Tower, like all air fryer brands, is enjoying an additional boost in sales thanks to consumers looking to cut their energy bills, and their range keeps on growing as a result. Which, if you are desperate to buy an air fryer, is very good news indeed. These ones are part of their 'Vortx' brand – not to be confused with Instant Brands' Vortex brand. Hope that's clear.
Air fryers initially grew in popularity as they were seen as a healthier option for cooking food and there's now plenty of choice. Air fryers don't actually fry, but use a fan and element setup to heat food through and give it lots of crispiness along the way. However, they're also known for their efficiency, which is leading lots of folks to ditch the oven and cook meals using an air fryer instead.
Tower uses its own Vortx fan technology inside these models, and the two range topping models also feature a Vizion viewing window.
Tower is also known as a value for money brand, with models to suit all kinds of budget. The latest additions to the range hit all the right notes, and are definitely not 'budget air fryers'. They're good value for money, but they're substantial beasts and definitely not cheapo shit. Here's the deal details on these three new Tower dual zone air fryers…
Tower Vortx Air Fryers
Vortx Eco Dual Drawer Air Fryer T17099, £199 at Tower
Tower’s brand new Vortx Eco Dual Drawer Air Fryer is ideal if you're looking to minimise cooking times, especially if you've got a family. It features two separate baskets, holding 5.2 litres and 3.3 litres respectively. That lets you cook multiple food types at once, from crispy chips through to juicy steaks without any of the faff. Four cooking options include roast, grill, bake and fry.
Vortx Vizion 9L Dual Basket Air Fryer T17100
Was £249 now £219 at Tower
The quick and easy Vortx Vizion 9L Dual Basket Air Fryer has been designed with efficiency in mind. There are built-in viewing windows for keeping tabs on progress and removing any need to open the drawers, thereby losing heat. Viewing lights show off food more clearly too, so you'll be able to get dinner just right. Meanwhile, 10 cooking pre-sets including fish, sausages and chips offers versatility, as does a bake option. And somehow, despite being brand new, the price is already down to just £219 – £30 cheaper than its Ninja rival.
Vizion Express Dual Compartment 11L air fryer T17102 £299 at Tower
The last and LARGEST air fryer is the Vizion Express Dual Compartment 11L air fryer. This comes with two individual 5.5 litre drawers, with a generous capacity for each meaning you have more flexibility at meal times. There's a built-in sync cook function, so different food types can be ready together even if they have different cooking times. You also get a recipe book, just in case you grow tired of fries!
