Our team has picked different air fryers and used them in our testing kitchen to give you a competitive review. There are many factors to keep in mind before choosing the perfect air fryer for your large family. First of all, we will shortly discuss about those key factors.

1. Size:

You might listen to this phrase “size doesn’t matter”. Well, size might not matter for other things but for air fryers size do really matters. Air fryer’s capacity is measured in quart or litre. For 2 or 3 people below 5-quart size is preferable. If you use these air fryers for a large family you might need to cook in multiple batches which is not preferable. If you do not want to cook in multiple batches then our suggestion will be to buy an air fryer which size is at least more than 5 quart. For 5-6 people this size will be enough. Some air fryer’s size is around 20 quart. These are perfect for a large size family.

2. Type :

Type of air fryer is another thing to be considered before buying. Air fryers can be of many types like basket type, paddle type, combo type, oven type and etc. Among these Countertop convection oven type air fryers are our choice for a large family. Oven type air fryers have large capacity than other type. And multiple racks allow to cook different items at the same time.

3. Function:

When buying an air fryer you also should look at the functions offered by an air fryer. For a larger family multifunctional air fryers are more preferable. With a multi-functioned air fryer you will have the opportunity to try different types of recipes like roasting a turkey or baking a pie. Some fryers offer not only frying but also baking, grilling, roasting and other types of cooking. So you will definitely want to choose a fryer which offers you versatility in cooking option.

4. Time:

Cooking time is not an ignorable factor when buying an air fryer. You will definitely want to choose a fryer which can cook faster. Though fast cooking time means increase of price, our suggestion will be to buy a fryer which provide a decent time of cooking.

5. Operating method:

Most of us don’t consider this point and get troubled when using the fryer. Some fryers are automatic. For the rest of them, you will need to stir or flip the food when cooking. You have to choose according to your need. If you do not have the time to flip or stir the food, then you should choose the ones having automatic shaking or spinning feature. Some of the fryers doesn’t even need stirring or flipping. You can also choose them. Another thing to consider is cleaning the fryer after cooking. Our suggestion is to select a fryer which is easy to clean.

So, considering all those factors, our testing team has selected 7 best air fryers for using in a large family. So, let’s roll to list without further interruptions.
