While air fryers may all seem similar, they're not all the same, especially when it comes to the technology they use to cook your food.

If you're looking to eat healthier but still maintain all the flavour and the right texture in your food, look out for air fryers that can cook your food with little to no added oil and are able to drain fat. That way, you can still enjoy your favourite meals guilt-free!

2. Those with busy lifestyles should look for something that can help you simplify your cooking and save time

A huge plus point for air fryers is that they make cooking super easy. Even total kitchen noobs will be able to whip up something in no time at all! It's a great time saver for busy parents and working professionals too, especially when you're working from home.

To take full advantage of this, compare the modes and settings of different air fryers when you're considering which one to buy.

Look out for ones that have lots of preprogrammed options to make your time in the kitchen totally hassle-free. Some even have specific settings for particular popular dishes, so all you have to do is press a button and let the air fryer do its thing!

3. Opt for trusted brands that are known for their quality products and high safety standards

This is particularly important if you have kids in the house, especially if they love helping out in the kitchen. It can be super fun to cook with your little ones, but you gotta keep them safe.

If made with low-quality materials or without the proper research and development, the outer part of the air fryer can heat up when in use, and become very hot to the touch. This could lead to potential burns, ouch!

So, when shopping for an air fryer, make sure to ask lots of questions about the safety features, and try to test it out or get a demonstration if you can.

4. Look for an air fryer that can cook in more ways than one

It may be called an air FRYer, but some can do so much more than just frying. Look out for models that let you do other types of cooking too, like steaming, roasting, grilling, and even baking!

This kind of air fryer is particularly great for those Masterchefs-in-the-making who loveeee creating all kinds of dishes. An air fryer doesn't have to limit your cooking, it can actually help you do a lot more with less effort.

5. Consider what capacity/size best suits your needs

Since it's important to not overcrowd the air fryer basket, choosing the right one for you is all about how much food you're gonna be cooking and how many people you're gonna be cooking for.

If you have a big family and often need to serve up big portions, then opt for larger air fryers so you won't have to cook in multiple batches. Some air fryers are even big enough to fit a whole chicken! But if you're living on your own or have a small family, then a smaller air fryer should be enough.
