Call it a "mid-year's resolution": You're trying to eat better after a summer of barbecue, popcorn and funnel cakes. Well, lookee here: An air fryer is an easy — and fun — way to de-grease and uplift your diet, while keeping some crunchy fun in your life..
Amazon shoppers — over 5,000 of them — are convinced they found the best model. That would be the Ultrean Air Fryer, on sale for $65 right now.
This nifty device can grill, roast, bake and fry, all without any oil. It does that by circulating hot air, which crisps up those veggies, wings and more. No splatters, no extra fat, no mess, and all the flavor of your favorite fried food. Easy and delicious, with minimal effort on your part.
Folks are seriously hooked. Says a five-star fan: "I admit that I was wary about buying this — or any — air fryer. But I have been nothing but thrilled with the results. First, the food comes out fantastic — and the cleanup is quite easy. Second, it is super-easy to use. A quick 3-minute warmup at the desired cooking temp, and then you place the food in the nice-sized basket, set the temp and time, and you are done!"
Even grill masters are shocked by how perfect their wings turned out. Writes one: "I absolutely LOVE this air fryer. I have been so hesitant over the years, but I am thoroughly impressed. So far I’ve cooked wings, salmon and asparagus in it. Do yourself a favor and purchase!!"
One shopper even said it was "the best kitchen appliance ever."
"Cooks faster than the oven and tastes better," they shared. "Easy to use, no grease, better for your health. Super easy to clean. I wish I would have gotten one a long time ago!"
Other shoppers shared how much they love the appliance for veggies, including cauliflower and Brussels sprouts. It's also a great way to trick kids into trying something new, or trick your palette into thinking you’re eating something significantly worse for you than you really are.
You'll want to hop to it, though: Sales this great don’t last long.
A union-affiliated pension fund advisor said it is pressing Rivian on human rights and environment concerns in the electric vehicle startup's battery supply chain ahead of its expected blockbuster initial public offering. SOC Investment Group, in a letter sent Wednesday to Rivian board member Rose Marcario, called on the Irvine, California-based company to "commit to a rigorous human rights assessment of Rivian and its value chain" before it finalizes the S-1 document with U.S. regulators for its IPO. "Failure to address potential human rights abuses and environmental harms associated with the battery life cycle exposes Rivian to significant regulatory, litigation and reputational risks," SOC Executive Director Dieter Waizenegger said in the letter, calling on Rivian to respond by Nov. 3.

The holidays may not be as jolly for American online retailers or consumers this year. Adobe Analytics forecasts that online sales in November and December will grow at an average of 10% - the weakest pace in at least eight years. And that would be less than a third of last year’s record jump, when people staying indoors amid the health crisis opted to let their fingers do the shopping. Threatening to strain holiday commerce: product shortages due to supply chain issues, higher prices, and uncertainties tied to the health crisis. Adobe Digital Insights says the lack of clarity around what items could run out of stock and when is making it hard to determine whether product shortages could drive consumers to shop more online or in stores. Bargain hunters may also have a harder time this year. To cope with potential inventory shortfalls, retailers are offering fewer discounts and encouraging people to shop early. Adobe said consumers will face higher prices due to skyrocketing commodity and transportation expenses. They are expected to pay 9% more between Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday this year.

The U.S. Commerce Department on Wednesday announced new rules intended to curb the sale of offensive cybersecurity products to some countries with "authoritarian" practices, according to a Federal Register submission. U.S. companies and any company that sells U.S.-made cyber software will need a license when selling hacking tools to certain foreign governments or any buyers, including middlemen, located in Russia or China. "The United States Government opposes the misuse of technology to abuse human rights or conduct other malicious cyber activities, and these new rules will help ensure that U.S. companies are not fueling authoritarian practices," the Commerce Department said in a statement.
Britain said on Wednesday it had secured deals for two COVID-19 antivirals, one developed by Merck and the other by Pfizer, which it said could be used to treat patients by the end of the year if regulatory approval is granted. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has removed almost all COVID-19 restrictions and is relying on COVID-19 vaccines and treatments to try and withstand winter pressures on hospitals given high case numbers of more than 40,000 new infections a day. "We may soon have a new defence in our arsenal with two new antiviral drugs that we have secured," health minister Sajid Javid said in a statement.
