Default Air Fryer - Help me decide, please!!!

I have been researching air fryers recently and just keep hitting my head against a brick wall. There are so very many choices, and so many good ratings, and I cannot make a decision about which one to buy. I don't really need a large capacity one (they are so darn big!) but I don't want to mess up by getting one too small. I need help!!! Does anyone here use an air fryer? I surely would appreciate your experiences and recommendations.

I love my air fryer. Use it at least four times weekly. Started with a small (3 qt) but wanted a larger one. Bought the Paula Deen 8 qt and love it. Roast a whole chicken, better than in the oven. Great for everything that you can do in an oven without heating up the house. Don't have to wait to preheat.

Thank you! They are just so big on the counter, but that is where I would want to keep it. Grrrrrrrr ... decisions, decisions, decisions!

Bot mine from QVC and hubby uses it more than I do. We bring leftovers home from restaurants and warm them up in fryer the next day. They taste as good as when we got them in restaurant. Especially steak and pizza! Jslady

They are large but well worth my counter "real estate." I rearranged lots of stuff to make room for the air fryer and I am so glad I did.

My friend has a Chefman and loves it - she uses it for quite a lot. Check Amazon, Chefman Air Fryers - 2 1/2qt, and a 3 1/2 qt..

I have a 3.2 Farberware and wish I had gotten bigger a few times. It was on sale for such a good price. Even though it is a smaller one I roasted a 3.95 pound hen and it came out wonderfully well. The reason I would like a bigger one is so I can make 2 things at once a little easier than I do in mine. I bought some accessory grates to stack but then I need to switch top to bottom. I can do it but troublesome. Generally I am only cooking for my DH so most of the time the size is okay.

Faberware makes a "toaster oven" with an air fryer. Has anyone tried that? Just saw it a few weeks ago at Walmart.
