Haven’t taken the air-fryer plunge yet? No harm, no foul. But this is an intervention: You can’t miss this deal. And you can’t miss out any longer on the ease of life with this wildly popular countertop appliance. Air frying is every bit as magical as folks say. It lets you cook with very little—or no—oil. Allows you to make delicious things that would otherwise be a huge pain in the neck. And keeps your kitchen clean. With this compact, sleek model—and this epic deal from HSN—you can’t afford not to treat yourself.

Right now HSN has reduced the price of the Kitchen HQ fryer from $50 to just $40 (or three FlexPay payments of $13). That’s a steal. Plus, if you’re new to HSN you’ll get $20 off your first order with code HSN2020.

With its two-quart capacity—just right for couples and singles—the Kitchen HQ fryer is both an energy saver and a multi-talented workhorse. Sure it’ll turn out the crispiest, most delicious fries, mozzarella sticks, and chicken nuggets, but it’ll also prepare a complete, piping-hot dinner; toss your pork chops, steaks, salmon and veggies in for a quick, easy, all-in-one after-work meal.

Wait till you see it in action, in this HSN video—but be forewarned: This demo will set your stomach growling.

One thing we appreciate about the Kitchen HQ fryer is its simplicity. The machine operates pre-programmed 400 degrees to make perfect food every time. If you’ve had it with appliances that confront you with enough dials, switches, knobs, and readouts to fly a small plane, you’ll love this one-dial design. You simply set the timer (a display on top recommends cooking times for certain foods) and turn it on. That’s it.

Easy to use, and—and at 20 percent off—easy to buy. The five-star reviews are plentiful:

“I bought this for a friend and she said ‘I am in love with this’. It is an excellent item at a great price,” says one shopper.

“This thing makes everything taste great...So simple to use,” says another. “Quicker and better than the oven. Easy to use and clean up. Stays on countertop since it is not large and looks cute.”

“This air fryer is awesome,” says a third. “We use it several times per week. Food cooks perfectly. Easy cleanup.”

The Kitchen HQ comes in six great colors: black, red, silver, plum, cobalt, and teal. It’s a perfect gift for couples or singles, and a great addition to your own kitchen. At just 10 inches high, it tucks away nicely—though there’s a chance you’ll be using it so much, it never makes it into the cabinet.
