This Bella air fryer and Shark cordless vacuum are both 50% off today at Best Buy

A few sweet hump day deals from Best Buy.

Best Buy

I bought my dad an air fryer this past holiday and quickly -- via his unbridled enthusiasm for it -- learned that you really can use this thing for every meal. Like quick, no-mess air fryer frittatas for breakfast, for instance, with crunchy breakfast potatoes that use far less oil. It also makes juicy lunch-salad proteins like chicken breast and shrimp in about half the time of a standard oven, and for dinner, he spoils himself with healthy(er) chicken wings or "fried" chicken, and easy sides such as sweet potato wedges and crispy Brussel sprouts.

As it happens, Best Buy has a highly rated Bella Pro Series 3.7-Quart Digital air fryer on sale for just $60 today, more than half off its usual price. The Bella air fryer can cook up to three pounds of food (enough for a group) and do it fast with a 1,500-watt super convection heating system. And simple digital controls and timer settings make for a real "set it and forget it" situation.

Should you spring for the air fryer, you're likely going to be hosting get-togethers more often, which may also mean more mess to clean. For every problem, a solution: Best Buy also has the powerful Shark ION powered-lift cordless vacuum on sale for $225 (50% off). It too gets high marks in user reviews and is often compared to a Dyson in terms of performance, just at a lower price.

Both the Bella air fryer and Shark vacuum will ship for free by Friday if you order today. Or you can buy it online and pick it up at a local Best Buy in just a few hours, pending inventory.
