Lakeland Touchscreen Healthy Air Fryer 2.6L £79.99 Lakeland (Shop Now)

Get ready for guilt-free fry days! The Lakeland Touchscreen Air Fryer cooks with little or no oil so you can enjoy lighter versions of all your favourite foods without sacrificing the flavour.

There’s nothing quite as tempting as a portion of crisp, golden home-made chips, but all the oil used in traditional chip fryers might have meant they were previously off the menu… Say hello then to our clever Touchscreen Air Fryer that allows you to have your chips and eat them! Using just one teaspoon of oil to cook up to 500g of chips, it circulates hot air from all directions to cook food evenly for much lighter, perfectly ‘fried’ chips, meat, fish, poultry and seafood that’s easier on the waistline.
