Like a small subset of home cooks and chefs, I never understood the hype around air fryers. I'll admit, I was a skeptic who viewed them as just glorified mini ovens with a facelift that were full of big claims and variable results. Fortunately, I learned I had been missing out thanks to this Instant Pot Vortex Plus Air Fryer — which turned me into a believer. And the best part? Prime members can nab it for just $100 today. (If you want in on the deal, sign up for a free trial here.)

At the risk of sounding dramatic, my life has been changed by this air fryer. It's Amazon's bestselling convection oven and was developed by the makers of the beloved Instant Pot. Designed with a sleek digital touchscreen panel that only illuminates while switched on, it displays buttons for temperature, time, and six different cooking functions: air fry, roast, broil, bake, reheat, and dehydrate.

There's also a dial that controls cook time and temperature, a cancel button, a nonstick cooking tray, a windowed 6-quart basket, and an oven light to watch your items cook. An auto-shut-off function indicates when it's preheating, how much cooking time is left, and dings when it's time to flip your food — so you're left with unbelievably crispy french fries, vegetables, and proteins, every time. Not to mention, Amazon shoppers gave it over 1,700 five-star ratings, too, so you can bet many home cooks will be taking advantage of the 38% discount today as well.

This product has become my favorite tool for whipping up lunches and dinners in a pinch. I use it every time I toast bread, cook frozen vegetables, and make roasted chicken. I find the entire process is less messy than searing on the stovetop and faster than waiting for the oven to preheat. And let me tell you, I've never achieved juicier or crispier chicken than I have with this magical machine. (Just 15 to 20 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit and you're all set.) Lastly, it's also remarkably easy to clean, even when faced with catastrophic levels of chicken grease, it all came off with just a little scrub with soap and water.

No matter if you're looking to hop on the air fryer train or you just want to upgrade your current one to a more luxe option, the Instant Pot Vortex Plus is a no-brainer at a whopping $60 off. There are no guarantees that this discount will last, so head to Amazon now to take advantage of this incredible deal.
