About this deal

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. Roast the crunchiest potatoes in as little as 18 minutes, broccoli in 8 minutes and brussel sprouts in 13 minutes. I’ve also managed to cook meat and vegetables in half the time it takes my oven, though there are definitely some vegetables to avoid: broccoli, which turns ashy and spinach, which turns into a smattering of veg crisps.

But if you’re interested in pressure cooking, or need a one-pot solution for a large family, it could be for you. Our chips came out well cooked but – and we’re being picky here – about 20% lacked that golden brown shade we were looking for. So you can cook your chicken and chips simultaneously, without the worry that one will be done before the other. In our testing, the FlexDrawer proved to be just as efficient as the Dual Zone and we found the addition of the removable divider incredibly useful. I like the convenient pre-set mode that makes it easy to blast the air fryer with heat for a few minutes before loading food.I love cooking with an air fryer, but sometimes I worry that they don’t cook food all the way through, instead just cooking the outside quickly. It heats up in seconds thanks to the 1,000 Watts of power and cooked chips in 20 minutes, sausages and fish fingers in 12-15, and vegetables in just six. A meal cooked for an hour in a typical 2,000 Watt electric oven would use two kiloWatt hours of energy – but if you could cook the same meal in half an hour in a 1,000 Watt air fryer, it would use just half a kiloWatt hour. This article was updated in January to include the new tried and tested air fryer health grill from Procook and our new joint runner up, the Salter EK5728 Fuzion Dual Air Fryer. For example, certain air fryers have compatible grill pans, while others have roasting trays or rotisserie skewers meaning you can roast whole chickens in them too.

There's something very satisfying about watching chips or chicken crisp up in an air-fryer, and this 8-litre model from Lakeland offers you a clear view of the whole show –with windows on the front of each drawer that allow you to peek inside. Though the Speedi does come with a recipe book, it’s limited and after a few goes you’re left to your own devices.Ninja’s new 10-mode multi-cooker stands out for its innovative “Speedi Meals” function, which allows you to cook your grain of choice at the same time as meat and vegetables, thus quickly preparing a full meal for up to four people at once. When the ingredients need to be rotated or shook during cooking, it chimes loudly until you open the door – this ensures more even cooking, though it's a feature we find rarely with other air-fryers. During testing, one portion of frozen potato lattices came out perfectly crisp and golden in just six minutes, compared to the recommended 15-minute oven cooking time stated on the bag. The key to crisp fries was to peel and soak the potatoes in cold water for half an hour to remove starch, before drying thoroughly. Then there’s the convection technology, which ensures the heat and vapourised oil is very evenly distributed to every part of your food.

Dual-drawer air-fryer models also come with the ability to cook different dishes on different functions simultaneously, while rotisserie fryers can help you create restaurant-quality chicken and chips from home. As well as observing how well they cook a single portion of potatoes and vegetables, or single pieces of protein such as fish and steak, we also fill each air fryer to its advertised capacity. With these automatic presents, there’s no need to adjust the time and temperature yourself, though you can cook manually if you prefer. Much like other Ninja products we've tried, we were impressed with the packaging which was largely cardboard and paper with very little plastic.

Please include what you were doing when this page came up and the Cloudflare Ray ID found at the bottom of this page. Manufacturers make bold promises about being 75 per cent healthier than conventional fried food, and in my tests I never used more than one or two teaspoons of oil. It heats up quickly, with 1,550 Watts of power, but I found the best efficiency by preheating for two minutes before cooking. Its controls were intuitive and easy to use – a single knob lets you switch between all the different settings – something our testers found useful. This opens the door to thrifty bakes, classic cake recipes as well as free-from options to fit those with dietary requirements.
