Dash 2.6-quart air fryer

I've tested dozens of air fryers at this point. There are solid models in all sizes, but one thing I've noticed is that air fryers with smaller cooking baskets turn out crispier food. It's not hard to figure out why, since the success of the convection cooking concept relies on hot air hitting food hard and fast. In a smaller oven, the circulating air hits food harder, faster and more often so it almost always ends up closer to actual fried food, as the name promises. 

Right now, Amazon has Dash's 2.6-quart air fryer on sale for just $35. That's $25 off the normal price and just $5 more than the all-time low price we saw during Black Friday. And while you may have to cook in batches at times, this is an easy air fryer to add to your kitchen lineup and it won't crowd your counter like a bigger air fryer would.  

The compact Dash comes in six colors, but only the black and teal color variants are on sale for $35 right now. Other colors are discounted closer to $40 or $50. Or if you still prefer a larger air fryer, the 6-quart model is also on sale for $70 right now, saving you $30 compared to the usual price. And if you're in the market for a different model altogether, you can check out our roundup of all the best air fryer deals available right now.
