Best Prime Day air fryer deals
What is the best air fryer on the market?
Our favorite air fryers range in price from under $50 to nearly $400. The best air fryer for your needs will depend on how much space you have, your budget, and which special features are important to you.
If you’re looking for something that can do more than just air fry, consider the Instant Pot Duo Crisp Pressure Cooker with Air Fryer (8 Qt). In addition to air frying, it also allows you to pressure cook and sous vide. In fact, it performed so well at these tasks that we included it in our guides to the best sous vide machines and multicookers. It’s on sale now for $180.

Are air fryers worth it?
If you’re looking to replace your deep fryer with an air fryer, you’ll probably be disappointed with the results. Still, an air fryer is a versatile and efficient roasting appliance that may be worth having if there’s room on your counter. Sure, it can transform frozen foods into delicious, crispy treats, but you might also consider it for reheating your leftover pizza or even cooking a steak. If you can afford and have the space for an air fryer and these use cases sound appealing, we encourage you to take advantage of the Prime Day Early Access Sale.
Is air fryer food healthy?
As with anything you make in a kitchen appliance, there are healthy foods you can make and unhealthy foods. And, of course, this is all subject to your definition of “healthy.” But, if you make foods in the air fryer that you would normally make in a deep fryer, they will likely have much less fat and fewer calories since you won’t be cooking in a tub of oil. While the air fryer will give it exterior browning, your food won’t taste the same as it would coming out of a deep fryer.
