The 10 Best Air Fryer Uk Models For 2019

air fryer for chicken


Which Air Fryer Is BEST ?

Here we have worked through the top 10 best air fryer UK models currently available.

When choosing an air-fryer, you have to consider it’s performance, it’s reliability, and how good it can cook food.

What are the risks of continuing to eat unhealthy deep fried foods?


Heart disease, strokes and diabetes aren’t just an imaginary thing.  Over 100,000 people each year in the Uk suffer from a stroke from heart disease.

That’s one person every 5 minutes.

It’s really quite a daunting thing to think about.  Your life on hold, held up and having to take things far slower, if you survive, that is.

If you want to continue putting deep fried unhealthy food inside you then you are most certainly on a direct road to “destination ill”.

Make a conscious decision today to just change some of these habits and air fry your food instead of deep frying it.

An air fryer cooks food with air (and sometimes a tiny bit of oil) and represents a far healthier way of deep frying food – and it REALLY DOES taste pretty good too!

The Duronic AF1 /B Healthy Oil Free 1500W Air Fryer


It’s hard to put this as a second favourite budget air fryer because for over a year it was our number one favourite low cost air fryer.  However even the best have to step aside sometimes.

We are still madly in love with this air fryer (and we bought one for our home, and we use it day in day out, and it does really well), but the pricing is now not one of the cheapest, and secondly it’s capacity is only 2.2 litres whereas the Dihl is 4 litres.

So it’s our number 2 for cheapest air fryer choices.

Since we first created this article a year ago, we have updated it a few times, and time after time this air fryer has proven itself to be an exceptionally good budget air fryer.  Sure it’s not perfect but for the money (under £70 typically) it does a really good job.

How do we know this?  We bought this, and tested it (see here) and still use day in day out (it’s a keeper!)

Some manufacturers don’t really have to try and wow you with their sales patter because their products speak for themselves. This is the case with the Duronic AF1 air fryer.

Offering a great first foray into air frying, the AF1 is available in both Black and White.

How big is it?

  • 34 x 29 x 31cm

How much can it cook?

  • It has a 2.2 litre capacity which is enough for 2 to 3 people however with most air fryers you’re never going to squeeze in meat, veg, potatoes etc for 3 to 4 people. Remember it needs very little oil  (If you need to go LARGE then look at the Dihl air fryer, or for super large look for the Vonshef 5 litre).
  • With our own personal real testing we found we could make enough chips for 4 children in about 15 to 18 minutes.

What can it cook?

Pretty much most things that can be cooked in a conventional cooker, as well as things that are cooked in a deep fat fryer, but the likes of:

  • Chips
  • Chicken Wings
  • Lamb Chops
  • Sweat corns
  • Spring Rolls
  • Samosas
  • Spring Rolls
  • Prawns
  • Fried Cod
  • Roasted Vegetables
  • Roasted Soups
  • And even desserts!

The main features of the Duronic AF1 (taken from Amazon)

  • The Duronic AF1 uses air circulating technology on your food with little or no oil making food healthier without compromising on the taste.
  • Adjustable temperature control ensures food is cooked to the appropriate temperature
  • Closed cooking system provides a safe odour and splatter free cooking experience with a cool touch exterior
  • Dishwasher safe fry bowl and air fryer basket. Comes in Black and White
  • Compact size – easily fits on a kitchen counter and blends in with existing appliances
  • A small air fryer in size, but not in features or capacity – be prepared to be blown away!
  • As far as air fryer offers goes, there is little need to look out for the best deals when this air fryer really does do a splendid job.

Pro’s and Con’s of the Duronic AF1 Jet air fryer / multicooker

Our thoughts on the Duronic AF1 air fryer / multicooker

For well under half the price of the premium branded models and with all the same great features you cannot go wrong.

The AF1 has all the style charm and cooking capabilities you’ll need for most things.

The only drawback is it is limited to 200 degrees so certain foods that require much higher temperatures may not be suited. The vast majority of foods are fine however.

We love it’s hyper drive temperature display dial – it just makes you think you’re the captain of your own spaceship setting warp factor 10!

