This is the cheapest compact air fryer around this Black Friday. It's incredibly quick and can cook at high temperatures. It lacks a little precision and finesse — if that bothers you, the Instant Vortex Slim is another compact option.

Beautiful 6 Quart Touchscreen Air Fryer| Was $90, now $69 at Walmart
This is the cheapest air fryer worth buying this Black Friday. Don't let 'cheap' put you off, because, as the name suggests, this is beautiful. It's far, far better than a celebrity-endorsed air fryer should be. Sure, it's a little flimsy, but Drew Barrymore's air fryer made fries, bagels, and dehydrated apples better than any competitors under $100. It's also available in a wide range of colors.

Paris Rhône Air Fryer | Was $109.99, now $75.99 at Walmart
If you're looking for a non-toxic air fryer and don't need lots of fancy features, you'll like this. It has 5.3 quarts of capacity (just enough for one small chicken) and a neat viewing window. Some of the presets are a little bizarre, but it's a good basic model.

Instant Pot Duo Crisp with Ultimate Lid | Was $229.99, now $149.95 at Amazon

Instant Pot Duo Crisp with Ultimate Lid | Was $229.99, now $149.95 at Amazon
One of our favorite air fryer deals isn't even an air fryer. This is an upgrade on the original Instant Pot Duo Crisp, which one of our testers used to own. The original used two different lids for all the functions, which was surprisingly difficult to store. Instead, this does it all in one pot. Our expert tester made a perfect macaroni cheese all in one pot, cooking a sauce, pressure cooking pasta, and broiling the crispy top all in one dish, with minimal washing up.

There are bigger savings on air fryer and countertop ovens, but if you want one which combines both, this is your best option. It can toast, dehydrate, proof, bagel, boast, bake, broil, warm, and, of course, air fry.

Should I buy an air fryer on Cyber Week?

Yes. If you've still held out on buying an air fryer, Cyber Week is the last chance to buy one at these prices.

What's the best air fryer deal?

The Ninja Max XL, because it's our favorite compact air fryer of all time and you can own one for $79.99. It's faultless, so would suit most households. There are more compact options, but you'll compromise on performance.

How we test

Our experts have tested every single one of these air fryers. They've also tested plenty of air fryers that didn't make the list, simply because they weren't up to standard. 

We have a series of standard tests that an air fryer needs to excel at before we recommend them to you. We air fry vegetables, nuggets, fish sticks, a whole chicken, and, of course, fries. We'll measure speed, taste, and texture, because, that's what really matters to most people. Our experts will also let you know what it's like to use, unbox and clean, so you don't have any unwelcome surprises when using yours at home.
