Aldi shoppers in 187,000 person-long site queue as Ninja air fryer dupe drops

It seems Glastonbury wasn’t the only thing sending the internet into chaos on Sunday morning.

As of 10:30am today, there was a 187,730-strong queue to enter the Aldi website.

Why on earth would there be such demand to get into a supermarket chain’s site, we hear you ask?

Well, it all seems to be down to the fact that a dupe of the Ninja Dual Air Fryer is among the new Aldi Specialbuys dropping today.

This air fryer is priced at £89.99, which makes it an impressive £140 cheaper than the Ninja version.

Aldi customers were told to ‘set their alarms’ for 8am today to be up in time to catch the big launch.

The Ambiano Dual Basket Air Fryer comes equipped with a touch screen and two four-litre cooking baskets with soft touch handles.

There are seven pre-set programs to cook with, a 60-minute timer and temperature controls, as well as defrost, keep warm, and sync functions.

If you miss the chance to grab one online today, then your next chance will come when the air fryer dupes reach stores.

At one minute past 11am, a message on the queue site was added that reads: ‘Our Air Fryers are in high demand, and have very limited availability.

‘They will be on sale in-store from the 13th of November’.

Something that’s also likely not helping matters is the launch of Aldi’s teaser Christmas trailer featuring the iconic Kevin the Carrot character.

Every year, Kevin’s popularity sends shoppers into a frenzy trying to buy carrot-themed merch for their kids at Christmastime, and they’re liable to sell out very quickly.
