In case you haven’t already heard, air fryers are the bee’s knees. They take your favorite, not-so-healthy foods—like French fries, fried chicken, and doughnuts —much better for you by cutting way down on the grease (seriously, we have air-fryer versions of all of them). The machines use, you guessed it, hot air to circulate and cook whatever you want in a fraction of the time.

The only bad part? Air fryer baskets can be really, really small. So unless you only want to cook four chicken nuggets (not ideal for a hangry family), it’s better to opt for a larger model. But bigger air fryers can cost a lot more—sometimes over $500—which is a major investment for a kitchen gadget.

Leave it to Williams-Sonoma to bless us all with the deal of the century: air fryers for under $250. As for that $500 model I was talking about earlier? It’s slashed to $379, just in case you’re interested in splurging a little.
