This popular Philips air fryer is down to $80 in an Invite-only Deal for Prime Members

What is it?

Who says you need to cook your favorite fried foods in oil to get that crispy texture you love? Air fryers use much less oil than traditional frying. They circulate super hot air to create that crispy, crunchy outcome we all adore, but using just a few tablespoons of oil. Have you decided to get smart and join the air-fryer revolution? Here's your chance: Ahead of Prime Day, Amazon is offering up the popular Philips Essential Digital Air Fryer for just $80 (down from $180) in an Invite-only Deal for Prime Members.

This four-liter air fryer has room to whip up four portions at once. Be sure to click on the "Request invite" button to get the deal.

What reviewers say

If you're looking for ways to make getting dinner on the table without friction, shoppers rave about this air fryer.

"This is a great air fryer for two," raved a satisfied shopper. "I can fit most of our food that I want to air fry for a meal in one air fry session. It's really easy to clean and does a great job with fish, fries, shrimp, chicken, vegetables and more. It doesn't take up a lot of room on the counter either. I use it almost every day."

"It is great for cooking hamburgers quickly with almost no preparation, draining the grease as it cooks," shared a five-star fan. "Easy to make rare or medium rare because it cooks the surface faster than the interior. Heats up leftovers in 3 or 4 minutes like French fries and makes them crispy again. Easy to clean. I love it."

"It was my first air fryer and I liked that it was small but at the end of the day it turned out to be a bit limiting in terms of how much food you can cook in it," wrote a five-star fan. "I highly recommend this, just pay attention to the size before you order."

Still on the fence? One reviewer who calls it their new best friend, says "I genuinely did not know I could love an appliance the way I love this air fryer. I have basically been using it every day, and it has changed my life for the better. I am super lazy and strive to never make meals that take more than 15 minutes to cook. With my new Philips air fryer, I can cook basically anything in under that timeframe and it will come out deliciously. This has been a game changer."

It's also great for reheating leftovers and take out! Be sure to click on the "Request invite" button to get the deal.
