How much does it cost to run an air fryer?

Don't get carried about with how cheap the purchase price is – remember, it also costs to run one.

Keep in mind the cost is different for everyone, as what you pay for electricity will depend on your tariff and also how large and efficient your appliance is.

Similar to any appliance, a newer model is likely to be more efficient, and be cheaper to run than an older version.

The power of an air fryer is measured in watts, and this determines how much energy it uses – and the cost of using it.

But the more powerful the appliance, the quicker it will cook your food too.

A 1,000W air fryer costs just 17p to run for 30 minutes and 34p to run for an hour.

While a 1,500W air fryer will set you back 26p for half an hour, and 51p for an hour's use.
