Black Friday Air Fryer Deals: Save Money, Eat Chips

What do you want for Black Friday? If you look deep into your soul, you’ll find the answer is probably chips. It’s nothing to be ashamed of, we all love chips, but you may be concerned that your desire for chips is not the healthiest impulse to indulge. Let’s get two things straight: don’t deny yourself a pleasure because it might not be healthy, and, chips are not unhealthy – no single food is. Eating too much fat, especially of the unsaturated kind isn’t a great idea though, which can be easy to do if you enjoy chips as much as we do. Air fryers are a neat solution to this conundrum as they use a tiny amount of oil to fry food compared with deep-fat fryers. 

It turns out these kitchen gadgets can also do more than just fry, so you don’t have to take up countertop space for a one-trick pony. If you want to take things up a notch you can also find air fryer tech in multicookers from brands like Instant Pot.

For these reasons and more, air fryers have become a popular item this Black Friday. The “more” reasons? It’s a product category that is seeing discounts in the true spirit of Black Friday – we’re talking 40% and up from major brands, so now is the time to invest. Here we’ve picked three that got us thinking about where we could make space on our kitchen counter.

Breville Halo Air Fryer – Save 50%, Now £54.99

With a 5.5-litre basket this little beauty can cook a whole bird in double-quick time, which is always a useful string to add to your bow as the season of Christmas dinner disasters approaches. As well as roasting, there’s air frying (of course), including a preset for chips, plus baking, sautéing and grilling. The basket is also dishwasher safe, so the washing up is a doddle.

Philips Essential Air Fryer – Save 48%, Now £119.99

Go larger with the 7-litre capacity of this air fryer, which will more than satisfy four hungry mouths. Anything which can be removed from the fryer can be chucked into the dishwasher, but our favourite part about this model is that it doesn’t require any preheating.

Instant Pot Duo Crisp – Save 44%, Now £99.99

You’ll spend a little more on this deal, but you are adding an entire Instant Pot multicooker into the bargain as well. It also has a slightly larger capacity than the Breville as well as a multi-level basket so you can cook your chicken and chips separately for better results.