The only real downside we consider (and it’s very minor) is that the basket may release from the tray IF you are carrying it from the unit over to a new counter top, AND you somehow managed to lift up the safety guard and press the basket release.. but it’s extremely unlikely so just take care where your fingers go.

If this is your first time with an air fryer then this is definitely worthy of attention, as is the Salter air fryer (read our own review on the Ek2205 by Salter) and the Berg air fryer mainly for the price points and the larger capacities.

Of course, a good air fryer wouldn’t be a good air fryer unless it had an “auto off” function and a sound timer to let you know when the food is done. This has both, so in pretty much every way you just have to decide if this is the style that would suit your kitchen the best.

The Tefal ActiFry Low Fat Air Fryer

Tefal Air Fryer Review – a rotating air fryer that has been used and trusted by millions.


Did you know? – Over 7 million actifry air fryers have been produced… !  Read about it here..

(Click here if you’d like to see our “full” review for this fryer (opens in a new window)


Available is this, the 1.2kg capacity model, or you can change it to the traditional 1kg model when on the Amazon page for it.  The traditional model is also a fair bit cheaper too.


This Tefal Actifry is the latest version of what is arguably the best healthy fryer on the market – although everyone will have their favourite and own opinion, it is hard to beat the Actifry machine.  This particular model is the latest and replaces an earlier traditional model.

It’s a 1.2kg capacity electric air fryer.  This means it can feed a family of four with ease.

The best Actifry bar none.

Feeds generously, looks superb and works very well.

Tefal Actifry plus 1.2kg air fryer
The handsome Tefal Actifry Plus 1.2kg


It’s not “oil free” – although frozen foods do not need any added oil.  With this Tefal fryer you simply add a teaspoon of oil and that’s it – fried food without 99% of the fat!

How big is it?

  • The tfal actifry measures about 9.5 inches high, 12 inches wide and 16 inches long

Does it smell? Air fryer vs deep fryer

  • To be honest it is pretty much virtually odourless.  With a teaspoon of oil you are not going to be bombarded with the smell of oil, so throw out any notions of traditional deep fat fryers and embrace the new!
  • Traditional deep fryers cook the food in hot oil and the smell is instantly recognizable as “deep fried” whereas a hot air fryer circulates very hot air in a very clever way so that the food cooks evenly from all angles.

Any more recipes for this?

What can you cook with the Tefal Actifry?

  • Pretty much anything – as is the case for most air fryers.  We are not just talking about fluffy crisp tasty chips cooked with 100 times less oil, we are talking curries, chilli con carne’s, frozen meats, roast meats, vegetables and so much more.  Remember it’s also way more healthier than deep fryers!

Here’s the link to those tefal recipes to look at (from an independent website), or direct from Tefal here.  Although do remember that some of the best air fryer recipes are usually found on mom and pop websites or places like youtube.  You might be interested to know that we are creating a resources for air fryer recipes here on 10 Warriors.

(Psst.. want to know what the best air fryer for chips is?  Click here)

If you fall in love with an air fryer you might just find yourself using it more and more and ultimately replacing your other cooking appliances when it comes to meal ideas.

In the box you get of course:

  • The Tefal Actifry 1.2kg unit
  • x1 Actifry oil spoon – for popping oil in (I’m sure any spoon would do though!)
  • 1 Recipe book – so plenty of meal ideas to explore such as Chicken Tikka Masala, a vegetable stir fry and even Mediterranean style calamari recipes.
  • 1 Instruction book to help guide you round it and how to use it.

Cooking with the Actifry is a breeze

Pop your food in and add a spoon of your chosen oil then simply close the lid.  The Actifry will cook at a constant 170 degrees C approx.  All you need to do is set the timer – and the timer can be set up to 99 minutes.

When done, you’ll hear an audible timer to let you know everything is done.

Besides this 4 person version there is also a larger “family version Actifry that will feed up to 6 people (up to 1.5kg of food) – you can see that one here.

Also, if you want to throw in some extra food halfway through (such as vegetables) you can do.  Simply open the lid and the Actifry will pause the cooking to allow you access, and then simply resume where it left off right after you close the lid again.

