Best budget air fryers under £80 in the Amazon sale if a Ninja is out of your price range

By Staff

Looking for an affordable air fryer? We’ve found the best budget ones in the Amazon sale for quick, easy and healthy meals

Air fryers have taken the world by storm, and for good reason – the nifty kitchen appliance is often much cheaper to run than a traditional oven as well as cooking meals at a faster speed. Better yet, an air fryer has the ability to cook healthier meals that contain less fat as they use air during the cooking process instead of oil.

Arguably the biggest name on the market when it comes to air fryers is Ninja and while the bestselling brand does run a number of different sales on its website (you can currently get the Ninja Air Fryer Max for £99 reduced from £189.99) their air fryers are still some of the most expensive models around with most costing upwards of £150.

If you’re looking to spend under £100 on an air fryer, savvy shoppers are turning to lesser known air fryer brands that can be found on the likes of Amazon – leaving them glowing reviews having been left more than impressed with the results.

We’ve scoured the Amazon sale to find the best air fryers as rated by customers – ranging from £30 to £80. Many users have even compared the air fryers below to Ninja, with one person claiming that this particular £79.99 air fryer “does everything a Ninja does at a fraction of the price”.
