It's the cult buy product that's been landing in kitchens all around the country for much of the past year, and now Aldi's latest Special Buys are set to offer another bargain version sure to fly off the shelves.

Aldi's Wednesday Special Buys this week are set to include a 2.5-litre Air Fryer – perfect for singles, couples, smaller families or simply making side dishes – for just $39.99.

The temperature range for this model is 40-200C, however eager shoppers are urged to check Aldi’s website to see if their local store is impacted by ingoing delays in receiving the stock on time.

Plenty of people have already shared their excitement on social media, indicating any stock that is available will likely not last long.


“I haven’t bought an Aldi Special Buy in six months but that’s about to change this Wednesday," one fan wrote on his Mr Aldi Au Instagram account.

“You can’t beat that price,” another commented on Facebook.

Aldi fans have previously been left disappointed after missing out on a similar Special Buy last year from the popular German supermarket.

A Special Buys sale in 2020 featured a $149 23L air fryer oven with pizza function, but many social media users reported their local stores were unable to keep up with customer demand.

At the time an Aldi Spokesperson told Yahoo Lifestyle: “We forecast the stock levels of all Special Buys products based on several factors including the sales of previous, similar products. The forecasting and ordering of the air fryer occurred well before the impacts of COVID-19 and it is obvious that demand for home cooking appliances has never been stronger.

“As a retailer, we are as disappointed as our customers when we do not match demand. Our buying team are already placing orders to put this product back on sale in the coming months.”

Though if you are unlucky in nabbing the cheap kitchen appliance in this next sale, never fear, as there are some great alternatives available online and from other retailers.
