About this deal

Among the eight presets are chips, meat, fish, vegetables, nuggets, roast chicken, pizza, and desserts, plus manual air-fryer and grill options. Air-fryers use hot air instead of oil, so are healthier than deep-fat fryers, and more versatile and energy efficient for cooking smaller quantities than ovens.

Finally, they make fairy cakes, to judge how well the appliance can bake and how evenly air circulates – the better baked and fluffier the cakes, the more efficient the air flow. The only other thing to note was that the wells in the bottom plate created an uneven surface, which led to some misshapen cupcakes, but those are minor issues. One of our only irks was the navigation of selecting your function and the ambiguity of some of the function icons.But if you’re interested in pressure cooking, or need a one-pot solution for a large family, it could be for you. The digital display didn’t always respond well to our touch and we’d have liked an indicator light to show the fryer was heated and ready to cook. My chips weren’t quite as crispy as the Tefal model above, but they cooked quickly and evenly, and it excelled on sausages and fish fingers.

Its appearance is particularly striking too, and we were fans of the sleek matte finish and bright, easy-to-use touchscreen. BBC Good Food’s expert reviews team has been reviewing air-fryers for five years, and regularly tests new models to ensure we’re bringing you the most up-to-date recommendations of the best air-fryers to spend your money on. The item may be missing the original packaging or protective wrapping, or may be in the original packaging but not sealed. Luckily, this didn’t impact the finished dishes too much – our chicken was juicy and our chips were the perfect texture inside, if a little unevenly browned. Reheat sausage rolls, pizza, spring rolls and any other leftovers you can think of in a matter of minutes.Fried favourites cooked more healthily may sound a little too good to be true but, thanks to the nifty air fryer, you can serve up classics such as fish and chips using little to no oil.

So you can cook your chicken and chips simultaneously, without the worry that one will be done before the other. You have to remove the (heavy) domed lid to check the progress of your food, and when you put the lid back in place, I found the machine was slow to restart. The cooking results, too, were excellent – both thick and thin-cut air-fried chips were a success, as was a deliciously crisp duck breast, which cooked at 180C for just 15 minutes.

Energy efficient and cost effective, our recent independent study has shown that you can save energy and cost when switching out your electric oven for an Air Fryer*.It is pretty bulky and wants putting away when not in use, but it’s the second cheapest on this list and it’s a worthy investment. You can not only roast and fry food, but dehydrate it to produce beef jerky, chewy apple rings, banana chips, veggie crisps and other healthy snacks.

All other things being equal, it is still cheaper to cook with gas, which at the time of writing cost 7p per kiloWatt hour, although the size and age of your gas oven may make still make it less efficient than the best modern air fryers. The drawer pulls out a little swiftly, so you’ll need to be mindful when taking food out, but I can tell the design is made from quality materials and built to last. We found the browning to be a little inconsistent when air-frying salmon and chicken breasts, and our aubergine – while flavoursome – lacked the restaurant-style grill marks we were hoping for. It doesn’t produce the crispiness of my top choice of air fryer, but it does cook very quickly and evenly – 20 minutes for chips or sweet potato fries and just six minutes for vegetables.Our second Ninja recommendation, the American brand’s newest air fryer, promises 15 minute meals in one pot. If that’s not enough, this new and improved model also comes with kebab skewers, silicone oven mitts and a small pizza crisping tray.
