Aldi's two-time sellout dual-zone air fryer is finally returning to stores – and it's less than £70

Over 80,000 people queued for it in 2022, and it's finally back

The sellout Aldi dual-zone air fryer is finally returning to stores on the 24th of March, right on time for all the festivities that come with springtime – from Easter celebrations to seasonal soirees, an air fryer will undoubtedly be a must-have in your kitchen lineup.

Aldi's dual-zone air fryer is easily one of the best air fryers that continually garners praise. Considering its affordable £69.99 price point compared to similar models on the market, it's no surprise Aldi fans dub the sellout appliance one of the best dual-zone air fryers out there. 

Upon its initial release in November 2022, over 80,000 people queued to try their luck at snagging the appliance, subsequently causing Aldi's website to crash.

Since then, the dual basket model has only returned to shelves once in November 2023, unsurprisingly selling out at lightning speed – as all the variations of Aldi air fryers do. Now, shoppers will once again have a chance to snag the coveted appliance when it hits stores this March without having to endure a year-long wait. That being said, you can probably guess why this launch is kind of a big deal for us.

The Dual Basket Air Fryer is returning to Aldi stores with a sleek, new makeover reminiscent of the first version of the budget supermarket's launch. While Aldi's most recent dual-zone model which launched last November had a stainless steel and black design, the new model sports a matte black design that truly gives it that high-end look despite it being an air fryer under £100.

Coming in at £69.99, it's slightly more expensive than the previous dual basket model which was priced at £49.99, but given its more luxe-looking design, we think it might just be worth it. Better yet, compared to the price of some of the more expensive air fryers we've tested at Ideal Home, we can't complain. Dare we say, it may even make the cut as a Ninja air fryer dupe to watch.

Aldi's new dual-zone air fryer is equipped with a digital touchscreen, a 60-minute timer, and adjustable temperature controls to make cooking at home quicker and even easier.

Not only that, but Aldi's budget air fryer accessories will also be returning to stores for just £1.49 each, including silicone air fryer liners and trays to maximise your appliance's capabilities.

Alternatively, if you don't need a larger air fryer for a family of four like this dual basket model, Aldi will also be launching a new 5L Air Fryer with Viewing Window for £39.99 that may be a better bet if you've got a small kitchen.
