Best Air Fryer Reviews – Our Top Picks
In the table above are our current top picks for low fat cooking in your kitchen. Our readers tell us having the products all in one place to review is a great help when choosing which product to buy so if you’re new to this site, we hope you find this too. Below is our mini reviews section, which gives you an overview of each low fat fryer or oven. We’ll be adding more detailed reviews for those who require more information to make their informed choice, but you’ll notice the buttons to go through to Amazon.co.uk should you be ready to complete your purchase. Good luck with your air fryer adventures!
#1 Breville Halo Plus VDF105
Our #1 fryer choice for 2020 is the Halo Plus from Breville; the successor to the original Halo and now comes with a faster cooking time – 28% to be exact over the previous model. We all love time savers in the kitchen so this was a major contributing factor to making this our top choice. It’s no surprise to see Breville near the top of our list; they are a leading brand of domestic and kitchen appliances in the United Kingdom and Amazon have made a good decision in stocking Breville products in their range.
#2 Tower T14001 AirWave
If you like to see your food as it cooks then the T14001 is the one for you. Not only is it priced very competitively, it’s packed with a range of features, including cook from frozen mode. This fryer is our budget range and this is partly because it doesn’t have all of the features that you’d expect from the more premium models.
#3 Tefal ActiFry
Once again we have another Tefal fryer in our review line up and this is the baby brother of our #3 choice. This 1kg low fat fryer uses Tefal’s patented hot air system and stirring paddle for evenly cooked food. Not only is this hands-free cooking, it also means less of your time spent tending to your cooking. Set and forget!
#4 Duronic AF1 /B Healthy Oil Free Jet Multicooker
As with other models in our line up, the Duronic AF1/B is a closed cooking system that provides an odourless and splatter free cooking experience. It has a cool exterior so if safety is a concern (e.g children in the home) then this will be an important buying consideration.
#5 Tefal ActiFry 2 in 1
Tefal have the taken the ActiFry one step further with this 2 in 1 model, with the inclusion of a cooking plate above the bowl assembly, meaning there are more variations to cook a complete meal from just one appliance. If you’re looking for the best air fryer for cooking an entire meal, this is it.
#6 Tefal X-Large ActiFry Express
This is a large air fryer and the 3rd Tefal model in the line up. With its impressive 1.5KG capacity, this extra large fryer is ideal for large families (up to six people) with big appetites. Not only is it larger, it’s also faster than the Tefal 1KG model, cooking up to 30 per cent faster. This the best air fryer if you need a larger capacity.
#7 Tefal ActiFry Plus
The Tefal ActiFry Plus has a versatile range of features, is easy to clean and great value. When there are five million households in the world using a Tefal ActiFry, it’s no surprise to see this in our top ten list. Introduced to the UK in 2007, it’s been used to cook healthy, low fat meals in homes up and down the country.
#8 Philips HD9220/20 Oil Free
The team at Philips have done a cracking job in producing the HD9220/20 Airfryer. This is one of the smaller capacity fryers we have reviewed but depending on your requirements, this might be the ideal choice for you.
#9 Russell Hobbs 20810 Purifry
Here we have a fryer by another well known brand, Russell Hobbs. This model comes in white and black and will suit most kitchen counters, blending in with other appliances.
The GOURMETmaxx is a new entry in our line-up of low fat fryers. It’s German designed and engineered so you can expect a very good quality fryer. It uses a basket and handle design, with no viewing window.
In looks, it’s very similar to the Phillips HD9220 model, with a sleek, glossy black finish which compliment most kitchen finishes. Read the full review here.
If you’re looking for the best, unbiased reviews, so you can start cooking in a healthier way, our site will help you find the right healthy fryer for you. Whether that’s the Tower or Tefal model, you can read our detailed reviews of each here on our site.
Where to buy?
In addition to Amazon, which is our recommend place to buy from, health fryers can also be purchased from the retailers listed below.
With over 800 retail stores in the UK, Argos is a well-known name on the high street. They offer all kinds of household appliances including digital air fryers. In our experience, their prices are not always as competitive and the downside of buying there is having to go to the store to pick-up your item, which in some locations could mean paying to park too. That said, the click and collect feature on the Argos website is straightforward and efficient. They do offer delivery for an extra cost, and when factored in, often isn’t as good a deal as offered by Amazon.
Do Tesco Air Sell Fryers?
Do Tesco sell their own brand of air fryer?
