There's a reason that social media has blown up with everything to do with air fryers in the last year, so if you were wondering whether to pick up a Black Friday air fryer deal, let us assure you it's a good idea!
The best air fryers offer far more than a healthy way to cook fries – in fact, an air fryer is more like a mini fan oven for your countertop, and can do so much. Even the most basic models can roast meat and vegetables, or bake a cake. But get the right attachments and you can stir up a curry or risotto, cook up eggs, make crispy tacos, or cook the perfect pizza.
If you're new to air fryers, there are a few vital considerations to make before you buy, The first being how many mouths do you have to feed and how much worktop space do you have to spare? Larger capacity fryers are good for big family meals, but will take up more room in the cabinet or on the counter.
Next, what do you want your air fryer to do? As we've said, some models are great little multi-taskers and have the ability to reheat, roast, or grill as well as fry – but you'll want to check that list of functions before you buy.
Finally, look for the extras included. Some will come with a host of accessories to up the versatility of your oven. With others, you may need to pay extra, or sadly, struggle to get hold of extras at all.
if you’re short on time but your ingredients list is long, look for an air fryer with cooking rack included, which offers an extra compartment for cooking two different foods at the same time; or one with a mixing paddle, so you don’t have to hover over it.
