Best Air Fryer For Most Malaysians
PerySmith Air Fryer Ecohealth XL PS1520
PerySmith Air Fryer Ecohealth XL PS1520 Specifications:
- Available in red and black colour
- Basket capacity 3.8L
- Temperature 80°C ~ 200°C
- Stainless steel heating element
- 2-layer diamond coating pan
PerySmith Air Fryer Ecohealth XL PS1520’s Positive Review:
barang berfungsi dengan jayanya.. mudah digunakan..so memang puas hati dia punya kualiti dan harga pn berpatutan..
PerySmith Air Fryer Ecohealth XL PS1520’s Negative Review:
Takde warranty card. No sirim. Butang timer rosak… Apa pun tak boleh
When purchasing an air fryer, it’s always recommended to get one that’s larger than what you need. Because it is very easy to overfill the basket of your air fryer and end up cooking the food badly.
PerySmith Ecohealth Air Fryer PS1520 has a pan size of 4.8L and a basket size of 3.8L. I would like to compliment PerrySmith for explicitly indicating its basket size because many air fryer brands fail to do so. Some even overstate their air fryer size, which is worse.
A 3.8L basket should be sufficient for most Malaysian families as it holds enough for 4-5 people.
A few notable features about this air fryer are its stainless steel heating element and its PFOA-free diamond coating on the basket and pan.
This PerySmith XL air fryer can be set to 80°C ~ 200°C for cooking food. And its timer can be set to a maximum of 30 minutes.
There are many satisfied customers for the PerySmith 3D Air Fryer Ecohealth Series PS1520. It received more than 9,700+ ratings on Shopee and got 4.9 out of 5.0 stars. It is really a good buy especially when there’s a promotion which brings the price down to less than RM200.
I noticed that many complained that the warranty card was not provided. I found that actually, Pery Smith doesn’t give physical warranty cards, users need to register at https://perysmith.com.my/ewarranty/.
Best Rated Air Fryer
Philips HD9200 4.1L
Philips HD9200 4.1L Specifications:
- Pan size 4.1L
- Basket 0.8kg
- Dishwasher safe
- Max temperature 200 degrees Celsius
- Preset cooking times 60 minutes
- Easy cord storage
- 2 years warranty
Philips HD9200 4.1L’s Positive Review:
Bubble Wrap packaging and dhl handling is so good. Philips ni besar sikit dari russell taylors sblm ni. Better juga philips sbb 2y warranty. Dah try test buat pastry td jadi elok saja
Philips HD9200 4.1L’s Negative Review:
Philips has been the pioneer of the air fryer for more than a decade. Philips air fryer is highly rated by many expert reviewers like wirecutter and goodhousekeeping.com.
According to Philips, their Rapid Air Technology is superior to their competitors. The “starfish” shaped pan propels hot air to all corners of the air fryer. As a result, food cooks more evenly and is crispier on the outside.

The Philips HD9200 has a maximum temperature of 200 degrees Celcius and can be preset for up to 60 minutes of cooking time. It allows users to cook various recipes using medium-low temperatures but cook longer. Philips curated many nutritious and easy air fryer recipes on its NutriU apps.
You can use it to fry fries, bake a cake, grill steak, roast chicken and even reheat pizza.
Philips HD9200 has a square basket instead of the round basket you see on other cheaper competitors. Square baskets are better because you can arrange the food more easily and use the space more efficiently.
You also should take note of the 4.1L size referring to the pan size. The basket is only good for around 0.8kg of food.
One last thing, Philips air fryer is one of the few brands which states their air fryer is safe to be cleaned with a dishwashing machine.
Philips HD9200 is a highly affordable air fryer at only RM350+. It is considerably cheaper than other premium Philips models like Philips HD9860 which cost RM1699.
It comes with a 2 years warranty.
Best Large Air Fryer
PerySmith Air Fryer Ecohealth II PS1530
PerySmith Air Fryer Ecohealth II PS1530 Specifications:
- 0 to 200 degree Celsius temperature
- Stainless steel heating element
- 60 minutes timer
- Smart overheat protection
- No basket design
PerySmith Air Fryer Ecohealth II PS1530’s Positive Review:
Dah try, sangat2 puas hati.. Bunyi ok.. Masak rate, cantek, mudahkan kerja di dapur… Design elegan, color cantek.. Terbaik.
