Remember it’ll cost extra to have it delivered. You’ll be charged £4.95 for standard delivery, but it could be more depending on how soon you want it for.
However, if you’re planning to buy it in person, we recommend calling up your local branch first to check it’s in stock.

How much does it cost to run an air fryer?
Remember, even if the price is low, you should always know how much an appliance costs to run.
These prices are on average, you should note – it’ll depend on the model you own, how much energy you use and who your provider is.
As with any appliance, a newer model is likely to be more efficient, and be cheaper to run than an older version.
The power of an air fryer is measured in watts, and this determines how much energy it uses – and the cost of using it.
For a 1000W air fryer, it’ll cost just 17p to run for 30 minutes and 34p to run for an hour.
While a 1,500W air fryer will set you back 26p for half an hour, and 51p for an hour’s use.
A 1,800W gadget costs around 31p for 30 minutes, and 61p for 60 minutes.
An air fryer may be a cheaper alternative to the oven, for example, but you shouldn’t always assume this will be the case.
A 2kW oven costs around 34p to run for half an hour, or 38p for an hour’s use.
You could run a 1,000W air fryer for an hour for 4p less.
You can also look for other cooking alternative to make sure you’re saving as much as possible – for example slow cookers or microwaves may help.
