My family bought an air fryer from Aldi a few years ago, and it’s become one of the most-used appliances in our kitchen. It’s ideal for reheating leftovers and is great for cooking breaded or crispy foods such as chicken fingers, fries, egg rolls, hash brown patties, or mozzarella sticks. I also like cooking veggies such as asparagus or diced cauliflower in the air fryer with a little olive oil, salt, pepper, and some grated Parmesan cheese.
While my family has a standard-sized air fryer, you can sometimes find larger air fryers or smaller ones, depending on how many people you need to feed. Aldi has sold several types of air fryers over the years, and they’ve even offered some novel combination twists on air fryers, including a pressure cooker and air fryer combo and an air fryer oven with rotisserie.
Most recently, Aldi is selling a compact air fryer.
What We Know:
The Ambiano Compact Air Fryer (Product Code: 704385) cost $34.99 at the time of publication. That’s on the lower end of prices compared to air fryers on Amazon.
This is an Aldi Find, so it’s only in stores for a short time. Each store gets just one shipment, and once that sells out, they’re gone unless Aldi decides to bring them back. Aldi does not offer online ordering for products that aren’t in stock at your local store. Aldi does bring this compact air fryer back sometimes. The grocer sold it in 2020 and 2021 for the same price.
Here’s more information about the compact air fryer, according to Aldi:
- Features 1200 watt high performance circular heat technology
- Includes adjustable temperature and timer
- Dishwasher safe crisping tray and basket
- Compact size and sleek matte finish
- Available in black or blue
Aldi has not published information about any kind of warranty for the 2022 compact air fryer, but the 2021 model came with a three-year warranty.
What We Don’t Know:
We haven’t tried this compact air fryer, so we don’t know how well it works. Aldi also has not yet published the dimensions or the basket capacity for this air fryer, which would be helpful since it is on the smaller side. We write open threads so readers can share about their experiences with Aldi products.
