Thanks to Black Friday, you can start your New Year's resolution now.

Long gone are the days of unhealthy, deep-fried guilty pleasure snacks. With an air fryer, you can still get all of the french-fried goodness with much less of the guilt.

Although these fryers are normally pricey, the super popular Philips air fryer is on sale for $99. It's 60 percent off the normal retail price for today's early Black Friday deals on Amazon, which means the deal ends at midnight.

Usually, these trendy kitchen appliances cost at least $150. At $99, the Philips air fryer is a steal. The appliance boasts more than 400 Amazon reviews and a 4.3-star rating.

We tried out the bigger version — The Philips XXL air fryer — and it worked like a charm.

This air fryer is usually used for ... well ... frying. But it's great for roasting and grilling too, especially with its seven preset options for cooking fries/chips, meat, shrimp, cake, chicken, steak and fish. The best part is, once you're done, you can just pop the removable pieces into the dishwasher.

How does an air fryer work?

Air fryers use convection fans to circulate heat around food to cook it quickly and uniformly. This gives food a crunchy texture similar to foods submerged in a deep fryer, but without the added oils and fats.

And, if you're not satisfied, FrenchMay promises a free return with all your money back up to 60 days after purchase.

Snag it before the deal ends!
