Choosing the best air fryer oven comes down to four main factors.

Capacity

Those cooking for larger households or who want to cook multiple foods at once should consider one of the larger options, such as the Kalorik oven.

Because it can be difficult to tell how large the cooking area is for a given air fryer oven just from looking at photos, you may want to check the website, Amazon page, or product reviews. See how many racks can be used to cook at once, how large a chicken or turkey will fit in the oven, or how many slices of bread can fit on the rack.

These can all help you determine if an air fryer oven would be an appropriate size for your family.

Price

Keep in mind that most air fryer ovens on this list range in price from $100–$300. If you’re looking to spend toward the lower end of that range, your options may be limited.

Additional features

You’ll also want to consider additional features. Many products are large enough to cook whole chickens rotisserie-style and come with the accessories to do so. Likewise, many have a temperature setting low enough to use them as a dehydrator.

Customer reviews

Finally, be sure to check the reviews. If you see patterns in the negative reviews, this is something you’ll want to take notice of — especially if they’re about safety.

How does an air fryer oven work?

Air fryer ovens work by using fans to circulate hot air (typically from a heat lamp inside of the unit) rapidly through a small area, cooking food and allowing it to get crispy.

This allows you to achieve a texture and crispiness similar to frying, without using as much oil.

Are air fryers sanitary?

Yes, air fryer ovens are sanitary and safe to use.

Some users say that oily residue can build up on the interior of their air fryer oven that can be difficult to remove, but wiping it down after each use (after the device has cooled) should help.

What can you cook in an air fryer oven?

You can cook a wide variety of foods in an air fryer oven. Air fryers are often used to cook meats like pork chops and chicken breasts, and they can also be used to cook frozen packaged foods such as french fries and chicken nuggets.

These countertop appliances often have a number of other functions in addition to air frying, making it possible to bake cake and bread, make toast, cook pizzas, roast vegetables, cook roasts and whole chickens, and dehydrate fruits, vegetables, and meats.

Many people use air fryer ovens as an alternative to a regular oven. Depending on the size and capabilities of your air fryer oven, you may be able to cook anything you would in a regular oven.

How do you clean an air fryer oven?

Allow the device to cool. Remove the racks, pans, and drip tray you used during cooking and wash them as you would your regular dishes.

Using a damp cloth, wipe down the exterior and interior of the air fryer oven to remove crumbs and grease.

It’s a good idea to do this after each use to prevent excess grease buildup that will be more difficult to clean later.

Air fryer ovens are a great way to get the benefits of an air fryer, often with many extra features and a larger capacity than standard air fryers.

They come in a variety of sizes and offer numerous features, with many usable as a rotisserie, air fryer, and dehydrator all in one.
