It’s no secret that even though fried food tastes like a savory treat created by cooking geniuses, it’s not exactly the healthiest option. So when the air fryer—an appliance that “fries” food by circulating hot air rather than dousing it in oil—started gaining attention in recent years (Instant Pot even released its own air fryer this summer), we were more than a little excited. 

Because the device utilizes air instead of oil, the end result is food that contains significantly less fat than food that’s been deep fried using conventional methods. The best part? It still achieves that much-desired crispy exterior for a satisfying crunch. Oh, and did we mention that air fryers work in minutes, giving you healthier homemade dishes at the touch of a button?

If you’re ready to invest in this kitchen miracle-worker, now’s a good time to do so, because The Home Depot is offering one of its most popular appliances—the Kalorik 3.2-Quart. Digital Display Air Fryer—for 25 percent off.

You can use the multi-functional device to bake potatoes, grill steak, roast vegetables, and fry onion rings (just to name a few!) with hardly any oil—or, use one of the air fryer’s seven preset options to effortlessly prepare everything from French fries to fish. It also features a digital LED touchscreen control panel where you can make selections for the preset foods, set a timer, and adjust the temperature to up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

The appliance works by evenly circulating hot air around food placed in a 3.2-quart basket for tasty cooking in a snap. Not only is the non-stick basket large enough to hold up to two pounds of fresh or frozen food, but it’s also removable and dishwasher-safe for easy cleanup—even on the busiest weeknights. Plus, it includes a dual-layer rack so you can prepare two types of food at the same time. Talk about multi-tasking!

Unsurprisingly, 88 percent of The Home Depot customers say they recommend this product, which has garnered a 4.5-star rating and more than 300 customer reviews. Shoppers wrote that the air fryer prepares breaded foods so much better than an oven, as it’s able to produce that delicious crunch we all know and love. They also noted that the device doesn’t give off tons of heat while in use (like a toaster does) or take up too much space—a huge plus for those with tiny kitchens or minimal counter space to work with.

“This is a great little appliance when you want crispy food on the healthier side. No need for frying in oil anymore. It runs quiet and cooks food very quickly. It will definitely save energy compared to heating a big oven,” one reviewer wrote.

And since this air fryer is currently on sale for 25 percent off, now’s the best time to head to The Home Depot and get the all-in-one kitchen tool for yourself. But you’ll have to hurry—we don’t know how long this deal will last.