PerySmith Air Fryer Ecohealth II PS1530’s Negative Review:
This air fryer quality not so good as my expectation,come out very noisy sounds when use…even louder than my used fryer… sorry for bad comment about quality, just wanna be honest
PerySmith PS1530 is the best mid-size air fryer. It has an elegant blue colour design and a capacity of 4.2L.
There are a few things different between the PS1530 and the PS1520 model. I would like to touch on the downside of this air fryer.
First, the PS 1530 uses a no basket design.
It uses only a pan with a filter design. This is common with cheaper air fryer models because manufacturers can save costs by omitting them.
Based on my observation, the basket design appears to be better given the fact that hot air in an air fryer needs to circulate from the bottom and sides. It ensures the food is cooked evenly. Regardless, the pans with filters still cook food, but may not produce the best results.
The improvement on PerySmith PS1530 is the use of a square-shaped design. It also comes with a 90 minutes timer. And a more flexible 0 to 200 degree Celsius adjustable temperature.
Overall, PerySmith PS1530 is a very good value for money air fryer and comes with 2 years warranty. Also, there’s always a promotion for PerySmith products on Shopee and Lazada Sales Day (7/7,8/8, 9/9, 11/11 …)
Best Extra Large Air Fryer
Airbot Air Fryer XL AF550
Airbot Air Fryer XL AF550 Specifications:
- Rapid pre-heating
- Non-stick teflon coating
- Temperature 0-200 degree Celsius
- Timer 30 minutes
- 5.5L capacity
Airbot Air Fryer XL AF550’s Positive Review:
Sangat sangat puas hari. Saiz yang sangat besar. Harga pun berpatutan.
Airbot Air Fryer XL AF550’s Negative Review:
Haritu sampai handle patah, body calar2 mcm barang 2nd hand. Nak tukar kena tanggung postage sendiri send ke warehouse. Now dah dpt tukar baru tapi menyusahkan.Btw great cust service respond
Airbot AF550 XL is the best extra large air fryer on a small budget if its capacity is really 5.5 litres as it claims. If you check the comparison table above, its dimensions are very similar to PerySmith PS1520. I can only trust and rely on the official specification in this review.
The Airbot AF550 air fryer uses a pot and grill plate design. So, there’s no basket. The pot is a long semi-circle shape and seems able to fit one whole chicken with it.
Cleaning is easy for the Airbot air fryer because its pot and grill plate is coated with 3 layers of Teflon non-stick coating.
This Airbot Air Fryer XL AF550 comes with a built-in timer of 30 minutes and offers cooking temperatures from 0 to 200 degrees celsius. It comes with only a one year warranty, shorter than others in this list.
Best Air Fryer Under RM200
Russell Taylors Air Fryer AF-24
Russell Taylors Air Fryer AF-24 Specifications:
- 3.8L pan capacity
- 80 – 200 degree Celsius
- 30 minutes timer
- Dishwasher safe
- Pan and basket design
Russell Taylors Air Fryer AF-24’s Positive Review:
Products come w no damaged at all and really fast delivery! Within one day only! After using this all functions really work temperature and minute all can be used. Already try fry the frozen food also came with a really good result!
Russell Taylors Air Fryer AF-24’s Negative Review:
The drawer is stuck and cannot close completely. Very disappointed.I would like to ask for a replacement or refund. Thank you
Poor product quality. The coating peeled off after 2 times using it!
Russell Taylors Air Fryer AF-24 is the best air fryer under RM200 based on real customer reviews. Over 35,000+ reviews have been posted with an average rating of 4.9 stars. You don’t see many products with five-digit reviews, so this is no easy feat.
But, I would not recommend buying it because there are repeated complaints about the pan not fitting into the air fryer completely and the coating on the basket coming off easily after a short time.
The pan not fitting into the air fryer is a major issue for me. There are certainly quality control issues with this model.
Also, note that the pan capacity is 3.8L. So, the basket size is going to be smaller, which the capacity should be around 2.6 to 2.8L.
One of the good things about this Russell Taylors AF-24 Air Fryer is that it uses a pan and basket design that facilitates better airflow and better cooking.
All Russel Taylors products come with a standard 1-year warranty. Bear in mind that with its high sales number and QC issues with these air fryers, I can foresee that the warranty claim could be a hassle.
