If you haven’t taken the plunge on an air fryer yet, now's the time. You can’t miss out any longer on the ease of life with this wildly popular countertop appliance. Air frying is every bit as magical as folks say. It lets you cook with little to no oil, allows you to make delicious things that would otherwise be a huge pain and keeps your kitchen clean. With this compact, sleek model — and this epic deal from HSN — you can’t afford not to treat yourself (or a friend).

Right now HSN has reduced the price of the Kitchen HQ fryer from $55 to just $40 (or three, interest-free FlexPay payments of $13). Plus, if you’re new to HSN you’ll get $20 off your first order with code HSN2021. And to sweeten the deal, they guarantee it will arrive before Christmas.

The Kitchen HQ fryer is both an energy saver and a multi-talented workhorse and its two-quart capacity is just the right size for couples or singles. Sure, it’ll turn out the crispiest, most delicious fries, mozzarella sticks and chicken nuggets, but it’ll also prepare a complete, piping-hot dinner; toss in your pork chops, steaks, salmon or veggies for a quick, easy, all-in-one meal after a long day.

Wait 'til you see it in action in this HSN video — but be forewarned: This demo will set your stomach growling.

One thing we appreciate about the Kitchen HQ fryer is its simplicity. The machine operates at a pre-programmed 400 degrees to make perfect food every time. If you’ve had it with appliances that confront you with enough dials, switches, knobs and readouts to fly a small plane, you’ll love this one-dial design. You simply set the timer (a display on top recommends cooking times for certain foods) and turn it on. That’s it.

Easy to use, and — and at more than 30 percent off — easy to buy. The five-star reviews are plentiful:

“This thing makes everything taste great...So simple to use,” says one. “Quicker and better than the oven. Easy to use and clean up. Stays on countertop since it is not large and looks cute.”

“This air fryer is awesome,” says another. “We use it several times per week. Food cooks perfectly. Easy cleanup.”

The Kitchen HQ comes in five great colors: black, red, silver, blue and teal. It’s a perfect gift for couples or singles, and a great addition to your own kitchen. At just 10 inches high, it tucks away nicely — though there’s a chance you’ll be using it so much, it'll never makes it into the cabinet.
