This free report will show you five established and reliable fryers, performing as owners expect. These unbiased recommendations are based solely on combined owner reviews from different shops.

Our ratings-driven look at the wider market often highlights unexpected models for sale. It can also steer you away from a 'bestseller' - if ratings are inconsistent at the different shops.


How does it work?

We begin by building a list of fryers with more than 50 ratings at Amazon UK, Argos and, John Lewis . This jumps straight to the established products, and this minimum number of ratings reveals how they've actually performed, according to many owners.

Any fryers with less than 4 stars are removed. We now have a list of the higher rated models, with a credible amount of opinion.

We use the same criteria for all our consumer reports: each product must have over 50 reviews and more than 4 stars. After sorting the list by ratings, we compile a Top 5.
