The popularity of air fryers has soared in recent months and it's not hard to see why. The energy efficient air kitchen appliance is an economical way to save money amid soaring energy bills, and on average can cost as little as 17p per day to run, according to energy company Utilita.

Not only is this much cheaper than an electric cooker, which costs around 87p a day to run, air fryers also use less oil, so you can enjoy dinners that are much healthier but still delicious.

Dual basket air fryers are particularly sought-after, thanks to having two compartments which can cook an entire meal in one go, whether that's fish and chips, a roast dinner or salmon and potatoes – perfect for serving homemade dishes for the whole family.

They don't come cheap however, and many can cost upwards of £150. However, we've spotted Lakeland's own brand Dual Basket Air Fryer - 9L is finally back in stock after selling out, and is currently on sale for £139.99.

An unmissable deal, it also has rave reviews from happy customers and is cheaper than many of its competitors, including Ninja, Tower and Salter.

Why we rate it

This spacious countertop device boasts a nine-litre capacity, one basket is 5.5l, the other is 3.5l. Both have separate timers too.

There's an easy-to-navigate touchscreen display which will allow you to adjust the time and temperature of your cooking and can heat up to 200 degrees celsius.

Did we mention there's eight pre-set programmes, designed to perfect roast potatoes, steak, chicken wings and seafood, along with sweet treats such as egg tarts, cakes, bread and scones.

Its cooking pots are non-stick too and easy to clean, in fact, they're dishwasher safe, saving you the laborious task of washing up after dinner.

What the reviews say

On Lakeland's website there's almost 40 reviews, with an average 4.5-star rating. If you needed more convincing, here's what some had to say:

  • "Have only had this for a few weeks but have used a lot. Cooks food really well, nice and easy to clean. Hardly used oven at all."

  • "OMG this has changed our lives, easy to use and fantastic results every time, haven't had a failure yet. One of the good things is the different size baskets. We have only used our main oven a couple of times since making our purchase. Highly recommended."

  • "I am really pleased with this, you can cook so many things and it is quick economical and easy to clean. Would recommend it."

  • "Since receiving this airfryer, I haven’t used my oven. Roast my Sunday joints, roast potatoes, in fact anything that I cooked in the oven I now cook in the air-fryer. It is a wonderful product."
