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.

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.

Easy-to-Clean

Finally, 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.

The top rated fryer brand is DeLonghi with an average rating of 88%. The second best brand is Princess with 85% and the third best brand is Swan with 84%.

Biggest Fryer Retailers

The biggest fryer retailer by number of products currently for sale is eBay. We found 30 current fryer offers from eBay. The second biggest fryer retailer is Amazon US with 19 offers. That means eBay is much bigger than Amazon US when it comes to fryers. Newegg US is the third biggest retailer with 5 current offers.

When Are Most New Fryers Released?

We looked at the release dates for new fryers over the last 3 years, but couldn't see any evident pattern. March was the biggest month last year for new fryers, with 24 new fryers released that month. In July 2015 27 new fryers were released making it the biggest month that year for new fryer releases. The biggest month in 2014 for new fryer releases was September, with 21 new fryers released that month.

How Fast Do Fryer Prices Drop After Release?

In the first 6 months after release, fryers drop in price by 10% on average. If you are prepared to wait then you could save an average of $3 on a typical $34 new fryer by waiting 6 months before buying.

Capacities

This denotes how much food the fryer can hold at once, measured in litres.

Comparing all fryers, the capacities range from 0.14L to 20L. The capacities of the majority of fryers range from 2.5L to 3.3L. The fryer with the biggest capacity is the UniworldUGF-72, which is a 20L capacity fryer and can be purchased for $374.99. The UniworldUGF-72, which is available at $0.00, has the smallest capacity and is a 0.14L capacity fryer.

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

Powers

This is the power level of the fryer, measured in watts.

Across the range of fryers, the powers range from 200W to 10,000W. The powers of the majority of fryers range from 1,400W to 1,800W. The ChefmanRJ07-M-SS has the biggest power. This fryer is a 10,000W fryer and currently retails for $23.99. The ChefmanRJ07-M-SS, which can be purchased for $38.85, has the smallest power and is an 840W 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.

Types

We found 138 fryers that are Single fryers, which makes this the most common type amongst new fryers. The second most common type amongst new fryers is Double. We found 13 fryers that are Double fryers.

Biggest Fryer Retailers

The biggest fryer retailer by number of products currently for sale is eBay. We found 30 current fryer offers from eBay. The second biggest fryer retailer is Amazon US with 19 offers. That means eBay is much bigger than Amazon US when it comes to fryers. Newegg US is the third biggest retailer with 5 current offers.

Which Are the Cheapest Retailers for Fryers?

With the cheapest price on 27 fryers, eBay is most frequently the cheapest fryer retailer.

Proportion of Fryers for Which Each Retailer is Cheapest?

With the cheapest price on 90% of its fryers, eBay is most frequently the cheapest fryer retailer.
