Thanks to Prime Day 2019, you can finally get started on that healthy summer diet. Forget deep-fried 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 somewhat pricey, the Dash-brand model is on sale for $52 in the robins egg blue color.

DASH Compact Electric Air Fryer + Oven Cooker

At $52, this versatile air fryer is a steal (plus, did we mention we love the cheery blue color?). The appliance boasts almost 850 Amazon reviews. Available in four fun colors — go neutral with black or white, or add a pop of color with aqua or red options — it'll complement any kitchen, and the silver details add a sleek touch.

It works quickly, too — in fact, it'll be done with some recipes in less time than it takes to preheat the oven. The auto shut-off option means it won't overcook, and the dishwasher-safe parts make for an easy clean-up.

This air fryer is usually used for ... well ... frying. But fryers are great for roasting and grilling too, especially with its seven preset options for cooking fries/chips, meat, shrimp, cake, chicken, steak and fish.

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.
