Xiaomi might be renowned for their smartphones, but they make some pretty durable air fryers too! We think the sleek and futuristic Xiaomi Mijia Onemoon Air Fryer (available on mijia.sg) bears a passing resemblance to Star Wars’ R2D2.

It’s even large enough to bake a small cake — just make sure you have a non-stick baking pan first!

Worried about cleaning up after frying up a hearty meal? Don’t worry — all you need to do is detach the frying basket for convenient washing!

Mayer’s MMAO55 Air Oven (available on Mayer_Marketing) is an air oven that utilises similar technology to its air fryer counterparts. The difference? Its staggering 12L cooking capacity and its ability to cook your food faster (thanks to its convection oven capabilities) with less oil.

Their HD9240 Air Fryer (available on Home & Life Essentials) surely doesn’t disappoint! Although it’s one of the pricier offerings on the list, its price tag is well worth it.

9. Tefal ActiFry FZL510 (1.2L)
Don’t be put off by its price point — the multitude of benefits offered by the Tefal’s ActiFry air fryer (available on Tefal Official Store) justifies it! In fact, it’s known as one of the best air fryers in Singapore.
For one, Tefal’s patented ActiFry technology promises a faster cooking time, so you don’t have to wait as long to savour your food. It also features a rotating ceramic pan in addition to its air circulation technology, which guarantees evenly-cooked food without the need to stir or shake the air fryer basket. Want to check in on the air frying process? The ActiFry’s transparent lid allows you to peek at your food while it’s being cooked!
Our only gripe is the fixed temperature at 150 degrees Celsius which limits the range of dishes that can be prepared with the ActiFry. Nevertheless, for those dishes that it can cook, it’ll definitely cook to perfection.
