Air Fryers Buying Guide

Crispy fried food made with little or no oil is a deliciously tempting offer, and what air fryers are claimed to do. They aren't really fryers, however. They're countertop convection ovens that rely on a fan to circulate hot air to cook the food.

Consumer Reports bought and tested seven popular models, and you'll see the results in our air fryer ratings. Testers evaluated how easy it is to read and use the controls. We used a sound-level meter to do multiple measurements of how loud each air fryer gets during operation, noting the noise at its peak.

And no matter how well a countertop appliance does its job, if cleanup is a hassle, we want you to know. That's why our testers judged how easy it is to clean each air fryer's basket, interior, and exterior.