When you’ve finished, cleaning is just as simple – you can pop the removable ceramic coated pan, plus paddle and also lid straight into the dishwasher – so guess what?  No hand washing needed.

Images of the Tefal Actifry:

The Tefal Actifry is a tried, trusted and tested clear winner when it comes to healthy airfry cooking.  The vast majority of people who own one of these have indicated they are extremely happy with it.

What’s not to love about tasty healthier food with 100 times less oil, no smells and easy to clean?

Our thoughts on the Tefal Actifry 1.2kg cooker

Really and truly these are hard to beat.  This air fryer review showcases one of the most successful air fryers to ever hit the market.  The Actifry range uses a paddle that slowly moves the food round for even cooking whereas most others have the food in a pull out tray/basket or lift up tray/basket with an area below to catch drips.

Nobody can argue about the benefits of healthier eating.  After all if you could eat food that tastes stunning yet is immeasurably better for you – then it really serves up as a no brainer.

Couple in the fact you can cook a mouth watering array of different foods and really there isn’t anything stopping you!

If you need something a bit bigger then splash out a bit more and opt for the 1.5kg model (known as XL) as this will feed up to 6 average people instead of 4.

There is also an Express model to consider.

The impeccable Philips HD9621/91 Viva Collection Airfryer

Our thoughts on the Philips HD9261 90 healthier oil free airfryer

Overall we really loved testing this machine.  It is a beautiful machine that will happily grace the counter top of many a kitchen up and down the UK.

Grill, bake, roast or fry – it’s your choice what you decide to do with this but the versatility is there at your disposal.

We did have a little hesitation when we first opened the box.  Instead of saying 100 times less oil (like the Actifry) they focus on the fact it enables you to cook in a healthier way that gives you 23% fewer calories when compared to a regular deep fat fryer.

Yes, while a reduction is good, still 23% less calories is hardly groundbreaking (is it?).  However we were initially looking at it wrong.  We believe their marketing might have missed the point or benefits, although I’m sure someone from Philips would be keen to put us right!

At the end of the day it is an air fryer and you can (if you want) pop in a tiny bit of oil.  To ease our minds we wanted to know about oil use – namely how much oil is needed.  For machines that are supposed to be far healthier than regular deep fat fryers we thought this was important to know.  Actifry machines are touted as using “just a small amount of oil” whereas the marketing for this Philips hot air fryer is a little different.

Philips focus on telling you other facts.  Facts such as: 23% less calories.

Their marketing suggests “oil free” as with most air fryers, however many recipes still suggest some oil can be added to change the taste to something more akin to what we “enjoy” (seemingly).

Well, we decided to give this machine a go without any oil.  In fact some of us gave the food a light spray with frylight and came to the conclusion that the food was still very nice.  Kind of crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.  A little like oven chips.

So our conclusion of this machine is that for a start it is one of the best looking air fryers around.  It cooks wonderfully.  The timer let’s you know when cooking time is done and importantly the air fryer stops, meaning that your food won’t be overcooked if you are out out the room.  Thumbs up from us!

You can cook as healthy as you want.  Removing all the oil is one of the best things you can do for your health however a small touch of oil or spray oil can be added to suit your taste, and you will still be cooking in a far healthier way.

Philips HD9240/90 Avance Collection Airfryer

A third bigger than it’s baby brother at number 2 in our list, this Philips Airfryer XL HD9240/90 Avance collection airfryer.

Bigger and chunkier enough to feed a family of up to 5 (claimed).  When there’s more mouths to feed this is the obvious choice.  In fact it is one of our best low fat fryer models in this test… but…

As for capacity, it is in fact 3 litres.  This is big, but it’s certainly not the biggest around.

Sure it’s bigger.  It needs to be for the extra work it’s got to do.

Size wise the footprint it will take up on your worktop is 42.3 x 31.5 x 30.2 cm – a nice corner would suit it.  Compared to it’s baby brother though there is hardly anything in it size wise, just 3 or so cm on most sides so the additional counter top space taken up is hardly noticeable at all.

