We are huge fans of the Black + Decker range of kitchen products here at Kitchen Authority.
We find that they’re very well made and deliver a lot of bang for thebuck, so we were very excited when we got our hands on the Black + Decker Purify 2 Liter Air Fryer.
This is what we learned.
Why An Air Fryer?
Firstly, it’s probably best to concede that an “air fryer” doesn’t do any frying at all. What it does is use a convection current (rather like the one in an oven) to achieve a similar result to frying without the need to use any oil.
So, the reason that most people want an air fryer is that it allows them to make “fried” food but without the calorific content of the oil. This is a big deal given that oil can make up 20% or more of the calories in fried food.

Why The Black + Decker Purify 2 Liter Air Fryer?
The 2 liter capacity of this air fryer puts it in the mid-range of air fryers. You can certainly feed a family with it but you won’t find yourself with any leftovers. Really big families may want to opt for a larger capacity than the Black + Decker.
Typically you could cook 10 chicken nuggets or 8 chicken wings at one time. You can also tackle up to half a pound of fries or even 4 fish fillets in a single use.
However, the Black + Decker Purify 2 Liter Air Fryer is wonderfully easy to use and we found the controls to be very simple to get to grips with.
The biggest selling point is under the lid, though. It’s the twin convection currents that this air fryer employs to get the job done. It leads to “extra crisp” food and we found that it tasted much more like fried food than food from other manufacturer’s models.
Cleaning and Care of Your Black + Decker Purify Air Fryer
We’ve yet to meet an air fryer that wasn’t shockingly easy to clean and the Black + Decker was no exception. You’re not going to spend more than 2-3 minutes at the most getting it back to “factory condition” after use.
You can even throw the frying basket in the dishwasher if you want to.
Our only real gripe with the Black + Decker Purify 2 Liter Air Fryer is that the plastic handle which is joined to the inner basket isn’t particularly robust.
We’ve heard that in long-term use it can crack though Black + Decker appears to be aware of the problem and will treat it as a warranty issue.
The Final Word
Despite a minor drawback with a handle, we thought this Black + Decker Air Fryer was a really good addition to your home appliance line up, particularly if you’re trying to watch your weight.
Air fried food isn’t quite fried food but this is as close as it gets.
