Air fryers continue to grow in popularity, with many choosing to invest in the efficient cooking method.
While the devices have existed for some time, the recent surge in sales could come down to the low running costs amidst an energy crisis.
Small and compact in comparison to conventional ovens, air fryers can give the same crispy, perfectly cooked finish in less time and with much less of an impact on household bills.
The Philips Airfryer 5000 Series XL has all the usual benefits, plus a unique feature that sets it apart from others – and it’s currently reduced to £79.99 on Amazon.

The deal from electrical giant Philips comes at a much more affordable cost than premium leading brand Ninja, but still has plenty to offer.
The air fryer is WIFI connected, meaning it links to an app that allows users to control the time and temperature from their phones, making multi-tasking and juggling household tasks that bit easier.
The app also features recipes to make with the device, and the 6.2-litre capacity is ideal for cooking for families of up to five people.
With over 900 reviews, many Amazon shoppers agree that the quality, value and performance of the air fryer are good.
Thomas said: ” Recently got an air fryer, and it’s been a total game-changer! The sleek design and easy-to-use interface make cooking a breeze. Crispy and delicious results without drowning in oil? Yes, please! The presets are super handy, and it cooks everything evenly and fast. If you’re thinking about upgrading your kitchen and enjoying healthier, tastier meals, an air fryer is the way to go!”
Arthur commented: ”This is the first air fryer I’ve owned and I love it. It’s got loads of room inside. Probably enough space to feed a family. So far made chips, sausages, bacon and chicken in breadcrumbs. Everything has come out great. It’s simple to use with either the buttons on the device to select temperature and time or via the app. I like the app as it has recipes. Also shows you little videos on what to do and the timings for this device. I’m no chef but this is great. It’s giving me options to make a much wider variety of foods. Still got a lot of new things to try.”
Nurlan also added: ”Very good appliance, it would be nice if they added a divider and a steak grill to keep the steaks in correct shape.”
For those investing in an air fryer for the first time and looking for a more straightforward, simple-to-operate machine, it could be worth considering this Daewoo 4L Single Pot Air Fryer, which comes in at less than £40.
