Air fryers may very well be the modern day cult. If you’re friends with the owner of one, you’ll no doubt have heard them endlessly praise the virtues of their machine. No wonder, all the crispy, delicious taste of fried food, cooked with a fraction of the oil. It’s a win-win.
They’re economical to run too: Uswitch has worked out the average cost of running an air fryer to cook popular meals.
If you’re planning a salmon dinner, an air fryer will not only give tender results, but will also cost just 5 pence to cook for 12 minutes, compared to 11p in an oven. Air fried chicken wings will also take the same amount of time and cost just 5p versus 60min in the oven at a cost of 42p.
No wonder people love air fryers so much.
If you’ve been considering investing in one, now’s your chance to join the air fryer fan club.
