Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

QWhat is a hot air fryer?
AMany recent models of fryers use super-heated air rather than oil to cook the food. This generates better results (the food is less soggy) and uses a tiny fraction of the oil usually used. Therefore it is much healthier!
QWhat is the difference between a single and double fryer?
AAs the name suggests, double fryers have 2 different cooking receptacles, so 2 sets of food can be cooked at once. This is most commonly found on larger and commercial fryers.

Fryer Buying Guide

Fryers use very hot oil to cook food quickly and thoroughly - the food is quickly cooked by the hot oil, often resulting in a crispy outside, but a tender inside. Most people connect home fryers with chips - allowing you to easily recreate the crispy, fluffy chips found in restaurants and cafes. However they can be used for many other different types of food, including fish, vegetables, samosas or chicken. Due to the high temperatures involved in the cooking procedure, modern fryers have significant safety features to minimise the chance of accidents, and contain pre-set modes for the most commonly-cooked foods.

Capacity

All our fryers have a food capacity, measured in kilograms. The larger the capacity, the more food you can cook in one go - this may be especially useful for large families. However larger fryers also have a significantly larger footprint, and so will take up more counter space in your kitchen.

Power Levels

All of our fryers are given a power level, rated in watts. The higher the wattage, the more power the fryer has. This translates to faster and more efficiently cooked food, but also to higher electricity bills. Fryers tend to be quite power hungry, so it may be prudent not to automatically buy the device with the highest power - a good mid-point between power and cost-efficiency is important.

Given that even the healthiest fryer produces a lot of grease and mess, it is a good idea to clean the fryer after every use. Therefore it may be helpful to check that your chosen model is marked as easy-to-clean, meaning that it has been designed for stress-free cleaning. Some models even have parts that are safe to put in the dishwasher, making them extremely easy to clean and take care of.

Low Fat & Air Frying

While traditionally deep fat frying has been seen as an immensely unhealthy form of cooking, there are several healthier options available. Low fat fryers are specially designed to use less oil than standard fryers, meaning the resulting food has a lower calorie count, and is therefore healthier. Under these systems a single teaspoon of oil will suffice for an entire portion of chips, so the calorie count can be a mere fraction of what it would be using a traditional method.

A growing section of the healthy frying market is so-called ‘air’ fryers - a range of cookers that use superheated air to fry the food instead of oil. Because they use very little or no oil (some models use a very small amount of oil to 'kick start' the air heating) the resulting food is far lower in calories and fat. Indeed, tests have shown that with a 300g portion of chips, airfrying reduced the calories from 717 to 576! Also, because they don’t use oil you don’t have to worry about disposing of the used frying oil - which makes them far more ecologically friendly as well.

Generally speaking these low-fat and air fryers are more expensive than their traditional counterparts. However, given how much lower in both calories and fat the resulting food is, the health benefits may far outweigh the extra expenditure.

Fryer Brands - Average Ratings

We have analysed 73 expert reviews and 14,114 user reviews for fryers and used these reviews to evaluate the average rating for each brand of fryer. The top three fryer brands are Tefal, Philips and DeLonghi. Tefal has an average rating of 91%, Philips has an average rating of 82% and DeLonghi has an average rating of 78%.

Biggest Fryer Retailers

The biggest fryer retailer by number of products currently for sale is eBay. We found 99 current fryer offers from eBay. The second biggest retailer is Robert Dyas with 26 offers. That means eBay is over 3 times bigger than Robert Dyas when it comes to fryers. Currys is the third biggest retailer with 23 current offers.

When Are Most New Fryers Released?

Most new fryers tend to be released between April and June. That means that most of the latest fryer technology was released in within the last 3 months, and now is good time to buy. The biggest month last year for new fryer releases was June, with five new fryers released that month. April was the biggest month in 2019 for new fryers, with 10 new fryers released that month. In June 2018, 12 new fryers were released making it the biggest month that year for new fryer releases.

How Fast Do Fryer Prices Drop After Release?

In the first 6 months after release, fryers drop in price by 8% on average.

If you are prepared to wait then you could save an average of £3 on a typical £36 new fryer by waiting 6 months before buying.

Powers

'Power' is the power level of the fryer, measured in watts.

The powers of fryers range from 140W to 10,000W. The powers of most fryers range from 1,400W to 1,700W. The fryer with the biggest power is the Bartscher SNACK IV, which i
