I’m Ready to Get One!
WOW. Y’all are passionate about air fryers, like extreamly passionate… and I love it! Last week on instagram stories and on the Ashley Brooke Facebook Group I asked if you had a favorite air fryer and I got hundreds or responses. I so appreciate the commitment to the air fryer, and you guys have officially influenced me!
So I thought I’d round up the top recommended air fryers I received along with some feedback, so if you too were on the edge of buying one, that this post will officially have you click the “order” button!
Here are a few things to keep in mind when buying an air fryer:
Price point – from what I’ve seen there are different price ranges and the ones that were recommended the most range from Dash Compact Air Fryer $57 to the Breville Smart Oven $349, but most were in the $120-$200 range like the Ninja Foodi Max XL at $129.
Size matters – Almost unanimously I heard that buying the LARGEST version of an air fryer is the way to go. The small ones hold almost nothing and it’s not worth it! I heard over and over again that the Ninja Foodi Max XL $129 was the way to go here.
Space is precious – The one downfall I heard over and over is that it’s clunky and takes up a lot of room on the counter. Many of you said that it didn’t matter because you used it 1-2xs a day, but it’s definitely something to consider. I love this one that is a toaster/air fryer and flips up to save counter space, Ninja Flip-Away at $199.
Multifunctional – There are so many air fryers the do more than air fry, like toast, pressure cook, etc. Like the multi-functional products, it makes more sense if you are cooking a lot. Check out the Ninja Foodi 7-in-1 $149.
Hopefully this post is helpful. I can tell you that it really had me thinking! I’m honestly torn between the Ninja Flip-Away, the Breville Smart Oven, and the Ninja Foodi Max XL! I just need to decide if I want it to double as a toaster oven (so it occupies the space of my current toaster oven) or if I’m good with storing it.
I’d love to know your thoughts!
