This air fryer uses a fan and heating element to cook whatever you put in it using only a tiny amount of fat, yet gives a flavour and texture similar to frying. Who could resist? For one day earlier this year, you could find this miracle of food science for £130 but other than that, it's the lowest price on this air fryer ever.

A Philips air fryer sits proudly atop our list of the very best air fryers. Not this one, admittedly but this one is a very close relative to the Philips Air Fryer XXL. Like that behemoth, the Philips Essential Air Fryer Extra Large HD9261/90 is easy to use, easy on the eye and good for your cardiovascular system thanks to its low-fat cooking ways. Via Philips' own app you can gain access to 300+ meals that can easily be put together and cooked in the air fryer. Or you can experiment with your own recipes, of course. Anything that you could fry, roast or bake can be done in an air fryer.

The 1.2kg capacity is enough for up to 5 portions of food – depending on how greedy/hungry your family and friends are. The digital temperature control goes as high as 200°C, with rapid air technology meaning few meals cooked in the Essential Extra Large take longer than half an hour. Crucially, this air fryer is also easy to clean, with key parts such as the main food container being dishwasher safe. That's a relief, I can tell you.

Amazon billed this as a Deal of the Day initially. That means, in theory, it should have ended on Tuesday but it’s still going strong. It must end some time soon though. 

T3's guides to the Black Friday sales and deals

Duncan has been writing about tech for almost 15 years and fitness ever since he became middle aged and realised he could no longer rely solely on his boyish good looks. He used to be on telly loads, but an unfortunate incident put a stop to that, so he now largely contents himself with telling people, "I used to be on the TV, you know."
Pre-lockdown Duncan was widely regarded as the best-dressed man ever to work for T3 – admittedly not saying much. Post-lockdown he is looking forward to wearing clothes other than shorts and hoodies again very soon, assuming he can still fit into them. He currently writes about cycling, fitness tech that isn’t too heavy, and all things kitchen and home related.
