What do you do when your household loves hot chips and nuggets, but not with a side serve of health problems? Buy an air fryer!

Our air fryers buying guide will help you decide which type you need, and how we test air fryers reveals what goes on in the CHOICE kitchen lab.

  • are easiest to use and clean
  • cost the least to run.
