If you’re feeling overwhelmed by kitchen appliances and in need of some extra space, the rise of multifunction air fryers might catch your attention. These machines claim to not only air fry but also have a range of other capabilities, such as roasting, grilling, slow cooking, pressure cooking, and even steam and rice cooking. With prices ranging from $89 for a basic air fryer to as high as $700 for top-of-the-line models, is the investment worth it?
Some of these air fryers boast an impressive number of functions, going up to 12 in some cases, from everyday cooking tasks to niche functions like making yogurt or dehydrating jerky. However, do you really need all these features, or will you find yourself primarily using it for air frying? Choosing the right model depends on your cooking style and preferences.
While multifunction air fryers can replace several appliances and provide more space in your kitchen, they do come with a significant footprint and require storage for their accessories. Models vary in size and shape, with some resembling a traditional multi-cooker and others resembling a benchtop oven. Finding the model that best suits your needs is crucial.
Product mash-ups can be hit or miss, but when it comes to combining air frying with other cooking functions, the results are generally positive. According to Fiona Mair, CHOICE home economist, these multifunction air fryers perform just as well as standalone appliances. While they may be pricier upfront, they can save you money in the long run compared to buying each appliance separately.
Before investing in a multifunction air fryer, be clear about your cooking needs and habits. Consider factors such as the size of your household, your cooking style, and the storage space available. If you only desire crispy food, a standalone air fryer may be sufficient, but if you want the versatility of multiple cooking functions, a multifunction air fryer could be the right choice.
