With the best performing air Fryers costing well in excess of £200 there is a market for budget models which, although lacking some of the features and versatility of the high-end models still perform well, cook evenly and are of decent build quality.
Our recommended best budget buy is this VonShef 3.5 litre (2.5l food basket capacity) model, we find it is easy to use, gimmick-free and gives consistently good results.
If you want an Air Fryer primarily to air fry food then this is what you need it will do your chips chicken, fish etc… as well as roast, grill and bake.
It won’t do curries or stir-fries and like most air fryers will not handle battered food well as the batter gets blown off by the air flow.
It has an adjustable temperature dial, an adjustable 60-minute timer. For safety, there is a cool-touch handle, non-slip feet and a thermal overload cut out to prevent overheating.
The non-stick basket and tray are not dishwasher safe but we found washing normally in soapy water got them clean.
Users like it and out of 167 verified owners we have a 92% satisfaction rating.
There is also a 5-litre model available
