If you're like us, you've been waking up lately, throwing open your windows and smiling out at the dazzling sunshine. That's springtime — warm temps, blossoming bouquets and the greenest grass you've seen since last September. Two things become clear: 1) You want to be outdoors as much as possible, and 2) When it comes to food prep, you do NOT want to spend any more time in a stuffy, overheated kitchen than you have to.

And that, friends, is why there's no time like now to finally get yourself an air fryer…or a new air fryer. Specifically, there's no better time to get the Ninja AF101, because Amazon's marked it down a hefty $50 bucks. Your price? A ridonculous $80.

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

Unless you've been living in a cave (in which case you don't have electricity anyway, so feel free to click away), you've probably heard tons of hype about air fryers. And guess what? It's all true. Their main selling point is that they allow you to create all your fave crunchy snacks and meal using up to 75 less fat. That's a godsend for fans of wings, fries and the like.

We like the AF101 because, well, it's a Ninja, the leading air fryer brand, and also because it combines that essential feature with a couple of others, resulting in an efficiency, versatility and convenience you just don't find in lesser models.

For one thing, there's its size. If you're feeding a large brood, yes, you may be better served by a larger model, but the AF101's 4-quart basket is perfect for singletons, couples or a pair of hungry, hungry housemates. And while there are models out there that feature a gazillion functions, most of which none of us will ever use, this one keeps it simple. It's no-brainer front panel allows you to select Air Fry, Roast, Reheat or Dehydrate, and off you go.

That's right: It's not just for those times you're after crispiness; the AF101 will dang near replace your oven and microwave, allowing you a fast, clean cook on chops, fish, burgers, vegetables or a whole chicken. Brought home some pizza or a burrito that you weren't able to finish last night? Pop it in and bring it back to life — at a temp ranging from 105 to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Love yourself some dried fruit or jerky? It's yours, in a fraction of the time it would take using traditional (read: old, tiresome) methods. When you're done, just pop the basket into the dishwasher.

With that kind of simplicity, and without all that yucky, greasy oil to contend with, no wonder more than 29,000 shoppers have bestowed five-star reviews on the AF101.

"I love this air fryer so much!" gushed one repeat customer. "I’ve given it as a gift twice and obviously have my own. I wish I'd got on the air fryer wagon the day they came out. Seriously if you’re thinking about getting one, do."

"I’d been reading review after review before I finally decided to get this one, and I’m so glad I did," related this five-star fan. "I hardly use my oven anymore because I cook everything in the air fryer. It’s super easy to clean and very easy to use! Ninja keeps producing quality items!"

"My new favorite kitchen appliance," proclaimed this convert. "I told myself I would only be using this for snacks. I lied. I now use the Ninja almost daily. Homemade mini pizzas, veggies, the best wings I’ve ever had. And cleanup is a breeze."

Speaking of breezes: Get out of your kitchen and enjoy some!
