Instant Pot Air Fryer vs. Air Fryer Lid – Duo Crisp or Crisp Lid HONEST THOUGHTS

Instant Pot Air Fryer vs. Air Fryer Lid – Duo Crisp or Crisp Lid HONEST THOUGHTS
Hey guys! I’m Lisa Childs, welcome back! In this new video, I’ll be sharing with you my honest thoughts on the Instant Pot Air Fryer vs a Pressure Cooker Air Fryer Lid. My lid is the Mealthy Crisp Lid but this video applies to the concept with any brand of air fryer lid such as the Instant Pot Duo Crisp, Mealthy Crisp Lid, Crock Pot Express Crisp, PowerXL Grill Air Fryer Combo, or Ninja Foodi 9-in-1 Pressure Cooker and Air Fryer.

A pressure cooker air fryer combo can be a good alternative to having two full appliances, but I’ll tell you why I prefer one over the other and when you should buy an air fryer over an air fryer lid or vice versa. Air fryer lids are separate appliances that sit on top of your Instant Pot or pressure cooker and turns the Instant Pot into an air fryer.

That 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner comment sold it for me! It is NEVER the same!

My issue with the stand alone IP air fryer is that it has a (toxic) nonstick coating on all of the parts that touch food. The reason why I love my Instant Pot is that it is non toxic- its internal parts are stainless steel. The day IP makes a stand alone air fryer with a stainless steel inside, I will buy one. Until then, I will continue to use my Mealthy lid.

I haven’t tried mine out yet, the air fryer lid, but I eventually will. I would have never got it at full price, because no…I did get the IP one for $42 on Cyber Monday. Happy to add it to the collection. I don’t use my IP as much as I would like, and maybe that’s because it did not come with a recipe book of any sort. That might have helped. I got the IP and the Lid at deeply discounted prices, so they weren’t a complete waste. At least the lid will give me some idea of whether I might want to invest in an actual air fryer in the future and at the same time make my IP more useful for now. Thank you for the video, it’s always useful to get others opinions. Happy New Year 🎊
