How we curated these air fryer deals

In line with our testing protocol here at Ideal Home, the air fryers we've recommended above have all been tested by a member of our team, so you know you can trust our recommendations. 

Our explainer on how we test air fryers has the full details, and below you can see pictures from our test centre which show us testing top-rated air fryers. 

When is the best time to get an air fryer deal?

There's no doubt that the most advantageous time of year to shop for an air fryer is in the run-up to Christmas and after Christmas. As shoppers search for gifts and try to save money going into the New Year, retailers slash prices to catch the market. That makes October, November and December the hottest month of the year for air fryer deals.

We've also noticed that some of the best air fryer deals could be found on air fryers that have been in the market for a year or two. 

While the January sales are the high point, it is possible to catch a good air fryer on sale year-round. Below we've collated the different times we saw air fryers on sale so that you can mark them in your calendars if you're planning. We've also got the lowdown on stand mixer deals and coffee machine deals if you're looking to shop appliances more generally. 

How can you tell if you have found a good air fryer deal?

When shopping around for an air fryer, compare the key specs of each deal such as size, capacity, programs, as well as crucially, the price. We always say that a deal is only a good deal if the product is good.

So the first thing you should do is check the reviews if it isn't an air fryer you have seen in person and coveted until sale time. Don't be lured by a super low price and have the false economy of having to replace the appliance after barely any use. You'll know you've got a good deal when you've found a high-spec air fryer for a competitive price. 

If you spot an amazing air-fryer deal that feels too good to be true, it probably is. Minimise the risk of being duped by shopping from reputable retailers you trust, and avoid unfamiliar sites or sellers.

We've been ahead of the curve reviewing a host of air fryers according to our rigorous testing protocol for over two years now, with a particular emphasis on finding models that provide truly great value for money. 

We've tested, and continue to test, all of the air fryers from popular brand names, such as Ninja and Instant, alongside lesser-known brands such as COSORI and Dreo. 

What is a good price for an air fryer?

The price range for air fryers (and appliances in general) varies a lot. Because there are so many types, capabilities, performance and manufacturers, it is hard to come up with a reliable benchmark for air fryers. 

Prices tend to start from around £60 for a basic model but can ramp up to more than £200 for the largest and most-capable appliance.

Our advice is, know your budget, bring your expectations in line and then shop around for the best model you can get for that budget.

FAQs

Are Black Friday air fryer deals worth it?

While not every air fryer will have a discount applied at the time of sales events, across Black Friday 2023 we saw savings of around 50% on some of our favourite models across different events. 

These are serious savings for those who have been looking forward to buying an air fryer for some time and often allow consumers to get more for their money. We also kept track of Cyber Monday deals, which were also pretty good in 2023.

Are air fryers cheaper on Black Friday & Cyber Monday?

As we said earlier, Black Friday air fryer deals are the main event when it comes to catching one of these ultra-helpful appliances at a good price. 

In 2023, there was a chance to pick up bargains from Ninja, Instant, Tower, Salter, Lakeland and more. 

Our favourite deals included a great price on the Ninja Dual Zone, which is one of our top-rated appliances ever. 

We've also noticed that some of the best Black Friday & Cyber Monday air fryer deals could be found on air fryers that have been in the market for a year or two. 

What's the best low price air fryer?

Here at Ideal Home, we have two air fryers tied for the accolade of being our most affordable favourites: the COSORI Lite and the Instant 4 in 1. Both have an RRP of £100, but we're confident you'll be able to find them on Black Friday for much less. 

Though there are air fryers available for the lowest prices (we're talking extremely cheap, we'd always recommend choosing a reputable brand over one you've not heard of before. We've tested a few from COSORI, which are available on Amazon, and we also love Tower air fryers, which have great affordable manual air fryers, like the Tower T17021.

Which air fryer should I buy?

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 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, like the Ninja FlexDrawer Air Fryer, so the festive period is a great excuse to upgrade to something 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

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. 

Our favourite oven air fryers which we've tried are detailed in our Lakeland Digital Air Fryer Oven review and our Sage Smart Oven Air Fryer review. These two air fryers proved useful for cooking different elements of a meal in one go, and also make cleaning easier thanks to their tray systems. 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.
