[Best Buy] Instant Vortex Plus 10-Quart 7-in-1 Air Fryer Oven $129.99

A little pissed... just bought this a bit over a month ago on sale for $179. The regular price has dropped to the sale price I bought it for and now its on sale again.
I use this almost everyday and cooking a rotisserie chicken with it is awesome.

Its also the same price on Amazon too.

I tried to call BestBuy to refund the difference... it was a no go :(

Just bought the Ninja Foodie Grill from Costco on sale (haven't used yet). How does this compare to the Ninja?

OP, why not just buy this now and return it with your old receipt?
Please don't ask or beg for "thanks". Don't act like this is Facebook. If someone found your post helpful, let them decide if they want to make that click. The more you beg, the less you'll get. Cheers

Similar situation from Amazon. But I had a $50 gift card from work so I got it for this sale price so I can't really complain

Yes, but it has been extended due to the provincial guidelines affecting store operations

"For items purchased in Ontario after March 9, 2021, we’ll gladly give you a refund or exchange on your purchases until June 4, 2021."

Same price at Black Friday, but it looked very small. Maybe just an illusion.

I'm in the same boat. Just got mine a few weeks back and the pricing is fairly close.

Did some reading on the reviews for the instant vortex and found many people complaining about a toxic smell coming from the machine, which seeps into the food..

So since returns have been extended, I can purchase the new one and return the old one with the new one in the box? They won’t scan for serial numbers or stuff like that?

Just want to make sure it will work before purchasing, and with lockdown, can I do returns?

Anybody have first hand experience with both this, and the larger version or a 25-26L kaloric? This one comes with a rotisserie, but reviews on chicken size seem a bit mixed. I'd like the ability to airfry a med-large chicken. Tempted by the larger ones though which say they can do a 12lb turkey

Max chicken size recommended is 1-1.5 lbs. any bigger, it hits the bottom. I got this one and then got the 25L frigidaire for ~$130 from Costco. Instapot is great for fries, small whole chicken, other solid pieces like nuggets, etc. DIY fried chicken in semi-liquid batter doesnt work well.

Guys just a heads up. If you buy instant pot stuff good luck with warranty. My vortex broke and I have 4 instant pots one which broke. They dont respond to email, you wait on the phone for 30-45 min before somebody helps you. In my case they made false promises and never delivered even after I followed up with them many times. Ie the will promise to send you a new one and you might even get shipping label but nothing after that. Check BB reviews . Alot of people having the same experience.

GOSH! Sure sucks that they broke. Wonder if instructions were read or even bothered to take care of them.

Tray and the Circular bin: Simple to clean. Water, soap, rinse, air dry.

Inside and window .. when cool ... wipe with wet cloth.

Cleaning after each use.


I put the air fryer in a storage shelf that I built in the basement under the electrical panel when not in use. The Instant Pot pressure cooker is in the cabinet in the kitchen as it is used more often.