Like it’s baby brother the 9220, this large air fryer has all the benefits of healthy eating but in a larger size to cook for more people or hungrier mouths (if you’ve got kids you’ll know more is always better!)

Feel free to check out some of the amazing philips air fryer reviews over on Amazon.  They speak for themselves.

Our thoughts on the Philips HD9240/90 airfryer


If you expect this machine to the the total chef for all the food for all the family you will be disappointed:

It’s a beautiful machine and the larger size is definitely more welcoming but just bear in mind that if you are seeking to feed a family of 4 to 5 with say chicken and chips there won’t be enough room in this.  In realistic terms you could probably cram in about 800g chips maximum but not a deal more.

Otherwise maybe 7 to 8 chicken drumsticks or thighs in around 20 to 25 minutes.

It DOES make for a great machine if you’re doing chicken and chips for 2 to 3 people – plenty of food, and you can mix your own home made chicken drumsticks with the chips in the same basket.

HOWEVER in realistic terms, as long as you are aware this isn’t a total replacement for “all your cooking methods” you’ll be fine.  Use it to cook maybe the most fattening foods in it, to keep the fat content low, and do the rest in the oven, in a saucepan or in the microwave.

On the plus side, all of the above seems irrelevant when you actually get to grips with what you can cook with an air fryer.  There are now thousands of recipes around for virtually any meal.  Ever tried spring rolls or Moussaka cooked in one?  Start experimenting and you’ll soon be cooking up an array of tasty treats and meals in next to no time.  French fries?  Why not.  Add some Paprika to spice things up too!

The Good Looking Tower T14004 Low Fat Rapid Air Fryer with Digital Timer

Our mid priced “air fryer” in this list by a long mile and despite this it still passes many of our tests.  We wanted to include this Tower T14004 air fryer because of it’s affordability and the fact that it looks just the part of a “proper” air fryer”.

(Here is a fuller deeper review on the T14004 Tower air fryer)


Let’s explore this.

So, first of all, it’s surprisingly good looking (just as good looking as some of the more well known brands like Philips etc.).  It does the job.

Benefits of the Tower T14004 “air fryer”:

  • Eliminates the need for oil for delicious sin free meals with up to 80% less fat than a conventional fryer
  • A power air fryer that is extremely robust and hard working.
  • Uses significantly less energy and cooks three times faster
  • Generous 3.2 litre capacity makes it ideal for up to 5 servings – great for large families and household guests

Set and forget with the Tower air fryer.  It features a timer that extends up to 30 minutes with a bell sound to let you know when the time has passed.


Pro’s and Con’s

Our thoughts on the Tower T14004 “air fryer”

It’s never going to be a high end Philips or Tefal, BUT for a mid priced air fryer its really good looking and it cooks food nicely as long as you follow the instructions carefully.

Jet Hot Air Fryer: Non-Oil/Fat Deep Fried, Grill, Bake & Roast in A Healthy Way

The JML Air Fryer – heard of it?

Next up we have the JML Jet hot air fryer.

Perfect as an oil free air fryer for people on a budget.

Ever heard of JML?  Well they are the mastermind of “High Street TV”, and they are behind the hundreds of products you seen advertised on TV and in thousands of stores up and down the UK.  They were established in 2008, and are based in Harrogate, Yorkshire.  You can check them out here.


The JML Jet hot air fryer has the following features and benefits:

  • Hot, rapid air vortex technology; 360 degree rotating inner base for perfect, even cooking
  • No oil or fat, just clean, hot air; get deep fried results without the frying
  • It’s a dry air fryer with it’s own unique style – and that’s good to know!
  • Food is crispy and delicious
  • Grill, bake and roast
  • Basket and frying rack allows fat to leave your food and be discarded


Approximate measurements 30cm x 38cm x 28cm height
Bowl diameter 22.5cm
Capacity 2 litres
Weight out of box 4kg

Fairly similar footprint to many other hot air fryers – large enough for the needed use, and small enough to fit in a nice place on your counter top.

Let’s take a look at the JML Jet:

Is this the perfect air fryer?

