Our rating: 4.7 / 5

The Dash Tasti-Crisp air fryer is an excellent air fryer for those that want to try one out at a reasonable price and cook small batches of food or use it a few times a week. It’s hard to say if it’s reakky designed for long-term daily use.  The main issue is that it’s small and not designed to cook large quantities of fried foods. It uses little oil and cooks healthier fried food, a real plus for the health-conscious.

Overall, for a small air fryer, the Dash Tasti crisp air fryer works very well and is a good buy.  It serves two to four people when making snacks, side dishes, small meals, and appetizers.
