Air fryers have forever changed the way that we cook. Living in the South means that the summers are hot, and the last thing that we want to do is heat up our home by using the oven, but we still like home-cooked meals. With an air fryer we can cook a ton of different things, from proteins to veggies, without heating up the house, and the cleanup is a breeze.
A little over two years ago, I picked up one of the Bella 8-quart air fryers when it was on sale, and it's easily been the best money we've spent on a small kitchen appliance. Right now, it's on sale at Best Buy for $60, which is just a few dollars more than its all-time low.
Odds are that you've heard how great air fryers can be or you've experienced the magic of one firsthand. This option from Bella has an 8-quart capacity, making it great for families and gatherings of friends since you can cook more in it at once.
Best Buy just kicked off a sale to compete with Amazon's Prime Day (or Prime Early Access Sale) event that's taking place right now. These deals are set to last for just two days, so there's not much time to take advantage of this large discount. This model offers a large 8-quart capacity, making it great to cook for anywhere from one to four people, depending on what you're making. There are several different preset options for cooking different items, and you can set custom times and temperatures as well.
Cleaning this is a breeze as well. When we are finished cooking we put some dish soap in, add some water, and use the preheat function to warm the water up. Then we rinse it out and use the preheat feature again to dry it, and it's good to go for the next use. It's so easy and makes using it just that much more enjoyable.
There's not been a week that's gone by when we haven't used this at least three or four times to cook one part of a meal or another. We love it, and I bet if you try one that you'll feel the same way about it.
