Air fryer recommendation

I was thinking about buying a fryer and making french fries or maybe mushroom and my wife said, "buy an air fryer". Sounds good to me. I'm looking at the Philips TurboStar Technology Airfryer, Digital Interface, 1.8lb/2.75qt- HD9641/96 because it was recommended and gets good reviews. Anything else I should consider? Here's the link [www.amazon.com]

Because counter space is at a premium in my kitchen and I happened to hate the toaster oven i had I went with the Chefman Air Fryer Toaster Oven

a recent purchase and still learning my way around it. at the very least, it does make good toast. so far have done new potato wedges and frozen french fries both of which came out well. baked corn muffins in it last night. going to air fry pork chops and brussel sprouts this week.

We recently bought this big oven style air fryer recently and like it so far. We tried sliced zucchini, squash and portobello's in it this week with a little olive oil and it was very good.

I'm liking my Ninja Foodi, with multiple functions. "Air Crisp" is their brand name for the air fryer part, that is my favorite function. Also have used the pressure cook function with success. I have not used the slow cooker function yet, as I have other larger crock pots.
To save space, I suggest a multi function unit like this or other comparable brands. One unit to store, not several.

I bought one of the Bella air fryer ovens from Best Buy (like Grateful11 linked) over the holidays, replacing a drop-basket dedicated air fryer (not as fancy as the Phillips in the original post).

The Bella also replaced an existing countertop toaster oven, so I got some space back by combining two appliances into one. What I've also found with the oven-type air fryer is that a) it has much more capacity than the drop-basket one I had, and b) it's faster at cooking items than the drop-basket one.

Best Buy seems to put the Bella model up as "Deal of the Day" in the $69.99 price range about once a month.

The Wirecutter article is very interesting as it recommends a convection toaster oven over a dedicated air fryer. My understand is that they can both operate at the same temperature but the air fryer could have more air movement but this article seems to indicate that isn't the case. If a convection oven is as good as an air fryer then my traditional GE convection oven should do the job? Now I'm confused.

I bought a Farberware Convection~Toaster~AirFryer oven ~ 1.5 years ago at a Walmart and am happy with it. Cost ~ $70 back then.

Start here. Both our Oven and Microwave have convection settings. The microwave came with "accessories" for using the convection setting. Racks and a pan. We bought a wire pizza pan to use in the oven. Someone here recommended starting this way.
