The fryer is available both online and in store but make sure to factor in delivery costs when ordering.

To find your nearest Argos branch, you'll need to visit the website.

The handy kitchen gadget includes an oil drip tray, rotisserie fork and handle, and three mesh air flow racks.

It also uses 2kW of energy to run.

Air fryers have really gained popularity over the past year as running one for 15 minutes generally costs 13p.

This means that with energy bills heavily on everyone's minds, shoppers have been rushing to buy them.

They generally cost less than an oven to run and you can also get them with multiple shelves or drawers so that you can cook for the whole family.

Most meals can be cooked in an air fryer as many, like the Argos one, have multiple functions such as grilling, roasting and baking.

The Tower fryer would cost 45p to cook a whole chicken based on the 40 minutes cook-time advertised, according to USwitch experts.

This is compared to the 91p that it generally costs to cook a whole chicken in a standard 2kW oven.

That means that it costs 46p less to cook a whole chicken in the air fryer and less time too.

You can find lots of different sized air fryers for different prices from various brands and retailers.

The price usually depends on the functions of the fryer and the size.

We found that Amazon is selling the same Tower air fryer for £1 less than Argos at £109.

Studio is also selling the same make and model for £109-£110.

There are similar models from different brands can cost less such as the Daewoo 12L air fryer from Robert Dyas which is £99.99.

As always before you commit to a purchase, you should shop around to make sure you're getting the best deal.
