5 Best Air Fryer Black Friday Deals to Shop Right Now
If you’ve been on the fence about whether or not to go all in on air fryer Cyber Monday deals, I get it—it’s a cost and counter space commitment. But this appliance is a lot of fun, and I’m fully a convert; read more about the detailed ins-and-outs of air frying here. I made extra crispy brussels sprouts in mine last week in 11 minutes flat. Still unsure? If you’re hesitant to pay full price on a kitchen appliance you’ve never tried before, these Cyber Monday sales (see our full list of Cyber Monday cookware and kitchen deals here) are the perfect excuse to go for it. C’mon, live a little! If you’re just cooking for one or two, I’d recommend a basket-style air fryer like the Cosori or CRUXGG because they take up less space than a toaster oven-style fryer while still getting the job done. But if you need one that can do multiple racks of food, dehydrate apple slices, toast bread, and serve as an extra oven for holiday pie marathoning, go with the Breville Smart Oven Air Fryer Pro, which a few food stylists I know swear by as secondary ovens. That thing can do it all. Now, onto the best air fryer Cyber Monday deals! —Alex Beggs, senior staff writer
This is an all-in-one air fryer–toaster oven combo, so if you’re looking to upgrade your existing toaster oven, this is an excellent choice. The Breville Smart Oven Air Fryer Pro can tackle a batch of crispy chicken tenders, cook a frozen pizza, and even roast a 14-pound turkey should your full-sized oven crap out on you. Its Super Convection setting reduces cooking time by 30%, and its 13 preset functions can do everything from bake to reheat to dehydrate. This is certainly an investment appliance rather than an impulse buy, but right now, it’s $100 off.

Our favorite basket-style unit is the Cosori Air Fryer Max, and it’s what associate food editor Rachel Gurjar uses to develop all her air fryer recipes. It has a 5.8-quart capacity—larger than many other basket-style air fryers—but it doesn’t take up too much counter space. The super straight-forward touchscreen makes this air fryer incredibly easy to use. It even has a “shake” reminder alarm to ensure all of your potato wedges, chili-honey glazed fries, and brussels sprouts come out super crispy.
BA editorial director Amanda Shapiro loves her CRUXGG air fryer, and with good reason. It’s got a 6-quart capacity and the ability to fry, bake, sauté, steam, grill, and roast in addition to air frying. Plus, it comes in two different matte colors: snow white and smoke grey. Get it for 20% off at Target along with the rest of the CRUXGG line.

Our friends at Epicurious tested a bunch of air fryers to find the best one on the market. Their favorite was the Philips Premium Digital Air Fryer—not only because it made the crispiest, most evenly-cooked French fries, but also because of its attractive, very easy-to-use interface.
