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 Retailers, Prices and Features

Fryer Prices

We currently list 180 fryers ranging from £15 to £1,425. A new fryer costs on average £108 and 80% of fryers are priced between £34 and £186. The Oster CKSTDF102 is the cheapest fryer at only £15, and Miele CS 1411 F is the most expensive at £1,425.

Fryer Brands - Price Range

The second highest average fryer price out of all brands is AEG fryers with an average price of £1,222. AEG fryers start at £1,222 and their most expensive fryer costs £1,222.

The third highest average fryer price out of all brands is Smeg fryers with an average price of £539. Smeg fryers range in price from £539 to £539.

Fryer Brands - Average Ratings

We have evaluated 34 expert reviews and 3,713 user reviews for fryers and used these reviews to calculate the average rating for each brand of fryer. Tefal is the top rated fryer brand with an average rating of 82%. Philips is the second best brand with 78% and DeLonghi is the third best brand with 64%.

Biggest Fryer Retailers

The biggest fryer retailer by number of products currently for sale is eBay. We found 156 current fryer offers from eBay. The second biggest retailer is Amazon UK with 40 offers. That means eBay is over 3 times bigger than Amazon UK when it comes to fryers. Currys is the third biggest retailer with 23 current offers.

When Are Most New Fryers Released?

The most common period for new fryers to be released in is between July and September. 17 new fryers were released in August 2017 making it the biggest month that year for new fryer releases. September was the biggest month in 2016 for new fryers, with 62 new fryers released that month. In July 2015 24 new fryers were released making it the biggest month that year for new fryer releases.

How Fast Do Fryer Prices Drop After Release?

On average, in the first 6 months after release, fryers drop in price by 14%. That means a saving of £9 on a typical £60 new fryer if you wait 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 is a 6,500W fryer and is on sale for £0.00. The fryer with the smallest power is the Logik L30PFS12, which is a 200W fryer and is on sale for £19.98.

Generally speaking, a higher power level means that the fryer will be more powerful, heating the oil to higher temperatures faster, and cooking the food more efficiently so that it doesn't spend as much time sitting in the oil, meaning it will be (somewhat) healthier.

Fryer Food Capacities

'Capacity' denotes how much food the fryer can hold at once, measured in kilograms.

The fryer food capacities of fryers range from 0.3kg to 17kg. The fryer food capacities of most fryers range from 1kg to 1.5kg. The fryer with the biggest fryer food capacity is the Tower T14001, which is a 17kg fryer food capacity fryer and sells for £39.00. The fryer with the smallest fryer food capacity is the Severin FR 2437, which is a 0.3kg fryer food capacity fryer and is on sale for £0.00.

The bigger the capacity of the fryer, the more food can be cooked at once.

Low Fat Frying Functions

A low-fat frying function serves to fry food using only a fraction of the oil normally used.

The number of new fryers that do and are fryers without a low fat frying function is roughly the same. 156 out of 334 fryers do are fryers with a low fat frying function and 176 out of 334 are fryers without a low fat frying function.

Because it uses far less oil, a low-fat frying option produces far healthier food than standard frying.

Which Are the Cheapest Retailers for Fryers?

The chart below helps you decide which retailer is normally cheapest for buying fryers. For each retailer it shows the total number of fryers where they currently have a market leading price. The chart below helps you decide which retailer is normally cheapest for buying fryers. For each retailer we took all of their prices and looked at what proportion of those prices where the cheapest on the market. The cheapest retailer that we found was eBay. 130 of their fryer prices were the cheapest that could be found anywhere.

Proportion of Fryers for Which Each Retailer is Cheapest?

Assessing how cheap each retailer is for fryers by counting the number of cheapest prices for that retailer, makes the retailers that offer the greatest number of fryer prices more likely to offer the greatest number of cheapest prices. The chart below considers the proportion of each retailer's fryer prices that are the cheapest compared to other retailers. The cheapest retailer that we found using this approach was eBay. 83.3% of their fryer prices were the cheapest that could be found anywhere.
