Best Buy

Admit it. You've spent $40 on takeout just for yourself before, haven't you? I know I have. Right now, Best Buy has an Insignia 5-liter air fryer -- perfect for healthy versions of restaurant-quality "fried" snacks -- on discount for less than $40 (originally $100) as its Deal of the Day.

Surely you've heard the term "air fryer" thrown around over the last few years. The air fryer craze is in full swing, especially with folks looking for a lower-fat solution to crave-worthy fried foods like french fries, mozzarella sticks and chicken wings. Air frying achieves similar results, locking flavor in with moist inside and crispy skin through extreme convection, using little or no oil at all.
