Air Fryers That Can Cook for a Family

When we think about air fryers, we tend to think of small batches of treats – or maybe just baskets of frozen french fries – cooked to perfection, but when we look at it that way, the practical side of this machine is lost on those who cook for larger families.

For those of you who would like to cook for your entourage, here’s a list of air fryers 5.5 quarts on up to
6 quarts. Why not any higher? To be honest, it seems that the higher the capacity, the higher the more chance of using a halogen bulb in place of an infrared bulb. That means more energy, longer cooking times and especially, more heat. All of that adds up to a greater chance of a fire. Since we’re talking about a lot of products with plastic housings, I’d stay clear of anything that claims it can cook your Thanksgiving meal for eight people.

That said, there are some good fryers that can handle a fried chicken dinner. Let’s take a look at what’s out there.

AAOBOSI Air Fryer XL

Aobosi air fryer has a non-stick coated pan and detachable basket and both containers are dishwasher safe. The basket’s capacity is 5.6 quarts which is large enough to cook a small chicken. The timer can be set for1 to 30 minutes. Temperatures range from 140 to 392 degrees. The LED touch panel features six presets. The black case looks sharp.

The package includes a deep cake pan, pizza tray and kitchen tongs.

What We Like

  • The accessories are a great add-in.
  • The basket has a nice non-stick coating.
  • The 140 degree bottom setting is lower than most

What We’re Not Crazy About

  • While the 140 degrees on the bottom is good, 392 degrees is a little low for the top end.

Tidylife 6.3 QT XL Air Fryer

extra large air fryer
This 6.3 quart basket measures about 9-1/2 inches across, so your standard 9 inch pie pan will fit in here nicely. The basket has a lock-release feature which is pretty much a necessity when cooking large amounts of food. Eight presets take a lot of the guesswork out of cooking your favorite meals. The timer runs from 1 to 60 minutes – very convenient when cooking larger amounts of food that require longer cooking times. Cooking temperatures range from 170 to 400 degrees

What We Like

  • Lock-release safety feature on the basket.
  • Small counter footprint for its size.
  • 18 month warranty.

What We’re Not Crazy About

  • The basket isn’t always easy to remove and place in the fryer.
  • No accessories are included.

Chefman 6.5 Liter/6.8 Quart Air Fryer

chefman

One of the things that can be frustrating while using a smaller air fryer is that if you have to cook your food in batches, you aren’t saving any time. You may still be eating healthier, but spending more time in the kitchen than is necessary can be annoying and you have to add that frustration release issue to your meditation… but I digress…
Chefman’s flat basket is designed to hold greater quantities of food. It’s 6.5 liter capacity allows for plenty of room to finish cooking your meal in one go around. There are two versions of 6.5 Quart Chefman; one has a 60 minute analog timer, the other has a digital timer. Cooking with the analog dial means following a chart and hitting the switch. 175 to 400 degree temperature range is very good.
One drawback we’re seeing more and more with air fryers is the non-stick coating peeling off. This shouldn’t happen under any circumstances, but we’ve seen this over and over again. The Chefman is no exception. The most common way to prevent this is to keep it out of the dishwasher. Sure, the materials are BPA Free, but come on – it’s just going to get tougher to clean and embarrassing if you have to explain to a guest what that speck is in their food.

What We Like

  • The temperature range is great.
  • There’s room to cook a lot of food in that basket.

What We’re Not Crazy About

  • Is anyone going to develop a non-stick coating that sticks to the basket?
  • Not fond of the handle strength.

Ruqiji XXL Hot Air Fryer Family Size 6.5 Liter

RuQiji XXL Air Fryer

This flip top design allows Ruqiji to incorporate a viewing window. It also has a stirring blade that fits in the basket, saving you tons of shake time. The digital touch screen shows seven presets. The basket and pan are dishwasher safe. The top oven temperature setting is a little low at 392 degrees.

What We Like

  • The viewing basket allows you to keep an eye on your creations.
  • The flip top gives you easy access to the entire basket.

What We’re Not Crazy About

  • Topping out at 392 degrees feels limiting.
  • Some quality concerns have us wondering how seriously Ruqiji listens to their customers.

Habor Upgraded Air Fryer XL

Habor air fryer xl

The Habor Air Fryer is an upgrade from their previous popular XL. Habor’s air fryer features both a knob and touchscreen controls. This works well for anyone that has problems with touch sensitivity on the screen or is visually impaired. The upgrade is a redesigned basket that accommodates more food and even cooking.

There are seven preset modes and a “Keep Warm” setting that will stay on for up to two hours. The only downside is that the lowest temperature setting on this new version seems to be 360 degrees (if anyone can confirm or correct that, let us know).

Clean up is as easy as it gets. Packing for shipping was carefully thought through. The appliance is well-protected.

What We Like

  • Redesigned Basket
  • Dual Control Knobs
  • Could Habor have finally figured out the non-stick coating issue?

What We’re Not Crazy About

  • The 360 degree low end of the temperature setting is disappointing.
