How to choose an air fryer during Black Friday
As you’ll find when you start shopping for Black Friday kitchen deals, there are many manufacturers, brands, and models on the market, and many of them look alike. When considering the best air fryers, our editors considered the same factors you should think about on your own search. If all you want from an air fryer is the ability to cook up crispy wings and fries, you won’t be swayed by the multifunctional models that can do much more than just air fry but command much higher prices. As with all such purchase plans, how you’ll use it, and how much you want to spend, are the primary concerns.
You can find good deals on basic air fryers from several brands. If you’re choosing a single-purpose model, the major decision points are the frying basket capacity — typically 3 to 5 quarts — and whether the controls are manual or digital. Our editors found some of the best air fryers under $100 from Dash, GoWise, NuWave Brio, and Farberware. If your budget isn’t as constrained or you want to combine several cooking appliances with an air fryer, our editors found the Ninja Foodi Digital Air Fry Oven to be a great multifunctional air fryer that cooks very evenly and stores easily to conserve counter space. If you’re wondering how to clean an air fryer, we have you covered with a helpful guide, as well as a list of the best air fryer cookbooks for making tasty, healthy meals.
When to shop Black Friday air fryer deals
When you’ve made up a shortlist of your preferred air fryer models, you can start now watching the Black Friday air fryer deals. This year we’ll see millions of additional online shoppers, not just because people stay away from public places but also because the number of online shoppers was already growing fast before the pandemic struck. Many people who enjoyed competitive shopping in retail stores are switching to competing for the best Black Friday air fryer deals online. Massive numbers of online shoppers mean retailers will be challenged to keep inventories full and keep their fulfillment channels working. What that means to you is if you see an air fryer you want at a great price, don’t hesitate because supplies of the most favored models will sell quickly, and you could face not being able to buy the one you want or waiting a long time to have one delivered.
One of the bright lights around retailers offering Black Friday air fryer deals early this year is that most major online merchants have also introduced Black Friday price protection programs through which they guarantee that if you buy a designated Black Friday product on sale, they’ll refund any difference if they lower the price before or on Black Friday. The details differ among retailers, but the overall message is you can buy now to be sure you’ll get the air fryer you want with timely delivery and not have to be concerned about missing out on future price cuts during the Black Friday extended sales event.
