Inalsa Air Fryer Fry-Light-1400W
Many people compare the function of an air fryer to that of an oven, but I find that for food that has to be fried to a crisp, air fryers are more effective.
The Inalsa Air Fryer Fry-Light is proof of that as it functions at 1400 watts. It’s one of the quickest cooking air fryers in the market as it takes just a couple of minutes to preheat.
This is also one of the air fryers with a bigger capacity as it comes with a 4.2 litre cooking pan and a 2.9 L food basket. The basket can be removed, so you can serve the dish easily and clean it later. The air fryer turns off automatically when the basket is detached and removed for safety of the user. There is also an over heat protection to keep you safe from unexpected overloads.
Like all good quality air fryers, the Inalsa air fryer can also be used for much more than just roasting or frying your food. You can bake, grill and even cook dishes like curries and stews in it with minimal oil.
The Inalsa air fryer has a very premium look with its black and silver finish. It fits in perfectly in a modern kitchen with stylish decor. Inalsa gives you 2 years warranty on the product and the company is reputed for its excellent customer service.

The Kenstar Aster Digi 1500-Watt Oxy Fryer is a best selling appliance, also one of the more expensive ones available.

A timer can be set for 30 minutes after which it automatically shuts off. It comes with a touch sensitive panel and a neat digital display.
The Kenstar air fryer’s food basket can be cleaned easily. It has a capacity of 3.5 litres which is quite sufficient for a family of 2 or 3.
There is a downside to this air fryer – the power cord is not very long, which can be an inconvenience if your power supply is not close by.