Well, from a cost perspective it’s certainly competitive.  The capacity of this device is 2.5 litres, which is fairly standard for an air fryer (the capacities cannot be huge as they need to be kept in a tight space for the air frying to be totally effective).

We do have some minor reservations about the build quality, as in how long the lid will last.  Pretty sure with a lot of careful use it will be fine but I wouldn’t like to be too heavy handed.

Watch this video to see the benefits for yourself.  It’s from an American infomercial however you can see the benefits in the first 5 minutes.

Pro’s and Con’s of the JML Jet air fryer

Our thoughts on the JML Jet oil free airfryer

For what it is, it’s a good unit.  The unit is no longer listed on the manufacturers website, however it is actively sold in the United States.  The customer services department do answer you when asking for replacement parts (i.e. lids) so for half the cost of other sleeker designs it’s certainly the unit to gain entry into the air fryer market.

As long as you take care with the JML jet there is no reason why it cannot live happily in your home for a long time – as long as you like Lime Green.  The handle colour is not available in any other colours.

VonShef 5 Litre Air Fryer With Adjustable Temperature Control and Timer



The Vonshef 5 litre air fryer is now LOW COST and fabulous to boot!

What is NOT to love about that?  family sized, stylish and great at what it does.


  • An 80 to 200 “degrees C” temperature range.
  • A 0 to 60 minute timer (perfect for just about everything)
  • 2 year warranty
  • Superb reviews from existing customers who have bought it already

Using a fryer without oil may seem strange, unconventional and yet a bit liberating at the same time.  Suddenly you’re not just soaking everything in deep hot oil, but heating it using hot air that recirculates super efficiently.

Pretty darned good we think.

Klarstein Vitair Hot Air Fryer


Just before we “dive in”, I wanted to add that this is technically not an air fryer – as in it’s not “frying” the food.  Manufacturers are now releasing their Halogen ovens with convection units and infrared capabilities and calling them air fryers when technically they are not.  At the end of this top 10 review list I will explain the differences between convection ovens, turbo broilers (which this is), and an air fryer.

This is actually a Turbo broiler.  Also known as an oven with infrared aided heat and a convection fan.

So, that said, this machine is one one the funkiest looking units we’ve ever had the chance to review.  It looks like a motorcyle helmet or some sort of futuristic spaceship perhaps?

As well as Purple, you can also view it in 3 other colours:

What’s it like?

It is extremely handsome and would look incredibly cool in any kitchen.  It also makes delicious healthy food.

Even though it’s no “air fryer” it’s not to be dismissed as a healthy way to cook food, however you do need to be aware the food will not have that fried taste that true air fryers attempt to recreate (through “rapid air circulation”).

These machines are merely heat with a convection fan moving the heat round – however a rotating spit with this model enables for a more even cooking experience compared to other “turbo broilers” like the Tower T14001.

Let’s look at it in pictures

Pro’s and Con’s of the Klarstein Vitair

Our thoughts on the Klarstein Vitair “air fryer”

We ummed and arred for a long time, wondering whether or not to include this unit in this top 10 list of best air fryers as obviously it isn’t one.

Turbo broilers (i.e. Halogen ovens with added infrared) are basically compact Halogen convection ovens with the added benefit of infrared.

The downside is it simply isn’t ever going to fully attempt to recreate that fried food taste – which is kind of the whole reason for this review.

I wanted to include two of these types of machine within this list so that you are aware of the differences between the two types of machine (there is a more thorough explanation towards the end of this top 10 list that explains the distinct differences). 

Sure, they are both healthier options and great machines, but a true air fryer will aim for that fried taste through rapid air circulation whereas these take their heat from a Halogen bulb and a fan that assists the flow.

The rotating spit on this model takes it that step further in an attempt to remove the issues with Halogen ovens in that you do need to turn food making this model a very positive one.

Salter EK2205 Healthy Digital Hot Air Fryer

Here is the Salter air fryer, the EK2205.

Let’s see what the benefits and features of this unit are (taken direct from the Salter website).  With over 20 years experience, the Salter brand is well established and known.

