There' no denying that when it comes to fast, easy and cheap cooking, air fryers are the G.O.A.T.

They make oven chips taste gourmet, crisp up vegetables delightfully and make cooking everything from chicken to jacket potatoes an absolute doddle.

Since their meteoric rise to fame on TikTok in 2020, the versatile kitchen gadget has been praised for its energy efficiency, which as life continues to get more expensive has been music to our fried-food-loving ears.

So, imagine our happiness when we discovered that home appliance experts at Hometree have revealed which air fryer is actually the cheapest to run at home.

Data compiled revealed that the the Tower T17026 took first place when it comes to energy efficient cooking.

The Tower T17026 costs just 4p on your energy bill if you leave it running for a whole hour! Now that's what we like to hear.

The winning air fryer already comes with accolades from Amazon shoppers, over 6,000 of whom have contributed to its 4.4 star rating out of 5 on the shopping site. AND it's under £50 - bargains all round!

The report from Hometree also revealed the cheapest slow cooker to run at home, with the winning gadget being the Tower 1.5 Litre Slow Cooker, which costs just 32p over the course of 8 hours. No wonder slow cooker recipes are having such a boom right now.
