This article was updated in October 2021 to update winners and replace any sold out or discontinued picks, including our previous Best Value pick. We also added new-comers including the Ninja Foodie Smart XL Air Fry Oven, Power XL Air Fryer Grill, June Premium Oven and the Instant Pot Omni Plus Air Fryer Toaster Oven. Our picks are still based on most recent tests led by Nicole Papantoniou, deputy director of the Good Housekeeping Institute Kitchen Appliances Lab.


Air fryer toaster ovens are truly multifunctional, combining the best of air fryers and toaster ovens; most can typically bake, roast and broil in addition to air frying to make food super crispy with less oil than traditional frying methods. These do-it-all appliances offer a large cooking space on one or more racks for air frying in a single layer (great for proteins), and some even come with rotisserie attachment for whole chickens and other roasts. That means fresh-made chicken wings in about 20 minutes and crispy, air-fried doughnuts in less than ten.

Air fryers and convection ovens both cook food faster than traditional ovens by relying on a fan to circulate hot air, but the main difference between the two is that air fryers make food crispier and work even quicker than convection ovens, thanks to the placement and size of their fans. Though marketed as air fryers, not all air fryer toaster ovens are equipped with the same high-heating elements and large fan needed to circulate hot air quickly and efficiently — and they're not all created equally.

In the Good Housekeeping Institute Kitchen Appliances Lab, we tested 15 different air fryer toaster ovens for their ability to air fry, bake, broil, and, of course, toast. That means we air fried more than 15 pounds of wings and frozen fries to see how well they crisped up, as well as how quickly and evenly. In each one, we baked a cake, roasted a chicken, broiled a steak, and toasted more than 180 slices in total to make sure each model could live up to all of your toaster oven needs.

Here are the best air fryer toaster ovens you can buy in 2021, including picks from testing and brands we trust:

This air fryer toaster oven air fries the quickest with no additional preheat time. It made chicken wings super crispy in 20 minutes, as well as fries in even less time. Its power is impressive and is comparable to the best free-standing air fryers. Just keep an eye on food when experimenting for the first few time to prevent accidental burning. It uses a basket that sits atop the broiling pan to air fry, which prevents grease from dripping onto the elements and makes cleanup easy; all accessories are dishwasher safe. 

Bread toasted well and evenly, too, in addition to cake that baked quickly with just a small dome that needed to be trimmed. Frozen pizza cooked in no time, as did broiled steak. The oven comes with a user guide loaded with cooking charts and recipes; plus, the oven is programmed with more than 10 settings and five that are specific to air fry. The ability to dual cook is a unique feature: It  allows you to program the oven for two different times and temps at once, useful for starting foods at a high temp to crisp up the skin and lowering to finish cooking inside.  

  • Great air frying capability
  • Cooks quickly and powerfully
  • Loaded with pre-set cooking temps and times

  • Cooks quicker than you'd expect
  • Control panel can be a little tricky to use

Hamilton Beach
Hamilton Beach wayfair.com
$81.33

This model is comparable to the previously tested best value Hamilton Beach Sure-Crisp  which was small but mighty— as we were super impressed with its air frying abilities. This under $100 version has a rack big enough to fit a 12-inch frozen pizza and includes a metal mesh basket for air frying, a broil rack and baking tray. While this version features manual dials and isn't digital like most of our other top picks— the oven has a 30 min timer, a stay on setting  and auto shutoff. 

  • Small and compact
  • Great price

  • Mechanical dials are not as precise as digital controls

$303.00

Ninja’s Air Fryer Max XL  was named our best overall air fryer and their products perform very well during our testing. This 10-in-1 oven allows you to air fry, bake, whole roast, dehydrate and more. While we haven't tested this exact model, we're confident from previous testing that this will live up to the rest. The XL smart oven  is big enough to cook a family sized meal at once by air frying on the top level with the included air fryer rack and one of the additional baking pans below it. It also comes with five additional accessories including one more pan with broiling accessory that can double as a second frying rack. The large fan located in the rear of the oven is optimal for circulation and even heating. It also features a built-in probe that can measure and track food temperatures on the control panel with a timer so you can get the exact doneness level you like.

  • Multi-level cooking
  • Multiple cooking settings

Cosori

$199.99
$169.99 (15% off)

All of the tests we conducted in the Cosori Air Fryer Toaster Oven Combo, from air fry to bake, received top scores. It produced crispy wings and fries, toasted bread well and evenly and made a very good cake that was evenly browned and level. It even crisped up the steak on the broil function, which is a feat that impresses us when done well. It comes with high-quality accessories, including an extra large baking/broiling pan, an air fryer rack, and rotisserie spit for chicken and other roasts. The one downside is wings took about 20 minutes longer to cook than other air fryer toaster ovens tested, and an extra six minutes to preheat. The results, however, were worth it: Crispy, juicy, and even.

A large 13-inch by 13-inch air fryer rack means more air frying at once without having to toss ingredients a lot during cooking.

The control panel is easy to read and very intuitive – we barely needed to refer to the user's guide when using for the first time.

How to find the best air fryer toaster for you
doubleline

✔️Size: Most toaster ovens can fit a whole, four-pound chicken, but if you're tight on space, you might not need the extra height. If you mostly plan on using your toaster oven for bread and heating foods, a compact model is sufficient. If you're looking to cook in it, or use it as a second oven, consider a larger one; some can fit a whole turkey.

✔️Dials: Toaster ovens can have digital or mechanical controls. We recommend digital for more precise cooking control when it comes to setting the temperature and timer. If you don't mind guessing, or keeping an additional timer close by, mechanical dials will save you money.

✔️Racks and accessories: At minimum, all toaster ovens should come with at least one rack and one baking/broiling pan. Air fryer toaster ovens usually include an additional basket or rack for air frying. The baskets usually sit on the baking/broiling pan and provide safe cooking at high temperatures as well as easy maneuverability and cleanup. If the basket cannot fit on the pan, a pan can usually be placed in the position below the air frying rack; this style makes it tricky to remove the air frying rack from the toaster oven to check on food or remove without dripping grease everywhere. Some air fryer toaster ovens offer the option to purchase more air fryer racks (that can also be used for dehydrating in most cases) to use at the same time, and some include a rotisserie attachment.
