Looking at the vast range of Air Fryers for sale in UK, has anybody any views on how well these Air Fryers really work.
I am looking at a Tower model (TOWER T17005 AIR FRYER) as a starting point for mainly vegetables and meats. no baking planned as yet ?
Also keen to understand, which Air Fryers are made in UK, or at least manufactured/owned by a UK brand company which is why I was looking at the Tower range of products ?

So could not wait any longer and ended up purchasing the Tower T17021 Air Fryer from Argos for £54
A lot larger than I had anticipated and we opted for manual controls rather than digital, just to save a few pennies incase we disliked the way Air Fryers cook foods etc.
Must say, much like a small convection oven (fan assist) it has cooked sausages and parsnips well, so very surprised with how quickly the Tower T17021 Air Fryer cooks food and leaves the foods more moist on the inside.
The Tower Air Fryer itself seems well built. looks stylish and seems heavy duty, but as you can imagine, the build quality is not perfect and the feet slide easily across table surface (very small feet) and top gets hotter than I would expect, but for the price, a great start and designed in UK (made in China) so good news really.
As Tower say on there sales literature
“The Tower Range offers innovation, style, quality and outstanding value for money”
I ditto that, just need them (RKW Ltd) to start considering making more of there products in the UK

Deep frying is a regular cooking methodology used over the globe, I guess the best deep fryer is the one that uses less oil. yeah, you heard me right Oil-Less Deep Fryer or air fryer reduce fats, calories, and other conceivably unsafe substances and give solid and delectable dishes to you. The results are much better than oven frying, it works admirably cooking different meats and vegetables.September 7, 2020 at 5:07 pm #9570
I must say, I was a little skeptical when we purchased our Tower Air Fryer, but must say, cooks parsnips, chips and most meats very well, hash browns and potato waffles come out ever so very crispy (no added oil)
The only issue I have noticed in that very thin meats such as bacon, does tends to curl at the edges and look a little deformed, but adversely, does cook steaks very nicely, ideal for one of two people as a larger family or family meals the basket is a tad small

I have the Proscenic T21 air fryer, It is brilliant chips come out crispy. I do not use the Alexa function, but I do use the phone app, Nice big basket easy to use menu function Cooks evenly only downside is it has only 2.4G connectivity not 5G, but that is no biggie.
We hardly use the oven now, and it is the best kitchen gadget I have brought for a long time cooks everything evenly as the hot air is swirled around.
It may cost a bit more than other models, but this thing is highly recommended
