Air fryers were a lockdown sensation, both with people who wanted to eat chips with fewer calories and foodies interested in trying new flavour combinations and cooking techniques. The result was a boom not unlike the one for Instant Pots a few years ago. Not surprisingly, the best Cyber Monday deals already include price cuts on numerous air fryers including some of the very best air fryers.
• Shop all Amazon air fryer deals – there are plenty, believe me.
The ones I've picked out here start with the Instant Pot Duo Crisp + Air Fryer, which is an Instant Pot that is also an air fryer. So with that one you're getting two of the most popular cooking products of the last five years in a single device. A single device, with two lids, in fact.
Already got an Instant Pot? Try the Philips Essential XL Air Fryer. This loses the pressure/slow cook element to focus fully on good, old-fashioned air frying, like mama used to make.
If both of the above are a bit rich for your tastes there are also two large air fryers at rock bottom prices, from Breville: the Halo Air Fryer and perhaps best of all, the Halo Rotisserie Air Fryer, which is also a rotisserie, obviously. So you can skewer and spit roast to your heart's content, like a 21st century Henry VIII.
Remember: these offers must end soon. Don't wait for the best Cyber Monday deals; strike while the iron is hot.
