The Bella 2-quart air fryer surrounded by plates of food.

I've taken to using my air fryer in place of the microwave on nearly every occasion other than a quick zap of something liquid. For reheating last night's leftover chicken or fish, it's air fryer all the way. It's also great for making food from scratch, of course, including crispy french fries, wings, dumplings, veggie sticks and more. 

Right now, this well-rated Bella 2-quart digital air fryer just dropped down to $20 at Best Buy. That's $30 off the normal price and probably less than most people spend on a single night of ordering in. 

If you've been a little air-fry-curious, this is definitely the time to pounce. You won't find an air fryer model for cheaper than this, even on Amazon Prime Day.

What's so great about an air fryer, you ask? The big draw is that it can make extremely moist-on-the-inside and crispy-on-the-outside chicken and other meats, as well as snack-type foods like french fries, tater tots, cauliflower bites, "fried" veggies and jalapeño poppers without any -- or very little -- oil. This compact 2-quart model won't crowd your counter space and comes with handy preset functions like fry, roast, bake and reheat. The Bella Pro Series scores a solid 4.4 out of 5 stars in over 1,200 buyer reviews, too.

Air fryers: So hot right now
