Ninja foodi max 9-in-1 multi-cooker, OP500UK, 7.5l: Was £229, now £179, Currys.co.uk
Ninja is one of the brands that has merged its Boxing Day and January sales into one big blob, with an early January deal already available to shop. With £50 off the foodi max 9-in-1 multi-cooker, it’s as good as time as any to do yourself a solid and make life in the kitchen a whole lot easier.
Besides serving up crispy, air fried goods, this device can also slow cook, steam, bake, roast, sauté, grill and more. It’s 7.5l capacity makes it large enough to feed up to six people, and it can fit an entire 3kg roast chicken. When putting this device head to head with the Instant pot crisp, our reviewer said they got great results and they “loved the fact that air fryer lid was attached to the base of the machine”, meaning they could save on storage space.
Lakeland dual basket air fryer: Was £159.99, now £139.99, Lakeland.co.uk
While this model didn’t feature in our round-up of the best air fryers, a similar model from Lakeland did. This is a dual basket version of the compact air fryer we featured, with a capacious 9l volume split across its 5.5l and 3.5l baskets. We particularly like these dual-basket fryers at IndyBest primarily because you can cook two things at once, on different settings and with variable timings. But mainly we favour them above single drawer gadgets because we relish any opportunity to eat chips with our meal. With £20 off at Lakeland right now, it’s time to invest if you haven’t already.
Philips essential XL connected HD9280/91 air fryer: Was £199, now £149, Ao.com
Boasting a decent price cut of £50, this sleek model from Philips could save you 60 per cent on energy when compared to using an oven. Said to rustle up dinner in 40 per cent of the time (again, this is compared to how long it would take on average in an oven) it can cook up to 1.2kg of food using rapid air technology. While other standout features include a grill function and cool wall feature to ensure that the fryer never becomes hot to the touch during use.
Reduced to half price, this Salter air fryer will set you back just £49.99. Helping you rustle up healthier meals with little to no oil, the air fryer boasts a generous 3.2l cooking capacity and an adjustable temperature control up to 200C. Cook everything from meat, vegetables and homemade chips to spring rolls and much more using the handy adjustable timer control and power-ready indicator light.
Tefal actifry genius XL AH960840 air fryer: Was £249, now £149, Currys.co.uk
This one secured a spot in our round-up of the best air fryers, and according to the brand, it’s large enough to cook up to eight portions at a time. Our tester was seriously impressed with the machine’s integrated central paddle that does all the stirring automatically, saying “this made for some of the best chips we cooked in all our tests and we’d buy this pricey model for those alone.” With pre-set functions for chips, rolls, breaded snacks, meat and vegetable balls, battered snacks, chicken and desserts, cooking up a feast has never been easier.
Tower T17039 xpress pro vortex 5-in-1 air fryer oven: Was £119, now £99, Very.co.uk
A similar model from the brand made it into our round-up of the best air fryers, so it’s safe to say Tower knows what it’s doing. The digital control panel let’s you adjust between temperature setting and the machine’s 60-minute timer can help you plan your cooking time perfectly. The xpress pro vortex comes with an oil tray, rotisserie fork, handle and three air flow racks that can cater to a whole range of recipes.
This appliance from Ninja was praised by our tester for not only it’s air frying ability, but also its grill function that can cook everything from salmon to sausages. It’s especially good at turning out the perfect steak, thanks to a built-in probe that determines the right time to cook the meat, whether you want it rare or well done.” And though it looks more like a mini pizza oven, our writer said, “the air-fryer function is excellent too, particularly at cooking frozen food to perfection.” With six different settings, this multi-functional air fryer might just end up replacing your oven entirely…
When will the tech Boxing Day sales begin in 2022?
Boxing Day officially started on 26 December. But, as with Black Friday, some retailers started launching deals a little earlier, and naturally, we’ll be tracking those too.
When will the tech Boxing Day sales end?
While you’d think this is a one-day event, Boxing Day deals usually run until January, at which point they miraculously become January sales. Some retailers have opted to blend these various sales into one big end-of-the-year sale event.
With plenty of misleading deals going around and a record number of sale events in 2022 (think Amazon Prime Day, Prime Day Two, Black Friday, Christmas sales, Boxing Day and January sales), the IndyBest team is working around the clock to filter out the fake discounts and only bring you the best.
