Many retailers have been in a rush to offer cheap air fryers over Black Friday and Cyber Monday - but I'm here with a word of caution. While they may tempt you with huge discounts or rock-bottom prices, you will almost definitely be better off avoiding them in favour of tried and trusted brands that will deliver better cooking results and last longer.

One you should check out is this Corosi Air Fryer at Amazon for £50.99 when you apply the 40% off voucher on the store page. 

This is our pick for the best budget option in our best air fryer guide as it's slick, easy to use and produces great quality food once you get the settings spot on. With a 4.7L capacity, it's an ideal size if you want a compact air fryer to make meals for up to four people while also saving energy and using minimal oil.

If you do want a larger dual basket option then the Ninja Foodi AF300UK 7.6L Dual Zone Air Fryer is down to £139 at Argos

There's a considerable jump in price here but this is the cheapest we've seen this model in two years and since the big air fryer boom. It also gets you an air fryer we gave the full five stars in our Ninja Foodi AF300UK review for its rich suite of functions, impressive results with multiple foods, and the handy ability to sync cooking times.

Those are the two options from brands we've tested that stand out today if you're looking for any last-minute Black Friday deals that are still available today.
