About this deal
Mini oven’ types: these models use convection or fan technology to cook food on flat, slide-in trays. Depending on your budget, they’ll be controlled with either manual buttons or a touchscreen display.
You should also consider the capacity of the air fryer – some are big enough to cater for a family meal, while others are smaller and can fit into dinky kitchens. The rotisserie function cooks the juiciest roast chicken and meat joints with ease, only available for the air fryer oven. Do you like to choose your own temperature and how long to cook things for, or would you prefer to leave all that to the machine?It proved intuitive to use on test, thanks to a clear display panel, responsive controls and easy-to-use pre-sets. They were crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, though slightly dry (the downside to most air fryers).
If you’ve got a small kitchen or are simply struggling to accommodate any more must-have appliances on your worktop, this little air fryer is worth consideration. You can opt for larger models in the Genius range, but these are rather large and we think this model is the ideal size. For expanded capacity and functionality, opt for our dual zone air fryer, unlocking possibilities to create a variety of delicious dishes. Recipe-wise, air-fryers are an excellent tool for not only knocking up traditional favourites, but aiding you in experimentation.The chicken legs we roasted were juicy inside and evenly cooked, while the chips in the next drawer required a little more attention with shakes mid-cook, but had a good crisp finish on the outside. Find everything from counter-top appliances, such as the best food processors and best toasters, through to larger white goods like the best microwaves and best dishwashers.
However, air-frying does have some negatives, so it should be considered as part of a balanced diet. You can operate it from a smartphone too, which is a fun bonus, though for safety reasons it has to be switched on manually.
We put every air fryer through a rigorous set of tests to ensure they do everything they claim, whether that’s cooking perfectly crispy chips, tender fish, evenly browned oven food or even whole chickens. Take the appliance’s wattage and multiply it by the gadget’s hours of use per day, then divide the total by 1000.
There are several actions that could trigger this block including submitting a certain word or phrase, a SQL command or malformed data. This new and improved model takes everything we love about the Foodi Dual Zone and makes it even better. There are also oven-style air fryers that often come with rotisserie accessories, so you can roast a full chicken for example.
It scored almost perfect marks across the board in our tests, delivering light, crispy chips and succulent chicken, which you can programme to be ready at the same time using the handy sync function. You should also look for additional functions if you plan on using your fryer for more than chips and nuggets – some air fryers can cook curries, stews, risottos, and more. Air-fryers are generally very versatile, but there are certain ingredients you should avoid air-frying for safety reasons, like popcorn and sauce-based dishes. Nine automatic cooking functions take most of the guesswork out of air frying but there’s still an option to manually set the time and temperature if need be. Alongside air frying, the Instant Vortex Plus offers a nice array of functions, including roasting, grilling, baking, reheating and dehydrating.
