Aldi Australia Is Selling A 2.5L Air Fryer Next Weekend For $40
Most of us have resorted to recreating our favourite restaurant meals at home during self-isolation.
But unless you have the right gear, that casserole with pomme frites and a beautiful red wine jus is just going to look like slop.
Getting all the kitchen devices will set you back a pretty penny, so it's understandable why you wouldn't be able to create restaurant quality food in your home.
However, if you have a cheeky $40 to spare next weekend, you will be able to get your grubby mitts on a pretty nifty piece of kit.
Aldi Australia will be slinging a two and a half litre air fryer for less than the cost of a case of beer.
The low-cost supermarket chain unveiled an eight litre air fryer earlier this year and people went absolutely nuts for it. Sadly, this one is a quarter of the size, but you can still fry up loads of food with that size.
The 1000W gadget comes with an LED touch panel, adjustable timer and temperature and non-stick pot.
It will be available to buy under the company's Special Buys program from May 23.

Aldi Australia Is Selling That Thermo Cooker Again Now That Everyone Is Upping Their Cooking Skills
Australians have just started discovering that you can do a lot more with an air fryer than just cook chips. Recipes have started popping up on social media showing you can cook a very delicious looking pork belly with the device.
Previously, it used to take hours to get the pork cooked all the way to the centre while having the skin on top in the best possible spot.
But, now you just have to whack it into an air fryer for an hour at 200 degrees and you'll be feasting on the best pork imaginable.
Recipes have been uploaded to social media pages dedicated to the device, like Air Fryer Recipes Australia, and people have been going wild.
To get started, you'll have to ensure that the skin of your pork belly is incredibly dry. You should leave it in your fridge uncovered until you're ready to use it as this will remove as much moisture as possible.
When you're getting to pop it into the air fryer, first use a paper towel to get rid of any obvious or excess liquid on the top.
Then score the skin with a knife, drizzle oil on the top and rub some salt into the skin to get it ready to crackle.
Once that's all done, whack some oil in the bottom of your air fryer and turn it up to the designated temperature.
Then you'll have to do something for an hour to fill in the time. Maybe you could learn a few TikTok dances, whip up an accompanying salad, or go for a run. Or you could just sit in front of the air fryer and smell the delicious pork belly cooking.
