Are air fryers really worth it?

Air fryers have surged in popularity since energy bills soared as they can be cheaper to use than a conventional oven.

That said, that's not always the case, and it does depend on the model of air fryer.

In fact, money-saving expert Martin Lewis recently issued a warning that it's not always cheaper to use the gadgets.

If you are weighing up whether to buy an air fryer, you can use a simple formula to figure out how much it costs.

Cost = power (in kWh) × time (in hours) × price of 1 kilowatt on your energy tariff.

So, if for example, you have an air fryer that consumes 2,000 watts, you are using it for one hour and the cost of electricity is priced at 34p per 1,000 watts, the formula would be:

2 x 1 x 34p = 68p

The 7.6 Tower Vortx dual basket model on sale at B&M has 2,400 watt power.

So the formula to work out how much that costs to use for an hour is:

2.4 x 1 x 34p = 81.6p

You can use the same formula with any appliance, so you can do this with your oven and work out the difference in price.

For example, a normal oven uses between 900 and 3,500 watts of power.
