Kmart Australia has almost completely sold out of its hugely popular $69 air fryers.
Disgruntled shoppers say they’ve been unable to get their hands on Kmart’s Anko 3-in-1 Air Fryer anywhere in Perth.
The product has also sold out in Darwin, and supplies are dwindling across all of Australia’s major capital cities.
The product which is sold in 3.2 and 5.3 litre sizes has been flying off the shelves since it was launched in 2018.

In Sydney, dozens of outlets don’t currently stock the air fryers, however they are still available at Marrickville and Pagewood.
Brisbane residents will also struggle to get their hands on an air fryer and will need to travel a to Mt Gravatt in order to purchase one.
Canberra, Adelaide and Hobart are all reporting limited stock levels across various stores.
The 5.3 litre version is also completely sold out online.
Shoppers have been venting their anger about stock levels on social media.
‘I went yesterday and EVERYTHING I wanted was not available. The aisles were so empty. What is the point of being open honestly,’ one shopper wrote.
‘I went to Kmart today and the shelves were literally EMPTY. A few serving boards left. Virtually no crockery, plastic ware…. row after row were just empty,’ another said.
‘Went to my local Kmart on Saturday and the whole place was almost empty!! It’s an absolute joke!’

Photographs of empty shelves at Kmart stores across the country have been cropping up online over the past week.
The retailer has been facing issues with stock levels due to issues associated with COVID-19.
Kmart Australia and New Zealand’s Retail Director, John Gualtieri issued an update to customers last week acknowledging there would be some delays to restocking the shelves.
The company put a hold on importing supplies when demand dropped at the beginning of the pandemic.
But Mr Gualtieri has also blamed changes to manufacturing overseas for the slow return of products to the retailers shelves.
‘Some of the countries where we manufacture our physical products were also put into lockdown at this time, putting production of some of our goods on hold for a period of time,’ Mr Gualtieri said.
Kmart Australia says it expects stock levels to ‘normalise’ by the end of July.
‘We are working as fast as we can to correct this. I would like to thank you all for your understanding, patience and ongoing support,’ he said.
