It’s highly likely that air fryers will be at the top of thousands of Christmas lists this year.
Particularly as they cut down cooking time and use less energy than traditional ovens – meaning less money on household bills.
Perhaps you’re looking to treat a loved one to a handy air fryer this Christmas, or maybe you want to try one out for youself? Well, Black Friday is the perfect time to grab one at a discount.
Lara Brittain, a kitchen expert at Currys, said: ‘The air fryer has really taken off as a firm kitchen staple. Never has there been a kitchen appliance that has so quickly captured the nation’s attention. In fact, Currys has seen a 204% increase in popularity of air fryers in 2022 compared to 2021.
‘Over the last six months, sales have well over doubled air fryers (148% increase), and they’re not stopping flying off the shelves.
‘With the popularity of this multifunctional appliance only getting hotter, the nation is obsessed with what can be air fried and the time saved by using it, not to mention the efficiency.’
The good news is that retailers are flooded with brilliant air fryer deals for Black Friday – which means you can snap up the kitchen appliance for a whole lot less.
We’ve rounded up some of the best promotions this year – just be quick, as we have a feeling these will sell out pretty soon.
