Best Buy cuts prices on air fryers from Ninja Foodi, Cuisinart, Philips, more

Best Buy is dropping air fryer prices on best-selling models from Power, Ninja, Cuisinart, and more. Cooking with an air fryer is a healthier way to prepare fried food than with a traditional deep-fryer or by frying in a pan with lots of oil. Air fryers use little or no oil to cook food that still ends up crispy, browned on the outside, and soft on the inside.

Air fryers use electricity to circulate hot air with internal fans. Many air fryers also serve other cooking functions including searing, dehydrating, and cooking by convection, for a few examples.

We found the best deals on Best Buy for air fryers. Whether you’re buying a Mother’s Day gift, shopping for a present for an upcoming wedding, or looking forward to preparing guilt-free fried dishes, these seven deals can help you save up to $118.

What is a pressure cooker, and how do you use it?
Instant Pot Duo Plus on a kitchen countertop surrounded by food.

While pressure cookers may look intimidating, many of today's greatest pressure cookers are remarkably simple to operate. You can whip up some amazing entrees like curry and pot roast, whether you're cooking overnight or leaving them to simmer while you're at work. In this breakdown, we take a look at the fundamentals of pressure cooking, covering the device basics, and offering a few cooking suggestions of our own.
What is a pressure cooker?

A pressure cooker is an airtight cooking device that cooks food quickly, thanks to the steam pressure that builds up inside. The steam makes the food moist, which is why this device is perfect for meat stews, cheesecakes, and much more. There are stovetop pressure cookers that use the heat of the stove, as well as countertop units that you plug into a wall outlet. Many plug-in pressure cookers boast other features and functions, like slow cooking, steaming, and sautéing in addition to pressure cooking.
How do I use a pressure cooker?
Getting to know your pressure cooker for the first time? Try pressure cooking with just water -- this is called a water test, and it will help you get to know your machine better. All you have to do is add one or two cups of water into the pot (always use the inner pot, and never put food directly into the cooker without this pot for safety reasons). Lock the lid into position, and make sure to adjust the valve so that it is in the sealed position.

RoboBurger, on the other hand, claims to be the world's first fully autonomous robotic burger chef. That means it cooks the beef patties from scratch, toasts the bun, and adds the condiments before serving it up to waiting customers who fancy a change from McDonald’s.
