Understanding the dilemma households are facing to prepare a tasty meal in little time, the creators of Instant Pot® have launched this game-changing Duo Crisp. It is now super easy to cook absolutely anything in an Instant Pot®, including air frying your favourite food to a crispy deliciousness.

For the first time, you can combine pressure cooking and air-frying in one kitchen appliance for the most tasty and wholesome meals.

This 11-in-1 kitchen appliance with an eight-litre volume is quick, easy and will turn mealtimes into lip-smacking feasts for those of us with healthy (and big) appetites. 

The Instant Pot Duo Crisp + Air Fryer comes with two lids: A pressure cooker lid and an air fryer lid. So, preparing a delicious meal is as easy as swapping the Instant Pot’s lids and pressing a button. The pressure cooker lid has six functions in one: Pressure cook, sauté, steam, slow cook, sous vide, and to keep food warm. 

Once you’re done with the pressure cooker lid, swap to the air fryer lid and use the EvenCrisp technology to air fry, roast, bake, grill and even dehydrate your food.