  • A versatile alternative to deep fat frying, the Salter digital airfryer enables you to cook using little or no oil without losing any flavour.
  • Featuring 1400 W power, the fryer can heat up to 200° and uses a heat circulation method in order to cook your food incredibly quickly.
  • Ideal for home-made chips or wedges as well as meat, spring rolls, stuffed vegetables and quiche, it can cook a huge variety of meals.
  • Brilliantly simple to use, it has a 30 minute timer with automatic switch-off, digital touch sensitive controls and an LCD display.
  • It contains an easy to clean, removable 4.5 litre non-stick cooking basket which enables you to quickly serve the food after cooking.
  • This air fryer cooks just about anything you can imagine.  You are only limited by your imagination


How big is it?

35.8 x 31.8 x 31.6 cm

How much power does it have?

1400 watts of power

Why should I have this?

It’s relatively cheaper than the high end Philips dry fryer and T-fal air fryer models, yet it looks every bit as good, AND it comes with the larger more generous capacity.  What’s NOT to love about it?


Pro’s and Con’s of the Salter EK2205 Air Fryer

Our thoughts on the Salter EK2205 air fryer

One of our favourites.  The price point gives this air fryer a thumbs up, as does the extra large 4.5 litre capacity.  It does what it’s supposed to and looks every bit as good as other main branded oil free air fryers so you can enjoy family portions of delicious healthy food (and a wide variety at that!) at a lower cost.

After you’ve used it, it’s literally just the one pan to remove for cleaning which makes perfect sense when it’s your turn to do the dishes, or you can pop it in the dishwasher too, so it’s a win-win all round situation.

Size wise it’s just about right so can be left out all the time, and it’s good looks contribute to it’s likeability.

When 10 just aren’t enough, here are some additional air fryers that we wanted to give an honourable mention to.



VonShef Low Fat Digital Air Fryer

Enter the Vonshef air fryer 13/351 with a 3.5 litre capacity and 1300 watts of power


vonshef 13 351 air fryer digital display

So it’s a good looking unit and seems to do all the things you’d want and the price is pretty spectacular as well (half the cost of mainstream branded products).  It has an extra divider you can pop in to keep certain foods apart if you want.

Featuring a 60 minute timer and temperature options ranging from 150 to 200 degrees – perfect for most foods.  Features non slip feet and a cool touch handle.

‘Forbidden’ foods previously off the menu can make a welcome re-appearance; fries, fried chicken, burgers, steak, spring rolls, sausage rolls, cakes – the list goes on! Thanks to its superb versatility, the VonShef Air Fryer will come in handy for meals throughout the day, whether you’re frying, grilling, baking, roasting or just reheating. (source amazon)

Pro’s and Con’s of the Vonshef 13/262 healthy digital air fryer

Our thoughts on the Vonshef 13 351 air fryer

Overall an excellent machine and does what is intended.  We couldn’t find any real genuine issues.  Pop in the desired food, set the timer and wait for it to cook.  Nothing could be simpler.  Like most, it is recommended to shake once or twice throughout the cooking (especially when a lot is in, such as chips).

As an affordable good looking air fryer  it is hard to find any faults with this and you won’t go too far wrong if this becomes your next purchase.

Tasty Chicken Ideas For Your Air Fryer

Chicken is one of the mainstays of many a home in the Uk, and with the rise of the air fryer more and more people are wondering how best to marry the two for some wonderful meals.  Well never fear, using your air fryer for chicken snacks or meals is ever so simple.

air fryer for chicken

Sometimes you want to go all out and create something worth looking forward to, and other times you want to be able to just “shove some chicken in” and eat it as soon as possible.

Here then is a round up of some of the best chicken recipes we’ve come across.

I wanted to show recipes that could be done fast and others that took longer.  Trouble is most chicken if cooked from fresh will take at least 30 minutes so you need to factor this into your cooking schedule.

Crispy air fried chicken – 70 minutes total cook & prep time


This recipe looks utterly DELICIOUS!  It’s a case of mixing together some flour, egg, cajun seasoning etc.

Cooking time including prep: 70 minutes (10 minutes prep, then 30 minutes on one side, turn the chicken and cook for a further 30 minutes).

