What Does It Do?
For all those intrigued by air frying, but not having the kitchen space to get a new air fryer, Instant Pot has a new add on lid that allows you to air fry your favorite foods.
You can buy the air fryer lid separately, or buy the Instant Pot Duo Crisp that comes with an air fryer lid.
So what does this lid really do? Well, the better question would be - what can it not do?
- It can quickly crisp up your frozen tater tots and chicken nuggets without you needing to dunk them in hot oil.
- It blows super hot air to cook your favorite foods without any extra oil or fat, and crisps them up while still letting the moisture in them remain, letting you enjoy your favorite crispy and crunchy foods guilt free.
- It allows you to turn not-so-delicious foods like veggies super crispy, which can encourage you to eat healthy.
Is it Worth It?
Long story short, it is definitely worth it. Even if you’re not an air frying enthusiast- who knows, you might just turn into one after you have it. While the Instant Pot air fryer lid does work well, remember that it is great only for small batches, which is perfect if you’re cooking for one or two people.
It works really great when you make an Instant Pot recipe and want to crisp up the top, like on our Cherry Cobbler.
However, if you have a family, you might be better off purchasing a full sized air fryer, so that you don’t have to work in batches.
Must Have Air Frying Accessories
While air frying in your Instant Pot is actually super easy, you’ll still need a few other accessories to make your entire cooking experience a breeze. Here are a few essentials you might need to get your hands on.
