If you don't have an air fryer yet — what are you waiting for? These workhorse kitchen gadgets don't take up too much counter space, and do *so* much. Especially Instant Pot's standard Vortex, which is our test kitchen's favorite air fryer. Naturally, when a product we love has extra features and is on sale, we get pretty excited. Like the regular Vortex, this one air fries, roasts, bakes and reheats. Plus, it also broils, dehydrates and has a rotisserie function. When we tested the Vortex Plus, we found the dehydrate function perfectly dried fresh berries. We also love the stainless steel finish that will surely look sleek on any kitchen countertop.

Right now, it's on sale on Amazon in the 6-quart option — so you'll save $30 when you order now (making this upgraded model cheaper than the standard!) You'll find that most Instant Pot recipes are calculated for the 6-quart models, which are roomy enough for two pounds of fries or a butterflied 4-pound chicken. It's perfect for cooking meals for four people, or batch cooking for the week ahead.

With more than 28,000 five-star ratings, Amazon shoppers are loving the Vortex Plus, too. One writes, "I'm in love with a kitchen appliance! I LOVE it! Everything seems to taste better cooked in an air fryer. Even salmon is more moist and flavorful. Plus, food cooks more quickly than traditional oven or fryer methods."

Another asks, "Why did I wait so long to buy this?! I've made 'fried' chicken, Swedish meatballs, crispy new potatoes, reheated pizza, and even warmed donuts from the cider mill with great success. I can't recommend this air fryer enough!"