How to do this:

  • (Please refer to the above link for specific step by step instructions), but in a nutshell you will be mixing 1½ Tablespoons of Old Bay Seasoning, a cup flour, and 1 teaspoon seasoning salt.  Then whisking an egg separately in another bowl.
  • The next step is to drop a chicken piece into the flour, then into the egg then back into the flour.  Repeat for a few pieces of chicken and finally give them a spray all over with some spray oil.
  • Then you can pop them in the air fryer.  Looking at about an hour cooking, and you can turn them over after 30 minutes.

A definite one to try out.


KFC Chicken recipe for your air fryer – omg…! – 40 minute cook and prep time

If you can demolish a KFC time after time, it’s no wonder.  Their secret recipe for the Chicken coating is what has entertained people for many years.

Cooking time including prep: 40 minutes approximately

So I’m just going to let the video below do the talking.  If you’re a fan of KFC then give this a whirl!

In the video she outlines a list of all the ingredients that go into it – and they are all easy to find ingredients that are stocked at most supermarkets.

She cooked the KFC copycat chicken for 18 minutes however it did look a bit raw when finished, so I’d personally look to add an extra 10 minutes on, and see for yourself if you are happy.  As long as it’s steaming hot and White you can adjust to suit your own personal taste.  Some chicken might be bigger too, so this is one recipe that comes with an approximate cooking time depending on the size.


Chicken strips – 15-20 minutes total cook & prep time


FAST recipe, great for hungry kids!

Cooking time including prep: 15 to 20 minutes (5 minutes prep, then 3 minutes on one side, turn the chicken and cook for a further 3 minutes – an optional 2 extra minutes right at the end for reheating if you are cooking a large number of chicken strips).

How to do this:

(Please do refer to the link above for this excellent fast recipe).

The recipe simply involves preheating your air fryer as usual.  Then creating a breadcrumb based mixture you will use for coating the strips and finally cooking.

The mixture uses a “seasoning salt” (1 to 1/2 teaspoons), 1/2 cup of plain breadcrumbs and 1/4 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper.

  • You essentially mix the ingredients, turn your chicken strips in  the mix (aim to do 4 to 5 pieces at a time in the air fryer –  It’s best not to cook too many at once as you really don’t want each piece to be touching the next one, so that a good all round finish can be achieved when cooking).
  • Spray the wire tray in the air fryer with a spray oil and pop in the chicken, cooking for about 3 minutes each side.

Serve and enjoy!


Orange chicken –  minutes total cook & prep time

Not the fastest of meals but utterly delicious!

Cooking time including prep: 30 to 40 minutes

How to do this:

(Please do watch the video to the link above for this recipe).

  • The recipe essentially involves the mixing of flour, corn starch, salt and black pepper into a food bag and popping this to one side.  You will be using this to coat the chicken pieces in a moment.
  • Whisking an egg in a bowl, then popping in some cut up pieces of chicken in the bowl to coat them, before popping the chicken into the coating you mixed together previously in the bag.  Don’t forget to season the chicken at every stage with salt and black pepper.
  • Once the chicken is coated in the flour mix, pop it out of the bag onto a plate or tray and a quick spray of oil will help at this stage to give it a nice crispy coating.
  • Pop the chicken in the air fryer at 370 degrees for about 10 minutes… turn it over, another spray of oil then cook again for a further 12 to 15 minutes.

At this stage it should be nicely cooked.

For the Orange sauce you can get the ingredients list from her website at

Add the sauce ingredients as per the video and when it’s all thickened up , add in the chicken and serve!


Cooking frozen chicken  – 10 to 15 minutes defrost time, then 20 to 30 minutes cook time depending on size of chicken



Cooking time including prep: 30 to 45 minutes.

How to do this:

(Defrosting meat PROPERLY is really important, and needs to be done thoroughly.  If you are at all unsure then defrost the meat overnight in your fridge.

The main takeaway here is that you should check that the meat is soft right n the middle (after the defrosting part of your meal has been done).. If it feels firm and hard then it’s probably still frozen in the centre.

