✅ #1 Top Pick: Philips Viva Airfryer Review
Philips is probably the best when it comes to Airfryers — they’ve sold 1M Viva Fryer units and have most of the air fryers you’ll read about on my best air fryers list.

Light-weight & portable the Viva Airfryer weighs just over 16-pounds. It also uses Philip’s Rapid Air Technology for heating evenly – it’s just like a deep fryer (but much healthier!)

Why are Air Fryers healthy?
Using a traditional fryer requires oil, fat, and extra calories.
Fortunately, owning an air fryer will give you the same crispy and delicious taste as a traditional deep fryer, but your food is less grease-soaked and therefore, healthier. As the Philips review noted, an fryer can remove 80% of the oil fat you’ll typically have using a deep fryer.
Two reasons for this:
#1.) You’ll be using less oil (sometimes zero oil)
#2.) Air fryers remove a lot more of the excess fat in your meats
