Once you've tested out an air fryer, it's easy to see why you'd never go back to using the stove. A little bit of oil, coupled with high heat, is all it takes to transform potatoes into french fries, bacon into crispy strips, and chicken wings into gloriously crunchy snacks—all in a matter of minutes. And if you consider yourself an avid air fryer user, you may have come into the irritating problem of wanting to air fry two things that require different temperatures and cooking times at once. 

That no longer has to be an issue thanks to the Ninja Foodi 6-in-1 2-Basket Air Fryer, which, as the name suggests, is constructed with two baskets. With this air fryer, you can simultaneously cook two foods two different ways, rather than being forced to clean out the basket and restart if dinner requires more than one component. Each cooking basket has its own cyclonic fan and rapid heater, and it can be programmed with different temperatures and functions.  

Choose from six customizable programs, including air fry, air broil, roast, bake, reheat, and dehydrate, along with a match cook button that copies settings across both baskets. The DualZone Technology features a smart finish cooking feature, allowing both baskets to finish cooking at the same time. An extra-large 8-quart cooking basket is big enough to fit up to four pounds of mains and sides. Plus, the air fryer comes with easy-to-clean baskets and dishwasher-safe crisper plates, making cleanup just as seamless as the cooking process. 

To buy: Ninja Foodi 6-in-1 2-Basket Air Fryer, $160 (originally $180) at amazon.com

Over 2,000 Amazon shoppers have given the air fryer a five-star rating, and reviewers say it has become their "go-to kitchen appliance"—one that allows for "no-mess cooking." Many reviewers have mentioned that they've stopped using their stove, relying instead on the versatility of this air fryer. 

"This is a must-have for any kitchen," one shopper says. "I absolutely love our Ninja dual air fryer, so much so that I've talked a few family members and friends into buying one! I have two kids who can cook a different snack or meal at the same time. It cuts cooking time by a lot, and there's no need to wait for it to preheat like using an oven. I can't believe I've gone this long without one."

"[I'm] in love with this air fryer," another shopper shares. "Honestly, it's amazing and cuts cooking time in half if not less. I've made meatballs, Polish sausages, pork chops, whole chickens, chicken thighs, and drumsticks. It's quicker than the oven, and it's so nice that everything is timed so I don't have to worry about forgetting anything."   

Whether you've never used an air fryer or want to level up with a double convection oven, shop the Ninja Foodi Air Fryer for $160 on Amazon.
