Instant Pot is launching a variety of new products from blender to air fryers we have now a good line of Instant Pot choices.

One of the newest models is the Instant Pot Duo Crisp 8-qt. Programmable Pressure Cooker and Air Fryer.

The Duo Crisp is the initial air fryer/ stress cooker combination from Instant Pot. We’ve actually had it for a few weeks now and test every function and features with different recipes and a lot of fun!

Instant Pot Duo Crisp Overview

The Duo Crisp is the most recent version of electric pressure cooker made by Instant Pot. It is presently only available in the 8-quart size.

This two-in-one Instant Pot has 2 different lids for the two various functions. Use the pressure cooker lid with the pressure cook, sauté, heavy steam, sluggish cook, and also sous vide setups.

Swap over to the domed air fryer lid to use the air fry, roast, bake, broil, and also dehydrate settings.

The Instant Pot Duo Crisp is a kitchen appliance that has multiple functions, consisting of; stress chef, heavy steam, slow-moving chef, dehydrate, sous vide, sauté, air fry, roast, bake, broil, and maintain cozy.

The fundamental style is very comparable to various other Instantaneous Pots, it has a base, an internal pot, and a pressure cover.

Where it differs from other Instant Pots is it also has an air fryer cover. This air fryer lid allows you to air fry foods in the very same inner pot that you press cook in.

This can be fantastic when stress cooking meats or other recipes that you wish to crisp up at the end. No more transferring your dish to the oven for melting cheese or crisping up meals.

One example of just how you can utilize the stress stove complied with by the air fryer is with ribs. Ribs are so fast to make in the stress stove, yet in order to be perfect, they have to be crisped up after stress cooking to develop that outer crust we enjoy a lot. Right here is a recipe that you can have a look at so you can see simply how attractive the ribs end up!

Best Features

Two Completely Separate Lids

We love how Instant Pot has dealt with the two-lid set up of the Instant Pot Crisp.

Both lids are totally removable, which lowers the weight you have to lift at any type of once. The Immediate Pot knows what cover you’re using and will not enable you to make use of a pressure cooking feature when the air fryer cover gets on (and vice versa).

The stress stove lid is the same as the Ultra as well as the Nova, so it has the fast launch button that instantly resets to the Sealed placement when the lid is shut.

If you know with other models of Instant Pot, you likely currently know and like the take care of slots made use of for resting your stress cooking lid after cooking. The air fryer lid fits ingeniously into these manage ports. This makes it so very easy to line up the lid as well as base sensing units needed to power the air frying cover.


Due to the link between the cover and also the base, there is no power cable on the air fryer lid.

The air frying lid likewise has a trendy matching tray Use it with the Instantaneous Pot logo design facing upwards to have a safe place to put the lid when it’s warm. As soon as the lid has cooled down, you can transform the tray over and also the air frying cover will lock in area for secure storage space.

8-quart Size

Truthfully, I like that the Duo Crisp just is available in an 8-quart size. While I believe that the 6-quart stress cooker is perfect for many households the majority of the time, it’s tough to air fry much in a 6-quart.

Nevertheless, I seem like the 8-quart makes it much easier to prepare a normal family-sized section utilizing the air fryer features.

Just the Essential Buttons

Love that the control panel is incorporated with buttons for each and every function, instead of having the air frying buttons different on the lid.

Veteran visitors of this blog recognize that I have little use for the Instantaneous Pot preset buttons. (The Smart Program buttons confuse brand-new cooks, and I typically locate the pre-programmed times are various than I advise.).

With the Duo Crisp, Split second Pot has actually removed all the pre-programmed buttons (like Poultry and also Rice) and include just the must-use function switches like Stress Cook and also Saute.

Well Designed Accessories

Each of the accessories that does come with the Duo Crisp is wisely made.

The timeless trivet with deals with that has featured Instant Pot designs over the last few years has actually been upgraded to make sure that the handles swivel to the other side and end up being a durable tall shelf to relax food on.

The double-layered air fry basket is truly good. The legs move off to make it easier to clean up in between the grooves. And also the stainless steel insert has 2 big holes to make it easy to squeeze and also remove it from the pot.

Also, all oven-safe kitchenware is secure to utilize in the internal pot with the air fryer cover.
