Air fryers have been steadily growing in popularity over the past few years. And now more than ever, people are looking for ways to get their favourite restaurant-style fried food at home — bonus points if it’s without the grease.

But the downside of many air fryers is their size. If you live in a small city apartment, or are pressed for kitchen space, this tool can take up quite a lot of room. Luckily, we’ve found a sworn-by air fryer that’s great for small spaces — plus, it’s nearly 25% off right now.

What is it?

Giving you the ability to enjoy a healthier twist on your favourite fried foods, this DASH Compact Air Fryer, from Wayfair, is perfect for small kitchens due to its 1.2L capacity. This compact air fryer requires little set up: simply plug in, set the desired time and temperature and go.

With preset options for chicken and french fries, some of your favourite fast-food meals are just a button away. What’s even better is the cooking compartment is completely dishwasher safe.

How does it work?

Air frying is a popular way to enjoy fried foods without the oil, with a cult following praising this kitchen appliance. You can make delicious comfort dishes for less calories, including sweet potato fries, chicken wings and gluten free cake. With recipes for every meal of the day, you’ll find an abundance of options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. 

Using AirCrisp technology, this fryer rapidly circulates air, cooking ingredients to maintain the signature crisp of fried foods while eliminating the usual oil and reducing cooking time. With an auto-shutoff feature, the DASH Compact Air Fryer is a safe alternative to pan frying. A healthier take on fried food, air frying is an easy way to cook meals the whole family will love. 

What people are saying

With a 4.6 star rating on more than 1,300 reviews, this air fryer is loved by customers as it’s easy to use, makes commonly fried foods more healthy and cuts cooking time in half.

“Absolutely love this purchase! So far I have used it every day since I brought it – and have cooked everything from breakfast to dinners in it. You can actually taste the difference in the foods you make and it saves you from using the oils that would have been in them had you made it on the stove,” says one shopper. “Another convenience with this is it cuts cooking time in half! Highly recommend this product.” 

“This little air fryer is the perfect size for me. I have used it twice this week, and my chicken wings were crispy and done in minutes. It’s easy to clean and doesn’t take up a lot of space. I think I’m going to enjoy this and use it a lot this summer,” adds another.

While customers are quick to recommend this product, some warn that it is quite small due to its compact nature and won’t serve more than two people. 

“I love this air fryer. It is just the right size for preparing a snack for two,” says a reviewer.

"I love this little air fryer! The colour looks just like advertised and it is the perfect size if you are cooking for one or two people. It cooks a variety of foods quickly and deliciously, and clean up is a breeze!” adds another.

The verdict

If you’re looking to master the art of air frying and only have a small space to do it, this compact air fryer is an affordable buy — especially on sale. However, if you’re a household of more than two people, you may want to consider a larger appliance as this one stays true to its compact promise.
