ABOUT AIR FRYERS

Anything fried tastes better but is not necessarily healthier. Air fryers have given many households the option to make delicious fried comfort food with less guilt. While the foods are still able to be crispy, they aren’t submerged in a bath of oil. Air fryers use less oil (if any) and rely on the circulation of high heat similar to a convection oven.

Air fryers are more versatile too. In addition to cooking fried foods like french fries, fritters, and falafels, air frying also lets you grill a steak, roast a chicken or vegetables, bake a pizza or potatoes or meatloaf, dehydrate fruit, or crisp up some veggie chips.

The design of air fryers has significantly evolved in recent years. While more options are great, a consumer can get lost in the decision-making process. Instant Pot has a great line offering different models of air fryers to meet different needs.

INSTANT POT AIR FRYER LID

The Air Fryer Lid turns your existing Instant Pot into an air fryer enabling you to Air Fry, Broil, Bake, Roast, Reheat, & Dehydrate food. This air fryer is great if you have a regular Instant Pot already as the lid comes separately along with an air fryer basket that goes inside the pot.

A lot of Instant Pot veterans are excited about the Air Fryer Lid. You can pressure cook in the Instant Pot, then switch the lid to the Air Fryer Lid to broil or crisp up the food. The hassle of transferring dishes to broil in the oven are long gone with this new accessory. Or you can insert the basket and make crispy chicken wings just with the Air Fryer function.

Please note that Air Fryer Lid is only compatible with stainless steel inner pots and NOT compatible with ceramic inner pots. Air Fryer Lid is NOT compatible with the following models: Smart WiFi 60, Smart Bluetooth, Duo Evo Plus 60, Duo SV 60 or Max 60 nor is it interchangeable with other pressure cookers brands. Before purchasing check the model you currently own. 

INTSTANT POT® DUO CRISP™ + AIR FRYER

This is an 8-quart Instant Pot + oven + air fryer lid all in one box! Great if you want to upgrade to a newer, bigger model and get the air fryer, roasting, dehydrating (11 in total) functionalities as well as pressure cooking. 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 here.

Most recipes designed for the Instant Pot Air Fryer lid can be made in the Duo Crisp, just consider that the pot is a bit bigger as it’s an 8-quart IP (hence you can make more!). Instant Pot Duo Crisp Pressure Cooker & Airfryer Review

INSTANT POT VORTEX AIR FRYER OVEN

This is a stand-alone oven and air fryer in one appliance. It’s a great 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.
