We can hardly remember a time when air fryers weren't considered the must-have gadget for at-home chefs. Since their arrival on the market a few years ago, air fryers have blossomed from a niche countertop appliance to a beloved culinary staple for families, students and anyone looking to spend less time in the kitchen.

And as it usually goes with best-selling gadgets, costs for the once-pricy appliance have shrunk, and as a result, shoppers can take home an air fryer for much less than they used to cost.

While Amazon Prime Day may be postponed in Canada due to the COVID-19 situation, savvy shoppers know there are still plenty of deals to take advantage of anyway. To introduce you to the air fryer phenomenon, we gathered nine top-rated air fryers from Amazon — all under $100.
