Yes, everyone is air frying but you.
The air fryer is becoming a staple of the 21st-century kitchen, thanks to its ability to make crispy foods like Buffalo wings, onion rings, and even kale chips with little to no cooking oil. As a bonus, unlike a stovetop fryer or full-size oven, the air fryer won't heat up your whole kitchen—and your meal will be done in next to no time at all.
Thanks to the Amazon Prime Early Access Sale coming up on October 11 and 12, there are not one, but two days’ worth of opportunities to save more on the best air fryers.

We’ll update this list with the latest Amazon Prime Early Access Sale deals on air fryers, but in the meantime, here are the best air fryer deals that were on sale during Prime Day 2021 and 2022.
Dash Deluxe Electric Air Fryer
The Dash Deluxe offers a striking look—available in five colors to match any kitchen—along with a 6-quart capacity to easily “fry” meals for the whole family. It also features an auto-shutoff feature along with an insulated handle and outer housing that ensures the machine stays cool to the touch, even when it’s at maximum temperature.
When we tested the Dash Deluxe’s miniature cousin, the Dash Compact Air Fryer, our reviewer loved its design and safety features but found it underdelivered on power and had a slightly too-small capacity. Well, the Deluxe solves both those problems, cranking up the power from 1,000 to 1,700 watts, and tripling the size of the basket.
Instant Pot Duo Crisp + Air Fryer 6-Quart Multi-Use Air Fryer
This multifunctional machine combines two trendy appliances: It comes with a standard pressure-cooker lid that lets you make Instant Pot recipes from soups and stews to cornbread and beans, as well as a special tall lid that turns the machine into an air fryer, too.
Our reviewer gave the Instant Pot Duo Crisp a perfect score, praising its ease of use and array of functional accessories. You wouldn’t expect a machine that can do this many different things to be good at all of them, but this one is.
Instant Pot Duo Crisp + Air Fryer 8-Quart Multi-Use Air Fryer
This version of the Instant Pot Duo Crisp is essentially the same as the one above, but a third larger. It works just as beautifully as its 6-quart cousin, but it is a bit more expensive. If you’ve got a large family or find yourself whipping up snacks for a tailgate crowd frequently, it might be the one for you.
Instant Pot Pro Crisp & Air Fryer 8-Quart Multi-Use Air Fryer
As the name suggests, the Instant Pot Pro is a step up from the Duo, in both functionality and price. Its quality-of-life upgrades make the machine more convenient to use and add a few more cooking options. It can be set to a wider range of temperatures—from 70 to 450 degrees Fahrenheit versus 105 to 400 for the Duo—making it more effective for both slow-cooking and quick-frying. Plus, its more advanced digital interface is simpler to use and even includes a progress bar. The inner pot has its own handles for easy removal, and there’s a switch that releases pressurized steam more gently.
Instant Pot Duo Crisp 6.5-Quart With Ultimate Lid Multi-Cooker and Air Fryer
Where other Instant Pot models need two separate lids for pressure cooking and air frying, this one’s “Ultimate Lid” can do both, saving storage space and aggravation. Its digital controls offer the latest in Instant Pot technology, with detailed onscreen instructions, a whisper-quiet steam release, and even a display that says “OK to open lid” when cooking is done.
Instant Vortex Plus 10-Quart 7-in-1 Digital Air Fryer Oven
From the makers of the Instant Pot, this air fryer/oven doesn’t have pressure-cooking capabilities, but it sure is great at frying up crispy foods. The machine also comes with a rotisserie basket and spit for countertop roasting. In her Instant Vortex Plus review, our tester found the capacity a little lacking—it could barely hold a small chicken—but was extremely impressed with its performance as both air fryer and rotisserie.
Cosori Pro Smart 5.8-Quart Air Fryer
Ever wanted to fry something with your cell phone? This WiFi-enabled air fryer lets you control the machine using Cosori’s VeSync app, which ensures you’ll never forget about a timer going off and also includes detailed step-by-step directions for hundreds of recipes. (You can even voice-control the fryer with Alexa or Google Assistant.) A fully dishwasher-safe cooking basket makes cleanup a snap, too.
Cosori Pro Max XL Air Fryer
This model is essentially the same as the Cosori Pro Smart above, just without WiFi. Its simple on-machine controls are still easy to use, and it has some clever features, including a reminder to shake smaller items like French fries for more even cooking. It comes with a booklet including more than 100 recipes, along with access to hundreds more in the brand’s app.
Instant Omni Pro Air Fryer Toaster Oven Combo
The kitchen wizards behind the Instant Pot are experts at combining all sorts of cooking appliances, and this one adds the ability to air fry to a huge-capacity toaster oven. Many air fryers work well, but suffer from a basket that can’t cook very much food at once. The Instant Omni Pro holds 18 quarts, enough to cook a whole chicken, 12-inch pizza, or six slices of bread. Its smart controls connect to the built-in temperature probe to shut off the heat at just the right time, and you can even program two cooking modes to run in sequence, for example, baking a dish of mac and cheese and then finishing it with a few minutes of high-temperature broiling.
