If you're in the market for a Black Friday air fryer deal, then you've landed in the right place. We're totally obsessed with this innovative kitchen gadget, and not only will it shave money off your bills, but it makes life 10 times easier in the kitchen. We've reviewed our fair share of air fryers (23 and counting to be precise), and we've come to the conclusion that Instant (yes, the same brand as the Instant Pot) manufactures some of the best in the business. Namely, its Instant Vortex Plus models. However, finding them in stock is a different kettle of fish.
This Black Friday, though, we're here to scour the web to find Instant Vortex Plus air fryers in stock (and hopefully on sale) for you. We're focusing on the Instant Vortex Plus 6-in-1 and the Instant Vortex Plus with ClearCook in particular, both of which are great alternatives to a Ninja air fryer if you are on a budget.

With $50/£50 off, this air fryer is a total steal. The things we love the most about it include its generous capacity, handy insert that makes it a dual-zone cooker, and that it has multiple cooking modes. As well as being able to air fry, the Vortex Plus can bake, broil, dehydrate, reheat, and roast food. You can literally use it to cook an entire chicken! On the flip side, its buttons are a little noisy... but other than that, the only hardship is not being able to find it in stock when it's actually on sale!

Want to see the progress of your chips as they're getting hot hot hot in your air fryer? This glass air fryer takes the guesswork out of cooking. It's also 6-in-1 and it has built-in OdourErase to banish cooking smells once and for all. It's slightly more expensive and comes in two sizes, a 5.7 L or 7.6 L version. It's one of the best Ninja air fryer dupes if you're on a budget.
Why are Instant air fryers so popular?
We've been chatting with our head of reviews, Millie Fender, to understand why Instant air fryers are so popular. Aside from their features that we've mentioned above, here's what she has to say about the models she's had hands-on experience with...
Millie has tested her fair share of air fryers and is partly responsible for testing the majority of the air fryers we've had hands-on experience with, either at home or in our testing center in Reading, UK. Millie rates the Instant Vortex Mini as her favorite ever air fryer as it fits into her lifestyle so well. She lives with her partner in an apartment in South London and it fits into her compact kitchen area so well.
"I've tried over 20 air fryers, so it says a lot that the one I keep in my personal kitchen is the cheap and very cheerful Instant Vortex Mini. I've also got the Instant Vortex Plus in my cupboard for any larger meals - so basically - I'm a massive fan of an Instant air fryer. The controls are user-friendly and unfussy, they look pretty great with high-tech but not intimidating designs, and they make a mean french fry. I also like that they pre-heat, which is something you won't get with a Ninja air fryer, and they always remind you to turn your food halfway through cook times."

Read our Instant Vortex Mini review for a deeper insight, otherwise, this one is a better choice for smaller kitchens. It fits inside a kitchen cabinet or cupboard for easy storage and comes in a range of colors. Plus, it's super affordable.
Perfect for three to four people, this air fryer will fit seamlessly into your family's everyday meal prep. It can bake, roast, reheat, and air fry. It's slightly more simple than the Instant Vortex Pro, but that doesn't mean it's not worth your money.
The largest of all of the Instant Vortex Plus air fryers, this one is a dual basket model too with a divider that you can use or store away. It's great for big families thanks to its whopping 8.5-liter capacity, and it's super easy to use. You can use it to roast, bake, reheat, grill, and dehydrate food as well.
