While this year’s Black Friday air fryer deals have already been here for quite some time, we’ve still got plenty of savings left to buy before Cyber Week is over. If you’re looking for a last-minute Black Friday air fryer deal, we’ve rounded up all of our top picks right here.

    This year’s best Black Friday air fryer deals have included over 50% off a Tefal air fryer (now sold out, unfortunately) and a £100 discount on a Philips XXL fryer. While the best air fryers will typically cost you over £100, we’ve seen some of our favourites from Cosori and Instant on sale for under £80 thanks to some 20% discounts at Amazon and Robert Dyas. Air fryers are changing the cooking game, with extra speedy pre-heating times and energy-saving small designs. Because of the smaller internal capacity, these convection cookers will take a fraction of the time that your oven needs to pre-heat, and the drawers can go straight into the dishwasher when you’re done.

    These Black Friday air fryer deals are the perfect choice for those who want to invest in a low-fat home cooker to get a New Years diet off to a strong start. While they can be used for all sorts of treats, air fryers will also cook homemade chips and even breaded fish with just a spray of oil, instead of a deep-fried finish. That cuts back on the oil in your diet and won’t compromise on delicious crispy finishes. We’ll be covering all the best Cyber Monday air fryer deals too, so if you need a little more time to think before investing, you won’t have long to wait for more great Black Friday air fryer deals.

    Black Friday Ninja air fryer deals

    Ninja black friday air fryer deals

    Ninja makes some of the best air fryers on the market, and we’re particularly big fans of the Dual Zone, which has two independent drawers to cook meat and veg, or starter and main, simultaneously. Ninja also can be found on regular promotions, so we’re expecting some amazing Black Friday Ninja air fryer deals.

    This year’s Black Friday Ninja air fryer deals have already mostly sold out, but we’ll be looking out for any last-minute discounts to help you pick up your desired fryer.

In our Tefal YV970840 Actifry Genius XL 2in1 review we were particularly impressed by the chips it made, and how easy it was to use both layers for different kinds of cooking.

    How much can I save with an air fryer deal?

    Philips Essential Air Fryer

    While not every air fryer will have a great saving come the big event, last year we saw savings of around 50% on some of our favourite models. Ninja offered at least £20 off most of its air fryers, and for more premium picks such as the Foodi Multi Cooker, we saw savings of £50 for air frying, slow cooking, roasting, and a lot more.

    Some of the best Black Friday air fryer deals can typically be found on air fryers that have been in the market for a year or two, so while we’re not sure if Cosori’s latest Premium air fryer will be hitting everyone’s baskets, it’s likely that we’ll see extra low prices on the classic Cosori CP358-AF, which is still a great option.

    What air fryer should I buy?

    Swan Retro air fryer

    If you’re new to air frying and want something budget-friendly to get you started, we recommend the Instant Vortex Mini air fryer. While it’s small it’s also affordable, and it comes in a range of fun colours. This air fryer really shows what the hype is all about, but if you go for a cheaper brand that comes in at around £20, you may not get to experience all the added cooking functions and sensitive temperature controls that make us love air frying in the first place.

    Premium air fryers can cost as much as £300, so Black Friday is a great excuse to upgrade to something that’s capable of keeping up with busy family life if you see a breakout deal. After all, many air fryer owners are such big fans that one air fryer is not enough!

    What types of air fryer are there?

    There are two main types of air fryer, a basket air fryer, or an oven air fryer. In America, people also use toaster ovens, but those are less common in the UK market.

    Basket air fryers

    Most of the top air fryers we’ve tried were basket air fryers. This means there is a central heating element with a basket that can simply be inserted into place. You can use the handle on the basket to pull out your chips or veggies and give them a shake midway through your cooking cycle, which is very helpful for keeping your hands safe when cooking.

    Basket air fryers sometimes come with a removable insert that separates food from any liquid or fat that drips away during cooking. This insert can usually be lifted out to allow you to cook in the flat base of the air fryer, particularly in Ninja and Instant air fryers, but other models like Swan and Cosori will depend on the model. The removable insert has its pros and cons, because while it can make your air fryer more multi-functional, it will also make it harder to pour out your food without also pouring out the liquid that’s gathered at the bottom of the fryer.

    Oven air fryers

    Breville Halo Rotisserie Air Fryer

    We’ve reviewed a few oven air fryers from Tower and Breville, and they are more of a cross between a regular oven and a drawer air fryer. The drawer air fryer will only have one cooking compartment, but an oven air fryer can distribute numerous shelves through the inside of the cooker. This is useful for cooking different elements of a meal in one go, and can also make cleaning easier. Convection ovens circulate hot air in the same way an air fryer does, so in many ways, an oven air fryer is more of a mini convection oven.
