TL;DR: The large-capacity Big Boss 16-quart air fryer is only $64.58 at Walmart, saving you $15.41.
Carnival season is just about in full swing, and you know what that means: deep fried everything.
We totally still back deep-fried Oreos, but we’ll also let you know that you can achieve that crispy carnival food at home without completely screwing your diet. The Big Boss 16-quart Oil-Less Air Fryer usually retails at $79.99 (don’t mind Walmart’s inflated price), but you can snag the black model for $64.58 with free next-day delivery.
A unique take on the concept of circulating hot air instead of drowning food in oil to crisp, halogen cookers can kind of be thought of as the first air fryers. No, they’re not glorified microwaves — many people back halogen ovens specifically for their ability to surround and cook food the whole way through, and the extra light to keep an eye on your food is pretty helpful, too.
One of the downsides of the traditional pull-out basket air fryers is that you can’t see your food cooking. Instead of banking on getting your timing perfectly, the glass bowl design of the Big Boss fryer lets you watch, stir, or add seasoning or sauce to your food without interrupting cooking. The two-tray design allows for multiple snacks at once.
At a whopping 16 quarts, this is also one of the best (and only) XXL capacity healthy fryers you can get. To put it in perspective, the biggest drawer-style fryers max out at 5.8-quarts, and those combination air fryer/toaster ovens are usually 10 quarts.
Regularly $79.99, you can save $15.41 and get the black model for $64.58 with free next-day delivery.
