Air fryers

One of the best ways to eat fried food – but healthily, air fryers can cook anything from chips to nuggets to pizza rolls! All without have to douse your food in oil and fry away every last nutrient. So why not grab your flatmates and invest in an air fryer, with so many on offer this Black Friday. You can get the Instant 3.8L Air Fryer at Argos for only £45 (was £60), or head to Aldi for the Tegal Actifry Advance, able to serve up to six portions and now only £99.99 (was £149).
