Aldi's new air fryer expected to sell out on first day – here's what you need to know

Aldi has released its newest Special Buys catalogue, featuring a dual basket air fryer which the retailer warns “may sell out on the first day”.

Introduced as a new cooking craze, air fryers are now a staple in many Aussie households.

Those who haven’t yet scooped up one of the trendy appliances will now have a chance at their local Aldi from Saturday May 7, 2022.

The Ambiano Professional Dual Basket Air Fryer contains not one but two 4.5-litre non-stick baskets, which are designed to allow the user to cook two foods simultaneously - at different temperatures and times.

A "match cook" button ensures that both meals will be ready on time, while reminder buttons will alert when it’s time for food to be turned over.

The air fryer also boasts a long list of other features, including overheat protection, adjustable temperatures and timers, LED display with touch buttons, removable bases for easy cleaning, and non-slip feet.

The air fryers will be available in Aldi’s middle aisle for a limited time while stocks last from Saturday, and they're priced at only $129 each.

Delays plague Special Buys

Special Buys delays are still in place for many Aldi items, with the Aldi website warning that the new air fryer may also be affected.

A message reads: "This product is experiencing shipping delays, which means it will not be available in some stores for the advertised date." To find out which stores are affected, visit the Aldi website.

Aldi’s website also states that store staff will be doing their best to ensure customers do not miss out, while customers are warned to get in quick.

"In the event of unexpected high demand, Aldi Stores reserves the right to limit purchases to reasonable quantities,” reads another message on the website.

“Please note stocks are limited and will vary between stores. Despite our careful planning, we apologise if selected items may sell out on the first day due to unexpected high demand."
