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.

The top three fryer brands are Tefal, Philips and DeLonghi. Tefal has an average rating of 92%, Philips has an average rating of 84% and DeLonghi has an average rating of 79%.

Biggest Fryer Retailers

We found 62 current offers for fryers from eBay making it the biggest fryer retailer. That is over 6 times bigger than the second biggest retailer, Overstock for whom we found 9 current offers for fryers. The third biggest retailer is Walmart with 2 current fryer offers.

When Are Most New Fryers Released?

November to January is the most common period for new fryers to be released in. For the latest fryer features you may want to consider waiting until November 2020. Alternatively you might be able to buy one of the current fryers cheaper in November once the latest models have been released. The biggest month last year for new fryer releases was January, with one new fryers released that month. June was the biggest month in 2018 for new fryers, with 14 new fryers released that month. 18 new fryers were released in November 2017 making it the biggest month that year for new fryer releases.

How Fast Do Fryer Prices Drop After Release?

In the first 6 months after release, fryers drop in price by 4% on average.

If you are prepared to wait then you could save an average of $1 on a typical $24 new fryer by waiting 6 months before buying.

Powers

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

The powers of fryers range from 140W to 10,000W. The powers of the majority of fryers range from 1,400W to 1,700W. The TriStar FR-6937, which currently retails for $0.00, has the biggest power and is a 3,600W fryer. The TWINBIRD EP-4694PW, which can be purchased 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.

Across the range of fryers, the fryer food capacities range from 0.3kg to 20kg. The fryer food capacities of most fryers range from 1kg to 1.5kg. The fryer with the biggest fryer food capacity is the Uniworld UGF-72, which is a 20kg fryer food capacity fryer and is priced at $0.00. The Nesco DF12, which is priced at $58.61, has the smallest fryer food capacity and is a 0.4kg fryer food capacity fryer.

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.

The number of new fryers that do and are fryers without a low fat frying function is roughly the same. 206 out of 392 do 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.

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. 95.2% of their fryer prices were the cheapest that could be found anywhere.
