Air fryers are seen as a healthy alternative to cooking, as most food popped in there does not require oil, bringing out the flavour more.

They are also viewed as a cheaper alternative to ovens as they use relatively small amounts of electricity instead of gas, which has seen prices skyrocket during the cost of living crisis.

Aside from their cost, they are easy to use, and clean.
