What is an Instant Pot?
The Instant Pot is a favorite appliance among busy families, college students, and all of us that can’t spend more than 30 minutes making dinner. It’s one of the best-selling appliances of all time, no wonder. Apart from being an electric pressure cooker, it has so many capabilities such as slow cooking, steaming, sautéing, yogurt-making, and so much more! No wonder we love it so much! They're famous for their amazing accessories, but now Instant Pot has given it another feature, air frying.
Instant Pot Air Fryer Lid
With the Instant Pot air fryer lid, you can safely and more healthfully create crispy vegetables, appetizers, and all kinds of frozen foods at the touch of a button! Apart from air frying, you can roast, broil, bake and reheat, too! Who needs an oven? The Instant Pot Duo Crisp is a large appliance that comes with all the features of a regular Instant Pot plus an air fryer lid and air fryer basket. The air fryer lid acts as a heating element and fan that circulates air to create tender and crispy air fried foods without all the added oil or fire hazard!
With the air fryer lid that comes with the Duo Crisp, you will need a place to store it. The lid is fairly large, but nothing compared to buying and storing an air fryer. And the Duo Crisp comes with a protective pad for placing the hot lid on. The Instant Pot Duo Crisp allows you have one appliance that does it all, and can really save you on appliance storage space. If you don’t already have an Instant Pot, but are interested in trying out both Instant Pot and air frying recipes, the Instant Pot Duo Crisp is the perfect appliance for you! It truly is a game changer.
If you already have an Instant Pot, you do have some other options. The company does sell an Air Fryer Lid that is compatible with most 6 qt Instant Pot products including the Duo, Duo Plus, Duo Nova, Duo Gourmet, Viva, Ultra and Lux models. Alternatively, if you have an Instant Pot larger than 6 qt, you may replace your current Instant Pot with the Duo Crisp to have one appliance that does it all. Or simply add the Duo Crips to your appliance selection, many people have more than one Instant Pot and simply love having multiple appliances!
Whether you’re new to air frying or are in the market for a better, more comprehensive, and well-rounded product, using the Instant Pot Duo Crisp or the Instant Pot air fryer lid may be a great option for you! Bonus: it makes everything taste amazing!