Best Cheap Air Fryer
Yilizomana Air Fryer 4.5L
Yilizomana Air Fryer 4.5L Specifications:
- Max. temperature 200 degree Celsius
- 30 minutes timer
- 4.5L pan size
- Grille plate only, no basket
- 2 years warranty
Yilizomana Air Fryer 4.5L’s Positive Review:
Good value for money. Functions well. And most of all its not too noisy. Seller is very responsive and answered all my questions. The size of tray is ok for 2-3 people. Tried french fries with this air fryer n its ok plus its minus the oil
Yilizomana Air Fryer 4.5L’s Negative Review:
When switched on, 5 times will have 3 times the weird sounds. And the basket lid was not fit to the airfryer (the images attached are the best situation already)
Dia punya timer tak dapat jalan.. Dh msg seller tapi tkda response..
There is a disgusting smell, I regret buying this air fryer and wasting money.
Another super popular, best-selling cheap air fryer on Shopee, the Yilizomana Air Fryer 4.5L. It has 24,000+ ratings and an average rating of 4.9 stars.
But, again, I do not recommend buying Yilizomana air fryers. Some customers feel the quality is acceptable since it is the only brand that sells air fryers for less than RM90 for 3.2L and only RM119 for 4.5L.
Unfortunately, the low price is not without its downsides.
First, I forbid anyone to buy the Yilizomana 3.2L air fryer because it only has a timer function and no temperature control. We all know how important temperature control is for cooking food ?!
Then, the 4.5L Yilizomana air fryer has 3 common complaints.
First, some customers pointed out that there’s a strange ticking sound that may be due to the fan hitting other parts of the air fryer.
A second problem is that the pan does not fit in the air fryer body.
Third, there are few complaints of weird smells coming out from the air fryer.
Last but not least, a few reported the timer doesn’t work and also the air fryer broke after a few uses.
In short, cheap air fryer brands like Yilizomana are not worth it. If you have a tight budget, you should probably forget about getting the air fryer now and save at least RM200 to buy from reputable brands later.
Best Smart Air Fryer
Xiaomi Air Fryer 3.5L
Xiaomi Air Fryer 3.5L Specifications:
- China 2-pin plug
- OLED touch-sensitive display
- Can control with smartphone
- 24 hours schedule timer
- Many presets recipe in app
Xiaomi Air Fryer 3.5L’s Positive Review:
Like it so much, it is easy for me to cook and not oily as I also don’t like my kitchen/unit smelly when cooking. MI Air fryer outlook is simple and nice, classic.
Xiaomi Air Fryer 3.5L’s Negative Review:
Xiaomi Air Fryer 3.5L is the best smart air fryer in Malaysia. In fact, there are no other air fryer brands that make smart air fryers like this.
It is considered a steal that you can get this air fryer for less than RM300, only costs RM265 for the China version.
The Mi Air Fryer Global Version will set you back RM345.
If you can read Chinese, and don’t mind China 2-pin plug. Get the China version as it is better value for money.
The Xiaomi Air Fryer looks minimalist and classic. It sports a full white body with one OLED touch screen control knob.
The design is great but it is not user-friendly for the elderly.
This Mijia air fryer uses a “no-basket” design and only comes with a pot and grill pan. But Xiaomi had made a few small improvements to improve the air circulation issue.
This pot has many cutouts along the sides and the grilled pan is raised considerably. These small details are made to enhance hot air flows to cook food evenly.
The pan is coated with PTFE non-stick coating for easy cleaning. And there’s a grille rack that comes in the box so you can cook more food at one go.
Since you can control the air fryer with the Mi Home App, there are many preset recipes available.
With its long timer period and accurate temperature control, you can use it to make dried food, yoghurt, bake cake and bread, defrost meat, and fry food.
Xiaomi Smart Air Fryer is another promising product from its Xiaomi Smart Home Appliance Ecosystem. Before purchasing, be sure to check the warranty period with the vendor. Different vendors offer different warranty terms.
Best Air Fryer Oven
Khind ARF9400 Multi Air Fryer Oven
Khind ARF9400 Multi Air Fryer Oven Specifications:
- Chamber size 9.5L
- Free rotisserie basket
- Stainless steel mesh frying basket
- LED display with touch sensor
- Large viewing windows
- Rotisserie function
Khind ARF9400 Multi Air Fryer Oven’s Positive Review:
Aku dah ada airfryer bulat tu tapi aku suka yang ni sbb pemanasan atas bawah dan api dia kuat gila ok.
product is good & value for money
Khind ARF9400 Multi Air Fryer Oven’s Negative Review:
Khind Multi Air Fryer Ovens are a hybrid design combining the functions of conventional toasters and air fryers.
