EarlyFryer offerings are getting so hot. Speaking of hot, these modern easy ovens make crunchy sandwiches that taste like fried, but the not-so-dirty secret is that you don’t have to fry. They use super hot, fast-circulating air to reproduce the effects of deep frying, but without the unwanted calories and fat. This is only one man’s opinion, but I often find the food that comes out of my deep fryer even more delicious as it is not loaded with as much fat. I use my air fryer almost every day for everything from chicken wings and French fries to grilled salmon and crispy vegetable sticks.
When choosing a deep fryer, you have a big decision to make – certain models are made for air frying and are generally a bit cheaper, but you’re limited in what you can do. Then there are the larger hybrid countertop convection ovens with air fry function. With this version, you can bake, broil, reheat, thaw and reheat in addition to air frying. They preheat faster than most large ovens and cook faster, too. Both types are great and it really comes down to wanting you to plan on cooking, how much counter space you can give up, and how much you want to spend.
The good news is, you won’t have to spend a lot, especially if you get one of these deep fryer deals. Basic single function air fryers start at around $ 25. Hybrid ovens range from $ 150 to $ 300, but with these Prime Day deals, you can get one for over $ 100. We’re tracking down the best deep fryer deals Air Prime Day (see below) and will continue to update as new sales emerge until the big sale, Monday June 21-22, so check back often.
I own this oven and the Crux has been as reliable a kitchen companion as any for the last 15 months stuck at home. It has slowly but surely replaced my large oven in daily use.
I use it to grill fish, make chicken wings, French fries (air fried, of course), frozen meatballs and dim sum, reheating pizza leftovers, and more mundane tasks like toasting bread and bagels. It preheats blazingly fast, and the air fry feature cooks things faster and crisper than you think. Seriously, don’t walk away once it’s on or you’ll go back to a cajun crust.
This is the cheapest you will find some fryer and if you’re not completely sold on the idea but have a little curiosity about air frying, this is a low risk way to dip your toe in water. Do you prefer a digital interface? See the next offer.
