This is our absolute favorite air fryer after testing more than a dozen, which isn't surprising considering we already love all things Instant Pot. Our test kitchen found that this air fryer cooked with more power than the competition and delivered crisp, even results every time. The 6-quart size is perfect for cooking for a family (it can hold a four-pound chicken!), and the touchscreen interface is so easy to use. This air fryer will be on sale for $49 at Walmart starting Thursday, Nov. 28.
Before the Instant Vortex came along, the Crux model held the top spot in our air fryer test. It's the perfect size for most home cooks, and is impressively efficient. Our test kitchen found this model easy to use, and the lightweight basket makes it a breeze to toss food halfway through cooking for even, golden results. Coming in at under $50 (the best price you'll see for this model), this Crux air fryer is a perfect Secret Santa gift for the foodie in your life.
Less Than $100
After testing, Food Network Kitchen chefs deemed this air fryer the best option for a small kitchen.

Whether you’re crisping up frozen French fries or chicken, we know you’ll love this air fryer.
Save $50 on this Food Network-favorite air fryer at Amazon, which is starting Black Friday pricing early. Our test kitchen felt like this model was particularly sturdy and found that it was the perfect size for cooking for two people. You can also use this air fryer as a dehydrator, so you can make everything from craisins to kale chips.
Less Than $200
Our test kitchen loves this Cuisinart model because it also works like a convection oven, which is popular among chefs looking to cut down on cooking time. Whether you're frying chicken wings or baking cupcakes, you can cook (almost) anything with this four-in-one machine. This 15% off price is the best we've seen this so far this holiday season.