Air fryer ovens actually cook better than normal air fryers because space is usually wider and airflow is better.
In addition, the frying basket is also located in the middle of the oven for optimum heating and your food can be split into two baskets rather than all being stuffed into one basket like in a traditional air fryer.
The Khind ARF9400 has a chamber size of 9.5L. It can fit a whole 1.5kg chicken in it. The rotisserie basket is great for cooking popcorn, chicken wings, or nuggets.
It’s obvious that air fryer ovens are better than regular air fryers from the point of view of cooking. However, the oven design makes cleaning difficult.
Every time after you cook with such air fryer oven, you must thoroughly clean the chamber .
As opposed to that, the normal air fryer pan/basket can be removed and easily washed at the kitchen sink, or you can even throw it into the dishwasher if it is dishwasher-safe.
Nonetheless, Khind ARF9400 is still a capable and versatile air fryer. It comes with a 1-year warranty and Khind has a total of 10 service centres in Malaysia.
Best Air Fryer For Large Family
La Gourmet Turbo Roaster HT-A12
La Gourmet Turbo Roaster HT-A12 Specifications:
- 12L glass bowl
- 1200W Halogen Heater
- 1x Extender Ring
- 1x Stainless steel steamer
La Gourmet Turbo Roaster HT-A12’s Positive Review:
Dah buat mcm2 resepi guna La Gourmet Turbo Roaster..buat kuih raya pon cepat..ada support group di FB….sharing recipes and also handling tips
La Gourmet Turbo Roaster HT-A12’s Negative Review:
Firstly, we tried to make banana cake & sadly it didn’t cook well! Then, we air-fried the chicken and again it didn’t cook as well as expected & took a long time not like the Philip Air Fryer that we have which is so efficient!
La Gourmet Turbo Roaster was actually known as a halogen oven in the past. Its history traces back to 1995. Some called it the original form of today’s air fryer.
Different from an air fryer, La Gourmet Turbo Roaster uses halogen light bulbs instead of steel heating coils to generate the heat required to cook the food. It is said to be more energy-efficient.
The working principle of Turbo Roaster is similar to a normal air fryer but the air circulation is not as rapid as an air fryer. It uses a large 12L glass bowl as the “container” for cooking.
The cooking process may take slightly longer due to these reasons.
With the glass bowl, you can see directly into the cooking process, which is very convenient. There is also a grill rack and extender ring included in the box which allows for more cooking space.
La Gourmet Turbo Roaster is suitable for large families. In case you’re always pressed for time, it’s better to invest in a conventional Philips Air Fryer
Best Air Fryer With Glass Lid
Giselle Air Fryer KEA0320
Giselle Air Fryer KEA0320 Specifications:
- 4.5L capacity (7L with extender ring)
- Max 250 degree Celsius
- 60 minutes timer
- Only uses 1000W
- Infrared heating
Giselle Air Fryer KEA0320’s Positive Review:
Bunyi masak x bising. Bley defrost (thaw), bake, grill, bakar roti, ayam bakar berkuah, ratatouille dll. Manual book in eng. Pkai extender, jd 7L. Xpkai extender, jd 5L. Senang cuci. Wayar kt kepala, bkn badan. 3 pin Msia, Sirim. Daily use still jimat bil.
Giselle Air Fryer KEA0320’s Negative Review:
Menyesal beli. Masak ayam 220/60minit.. Habis masa pon Ayam tetap sama mentah. Try donat frozen lepas 20minit tetap tak masak betul2 lagi.
The Giselle KEA 0320 is known as Infrared Air Cooker. Again, this is not the typical air fryer. Instead, this works more like the La Gourmet Turbo Air Turbo Roaster.
Despite its higher maximum temperature of 250 degrees Celsius, it usually takes longer to cook as it lacks rapid air circulation like a normal air fryer.
An advantage of this type of air cooker is its glass lid, which lets you see what you are cooking easily. In addition, its usable cooking space is larger than an air fryer.
With its large capacity, the Giselle Air Fryer KEA0320 is great for preparing meals for big families, but you should keep in mind they will cook somewhat slowly.
Tefal Fry Delight FX1000
With so many new air fryer brands and models coming out, the Tefal Fry Deligh FX1000 that costs more than RM400 is no longer a good buy.
Philips HD9643 Air Fryer
If you prefer premium Philips air fryer models, you can get the latest Philips HD9860. Otherwise, you should just take the more economical HD9200 as recommended above.
