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.

Uniworld fryers start at $395 and their most expensive fryer costs $395. The second highest average fryer price out of all brands is Uniworld fryers with an average price of $395.

Severin fryers range in price from $438 to $466, and the average price of Severin fryers is $301 which is the third highest average price of all fryer brands.

Fryer Brands - Average Ratings

We have evaluated 83 expert reviews and 17,068 user reviews for fryers and used this data to calculate the average rating for each brand of fryer. Tefal is the top rated fryer brand with an average rating of 91%. Philips is the second best brand with 81% and DeLonghi is the third best brand with 78%.

Biggest Fryer Retailers

We found 53 current offers for fryers from eBay making it the biggest fryer retailer. That is over 5 times bigger than the second biggest retailer, Overstock for whom we found 9 current offers for fryers. The third biggest retailer is Factory Outlet Store with 1 current fryer offers.

When Are Most New Fryers Released?

Most new fryers tend to be released between April and June. June was the biggest month in 2020 for new fryers, with six new fryers released that month. The biggest month in 2019 for new fryer releases was April, with 10 new fryers released that month. 12 new fryers were released in June 2018 making it the biggest month that year for new fryer releases.

How Fast Do Fryer Prices Drop After Release?

On average fryers drop in price by 5% in the first 6 months after release.

That means a saving of $1 on a typical $24 new fryer if you wait 6 months before buying.

Powers

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

Comparing all fryers, the powers range from 140W to 10,000W. The powers of the majority of fryers range from 1,400W to 1,700W. The fryer with the biggest power is the Princess Superior Fryer, which is a 3,200W fryer and sells for $0.00. The TWINBIRD EP-4694PW, which sells for $0.00, has the smallest power and is a 680W fryer.

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.

Comparing all fryers, the fryer food capacities range from 0.3kg to 20kg. The fryer food capacities of most fryers range from 0.8kg to 1.2kg. The fryer with the biggest fryer food capacity is the Uniworld UGF72, which is a 20kg fryer food capacity fryer and can be purchased for $395.00. The fryer with the smallest fryer food capacity is the Applica HF110SBD, which is a 0.4kg fryer food capacity fryer and sells for $126.18.

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.

Most new fryers are fryers with a low fat frying function. 223 out of 408 fryers on Kagoo are fryers with 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. 51 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. 96.2% of their fryer prices were the cheapest that could be found anywhere.
