Five of the best air fryers for minimum-oil cooking

With prices ranging from £43 to £249

1

Ninja Foodi Max Pro Health Grill, Flat Plate & Air Fryer

Ninja Foodi Max Pro Health Grill, Flat Plate & Air Fryer

This is more than just an air fryer, hence the price and larger-than-average size (44cm long with a 3.8l capacity). You can also use it to griddle, grill, roast, bake, dehydrate and reheat.

Tefal ActiFry FZ729840 Air Fryer

Tefal ActiFry FZ729840 Air Fryer

With just a little oil, the ActiFry can make up to six portions of perfectly crisp, fluffy chips. The basket rotates to give even results and it has a clear lid so you can check progress while cooking.

3

Instant Pot Duo Crisp & Air Fryer

Instant Pot Duo Crisp & Air Fryer

Combining an air fryer and a pressure cooker, this versatile appliance has 11 cooking modes (including steam, sous vide and slow cook) and a large 8l capacity. Chips could be crispier though.

4

Philips Essential Air Fryer XL

Philips Essential Air Fryer XL

Good for larger families with a 6.2l capacity, this is a four-in-one gadget that can bake, grill and roast as well as air fry. Using up to a teaspoon of oil, fish fingers and sausages can be cooked in half the time of a normal oven.

5

Tower T17023 Air Fryer

Tower T17023 Air Fryer

This budget powerhouse is simple, compact and quick – chips take just 20 minutes, sausages 12-15. Although compact, it has a deep 2.2l basket. There’s no digital display, which is fair enough at this price.
