Jamie's Air Fryer Meals sees the TV chef delve into the world of air fryer cooking, in somewhat of a departure from his usual traditional cooking methods. 

The best air fryers have a myriad of uses, from the primary air frying function to roasting, baking and even dehydrating food. Jamie's Air Fryer Meals offers the chef's insights into how to get the most out of this popular appliance, as well as flavour-boosting hacks, useful air fryer accessories and tips on cooking delicious family meals in very little time at all. 

There's no denying how much air fryer fever has swept the nation over the past few years. Thanks to the air fryer boom, there are a plethora of models to choose from, which can make picking the right one confusing and time-consuming if you don't know exactly what you're looking for. 

Jamie's air fryer of choice is a good place to start, with the TV chef championing one of the best on the market to demonstrate how to cook frozen fish, a roast chicken curry dinner and a (rather ambitious but very impressive) baked Alaska dessert, among other dishes in the first instalment of the Channel 4 show.

Jamie Oliver opted for the Tefal Easy Fry Dual Zone Air Fryer and Grill, which is currently reduced by £30 on Amazon, to cook his meals in the first instalment of the Channel 4 show, showcasing both the stainless steel and black models. It's a popular choice from leading appliance supplier Tefal as their biggest capacity dual air fryer - though it is worth mentioning that the brand sponsors the series, so that will undoubtedly influence Jamie's model choice.

Having said that, our home appliance expert Helen McCue rated the 8.3-litre capacity air fryer 4.5 stars in our Tefal Easy Fry Dual Zone Air Fryer review

Helen knows a thing or two about choosing the right air fryer, with a degree in Home Economics and years of experience testing out the best home appliances for the Good Housekeeping Institute. She said of this particular model, "The quirky uneven drawer design of the Tefal Easy Fry Dual Air Fryer makes it uniquely helpful for cooking family-sized meals," before adding the caveat, "However, we found its grill element to be a little lacking."
