If your feed has been flooded with friends and food bloggers recreating their favorite deep-fried dishes into healthier, air-fried alternatives, you're not alone. Air fryers have gone from a quirky cooking gadget to a kitchen essential for enjoying favorites like fried chicken and French fries without the extra grease or guilt.
Air fryers work by rapidly circulating hot air around food to cook and crisp with 75 percent less oil and fat than traditional frying methods. It's a healthier way to enjoy fried foods with less mess, time and cleanup.
Air fryers aren't cheap, though — they'll typically set you back between $50 to $100 depending on the size and style you get. Well, have we got a treat for you.
The Insignia 5-qt. Analog Air Fryer normally retails for $100, but it's on sale for just $40 at Best Buy right now. The powerhouse has a 4.7-star rating and over 1,500 reviewers raving about how easy it is to use and how tasty the food comes out.
An all-in-one appliance, the Insignia Air Fryer lets you fry, roast or bake your favorite foods at temperatures from 180 to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Air fry anything from chicken to veggies! We've seen air fryer recipes for everything, from Buffalo cauliflower nuggets to apple pie.
The large 5-quart basket can hold 3 to 5 servings of food, so it's perfect for families or entertaining friends. An automatic shutoff timer means you never have to stress about burning your food or forgetting to power it down. It has a sleek stainless steel finish with an easy-to-navigate dial display, and the basket and pan are dishwasher-safe, so less dirty dishes to worry about. If you've ever deep-fried something in oil you know how messy your counter and walls can get.
One reviewer shared that it worked better than pricier air fryers: "I have owned this air fryer for a week and I cannot believe how well it works. The quality is great. I made fried chicken in this thing and it actually came out better than some of the really expensive air fryers! Look at that!"
Another reviewer added that it's an easy way for kids to experiment in the kitchen. "This air fryer is easy to use," says the fan. "Nice and simple so that I can teach my kids how to use it for little items. Great size. I have a family of five and it gets the job done. So far I have cooked things like bacon, broccoli, steak, chicken, salmon, potatoes, zucchini fries, and reheated pizza, fries, and more! I would recommend it!"
Just like a fresh plate of fries, this deal won't last long! Add this Insignia 5-qt. Analog Air Fryer to your cart for $40 at Best Buy before it's gone!
