Hi, I'm Clare

Welcome to Air Fryer UK! I started my food blog in 2020 when I was gifted an Air Fryer. It inspired me to create and share simple energy-saving recipes using my Air Fryer and Slow Cooker! Once I got started and realised the versatility of these two simple appliances there was no stopping me, I’ve gone on to create 100’s of recipes and love to share them. As seen on Channel 5 TV. More about me..

If you have been looking for a way to get more out of those kitchen gadgets that have been hiding away in the back of the cupboard, or if like me you have been gifted an air fryer or slow cooker and you aren’t too sure what to do with them then you have landed in the right place. I absolutely adore creating fresh new recipes and being able to show you how you can make amazing food in your air fryer and slow cooker. Both of these incredible kitchen gadgets have been under played and have a lot more to offer than it may first seem.

Why invest in an air fryer or slow cooker?
There are so many kitchen gadgets on the market today that it’s hard to decide which ones to invest in. My favourites, by far, for saving both time and money are the slow cooker and air fryer. Honestly, both are super easy and super fun to use, and they really do compliment each other in the kitchen.
There is nothing worse than spending your hard-earned money and realising that what you have bought doesn’t actually do what you wanted, and it spends more time collecting dust in the cupboard than it does helping you to create delicious mouth-watering meals for you and your family.
Both the air fryer and the slow cooker allow you to cook delicious family friendly meals, they can both help to reduce the cost of cooking and I guarantee that you can do more in them both than you currently think you can. Your air fryer is not just for chips and the slow cooker can do a lot more than a bolognaise or chilli.

Why the Air Fryer?
Do you ever look at a recipe and think that it sounds great but will just take far too long and you don’t have the time for it? Well in steps the air fryer, there are many foods that the air fryer can cook much faster, and healthier, than some of the more traditional cooking methods. If that’s not enough to get you investing and experimenting, then how about the fact that they are super easy to care for and clean. Still not enough? How about teaching your whole family to use it, including the kids, so that you can cook together or they can whip up a treat for you. I knew that would get your attention.
Air fryers are super easy to use, easy to clean and easy for the whole family to use – what’s not to love about that.
Over the past few years, I have been tinkering and experimenting and creating all sorts of incredible recipes and I’ve brought them all together for you not just here on my website but also in my cooks books where I show case my absolute favourite recipes.
The Ultimate Air Fryer Cookbook was released in November 2023 and is packed with 80 incredible must try recipes. I had such a blast putting this together for you and I knew there was more to create so in November 2024 I will be releasing The Ultimate Air Fryer Cookbook: One Basket Meals – and I know you will love the simplicity of the meals that I have chosen to showcase in it.

Why the Slow Cooker?
I always thought the slow cooker was just a ‘throw it all in’ and leave it for the day gadget, and whilst it is still great for that, and I really do love a recipe that you can set up and leave to cook whilst you get on with other things, it is also so much more than that. Did you know you can cook desert in your slow cooker? Or how about a whole cooked chicken? Or a delicious soup? That innocuous gadget that has been neglected in the corner needs to be pulled out and utilised to its full potential.
The slow cooker is an energy efficient way to cook delicious meals and with my recipes to help guide you, you simply can’t go wrong. Start right here with the recipes on my site or go ahead and purchase your copy of The Ultimate Slow Cooker Cookbook. But don’t stop there, go ahead and do you own experimenting.
