As the weather gets cooler and wetter, thoughts of food increasingly turn to warm comfort foods, and what can be more comforting than a bowl of fries with salt, malt vinegar, ketchup and – yes! – mayonnaise?
The trouble is, a big bowl of deep-fried potatoes isn't especially healthy. That's where air fryers come in, enabling you to fry using a fraction of the fat that you'd use in a traditional deep fat fryer, so you can enjoy those chips guilt-free.
According to Philips, the Philips Air Fryer uses 80% less fat than a traditional deep fat fryer, and you can also use it to grill, bake and even roast dishes, so you can save money when compared to using the oven.
The Air Fryer has an integrated timer so you can pre-set cooking times, the removable nonstick drawer and food basket are dishwasher safe, and the compact design means it won't take up too much counter space.

3 toppings you really need to try on your French fries
If you've ever been to a Dutch snack bar, you'll know that they know how to top off a portion of fries to turn them into little cartons of joy. Here are three Nederlandse snackbar toppings you must try. Eet smakelijk!
1. Patatje flip: fries with satay sauce and mayonnaise on top.
2. Patat speciaal: fries with ketchup and mayonnaise and a sprinkling of finely chopped raw onions on top.
3. Patatje oorlog: Oorlog translates as 'war' and that's basically what happens here as your fries are drenched in satay sauce, mayonnaise and topped off with chopped raw onion. Some regions add curry sauce, too. A decadent delight.
