives it the edge, as it cooks foods up to 30 percent faster, without any oil or lard. The Max XL'scrisp technology also makes it great for baking cookies, and other baked treats, including cake. The crisp technology also works well for rehydrating dried foods, such as jerky and beef jerky, chicken strips, and french fries. The Max XL's crisp technology is also great for roasting. The air fryer's timer can be set for 0 to 30 minutes, and it uses both heat and airflow to cook foods, so you can cook foods quickly.

Instant Vortex Plus Air Fryer with ClearCook, 6 Quart, 6-in-1 Air Fry, Roast, Broil, Bake, Reheat, Dehydrate, Black

Instant Pot Instant Vortex Air Plus Fryer with ClearCook

by Instant Pot

PROVEN SAFETY FEATURES: Built-in safety features including Overheat Protection and auto-off

The instant vortex 6-in-1 air fryer is simple to use and easy to clean up after. The 6.25-quart interior is big enough to hold up to 6 servings of food, and the lid slides off to make the basket easily accessible for dumping and loading. And while we couldn't find air fryers with a larger capacity, the vortex does cook food faster than most air fryers we tested. The vortex also cooks food more evenly than air fryers with rotary dials, and in addition to its cooking functions, it also functions as a slow cooker and a dehydrator. The vortex has 5 temperature settings, and it has a defrost setting, which we used to cook chicken thighs, and it only took 30 minutes. The instructions in the full manual are easy to follow, and the unit has on-screen directions and a timer. The vortex also comes stocked with a cookbook and 3 cooking racks, so cooking is easy and convenient. The vortex also includes a 2-year warranty, which is more than 2 years longer than most of the air fryers we tested.

COSORI Air Fryer Oven Combo 5.8QT Max Large Xl Cooker (Cookbook with 100 Recipes)

by COSORI

Critically Acclaimed: COSORI Premium Air fryer (Red Dot Award, 2019) features 13 one-touch cooking functions and rapid 360 air circulation to provide crispy results using less oil

The COSORI Air Fryer Oven combo looks good, and it performs well. It’s straightforward to use, and the included recipes are delicious. The basket is nonstick, and the basket handle is removable for easy cleaning. The air fryer heats quickly, and the included recipes are easy to make. However, we found that it’s a bit larger than our previous top pick, the GoWISE USA GGR614 Air Fryer, and that it's a little louder than our previous pick. The air fryer’s temperature settings are a little weaker than those of our top pick, and we also found the temperature settings to be a little inconsistent. The air fryer also has a higher price tag than our previous pick, but the overall performance and quality are comparable.

Instant Pot Instant Vortex 4 Plus Quart Air Fryer

by Instant Pot

PROVEN SAFETY FEATURES: Built-in safety features including Overheat Protection and auto-off.

The Instant Vortex 4 quart air fryer is one of our favorites, because it's one of few air fryers priced between $50 and $70 that offers deep-frying functionality (the other being the Philips HR8510/44). However, the Vortex's lower price comes at a price: The Vortex's food isn't as evenly browned or crisp as that of the Philips', and it's rather loud when in use. Still, the Vortex's value and convenience are hard for other air fryers to match. The Vortex's nonstick basket and tray are dishwasher-safe, and it comes with two presets (French Fries and Chicken) that you can easily customize. The Vortex also boasts some impressive features, most notably its 4-portion capacity, its 6-in-1 functionality, and its one-button preset programs. The Vortex's digital touchscreen display is easy to use, and its 4-quart capacity is good for one or two people. It's also fairly loud, so you should use it only when you're alone.

Dishwasher safe parts: Easy to clean basket, crisper plate, and multi-layer rack

The Ninja Air Fryer lives up to its name. It focuses air down onto foods, which it then quickly warms, so foods are crispy without going all dried out. And because air is circulated around foods, they cook evenly, no matter what size they are. The fryer also includes a basket and crisper plate, so you can make most foods, from french fries to chicken wings. And while it can be expensive, the Ninja Air Fryer is worth every penny. It's fast, easy to use, and easy to clean. And it's very versatile. You can use it to fry, air fry, dehydrate, and roast. There're also several accessories available, including a hamburger press and meat tray. The Ninja Air Fryer also comes with a one-year limited warranty.

The air fryer XL is a terrific choice for anyone who wants an easy, healthy way to fry, grill, bake, roast, and rotisserie food. The 7 preset cooking programs let you cook a classic meal, a juicy burger, or a deep-dish pizza, and the LCD touch screen makes operation easy. The XL is 5.8 quarts, which is big for a countertop air fryer, and the built-in stand helps keep it balanced, even during cooking. The XL's controls, basket, and lid are all made of stainless steel, so they're easy to clean, and the nonstick basket slides in and out easily. The XL is very powerful, with 1700 watts of cooking power, so it's quick and highly efficient. We also like the XL's large cooking capacity, which makes it easy to cook large quantities of food, and its non-stick coating makes cooking healthier. The XL comes with a one-year warranty, and it's ETL and UL certified for safety. The XL also has an audible beeper to let you know when it's finished cooking, and it comes with instructions and a cookbook.

CHEFMAN Large Air Fryer Max XL 8 Qt

by Chefman

ELEVATE YOUR COUNTERTOP: With the sleek, square shape and nonstick stainless steel finish, this air fryer was designed with your kitchen counter in mind. The compact, easy to store build makes this the ideal fryer for families with big appetites and limited counter space. The dishwasher safe basket allows for easy cleaning and quick storing, saving space on your counter; perfect for any small kitchen, dorm, office, RV, and more!

The Belkin Boost Up is a handy device that, when plugged in, will transfer power from your wall outlet to any device with USB charging capabilities (phones, tablets, and portable hard drives, for example). It's the perfect size for carrying around the house, and it's fast and easy to use. After opening the package, you simply plug the adapter into an outlet, plug the device into the adapter, and start charging. It's helpful to note that Belkin sells the Boost Up as two separate products: the adapter and the charger. The adapter plugs into the wall, and the charger plugs into the adapter. The charger is the size of a brick (it's about 2.7 pounds), but it's fairly small and portable. The adapter is about the size of a cigarette lighter, and it's small enough to carry in my purse or pocket. The Belkin Boost Up charger has about as much power as my old cell phone charger, but it charges tablets and other USB-charged devices much faster than an older, slow charger. The Belkin Boost Up has 2.1 amps of power, which is enough to bring an iPad 3 from 0% to 100% in about 2 hours. The Belkin Boost Up is faster than many other power converters we tested, and it's also less expensive. The Belkin Boost Up is convenient for charging phones and tablets while away from home, and it's small enough to carry in my purse or pocket.
