Our heads are practically spinning over all of the great kitchen deals Black Friday has to offer this year. From the multi-cookers that are 20 percent off at Target to the KitchenAid stand mixers that are 30 percent off at Kohl's, it seems like every appliance we've ever made eyes at (we're looking at you, fancy slow cooker!) is up for grabs at a heavily discounted price. Walmart has one deal in particular, however, that just might trump them all: the 6-Quart Instant Vortex 4-in-1 air fryer ($49.95, Originally $99, Walmart).
Take it from us: This genius device from the same genius innovators behind the Instant Pot, which is currently a whopping 50 percent off, is no ordinary air fryer. Equipped with eight simple touch controls, this machine does far more than simply add a delicious crunch to your favorite foods. Sure, it can crisp up to a 2-pound bag of fries or a 4-pound chicken with ease, but the Vortex can also roast, bake, and reheat food, making it a multi-purpose machine that you'll get plenty of use out of.
Better still, it can help you keep off winter weight, since it utilizes an impress 95 percent less oil than a traditional deep fryer. In short? This handy device will give you the crispy food texture you crave at a fraction of the guilt.
There's an included cooking tray and air frying basket, and the Vortex also comes equipped with a 30-day manufacturer's money-back guarantee and a 90-day warranty from Walmart.
If buyers' opinions are any indicator, this air fryer is another win for the Instant brand. One happy shopper raved, "This air fryer blew my other one out the water!! It not only cooked faster, but the food tasted better as well. I love that there are more options than just air frying, like roast, bake, and reheat. I use my air fryer to reheat everything now, because it comes out so much better than using the microwave. It’s digital, so there’s no more guessing where the correct time and temperature are. I absolutely love this machine and definitely recommend this if you’re shopping for one!"
Another went on to write, "This air fryer was picked after relentless researching websites, reviews, and asking people. If you want fast, healthier meals, this Instant Vortex 6-quart air fryer is exactly what you're looking for."
At its current price tag of less than $50, we didn't need all that much convincing: We're officially sold!
Where to buy: $49.95 (Originally $99), Walmart
