Maybe you're not totally set on buying an air fryer, but you're wanting to try one out. This Dash compact air fryer is an affordable starter option. It may not be the highest quality air fryer out there, but it certainly does a solid job of cooking your favorite foods like veggies, chicken, and fries until they're golden and crispy without any oil. Consider it a gateway air fryer that doesn't require a huge commitment.
Promising review: "So far I am loving my Compact Dash Digital Air Fryer. I needed something lightweight that wouldn't take up a lot of room, and this product met both requirements. It looks attractive on the counter, it's easy to use, and easy to clean. I have cooked frozen french fries, frozen beer-battered cod, and fresh pork chops. So far everything has turned out excellent and crispy but not dried out. I am eager to try chicken and a few other foods soon. I am single so this is the perfect size for me." —Mary Merry
