So what exactly is the difference between a ‘small’, ‘medium’ and ‘large’ unit? Which type will work for your household best? Before buying an air fryer, here’s what you need to consider:
Size and Capacity

If you are single or live alone, then a small capacity air fryer is the best to buy. A medium capacity fryer will serve a family of 2-3 and large capacity can manage cooking for 4-5 people.
But what about if you need it to cook for 6 or more people? What do you do in that case? Well, there is no dearth of options at this point! Some manufacturers have come up with five liter and seven liter models. What you can do is place your large size air fryer on the counter so that everyone gets enough space to take out their food when it’s ready. Having said that, we also recommend buying two separate units rather than one big one.
Now that you are aware of the size and capacity to choose from, let us quickly look at price range for each type of air fryer available in the market:
These types of fryers cost anywhere between $60-80 and have a one litre capacity.
Compact Air Fryers
They cost around $100 and have a 1.2 liter-1.5 liter capacity.
Large Air Fryers
Last but not least, large air fryers will set you back close to $150-$250 depending on the brand and model you go in for.
In summary, you should buy a small fryer if it will serve just one person. If you live with your spouse and children then medium or large capacity air fryers can be bought depending on how many people eat together.
