We love nothing more than perfectly crispy chicken wings and French fries fresh out of the frying basket. Unfortunately, the mess of deep-frying can be a lot to handle, especially for all the weeknight and weekend cooking we’re doing these days. A handy solution is an appliance you’ve likely heard about over and over: an air fryer. If you’ve been debating an air fryer purchase, the day to act has just arrived.

The Cosori Air Fryer is one of the top-rated appliances in its class and is currently the Deal of the Day on Amazon. The fast-frying technology heats and cooks food faster than a traditional oven while maintaining that crispy taste and texture we love in fried foods (with 85% less oil, of course). The twist dial makes it simple to use for any home cook, and the rarely discounted larger size is on sale for 25% off right now at $67 (originally $90).

This Cosori fryer has hundreds of five-star ratings from happy customers. Customers use it for several types of food, and some use it as often as every night. “I have had the air fryer for several days and find myself using it pretty much every night. I have cooked chicken breasts, pork, shrimps and vegetables (like beans, eggplant, mushroom). It is incredible how juicy everything turns out while being crisp on the outside,” says one reviewer, “Cooking times are shorter, and you save yourself the mess from cooking things in a frying pan on the stove in oil.“

Customers also note how easy it is to use and clean. As one reviewer writes, “We have been using this for a while now and love it. It is super simple to use because it has just the two dials. It doesn't take very long to preheat and cleanup is fast. I just use a kitchen brush with some dish soap on it and everything comes right off with no hard scrubbing.”

If you’re cooking for a family, this 5.8-quart basket size is perfect for serving 3 to 5 people. The nonstick frying basket is dishwasher-safe, and the appliance comes with a recipe book to boot. The matte finish on the fryer leaves no greasy fingerprints, and the larger capacity means that you can fry a full batch at once.

The deal will only last until this evening, so you’ll need to act fast to scoop up the fryer at the 25% discount. For a tool you’ll be using at least once a week, it’s a steal. Those fries aren’t going to crisp themselves!
