If you’re looking for a compact kitchen appliance to bridge that gap between a microwave and a conventional oven, a pod-shaped air fryer might do the trick. An air fryer crisps up food like an oven does, but functions quickly and conveniently, like a microwave. We’ve tested dozens of models since 2017, and we think that the Philips Premium Airfryer HD9741/96 is the best one out there. It’s easy to use, cooks food more consistently and evenly than other pod-shaped air fryers, and doesn’t take up too much counter space.

We recommend
Cosori Pro LE Air Fryer, a budget air fryer

Cosori Pro LE Air Fryer

A budget air fryer
This air fryer was the best model we tested in the $100 range. It shares some of the features we liked in the Philips, such as a large, 5-quart square basket and a streamlined control panel, though it doesn’t cook as evenly.
Budget friendly
Instant Mini Vortex 4-in-1, a small-but-mighty air fryer

Instant Mini Vortex 4-in-1

A small-but-mighty air fryer
The Instant Mini Vortex is small, powerful, and one of the cheapest models we tested. While the wee basket can fit only serving size at a time, the machine circulates heat fairly well and manages to cook food without dehydrating it.