No. Well not that we’ve found anyway. There’s no mention of own brand air fryers on the Tesco website and our reviewers have never seen them in-store either.
Can you buy the Tower air fryer at Tesco?
It doesn’t look like it. Tower air fryers sell well in the UK, not just on Amazon. We’re not sure why Tesco don’t sell them. Read our review here.
Can you buy the Breville Halo health fryer at Tesco?
We haven’t found it available in any stores. No mention of it on the Tesco website either. Read our review here.
Is the Tefal ActiFry 2 in 1 available at Tesco?
We haven’t found it to be available at Tesco, either online or in-store. Read our review of the Tefal 2 in 1 ActiFry here.
Is the Philips Air Fryer available from Tesco?
No, the Philips range of air fryers does not appear to be stocked at Tesco. Read our Philips air fryer review here.
As Tesco Direct is no longer in operation, the choice of products offered is limited to what is stocked in your nearest store, but there’s no guarantee you’ll find air fryers stocked there. In fact, when we looked online, we couldn’t find any air fryers sold by Tesco. You may get lucky by checking in their Tesco Extra and Tesco Superstore stores but you may also be wasting your journey. The range of air fryers at Amazon is far superior to Tesco and you can get it delivered to home. If you’re looking for your first air fryer but can’t find anything at Tesco, then take a look at the Breville Halo.
Lakeland stocks premium end kitchenware products with prices to match. There’s only around 60 stores in the UK so you may not be lucky enough to live near one. We occasionally receive a request asking us to “please review the Lakeland air fryer” and we must admit, when we first received a request like that, we were completely unaware that Lakeland even offered a health fryer. So after some research, we did indeed discover that Lakeland do offer an air fryer complete with touchscreen controls. We only review fryers sold on Amazon so we won’t be reviewing Lakeland’s model, but from what we see, it’s closest to the Morphy Richards 480001 fryer.
Morrisons is a supermarket where you might find air fryers stocked in their bigger stores. There’s around 500 stores nationwide so hopefully there’s one near you. The model we’ve seen stocked in some Morrisons is the Weight Watchers Compact Air Fryer 2L. We don’t have a review of this model but it’s most identical to the Philips HD9220/20 model (read the review here).
The B&M stores are springing up all over the place it seems, with many people now shopping there following the void left by the demise of Woolworths some years ago. We’ve seen some air fryers stocked in B&M – including the Tower Compact 1.5L and the Weight Watchers hot air fryers. Prices are competitive and often will have further discounts applied but you’ll need to be quick. There’s no stock checker on the website so even if you spot a bargain, it’s no guarantee you’ll get it. The good thing about Amazon, it will show if a product is in stock at the point you buy, so you can be confident you’ll receive your order promptly, next day potentially with Prime membership.
ASDA has over 600 store locations in the UK so you’re likely not too far away from one. They have a limited range of air fryers available both in-store and from their ASDA Direct operation. Buying an ASDA air fryer is an option you have but as we mentioned above, Amazon have a far wider range of fryers available, giving you more choice.
There is an own brand Wilko air fryer we found which is priced competitively and comes with a 2-year guarantee. Not every store will stock this though, so you’ll need to check with your nearest store. There is an order and collect option but rather cheekily, Wilko charge £2 for orders less than £30! If you want it delivered to your home, Wilko charge £5 for this, with next day delivery costing £8. An alternative to the Wilko health fryer is the Philips HD9220/20 model which we reviewed here.
A Lidl air fryer? Yes indeed. Lidl occasionally have their own brand (Silvercrest) health fryer on a weekly offer, usually released as a ‘Thursday deal’. Looking at the model, it’s priced competitively although it’s not the largest capacity fryer available. The nearest to it that we’ve reviewed is the 20810 Purify from Russell Hobbs.
Sainsburys is another huge name in the supermarket space with over 1400 stores nationwide. We had a search for a ‘Sainsburys air fryer’, but it seems none are available! If you’re local to a Sainsburys store then feel free to check for health fryers there, but if not, check out our reviews above.
John Lewis & Partners, yet another giant of the UK high street have a range of air fryers in their product range. Their famous ‘Never Knowingly Undersold’ slogan has given confidence to their customer base for many years that they offer the best prices, with price difference refunds avilable if a customer finds a better price within 28 days of the sale. However, it’s worth noting that this price promise does not extend to online prices. If you’re after a John Lewis air fryer, at the time of writing they stock four different brands of air fryer including Tefal. You can order online, but remember there is no price matching against other online prices, e.g. Amazon.
