The 5.5-quart Ninja Air Fryer is just $100 (was $150) at Amazon — and we have a feeling this deal won’t last. The multifunctional appliance boasts the ability to crisp everything from potatoes to veggies or dehydrate fruit for a sweet snack without the guilt and mess of cooking oil. 

It's the perfect way to whip up your tastiest sides, from crispy fries to cauliflower bites, even biscuits! It's the perfect one-and-done tool, so you're not taking up precious grill real estate.

"It really crisps up things we want to reheat and fry," writes a shopper. "It makes croutons from bread in minutes. Potatoes come out awesome. Fish too. Saves so much time and mess for fried things like onions, etc."

The Ninja Air Fryer has five preset cooking functions: air fry, bake, roast, reheat or dehydrate. “The basket is big enough to hold three pounds of wings or potatoes. I would cook that much in two batches so that the air circulates, because that is what makes everything cook up so crispy," another satisfied customer said. "I don't only fry in my Ninja, I heat up sandwiches, reheat leftovers, cook frozen food, pizza and burgers. It doesn't heat up the kitchen, and it doesn't leave a lingering smell like frying does.”

So how does it work? The secret is the unit’s smart processor, which ensures that hot air is evenly circulated so food can get that golden crispy finish in a short amount of time. The internal fan automatically adjusts its speed based on the cooking function and whips up those delicious snacks in no time.
