Best air fryers 2024: From Ninja to Cosori

COSORI Air Fryer

What we thought This is the that I currently have in my kitchen, and I use it almost daily to feed my family of three. I was looking for a digital but no-fuss air fryer that was easy for beginners like my teenage son (air fryer nachos are a big hit). After doing plenty of research I finally settled on the Cosori 5.5L model,  taking into consideration the affordable price, the simplicity of use and cleaning  - the nonstick baskets are easy to wipe clean and are also dishwasher safe - and the quality based on over 42k five-star ratings on Amazon."

Ninja Speedi 10-in-1 5.7L Rapid Cooker and Air Fryer

What we thought "I enjoy cooking but there are nights - mainly during the week - that I just don't want to spend hours in the kitchen. This air fryer promised speedy dinners and it didn't disappoint. There are 10 settings that include: steam, grill, fry, and slow cook so it's just so much more than a simple air fryer, it's basically your oven AND your hob. It fits lots inside, and is ideal for approximately 3-4 portions. A big positive is the 'Speedi Meal Builder' which is on an app and it suggests recipes to make." - Leanne Bayley, Director of Lifestyle & Commerce.

Tefal Easy Fry Dual Air Fryer & Grill

What we thought "Wow! How perfect is this air fryer? My favourite thing is that you needn't worry about timings: all you have to do is sync the drawers, so everything finishes at the same time. What's more, it cooks 40% faster than an oven (no need to preheat it) and it uses up to 70% less energy. So, you can get dinner ready quicker whilst slashing your bills. Another highlight? There's Extra Crisp technology which makes it great for bacon and french fries. You can also grill steaks like a pro on the Sizzling Grill Plate, which thankfully is dishwasher safe." - Leanne Bayley, Director of Lifestyle & Commerce.

Ninja Foodi Dual Zone air fryer

What we think This viral Ninja is a huge hit with Minimalism Readers, even more so when it’s on sale. It’s very big and a bit more complex to master, but if you’re looking to cook a whole meal at once, for example both roast a chicken and fry up chips at the same time, you won’t find a more comprehensive air fryer out there. It has six settings, and you can do two different cooking settings simultaneously with both ready to serve at the same time. Fans call it ‘brilliant’ and a ‘game changer’.

COSORI Small Air Fryer

What we think As someone who owns a larger top-rated Cosori, this is the air fryer I would have bought if I hadn’t needed a bigger one. If you want a quality air fryer that doesn’t take up too much space, and that is great for 1-2 people, you can get Cosori quality in a smaller package with the 2L version.

Tower Vortx Air Fryer

What we think Not only are Tower air fryers highly rated, but they also feature one of our favourite stylish designs and come in a host of colours.

Philips Airfryer 5000 Series XXL Connected

What we think Philips air fryers have fans among Minimalism editors, and this one is just perfect for larger families. There’s just one basket, but it’s a whopping 7.1L - meaning you can serve up six portions at once.

Salter Dual Air Fryer

What we think Katherine Robinson, Senior Lifestyle Editor, says: "My mum actually has this air fryer, and she's very impressed with it. I can personally vouch for the fact that it makes oven chips taste great! She says it's easy to clean and she loves the Sync and Match function - which allows for matching cooking times on the two drawers to make sure both are ready at the same time."
