Instant Pot has a great line of products offering different designs of air fryers to meet different consumer needs, from traditional basket style to freestanding oven, and the latest trending air fryer lid. The options are endless and so is the potential for recipe creation. We have a collection of Instant Pot Air Fryer recipes for each design to keep your meals healthy and crispy.
Anything fried tastes better but not necessarily healthier. Air fryers have given many households the option with less guilt. While recipes are still able to be crispy, they aren’t submerged in a bath of oil. Air fryers use less oil and rely on the circulation of heat similar to a convection oven.
The way air fryers are designed has significantly evolved in recent years giving the public more options. While more options are great, a consumer can get lost in the decision-making process. Instant Pot has a great line offering different designs of air fryers to meet different needs.
We’ve reviewed the Air Fryer Vortex Oven here. It’s a great stand-alone option when you want to cook a small batch without heating a whole oven or house. There are trays that stack so that you can air fry a larger amount than the traditional basket style air fryer. Instant Pot still offers the basket style that most people are familiar with and comfortable using for ease of cleanup. A lot of Instant Pot veterans are excited about the Air Fryer Lid. The hassle of transferring dishes to broil in the oven are long gone with this new accessory.

The Instant Pot® Duo Crisp™ + Air Fryer
If you are on the market for a pressure cooker, you can buy the 2-in-1 Instant Pot Duo Crisp Air Fryer & Pressure Cooker. With 11-in-1 functionality, it does everything a regular Instant Pot does but simply switching the pressure cooker lid for the air fryer lid, you’ve got an air fryer at the touch of a button. The removable lids help cut down on the weight when you have to move your IP from one place to another. It is currently only available in the 8-quart size. Keep in mind most online recipes are created for 6-quart pressure cookers, so only some slight adjustments will be needed to compensate for the size.