In the video above the guy is seen cooking the chicken on both sides for between 6 and 12 minutes per side.  That will give you some sort of idea on how long to cook each piece for.


If you’ve enjoyed these chicken air fryer ideas then you might feel compelled to go get an actual air fryer?  We’ve got you covered with our list of some great models.  Take a look.

Author: Shaun Baird


  • 1 Packet Pancake Mix Every packet is different so choose according to how many you'd like to make
  • 1 Serving Icing Sugar (or any other topping!) To gently sift over the top of the cookies once they have been cooked
  • 1 Each Egg For the pancake mix
  • 1 Unit Milk (if the mix requests this) For the pancake mix
  • 1 tsp Orange flavouring To mix into the pancake mix


  • The first step is to create your batter.  You can sometimes find pre-made batter mixes, or part-made batter mixes that contain only flour and milk.  If the mix is read to go then great!  If it says on the packet just add an egg and water then add in the water and 1 egg as mentioned on your batter mix packet.  This is usually the case in pancake mixes pre-made.
  • Open the pancake mix, pour it into a bowl.  Add 1 egg and water (as per pack instructions).  Then add in around a teaspon or two of Orange essence or flavouring.
  • Mix all the ingredients together until it is a gloopy mixture, using a whisk.
  • Pre-heat your air fryer to around 200 degrees.
  • Take an Oreo biscuit, and push a fork into the filling.  Dip the Oreo into the batter mix, then pop straight into the air fryer.  Alternatively you can do it with a spoon or your fingers!
  • If you are using Orange chunks as per this recipe, sprinkle some on top of the Oreos, then close the Air Fryer drawer and start cooking for 8 minutes.  If you are using icing sugar on top to dust the Oreo's, then sift the icing sugar over the top once the Oreos are cooked.

Watch the video for this recipe below:

So, first up, take out an hour to pop to your local Supermarket.

It’s a very inexpensive recipe costing under £5 for the ingredients.

You are going to need some sort of batter to dip the Oreo’s into.  There are a few options – firstly you can buy strips of dough already made.  These are a bit less messy and can simply be wrapped around each Oreo, but these tend to turn into pastry as opposed to a batter.

Here’s our ingredients (we also used an egg in our mix as well):

air fryer oreo cookie with orange twist ingredients

So first of all, we decided to use half a bag of pancake mix, and made the mix up according to half of each choice.

So we mixed in 75ml of water, 1 egg and 3 capfuls of Orange flavouring extract.


ingredients preparation for orange infused oreo cookies air fried


Once all the ingredients were mixed it was time to dip the Oreo’s.

I tried to push a fork into the soft bit of the Oreo at first, but it forced the Oreo to fall apart, so soon gave that idea up and just used my fingers.

At this point I had switched on the Air fryer for about 14 minutes.  It needs about 3 minutes of warm up time before any cooking should begin.

The Air fryer we use is a Duronic air fryer (I wrote a long review about it here if you want to know more about it, it’s actually our favourite air fryer at the minute!)

Once dipped, I placed the sticky gloopy Oreo’s into the Air fryer drawer, then sprinkled some of the Orange chunks on top.

I then closed the drawer and left it to cook which was around 8 or 9 minutes.

A metal spatula makes it easy to remove.

One thing I should note is that it may be better to cook them in the bottom of the drawer and not in the wire mesh inner tray as the batter ran through the mesh into the tray below, leaving the underside of each Oreo uncovered.

yum yum! A kids favourite!

Why bother with one of these all singing new fandangled Air Fryer thingies?

Well, when you are cooking the healthiest food possible , usually it means a compromised taste.. Agreed?  I know things have gotten better over the years but in general healthier stuff never quite tasted as good as “the stuff we loved”.

But, this does not mean you should end up depriving yourself of your favorite fried foods.

So (drum roll).. when I mention the very words “low-fat cooking”, we can now refer to food that is air fried instead of deep fat fried, and getting a very similar taste, and if you want to add a spot of oil, you can.

With this type of cooking, you can achieve similar tasting food without having to worry about consuming high levels of saturated fat.
