If you've been waiting for the perfect time to splurge on an air fryer, you can find this 4.7-star-rated model from Ultrean for 38 percent off right now.

This Ultrean air fryer has a 4.2-quart capacity, making it suitable for about two servings of food. It's also pretty simple to use—there are buttons to adjust time and temperature, and that's about all there is in terms of features. While that might be a positive for someone looking for a basic unit without a whole lot of fuss, serious home cooks might want to look for an air fryer model that comes packed with a few more options.

In addition to the simplified controls, this unit's backlit LCD screen shows precise temperatures, ranging from 180°F to 400°F, so you'll have complete control over how hot it gets. The unit also has a nonstick pan, heat-resistant handle, and a detachable dishwasher-safe basket, making it easy to take apart and clean once you're done. Each shipment comes with a recipe book, too, so you'll get easy tips for making meals straight away. 

Many people often cite an air fryer's ability to “fry” foods with less oil and grease as the key selling point. In actuality, an air fryer is just an efficient and compact convection oven; it's not technically frying anything. It uses hot air circulation to evenly heat food, meaning you can do much more than “air fry” your meals. The appliance can also be used for baking doughnuts, making grilled cheese, and whipping up hard-boiled eggs.

You can find the Ultrean air fryer on Amazon now for just $60.
