2. Best Smart Appliance: COSORI Air Fryer Toaster 

Pros

  • Large, 25-litre capacity
  • Sleek design
  • Intuitive controls
  • Excellent smart capabilities
  • Reliable, consistent baking and frying

Cons

  • Some functions require pre-heating

From crispy fries to evenly baked cakes, COSORI Air Fryer Toaster produces reliable, consistent results, no matter what you’re cooking. The appliance comes with 10 convenient cooking pre-sets, which remove the guesswork from timings and temperature settings, so you can bake pizzas and cookies or even use the ‘fermentation’ function during your culinary adventures. The best part, however, is its smart functionality. Download the free VeSync app on your smartphone, and you can use it to access voice control and even monitor your food remotely.

3. Best Value: Nutricook Air Fryer Oven 

Pros

  • Produces evenly cooked food
  • Large 12-litre capacity
  • Space-saving design
  • Easy to clean

Cons

  • No reset button
  • No broil or roast function

While most air fryer toaster ovens tend to be wider, the Nutricook Air Fryer Oven is a narrower fit – perfect for smaller kitchens. The appliance works as an air fryer, convection oven, rotisserie oven and dehydrator, all-in-one. However, do note that it doesn’t come with a broiling or roasting option. Nutricook’s Rapid Air Technology uses 360-degree heat circulation to make everything super crispy on the outside, while retaining moisture on the inside. And with a large, 12-litre capacity, that means you’ll get juicy, crispy whole rotisserie chickens every time!

Bonus: Buy with 0% installments and pay Dh43.08 for 12 months with select banks.

Warranty: Amazon offers 1-year extended warranty for Dh28, and 2-year extended warranty for Dh 39.20.

Pros

  • Fast pre-heat and cook time
  • Powerful convection
  • Choose from 10 settings
  • Includes six high-quality accessories
  • Large capacity

Cons

  • Expensive
  • Exterior can get very hot to the touch

There’s nothing small about the Ninja DT201 – it’s a spacious air fryer toaster oven that gives you plenty of cooking options, and multiple-rack roasting opportunities. It even has a unique setting called Air Roast, which allows you to cook two foods on two different racks simultaneously. The Ninja’s digital control panel is well designed and easy to use. Although it does go into an automatic pre-heat setting when you plug in your preferences, it’s fast – pre-heat lasts for just 90 seconds before it automatically switches to cooking mode. The appliance comes with two sheet pans, two wire racks, an air fry basket and a roast tray crumb.

5. Best Budget: Geepas Air Fryer Oven 

Pros

  • Space saving design
  • Choose from nine settings

A compact air fryer oven that can cook up a storm in minutes for a family of four, this Geepas device is easy on your wallet, too. The 10-litre, stainless-steel oven has an easy-to-use digital touchscreen with nine pre-set cooking menus. If you’re unsure how long you need to cook your fish, or steak, just click on the corresponding image on the screen and it’ll take care of the rest. Using hot turbo air rotation technology, this appliance produces evenly cooked food, with the crispy texture you’re looking for, all with 80 per cent less fat than deep-frying. There are eight accessories included – baking and dehydrator trays, a chicken rotisserie spear, round rotating basket and even a kebab set (with eight small skewers).
