Who says you need to drench your favorite fried foods in oil to get that crispy texture you love? Air fryers use far less oil than traditional frying. They circulate super hot air to create that crispy, crunchy outcome we all adore, but using just a few tablespoons of oil. Have you decided to get smart and join the air-fryer revolution? Here's your chance: Just in time for Memorial Day, QVC has slashed the price of popular PowerXL 10-Quart 8-in-1 Dual Basket Air Fryer with Smart Sync Technology. It's down to $80 (was $160) — that's 50% off and the lowest price we've seen on the web. Did we mention there's free standard shipping and handling, too?
Using rapid air technology, the PowerXL cooks food to crispy, golden-fried goodness. The LED touchscreen makes it easy to set the time and temperature, and the shake function reminds you when it's time to turn or shake your food, ensuring that it's evenly cooked. Eight preset buttons take the guesswork out of cooking — choose from settings like fish, steak, egg and vegetable. Watch the air fryer in action here.
Another plus: The two baskets combine into one 10-quart basket, making it large enough to fit a roast or even a full chicken.
And if you're new to QVC, you'll get $10 off your first order of $25 or more when you use the code SURPRISE at checkout, bringing the price down even further to just $70. If you want to customize your payment plan, you can also opt to pay in five installments of $16.
Sound too good to be true? Plenty of five-star reviewers have experienced firsthand that it's not.
One noted how amazing the double basket is. "I needed the double basket for the way I cook and it has been perfect for my needs," the fan said. "It has a permanent home on my kitchen countertop. Controls are accurate for time and temperature. It's easy to clean — I wipe out the grease and loose bits left over from whatever I am cooking, pop it in the dishwasher and it cleans beautifully. The ability to make the two baskets into one larger one is an outstanding feature."
Another noted that it's perfect for large gatherings like summer barbecues. "I use it most for extras like French fries, sweet potato fries and chicken tenders," raved the five-star reviewer. "It makes outdoor cooking much easier."
Fans are loving the health benefits. "I'm in the process of losing weight," a customer reported "and this fits [perfectly] into my lifestyle. The food is tasty and everything cooks faster then the conventional oven. It's easy to clean the machine and a nice-looking appliance to keep on my countertop."
This shopper won't go without it: "Cooks everything perfect! I have other air fryers, but this is my favorite. I use it every day."
It's rare to see a great air fryer for such a low price, so be sure to grab your PowerXL 10-Quart 8-in-1 Dual Basket Air Fryer with Smart Sync Technology before it sells out!
