Can an air fryer save on electricity costs?

Have yourself a frugal little Christmas! One in five families will use an air fryer to prepare their celebratory dinner and save on costs

  • Air fryers use less than half the energy than a traditional oven
  • A fifth of Britons are expected to opt for trendy air fryers over regular ovens
  • It is believed that stove owners will soon see a reduction in their electricity bills

Christmas is usually a time of overindulgence, but this year some are eschewing the usual extravagance in favor of more economical and relaxed celebrations.

A fifth of us are expected to opt for trendy air fryers instead of ovens to prepare Christmas dinner in a bid to cut energy bills as the cost-of-living crisis deepens.

Air fryers use less than half the energy that an oven uses, so they can reduce gas and electricity bills over time.

Those cooking for Christmas will be relieved to know that the appliances can roast green vegetables, potatoes and poultry – including turkey.

However, air fryers with a capacity of less than 5.7 liters may not be large enough to cook a whole bird.

The countertop machine can also be used as a healthier option, as air fryers use significantly less oil.

A poll for John Lewis found that many of us are also planning to dress smartly this year, with just 9 percent donning our festive “merry rags.” Instead of sequins, velvet, evening wear and high heels, this year almost half of us – 45 percent – will be seen in relaxed clothing like pajamas or jeans on the day.

Meanwhile, skyrocketing prices are forcing millions to forego lavish details and luxurious gifts. Four in 10 of the cuts admitted buying cheaper gifts for friends, while one in five spends less on an office “Secret Santa”. And many started their holiday shopping earlier than ever this year to help spread the cost.

The study found that charitable donations, gifts for pets and treats for Santa are among the expenses most likely to be eliminated.

However, gifts for children were the top priority, closely followed by alcoholic beverages. With the average Christmas meal costing a third more than it will in 2021, according to Good Housekeeping, many plan to make further savings by cooking more from scratch.

Stuffing, gravy, and mince pies are some of the most popular ingredients to make at home.
