Tower Vortx 12 Litre 5-in-1 Digital Air Fryer Oven


By now we’ve all heard the amazing benefits of using an air fryer both for the taste and the energy efficiency, but Tower again has stepped up the game and introduced the 12-litre 5-in-1 Digital Air Fryer oven which has the capacity to feed the whole family and uses Vortx technology to significantly reduce cooking time. With the festive period slowly creeping up, many of us will be turning to our air fryers to help with feeding the family, and Tower’s air fryers are the perfect choice for making this massive task so much easier.

Straight out of the box, the Vortix 12-litre 5-in-1 Digital Air Fryer Oven by Tower is much larger than the smaller drawer air fryers you might be familiar with. It comes with 16 pre-set options perfect for a range of meats, as well as a variety of functions from air frying to baking or roasting. However, a big draw of this model is that it includes a rotisserie fork and handle so you can pop a whole chicken inside. According to Tower, you can cook a whole rotisserie chicken in as little as an hour, and it will be ready with a perfectly crispy skin. I was amazed when I put this to the test, as the chicken was indeed perfectly cooked, and the skin was divine even with using very little oil. Thankfully, the technology behind the air fryer means that oil is almost completely unnecessary and so is also a healthier option for cooking.

Having tested out the air fryer for a few weeks now I’m thoroughly impressed by the quality of speed with which it cooks food. The aero crisper basket is great for getting that all-round crisp, and the rotating skewers function allows you to make little meat and vegetable skewers which were cooked perfectly in such a short amount of time. I was particularly interested in the bake mode, something I don’t think many people would have expected to see on an Air fryer model. I whipped up a quick cake batter and popped it into the air fryer. I was amazed that on the bake setting it produced a perfectly risen and still moist cake. This is a game changer for the festive season as often we’re juggling between getting savoury snacks and meals ready in the oven, so you can easily pop something sweet in the air fryer and it will quickly and successfully bake your delicious, sweet treats ready for a big family gathering. A key factor in this is the temperature control of the air fryer, which has an accurate range from 80-200° and a 90-minute timer.

One of the main draws of Tower’s air fryers is that they provide quick and efficient cooking which saves up to 70% on your energy bill when compared to a regular oven. This is all thanks to the Vortx technology that Tower uses to rapidly circulate hot air around the food, which cooks it 30% faster than conventional ovens and so subsequently reduces cooking time and energy usage. In addition, the range of functions and easy-to-use LED screen makes using the air fryer such an easy, efficient, and cost-effective choice – especially when coordinating lots of different dishes ready for a big family gathering. It was also super easy to clean between uses, as many of the shelves, baskets and rotisserie forks can be simply removed and washed up by hand.

Having used the air fryer for the last few weeks I know I’m going to be relying heavily on this in December, and know that with Tower’s great technology behind it, it will serve my family well. If you are thinking about getting yourself or a loved one an air fryer then the Tower Vortx 12 Litre 5-in1 Digital Air Fryer Oven is a great choice. Not only will it produce great food with little to no oil, but you’ll also be saving your loved one or yourself some money on your electricity bill which is an extra gift in itself!
