8,251 Amazon Shoppers Love This Stylish Air Fryer — and It's Only $50
Air fryers have definitely become the "must have" kitchen appliance over the last few years for making fried food in the healthiest way possible. Using an air fryer eliminates the need to douse your food in oil, while still giving you that crispy crunch you're craving, making it a "healthier cooking method," according to a 2017 study published in the Journal of Food Science. If you've been holding out on buying an air fryer, now is the time to invest in your health and your taste buds with the ever-popular Dash Tasti-Crisp Air Fryer that's on sale, starting at just $50.
The adorable Dash air fryer, which has over 8,000 five-star ratings, is being called the "adult Easy-Bake oven" and a "game changer" by home cooks and Amazon shoppers alike. It has become so popular that the Dash Tasti-Crisp is one of Amazon's best-selling air fryers. And at $50, it is by far the cheapest best-seller to date.

So how does an air fryer work exactly? Like most, the Dash Tasti-Crisp uses hot air that stays contained in the 2.6-quart non-stick crisper basket to circulate and evenly cook your favorite air fryer recipes — everything from chicken tenders and salmon to doughnuts and apple chips.
While the air fryer is heating up inside, the exterior and handle remain cool to the touch. So once your food is ready, you can leave the oven mitts in the drawer and serve your food in minutes (and without the greasy mess).
"I love this air fryer," says an Amazon shopper. "I don't use oil when cooking, so I was always baking things, which would dry everything out and things weren't cooked evenly. This air fryer has been a game changer."
With an easy-to-control dial that lets you set the temperature and a timer that has an auto-off function, the air fryer ensures you'll also get perfectly crispy food without the potential of burning your snack or meal. Despite its fairly large frying basket, this Dash appliance can sit on your countertop without taking up too much precious countertop space. And Amazon shoppers can't get over how much they love this trendy appliance.
"I've used my air fryer practically every day since I bought it, it makes everything I cook better," says one reviewer. "We use it to reheat pizza, make french fries, roast vegetables like winter squash, cook fried chicken and burritos, the possibilities are endless!"
Since the Dash air fryer can automatically shut off, the shopper says she doesn't have to "worry the way I would if something was in the oven."
If you're excited to try this technology for yourself, look no further than the Dash Tasti-Crisp Air Fryer. Available in six adorable colors (including teal, aqua, and white), the only issue you'll have is choosing just one! If you act quickly, you can get it for just $50 right now.
