I test kitchen gear for a living and the Instant Pot Vortex is my fave air fryer — plus it's over 45% off

I've got all the kitchen appliances you can think of, but I turn to my air fryer more often than any of the others. And for good reason— they let you crisp foods without a lot of oil, they're a lot more efficient than a regular oven and they're super easy to clean. One of the best air fryers on the market? The Instant Pot Vortex Plus 6-in-1. Yes, it's made by the same people behind the iconic Instant Pot, so you know it comes from a high-quality brand. It's highly rated on a bunch of different reputable kitchen websites plus it has over 19,000 five-star reviews on Amazon. Even better news: The 4-quart model is currently over 45% off on Amazon, bringing it down to $70.

This compact yet efficient air fryer has so many functions: air fry, broil, roast, dehydrate, bake and reheat. Plus, it's easy to clean.

This small yet mighty air fryer can also broil, roast, dehydrate, bake and reheat. It features customizable programs for frequently cooked foods like wings, roasted veggies and more. What we especially love about it is that it has little to no preheating time, making it ideal for quick dinners. The 4-quart size is just right for whipping up snacks for the game or a meal for two.

"It's perfect!" exclaims one happy five-star reviewer. "I absolutely love it. Box says it can fit up to 2.5 pounds of chicken, which is plenty for me to eat plus have leftovers for a couple days, or even if I want seconds or thirds. The 4-quart is plenty for a single person or maybe if you cook for one or two other people."

Another said it completely transformed their weekly food routine. "I'll cut to the chase: once you get this thing, you'll never use anything else to cook. You literally throw things in this air fryer, press a couple buttons, check things out halfway through, and return at the end to perfectly cooked food ... If you're a meat and potatoes person like I am, this thing is amazing and will save you a lot of meal prep time."

"I cannot believe I’ve been without this miracle machine until now,air" raved an enthusiastic shopper. "I bought this for my RV ... I have cooked sliced potatoes with shredded cheese on top (at the end of course) and stroganoff, ramen, etc. Those things air-fry amazingly!"

The Instant Pot Vortex Plus is one of the highest-rated air fryers on the market, with over 19,000 five-star reviews on Amazon.
