Everyone wants to eat healthier these days, and I’m all for anything that can make me feel good about eating French fries. Even though these devices have been around for quite some time, I’m relatively new to the scene, and if you are too, you’re sure to enjoy these greaseless fryer reviews.
Basically, what we’re talking about here are air fryer machines, and there are many types and models to choose from.
I’ve narrowed the choices down to some of the best performing models as well as the best air fryers for the money, and you can see the choices below.
But first, let’s just check out some of the advantages of these gadgets that has everyone scrambling to pick one up.
As you can see, there are a lot of features and benefits to these handy kitchen appliances, so let’s get to the greaseless fryers reviews right now!
Up first is a high-quality product from a well-known manufacturer, Phillips. The HD9240/94 XL air fryer is a solid unit that has so many advanced features it’s hard to wrap your brain around all of them.
Let’s take a quick look at some of the high points.
This greaseless fryer is essentially a small convection oven and performs very well. Most people are impressed with the ease of operation, although some say there’s a learning curve regarding the times stated on recipes and the actual cooking times. I think this is to be expected and you definitely need a trial run or two to get things cooked the way you like it.
The Avance XL Digital Air Fryer basket measures 8.375(W) X 8.25(D) X 2.75(H) – which is plenty of room for over 2 pounds of your favorite fried foods.

This is a very interesting and well-designed Big Boss fryer, which employs some great technology to get the job done. It’s different than some of the others here in the fact that it doesn’t have a pull out drawer to load, but rather a clear container that you load the food onto, and a separate tray that you can use to cook fries or veggies.
Check out these features:
As you can see from this impressive list of features, this is a solid unit for the price. While not as big as the Phillips reviewed above, you can still cook 2 of your favorite foods at the same time.
Once again, there’s a learning curve regarding cooking times and what types of food you can cook at the same time, but I think that’s true of almost any new kitchen appliance you purchase, so I’m not sure why people would mention that in the reviews.
The bowl is made of glass, which makes the Big Boss Oil-Less Fryer heavy to handle, and some have mentioned that it’s hard to clean this unit. Others also say it takes up a lot of room on the counter or when stored away on the cabinet.
Some people also say that it does best with pre-packaged foods. For example, frozen fries vs. fresh cut potatoes.
All in all, a solid unit at a decent price point.
This is another solid offering from the Phillips Corporation. They’re well known for making quality, highly thought-out products, so you can buy with confidence.
Some of the features of the Viva TurboStar Air Fryer include the following:
The food capacity can be deceiving on these units. This fryer holds 1.8 pounds, which translates to a 3 quart capacity. This is smaller than some units that are less money, but you’re paying for the Phillips name and quality, so it’s hard to argue with paying a bit more.
This unit seems ideal for 2 or maybe 3 people, but you might struggle to feed a family of 4, and even though it cooks things quickly, you might have to cook in batches to feed a larger family, which would be a pain.
You can make homemade potato chips with this unit, so it gets a thumbs-up from me!
One drawback: No power switch means you have to unplug it from the wall if you choose to shut the unit off before the time is up.
Here’s a powerful unit that is perfect for feeding a whole bunch of people with ease. The Power Air Fryer Oven cooks food juicy and crispy with no added oil, butter, or grease, and the large size means that you won’t have to cook in batches to feed the hungry folks in your family.
Here’s a list of impressive features.
This unit is on the larger side, which some people prefer, but be aware that it does take up a lot of counter space and storage room.
Also be aware that on the sales page of the Power Air Fryer Oven that you have the option to purchase the 6 quart model if you think the 8 quart is too big for your needs. Please note also that comes in a number of different colors to match your kitchen.
