Aldi's new single-basket air fryer features an innovative design similar to higher-end models – but for £60 less

For under £40, it's a steal

Aldi's sellout air fryer is landing back in stores on March 24th, and it might just be our favourite single-basket variation they've launched so far. Priced at £39.99, the budget supermarket's new air fryer is equipped with a viewing window, a coveted feature often only found among higher-end models.

It goes without saying that Aldi's air fryers continually rank as one of the best air fryers you can snag on a budget. But this time, it appears as though shoppers can get even more value for money with this new model that we guarantee you won't want to miss out on.

When considering things to look for when buying an air fryer, buying one that is fully equipped with all the necessary functions to make your life easier is a no-brainer. However, amidst all the helpful 'keep warm' and pre-heat functions readily available in many models on the market, a viewing window is easily one of the most lusted over. Now, thanks to Aldi, you can indulge in its convenience for under £40.

If you have your heart set on picking up an air fryer for under £100 without compromising on a handful of great features, Aldi's new 5L Air Fryer with Viewing Window is certainly one to keep on your radar.

As we've already touched on, the new single-basket model boasts a viewing window which will allow you to keep an eye on your food without having to continually keep opening the basket – a common air fryer mistake many of us often fall victim to.

The only other air fryers we've tested with a similar feature are the Instant Vortex Plus 6-in-1 Air Fryer (retailing for £149.99) and the Lakeland Dual Basket Air Fryer with Easy View (which typically goes for £99.99). So, you can already see the savings compared to these higher-end models.

However, another notable design choice is the all-new colourway, being bang on trend with the white air fryers we've seen many people favouring in their kitchens. So, given its sleek and pretty design, we won't be surprised to see this one sell out just as quickly as the previous models. 

The new single-basket Aldi air fryer features multiple functions just at the touch of a button on a digital interface as well as a 60-minute timer, adjustable temperature controls, and cool touch handles.

While we're eager to see this new model with the viewing window in action, if you're one to favour dual-zone air fryers instead, you'll be pleased to know that the two-time sellout Aldi dual basket air fryer will be hitting shelves on the same day, too.

Needless to say, the 24th of March is going to be a special day for air fryer and Aldi lovers alike – even more so if you proudly consider yourself as both. Trust us when we say you don't want to miss this drop.
