1. Best Appliance Deal: Philips Essential XL Air Fryer 

Pros

  • Spacious air fryer
  • Choose from seven pre-sets
  • Multi-functional appliance
  • Reliable, consistent cooking

Cons

  • Clunky basket design

Make iftars healthier this Ramadan, with an air fryer that completely cuts out oil from your cooking. Philips Essential XL Airfryer is a family-friendly appliance with a 1.2kg capacity basket that’s spacious enough to accommodate up to five meal portions in one go. You can use it to not just air fry, but also grill, bake, roast and reheat food. Use its seven pre-sets for quick, one-touch cooking. It’ll do the job with its Rapid Air Technology and unique ‘starfish’ design at the bottom of the basket, which swirls the hot air around to create crisp, evenly cooked food with little to no oil. While some reviewers found the basket design to be on the heavier, clunkier side, they appreciate that all removable parts are dishwasher-safe. Pick up this Ramadan essential for healthier, air-fried meals that are still incredibly delicious.

Bonus: Buy with 0% installments and pay Dh 50.80 for 12 months with select banks.

Warranty: The manufacturer provides 1-year warranty.

2. Best Phone Deal: Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G Dual Sim Android Smartphone, Phantom Black (UAE Version) 

Pros

  • Faster built-in S Pen
  • Excellent display
  • Cameras have great low light performance
  • Sleek design
  • Fast charging

Cons

  • Shorter battery life than Galaxy S21 Ultra
  • Not the latest model

While Samsung launched its latest Galaxy S23 range of smartphones earlier this year, the older Galaxy S22 is still a top contender, and available at a great discount during the Ramadan Sale. This version has a responsive S Pen that’s 70 per cent faster than its predecessor, with less latency. One of its other big upgrades is its camera system – the phone includes a large main sensor for better low-light pictures, an AI-enhanced portrait mode, and a new Super Clear lens that brings every detail to life. Reviewers love its AMOLED display panel, which is bright and even performs well outdoors in full daylight. While the battery life could be better – it lasts a little over 10 hours, which is average by most standards, the phone does come with 45W fast charging capabilities. Get this beautiful phone on discount for yourself or as a gift – the price just couldn’t be better!

3. Best Router Deal: Amazon Eero Pro 6 Tri-Band Mesh Wi-Fi 6 Router 

Pros

  • Easy set-up
  • Excellent bandwidth
  • App features easy user interface
  • Built-in Zigbee smart home hub
  • Includes guest networking
  • Works with Alexa

Cons

  • Subscription required to unlock parental controls
  • Lacks USB ports

Tired of dead spots around your home? Turn the situation around this Ramadan, by snagging 35 per cent off on the Amazon Eero Pro 6. As the company’s first mesh Wi-Fi system that utilises the latest Wi-Fi 6 technology, each unit can provide up to 2,000 square feet of seamless wireless coverage. It has a built-in Zigbee smart home hub that allows you to control all your smart devices, from lights to thermostats to security cameras. Reviewers appreciate that the device supports Alexa voice commands, making it very easy to turn on features like guest networking – a handy tool that lets you create a separate Wi-Fi network for visiting family and friends. However, if you’re looking to access more features, like enabling ad blocking, creating individual user profiles or managing parental controls, you’ll have to pay for subscription. Still, this device is a great combination of a tri-band mesh system and home automation hub – and it’s extremely easy to set up and manage. Also, check out the Eero 6

4. Best Headphones Deal: Steelseries Arctis 9 

Pros

  • Comfortable for hours of use
  • Great sound
  • Retractable mic
  • Multi-platform compatibility
  • Bluetooth capability

Cons

  • Average battery life

If you’ve been waiting for a price drop on a top-rated gaming headset, now is the time to pick up the Steelseries Arctis 9 – it’s a whopping 54 per cent off! This versatile headset works with major consoles – PlayStation 5 (and 4), Nintendo Switch, and PC – and since it’s Bluetooth compatible, you can also use it with your phone or laptop. Gamers in the reviews say the headset is comfortable to wear for hours with no issues; they’re light, sturdy and easy to use, as well. The mic is built into the left headphone and retracts when you don’t need it, and even though the on-ear control area seems a little busy, there’s enough spacing between the buttons and dials to keep you from getting confused. The sound quality is excellent. On PCs, the headset supports DTS:X 2 surround sound (as long as your game also supports it), and both action sounds and orchestral scores come through clearly. It’s a great headset to get on a discount, so don’t wait to pick it up! Check out other gaming headsets.

Bonus: Buy with 0% installments and pay Dh49 for 12 months with select banks.

You can easily install the shower hose in minutes, or ask a technician to do it for you. Grab this deal while it’s discounted!

Bonus: Book an in-home demo and installation by a brand trained technician for Dh44.10.
