2. Best for Versatility: Instant Vortex Plus Air Fryer Oven 


  • Multifunctional appliance
  • Sleek design
  • Intuitive controls
  • Easy to use
  • Easy to clean


  • Relatively small 9.5-litre capacity
  • Some reviewers complain of the oven emitting an acrid smell with initial use

From the makers of the Instant Pot, the Instant Vortex air fryer oven is another stellar appliance that’s a must-have for your kitchen. It wears many hats, and can roast, broil, bake, reheat, dehydrate and even cook up a full rotisserie chicken. With seven built-in smart programmes to cut down time and effort, the air fryer oven uses EvenCrisp technology to produce food that’s crisp outside and tender inside. Reviewers appreciate that they can fit two cooking trays in the oven and make multiple meals simultaneously, although portions sizes are small compared to others on this list, since the oven only manages a volume of 9.5 litres. Rest assured, it’s easy to clean, since most parts are dishwasher-safe.

Bonus: Buy with 0% installments and pay Dh72.70 for 12 months with select banks.

Warranty: Amazon offers 1-year extended warranty for Dh52, and 2-year extended warranty for Dh 73.

3. Best Value: Nutricook Air Fryer Oven 


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


  • 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.

4. Best for Multi-layer Cooking: Ninja DT201 Foodi 10-in-1 XL Pro 


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


  • 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: Russell Hobbs Express Air Fryer Mini Oven


  • Space-saving design
  • Choose from five cooking modes
  • Bake pan and rack included
  • Two-year manufacturer warranty included


  • Reviewers say the oven can burn food if not watched periodically

A compact air fryer oven that can cook up a storm in minutes for a family of four, this Russell Hobbs device is easy on your wallet, too. The 12.6-litre, stainless-steel oven has an easy-to-use mechanical control system with five cooking options - air fry, bake, grill, toast and keep warm. Reviewers say it's spacious enough to fit a 12-inch pizza comfortably, and that it produces evenly cooked food, with the crispy texture you’re looking for, all with 80 per cent less fat than deep-frying. But reviewers advice on keeping an eye on the food, or setting the temperature at about 20 degrees lower than what's recommended, since the oven tends to get hot very quickly.

Warranty: The manufacturer provides a 2-year warranty, plus and extra year when you register the product online.
