We’re getting down to the final hours of Amazon Prime Day 2022, but we’re still seeing sitewide savings for Prime members on popular categories ranging from fitness and beauty to mattresses, pet products and tech. If you’re exhausted from all the savings, hang on a little longer and consider the air fryer: you can make almost anything in it, experts told us, and it’s super easy to maintain. And whether you’re planning to cook a nice dinner over the weekend or host a Sunday night dinner, Amazon continues to offer notable discounts on air fryers from brands like Instant Pot, Ninja and Cosori during the last few hours of its Prime Day holiday.
Prime Day’s history traces back to 2015 when Amazon first created the fleeting shopping holiday — and after seven years, it’s grown so big that other retailers like Target and Kohl’s are now hosting their own counter sales. To help you make the most of it, we compiled some of the best Prime Day air fryers deals and sales still live on Amazon, plus highlighted other notable ongoing deals from counter sales at other retailers.
The best Prime Day air fryers deals
Below, we’re sharing the best Prime Day air fryers deals based on our previous coverage and reporting. To ensure the quality of each deal, we’re running deals through price trackers like CamelCamelCamel and Honey — each product is at its lowest price in at least three months.
- 4.7-star average rating from 14,244 reviews on Amazon
The 5.7-quart Instant Pot Vortex Air Fryer is a smaller version of the 6-quart we recommend, and it offers all the same great qualities the larger Vortex does: It can air fry, broil, roast and reheat. Not only that, but it’s also large — the brand says it can fit 2 pounds of french fries or 4 pounds of chicken, for instance — and its basket is dishwasher-safe. This version of the Vortex comes with a grill plate and a skewer set for accessorizing, too.
- 4.7-star average rating from 5,081 reviews on Amazon
The Instant Pot Vortex Mini does all the same things the Vortex does, but it’s one-third the size — 2 quarts — to fit on counters with less space. Otherwise it’s business as usual, with settings to air fry, broil, roast and reheat your food and cooking programs that only require one touch from you to get started.
- 4.4-star average rating from 2,891 reviews on Amazon
Instant Vortex makes its own Nonstick Grill Pan designed to be used in its air fryers. This is a two-piece set to be used to grill and sear meat, fish and veggies depending on your meal — it comes with a perforated pan and a solid tray that you can use together or separately. The nonstick grill pan is dishwasher-safe for easy cleanups, too.
- 4.7-star average rating from 1,956 reviews on Amazon
The Ninja Digital Air Fry Pro Countertop 8-in-1 Oven is more than just an air fryer — it’s the evolution of an all-in-one smart oven we’ve recommended that air roasts, bakes, broils, toasts, dehydrates, keeps your food warm and, yes, air fries. Ninja says that you can fit a full 2-pound roast inside of it — or a 13-inch pizza.
- 4.8-star average rating from 27,455 reviews on Amazon
Smaller than the 6-in-1 — but with more ways to cook — Ninja’s 9-in-1 Pressure Cooker and Air Fryer has a 5-quart capacity and has the ability to air fry, crisp, pressure cook, sear, steam, slow cook, roast, broil, make yogurt and keep food warm with the press of a button. It comes with a crisper plate and broil rack to help you get started.
- 4.5-star average rating from 9,050 reviews on Amazon
Cosori's air fryer combo oven gives you a dozen cooking presets for making pizza, roasting, air frying, toasting, broiling, baking cookies, rotisserie cooking, dehydrating, fermenting — are you still listening? — and keeping food warm. It’s one of our favorite smart ovens, and Cosori says that it’s large enough to fit a 13-inch pizza, a 5-pound whole chicken or a dozen cupcakes. A nonstick interior should mean easier cleanups, too, the brand says.
- 4.8-star average rating from 2,492 reviews on Amazon
Cosori makes one of our favorite air fryers, and this 6.8-quart Air Fryer Large Oven with Dual Blaze Tech offers even more than the original does. It has patented temperature control that the brand says lets you make real-time adjustments while you cook, plus an aluminum basket that Cosori says conducts heat more effectively than traditional iron baskets. It also has 12 one-touch cooking functions, like air fry, bake, broil and roast, as well as more specific functions like chicken, steak and seafood. You can also control the air fryer remotely with a smartphone app.
- 4.7-star average rating from 703 reviews on Amazon
Though not labeled an air fryer, the Ninja Foodi Smart XL Pro 7-in-1 Indoor Grill can be used to air fry, as well as grill, barbecue, roast, bake, broil and dehydrate, depending on what you’re cooking. Ninja says this model is its most powerful grill, with temperatures going up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. It can fit up to six steaks or a whole platter of nachos on the grill grate, as well as six pancakes on its griddle, the brand says.
- 4.7-star average rating from 952 reviews on Amazon
The Instant Pot Vortex Plus 6-Quart Air Fryer Oven is another iteration of the Instant Pot franchise. Its oven is 6 quarts large, with a clear window so you can keep track of your food as it’s cooking — Instant Pot says you can air fry with it, as well as bake, broil, dehydrate, reheat and roast. The Vortex also has built-in and replaceable air filters to remove odors and ensure that your air fryer doesn’t start to stink.
- 4.7-star average rating from 28,090 reviews on Amazon
Stasher bags are a Select-approved way to store food — Select intern Zoe Malin especially loves them for meal prepping, portioning out ingredients to make smoothies or salads for lunch. This four-pack is a good way to store some of the food you’ve made in your air fryer, especially if you’ve accidentally made a surplus. There are four bags in this pack — a half gallon, a sandwich bag, a snack bag and a stand-up mega bag. Plus, they’re dishwasher-, microwave-, freezer- and sous vide-safe, so you can use them in all kinds of situations.
- 4.4-star average rating from 655 reviews on Amazon
Experts have recommended several of Philips’ air fryers and emphasized how long they last (very long). This one, the Philips Premium Digital XL Air Fryer, is rated to hold 3 quarts. It also has a screen to display the temperature, as well as the ability to air fry, bake, grill, roast, reheat, dehydrate and toast.
- 4.5-star average rating from 1,297 reviews on Amazon
These BPA-free silicone circular air fryer liners from Lotelli Kitchen are meant to protect the bottom of your air frying basket.
