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-quality fried food at home without all the added grease or fat.
However, the downside of many air fryers is their considerable size. If you live in a small condo, or are pressed for storage, this tool can take up its fair share of counter space.
Luckily, we’ve found a customer-favourite air fryer that’s great for small spaces — and it's on sale from just $34 at Amazon Canada.
Save 15%: Dash Compact Air Fryer
Giving you the ability to enjoy a healthier twist on some of your favourite fried foods, this Dash Air Fryer is perfect for small kitchens, thanks to its compact 1.2-litre/2-quart capacity. Though it may be small, this air fryer is still able to cook one dozen chicken wings, or up to 1lb of French fries in one go.
The appliance uses AirCrisp technology to rapidly circulate hot air, which reduces the need for oil and lowers overall cooking times by up to 80 per cent.
To make mealtime even easier, its interior basket is designed with a non-stick surface and is dishwasher-safe for easy clean-up.
'Great little air fryer'
An Amazon shopper favourite, this Dash air fryer has racked up an average rating of 4.4 stars, as well as more than 10,000 five-star reviews.
"Great little air fryer," raves one five-star reviewer, who shared that they live alone and use this Dash machine "2-3 times a week, if not more."
It's the "perfect size for one," writes another shopper, who noted that they purchased this air fryer because they "wanted something compact and efficient."
'Great value for money'
In addition to delivering quick and easy meals, Amazon shoppers have raved that this air fryer is "very easy to use and easy to clean."
Shoppers have also been impressed by its affordable price tag that offers "great value for money" — especially at its current sale price.
Despite hundreds of glowing reviews, some users note that the compact size of this air fryer isn't as powerful as they hoped. Some reviewers found that you "constantly have to stir the food or it cooks unevenly."
If you’re looking to master the art of air frying and only have a small space to do it, this Dash Compact Air Fryer is an affordable buy — especially at its current sale price. 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.
