Why it: Combination of high power and eye-catching design.
Caso – German manufacturer of household appliances. The company is quite young, its first devices were introduced relatively recently, in the 2000s. But it’s still worth a look, because it combines the famous German quality approach with modern design of its products.
Caso air grills don’t look like cooking utensils. Glossy black surfaces, chrome elements, smooth lines – the devices look more like a work of modern art than like household appliances. So they fit perfectly into any kitchen design.
In addition, the company Caso specializes in highly professional kitchen appliances, which may well be used in restaurants, and aerogrills are no exception. Convection ovens from this manufacturer have an increased power (from 1500 watts), so they are perfect for cooking any dishes, including kebabs of very tender and juicy foods.
Why it: Low price and attractive design.
Like the previous manufacturer on the list, Philips (which, by the way, is also based in Germany) combines advanced functionality and attractive design in its air grills. And even if its models do not look as futuristic as Caso’s, they will still be a real gem in the kitchen.
It’s worth noting that Philips’ range of air grills is not all that great. At the time of this writing (February 2019), the manufacturer supplied only two models to Russia. They differ in capacity and cup capacity – one is designed for infrequent home use, the second belongs to a slightly more professional class.
Designed primarily for home use, these devices support automatic cooking modes. This makes them very easy to use and suitable even for inexperienced users.
Why it is: Large range and American made, and easy to cook.
Unlike the previous two manufacturers in the rating, in developing air grills Hotter company focuses not on design but on practicality. That’s why the bowls of its devices are made of transparent glass, so you can independently assess the degree of readiness of food and, if necessary, interrupt the heat treatment.
In addition, there are about a dozen air grills in the Hotter range, including quite specialized ones. For example Fitness model offers special steam and water spray technologies to preserve useful qualities of food. Economy New oven has adjustable power, so it will not overuse electricity. And the Classic version is available in two versions – with a removable and hinged lid, so you can choose the right one for the side dish.

The fact that this manufacturer uses its own technology for production of heating elements. They are resistant to voltage and temperature fluctuations, as well as prolonged nonstop use. Thanks to this, a long service life is achieved, which is confirmed by a long warranty period from the manufacturer.
But the functionality of Steba aero grills is quite standard. Like other models in the list, they offer a delayed start, an off timer, several automatic cooking programs, a keep warm mode and much, much more.
Why it is: Low price and non-standard design of aerogrills.
Aerogrills from the company GFgril have a very unusual design. First, they come in white and purple, which is already quite unconventional for kitchen and home appliances. And second, their case is decorated with a floral pattern!
But it is not only unusual design that convection ovens from this manufacturer can boast. They also use the proprietary Rapid Air Circ technology
- ate System, which ensures the rapid movement of hot air outside and inside the bowl. Thanks to this the food is cooked faster, but retains its juiciness, flavor and usefulness.

For maximum reliability, these devices are also equipped with a special mechanical control system. As a consequence, they should not be recommended to novice users, as there are no automatic programs, or timers for switching on or off in LEX appliances.
But the convection ovens from this manufacturer also boast a wide range of equipment, including a frying grid and a mixing module.
Why is it: The multifunctionality of manufactured kitchen appliances.
European company Zigmund Shtain is not the most famous manufacturer of kitchen and household appliances (and, in particular, air grills) in the world. But this does not prevent it from producing quite interesting and multifunctional devices. The convection ovens in its product line combine the capabilities of an electric fryer, an aerogrill, and other useful kitchen gadgets.
Therefore, the technique from this manufacturer can be quite recommended to those users who do not want to “bother” with the process of cooking and can give in to the taste in comparison with the complexity of cooking. Nevertheless, Zigmund Shtain’s smart programs help to retain useful qualities of food. And also, with the right use of convection oven capabilities, to save and even multiply the flavor characteristics.

The Russian-French brand Vitesse offers a wide range of dishes, household and kitchen appliances. And there are also aerogrills in its “portfolio”. And quite inexpensive (cheaper than most competitors in the ranking), but very functional.
One can recommend Vitesse convection ovens both for beginners and experienced cooks. The devices have intelligent cooking programs and manual mode, which allows you to control all the parameters in detail. In addition, the bowl, in which the food is supposed to be placed, is made of transparent glass. You can see exactly how cooked the food is through it.

Why it: Large assortment and consistently low prices.
One of the most important advantages of the Russian manufacturer of kitchen appliances Kitfort is a low price for its products. And, of course, for air grills. They cost less than most competitors, so they will suit those users who want to join a healthy diet, but are not willing to spend too much money to buy modern kitchen appliances.
In addition, in the model range Kitfort represented about a dozen of air grills. Thanks to this there is always a choice – the devices differ not only in power (from 1.3 kW to 1.8 kW) or volume (from 2.2 L up to 5.2 liters), but also in design and functionality.
The devices are also suitable for beginners – almost all models have preset intelligent cooking programs. In addition, thanks to modern heating elements, a uniform distribution of temperature is achieved, which is very important for high-quality thermal processing of food.
Why is it: Rich equipment, increased volume of air grills.
Russian-Swedish brand Endever produces aerogrills with increased volume and with a rich set. So, these devices are suitable for equipping the kitchen in a large family. So, for example, the most popular model of the brand – Endever AG-132 – has a working capacity of 9 liters of bowl! Only a few manufacturers in the ranking can offer devices that can compete with this air grill.

Why it is: Low price and unique design of air grills.
In the production of their aerogrills, the Russian company Redmond abandoned the traditional design, which implies the installation of a glass or metal bowl. Convection ovens of this brand are not equipped with them at all. It is assumed that the owner of an aerogrill will use it along with the existing containers for cooking – pots, sauté pans, bowls of multicookers and so on.
Avoiding the traditional bowl has allowed for a significant reduction in the cost of the air grills. The devices are sold significantly cheaper than most models from competitors. At the same time, the functionality and specifications are quite similar.
