We've found 3 Ninja air fryer alternatives – and they're all on sale

If you've been looking for a Ninja air fryer, or any air fryer for that matter, then you're probably finding the search rather tricky to keep up with, since these countertop appliances are proving more popular than ever.

With this year's Black Friday deals now event in full swing, it's hardly surprising that our Black Friday air fryer deals are (also) proving popular with readers. Air fryers have really hit the headlines in 2022 with realistic promises that they can half the cooking time of foods, and therefore save you a chunk of money on your energy bills (not forgetting to mention that they're a healthy way to roast, dehydrate, bake and so much more).

The air fryer that consistently comes out on top as one of the best air fryers is the Ninja Air Fryer Dual Basket, but with stock frequently coming and going on the Ninja website and with resellers, we need a back up. Below, we've found some alternative options, both in the US and UK, which are all currently in stock and discounted.

Hurry, though, because we can't guarantee how long even these air fryers will hang around for.

Where can you still buy a Ninja air fryer?

We're keeping a very, very close eye on where you can still buy a Ninja Air Fryer Twin Drawer, and have seen that Amazon UK has its exclusive Black / Copper colorway available to order now. There's a note on the listing to say that it'll be dispatched in one to two months, so you might get it in time before Christmas.

Ninja air fryers have been one of the most popular countertop appliances to find and to have in 2022. We've been tracking their popularity and seen them come in stock and go back out again in front of our very eyes.

Having reviewed a number of Ninja air fryers, we've been consistently impressed by their ability to cook foods in half the time, saving money on energy and therefore answering the question that's on all of our minds: are air fryers worth it? They look super smart, have a good build quality and are easy to keep clean, with many parts being safe to put in the dishwasher, too.

As with the Ninja Foodi Max Dual Zone Air Fryer AF400UK, we found that the Twin Drawer was useful for cooking two food types at the same time during our review. The Max Crisp feature was also ideal for cooking various frozen foods, and the number of features in general was just as impressive, since the Ninja air fryers can do more than just air fryer; they can also bake, roast, rehydrate and more. Even the smaller Ninja Air Fryer Max [AF160UK] / Ninja Air Fryer Max XL can do more than just air fry, and it comes with the Max Crisp feature.

Consistent reliability is what you get with the Ninja air fryer, although they do come at an expense, so hopefully these equally fab alternatives will help to save you yet more money.

Uber Eats exits seven markets, transfers one as part of competitive retooling

Uber Eats is pulling out of a clutch of markets — shuttering its on-demand food offering in the Czech Republic, Egypt, Honduras, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Uruguay and Ukraine. It’s also transferring its Uber Eats business operations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to Careem, its wholly owned ride-hailing subsidiary that’s mostly focused on the Middle East. “Consumers and restaurants using the Uber Eats app in the UAE will be transitioned to the Careem platform in the coming weeks, after which the Uber Eats app will no longer be available,” it writes in a regulatory filing detailing the operational shifts. “These decisions were made as part of the Company’s ongoing strategy to be in first or second position in all Eats markets by leaning into investment in some countries while exiting others,” the filing adds. An Uber spokesman said the changes are not related to the coronavirus pandemic but rather related to an ongoing “strategy of record” for the company to hold a first or s
