Best air fryers in Singapore
1. Ninja Air Fryer Max
This baby packs a whole lot of features into a small countertop appliance – whew! The family-sized 5.2L basket can air fry, roast, bake and dehydrate, giving you guilt-free fried treats without the oil. We’re also lovin’ the Ninja Foodi Airgrill for meaty mains. If you’re the type who enjoys melt-in-your-mouth steak and juicy grilled burgers, this one delivers all that without the smoke. There’s even a dehydration function for you to experiment with fun recipes. We tested it out and we’ll never go back to regular roasting, baking or grilling!

This handy device combines the best of air frying and pressure cooking into one, helping you save counter space and reduce cleaning time. Whether you’re a family with young kids or a newly-married couple, it’s an absolute must-get for hearty home-cooked food.
